Androgen-Deprivation Therapy (ADT)
ADT reduces the levels of testosterone in the body to slow the growth of cancer or shrink it. As a result of low testosterone, patients experience fatigue, loss of lean muscles mass, changes in bone density, increase in adipose tissue (fat) and chances in mood.
For men who have been prescribed Lucrin (ADT) you may be enrolled in the Man Plan, which includes 16 face to face group sessions that are subsidized, with an out of pocket cost of $5 per class. On the Man Plan you my join any of our Men’s Group Fitness classes.
