Livestrong

LIVESTRONG WITH THE YMCA

For many cancer survivors, getting back to physical activity and regaining strength is a priority. In partnership with the Livestrong Foundation, the Muskegon YMCA offers a small-group program that allows those who are living with, through, or beyond cancer to regain strength and connect with other cancer survivors.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Livestrong with the YMCA helps cancer survivors by focusing on their health, not the disease. The program offers people affected by cancer a safe, supportive environment to participate in physical exercise classes focused on continuing to improve their physical health twice per week over 12 weeks. Our 75-minute classes include ​​endurance conditioning, strength training, balance, and flexibility exercises.

Livestrong with the YMCA staff have been specifically trained to work with cancer survivors and patients and follow American College of Sport Medicine and American Cancer Society exercise guidelines. Our coaches are exercise experts who can understand survivors unique physical needs and concerns and help address them safely. They’re also relationship builders with the empathy and ability to connect and develop relationships with and among cancer survivors and their families.

We recognize that no one experiences cancer in the same way. Participants come to the program with different physical challenges and lifestyle goals. Livestrong provides 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 what you’re able to accomplish.

WHO IT'S FOR

Those whose lives have been affected by cancer will find a safe, supportive environment to ease back into physical fitness and reclaim their health.
