LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA
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.
The Y offers programs that help you meet your goals for a healthy mind, body, and spirit! Join a small group of peers for a more personalized workout, learn proper lifting techniques, and more! Keep checking back for programs as they rotate throughout the year!
This unique class is designed especially for individuals with special needs. SUPERSTARS is a movement class where participants can develop motor skills coordination, stamina and strength. More importantly the class is an opportunity to make friends, provide a safe environment for self advocacy, and have fun! A positive attitude is all that is required.
