LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a research-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health.
Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals such as building muscle and strength, increasing flexibility and endurance, and improving confidence and self-esteem. By focusing on the whole person, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer care in spirit, mind, and body.
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a FREE 12-week group training program that includes a family Y membership for cancer survivors. Participants receive one-on-one attention in a group setting, which creates a safe and comfortable workout environment.
The program is now being offered at locations in both Lincoln and Omaha. A supportive, certified instructor leads a small group through cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, balance, and flexibility exercises at two sessions per week for 12 weeks.
