Rise and Overcome - Natalie's Story

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 for 90 minutes, using traditional exercise methods to ease you back into fitness and help you maintain a healthy weight. You'll focus on:

  • building muscle mass and strength
  • increasing flexibility and endurance
  • improving confidence and self-esteem

Plus, learn about wellness, stress reduction techniques and how to continue healthful habits after the program has ended. Just as important, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA encourages a warm spirit of community - a safe, comfortable place for you to build companionship with others affected by cancer and share stories and inspiration.

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’s 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 and follow American College of Sports Medicine and American Cancer Society exercise guidelines. They're exercise experts who can understand your unique physical needs and concerns and help you address them safely. They're also relationship builders with the empathy and ability to connect with and develop relationships with and among cancer survivors and their families.
