LIVESTRONG®

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is a free twelve-week, small group program designed to help cancer survivors get moving again.

Reclaim Total Health

Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. The Y and LIVESTRONG have joined together to create LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, a research-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health.

Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG®at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.

Our goal is to help participants:

  • Build muscle mass and muscle strength
  • Increase flexibility and endurance
  • Improve functional ability
  • Reduce severity of therapy side effects
  • Prevent unwanted weight changes
  • Improve energy levels and self-esteem
  • Assist in developing a physical fitness program to continue practicing a healthy lifestyle
