LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA® is an evidence-based program for adult cancer survivors. Survivors participate in a health and fitness program with other survivors in a small group setting. Through the program, certified YMCA instructors help patients build muscle mass and strength, increase flexibility and endurance, and improve energy levels and self-esteem.

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA® focuses on the whole person, not the disease. YMCA instructors are trained in post-rehab exercise, nutrition and supportive cancer care. The program is a fully funded program through the YMCA of Greensboro Annual Campaign and is free and open to the community.

Program Qualifications

  • Any adult 18 years old or older who is living with or beyond cancer treatment
  • Must be ready for a physical activity program
  • YMCA membership is not required and is free and open to the community.
