LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is an evidence-based program that helps adult cancer survivors reclaim their health and well-being following a cancer diagnosis. We offer this program to the survivor at no cost; it includes a free YMCA membership for the participant and their family. Participating YMCAs create a welcoming area in which survivors can improve their strength and physical fitness, lessen the harshness of therapy side effects, develop supportive relationships, and improve their quality of life.
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA focuses on you - the whole person - not the disease. The free, 12-week program meets twice a week for 90 minutes, using traditional exercise methods to ease you back into fitness and help you maintain a healthy weight. You'll focus on:
- building muscle mass and strength
- increasing flexibility and endurance
- improving confidence and self-esteem
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA allows you to work at your own pace through the guidance of our staff who have specifically trained for this program. We also offer a safe, comfortable place for you to work with others who have been affected by cancer that you can share stories and inspiration with.
