LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a free small group fitness program for adult cancer survivors that empower them to improve their quality of life. Each 12-week session is comprised of classes that meet for 75 minutes two times per week. A free Y membership is included for the duration of the sessions. Class size is limited to 6 participants per session.
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA helps adult cancer survivors reclaim their health and well-being following a cancer diagnosis. Participating YMCAs seek to create a welcoming community in which survivors can improve their strength and physical fitness, diminish the severity of therapy side effects, develop supporting relationships and improve the quality of their life.
LIVESTONG at the YMCA focuses on the whole person – not the disease. The free, 12 week program meets twice a week using traditional exercise methods to help participants:
- Improve energy levels and self-esteem
- Build muscle mass and strength
- Increase flexibility and endurance
- Improve ability to do everyday tasks
- Develop an on-going fitness plan to continue practicing a healthy lifestyle
The class is offered Monday & Wednesday at 12:30pm. First session begins August 1st. Please call Deb Mitchell at 602-212-6081 for more information.
