Helping cancer survivors begin the journey toward recovery.

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is a 12-week program to help you ease back into fitness and maintain confidence. It is provided at no cost to the participant thanks to the generosity of LIVESTRONG at the YMCA alumni and those who donate to our Annual Support Campaign.

As a cancer survivor, you know the tremendous toll the disease and its treatment can take on your spirit, mind and body. You want to begin to heal and reclaim your health. But where do you start? LIVESTRONG at the YMCA can help.


Taking it at your own pace

No one experiences cancer in the same way. Participants come to the program with different physical challenges and lifestyle goals. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA provides you with individualized attention and an approach to recovery that targets the areas you need to rebuild. There is no competition here—physical activities are tailored to match only what you’re able to accomplish.

Expert, Caring Staff

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA staff have been specially trained to work with cancer survivors and patients. They’re exercise experts who understand your unique physical needs and concerns and help you address them safely. They’re also relationship builders with the empathy and the ability to connect with and develop relationships with and among cancer survivors and their families.

How does the program work?

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA focuses on you—the whole person—not the disease. The free, 12-week program meets twice a week using traditional exercise methods to ease you back into fitness and help you maintain your confidence. You’ll focus on:

  • Building muscle mass and strength
  • Increasing flexibility and endurance
  • Improving confidence and self-esteem
