Livestrong

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 a research based program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health.

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA focuses on the emotional well-being of survivors and their families by providing a supportive community where people can connect during treatment and beyond.

Program Description

This 12-week small group program is designed for adult cancer survivors who have become deconditioned or chronically fatigued from treatment or disease.

During this program you receive:

  • A FREE 3-month YMCA membership for the survivor and the support person (family member or friend), granting full access to the YMCA facilities
  • A Fitness Assessment
  • Two 90-minute classes each week
  • A small group setting (4-6 people)
  • Unlimited support

 

Program Goals
  • Improve energy levels & self esteem
  • Build muscle mass and strength
  • Increase flexibility and endurance
  • Improve functional ability to do everyday tasks
  • Reduce the severity of therapy side effects and prevent unwanted weight changes
  • Develop an ongoing fitness program for participants to continue and practice a healthy lifestyle, not only as a part of recovery, but as a way of life.
