Taking Action and Changing Lives

Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. The Y and the LIVESTRONG® Foundation have joined together to create LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, a research-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health. 

Participants work with Y instructors, trained in the elements of supportive cancer care & post rehab exercise, to safely achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.

This program includes:

  • Free 12-week YMCA Family Membership
  • Two 90 minute classes per week
  • A combination of individual instruction and group activities
  • Workouts include cardiovascular exercise, strength training, stretching, and balance work
  • Full access to all Cedar Rapids Metropolitan Area YMCA branches
