LIVESTRONG is a free 12-week  program designed for adult cancer survivors.

This small group program fulfills the important need of supporting cancer survivors in our community. Survivors will work with Y staff, trained in supportive cancer care, to safely achieve their goals such as:

»  Building Strength;
»  Increasing Flexibility and Endurance;
»  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 12-week program includes*:

  • Two 75 to 90-minute sessions per week
  • Cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, balance and flexibility exercises
  • Fitness and quality of life assessments before and after participation
  • YMCA-certified instructors helping participants every step of the way

BONUS: Includes a FREE family membership for the duration of the 12 weeks.

*Requires medical clearance from a physician. Open to adults 18 years or older at no cost.
