LIVESTRONG at the YMCA

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a research-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health. This program is offered at no cost to any adult cancer survivor, and also includes a complimentary household membership to the YMCA for the duration of the program.

In this 12-week group training program, participants receive one-on-one attention in a group setting, which creates a safe and comfortable workout environment. 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.

To date, the YMCA of Greater Omaha has served over 800 individuals through the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program. Of those participants, the following have improved or maintained in the following categories: 93% – aerobic function, 96% – strength, 80% – flexibility, and 90% – balance.
