LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is 12-week program for adult cancer survivors. Survivors participate in a health and fitness program with nine other survivors in a small group setting. Through the program, certified YMCA instructors help patients build muscle mass and strength, increase flexibility and endurance, and improve energy levels and self-esteem.
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA focuses on the whole person, not the disease. YMCA instructors are trained in post-rehab exercise, nutrition and supportive cancer care.
The program meets year-round at YMCAs throughout the Triangle. Classes meet twice weekly and last approximately 75 minutes. Sessions are limited to 12 participants.
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is offered at no charge to participants thanks to support for the YMCA's Annual Campaign.
Cancer survivors must provide medical clearance forms at the time of registration.
