LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is designed for adult cancer survivors who have recently become de-conditioned or chronically fatigued from their treatment or disease. A final goal of the program is to assist participants in developing their own physical fitness program so they can continue to practice a healthy lifestyle, not only as part of their recovery, but as a way of life.
The program consists of one 12-week session, where participants work with Y staff twice a week, and is provided without cost to participants. YMCA fitness instructors work with each participant to fit the program to their individual needs. The instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise and supportive cancer care. The program is conducted outside of medical facilities to emphasize that LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is about health, not disease.
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA runs at Eastside starting Febraury 19, Tuesdays & Thursdays from 12:00 – 1:30 pm. Contact Christine Walker at 341-3082 for any questions.
