LIVESTRONG at the YMCA
The Y and LIVESTRONG joined together to create LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a free 12-week physical activity and well being program designed to help adult cancer survivors achieve their holistic health goals. The small group, research-based program offers cancer survivors a safe, supportive environment to participate in physical and social activities.
Survivors work with YMCA certified instructors to build muscle mass, strength, flexibility and endurance while improving confidence and self-esteem. In addition to physical benefits, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA focuses on the emotional well-being of survivors and their families by providing a supportive community for people impacted by cancer.
The LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program is available at every Gaston County Family YMCA location.
