LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is a physical activity and well-being initiative that helps people affected by cancer reach their holistic health goals. Our organization was one of 16 Ys to receive a grant to implement the program as a result of the 2011 LIVESTRONG Community Impact Project, an online community voting campaign, bringing the foundation’s overall investment to the survivor care program to $2.3 million.

Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a research-based physical activity and well-being program. Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA Program

With the help of our Altru Health System partners, including the Altru Cancer Center and Altru Outreach Therapy,  our certified instructors and coaches work one-on-one with our participants to ensure that we are achieving our participants’ goals while they provide us with valuable feedback that will help enhance our program.

Program Details

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a cancer survivor exercise program in a supportive environment. It is designed to improve cardiovascular fitness, strength, balance and flexibility. Regular attendance and participation creates a group exercise experience and a supportive environment.

Classes run 2 x/week for 12 weeks. Each class runs approximately 75 minutes.

A caregiver, family member or friend is welcome to accompany the participant during the program.

Classes are under the direction of certified LIVESTRONG at the YMCA instructors, YMCA instructor coaches/personal trainers, and Altru physical and occupational therapists.

The program is free. Non-Y members who participate in the program will receive a complimentary Y membership during the program and one month following graduation.

We have formed a LIVESTRONG at the YMCA Alumni Group to provide post-graduates the opportunity to continue meeting and exercising with LIVESTRONG friends. This group is guided by LIVESTRONG at the YMCA instructors and Alumni participants.

For information on the class schedules, please contact Patti McEnroe at the Y. 

A morning session is currently underway. New class dates TBA.
