YMCA of the Triangle

Header slogan


LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is an evidence-based program for adult cancer survivors. Survivors participate in a health and fitness program with 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. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a fully-funded program through the YMCA's Annual We Build People Campaign.

Sessions and Locations

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA sessions run for 12 weeks and participants meet twice a week for approximately 75 minutes. We will do our best to enroll participants in the first available program, but space is limited. More classes will be forming, please call 919-582-9396 for more details.

Due to the most recent guidelines from state and local officials, we are offering both virtual and in-person classes.
