The Cheshire Community YMCA is seeking participants for its LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a free twelve week small group program designed for adults affected by cancer.
The program is conducted in the Wellness Center at the Y by staff trained in the elements of cancer, rehabilitative exercise and supportive cancer care. Each participant will have a program customized to fit their specific needs. The program goals are to help cancer survivors enhance their functional ability to complete everyday tasks, improve energy levels, strength, flexibility and endurance, reduce the severity of side effects from treatment and prevent weight changes, and to gain support from other cancer survivors, YMCA staff and members and to learn about resources available in our community.
The class will meet twice a week for 12 weeks. A full YMCA membership is included during the program. The Winter Session of LIVESTRONG at the YMCA will be held on Tuesday and Friday mornings from 5:45am-7:00am beginning the week of February 6th. The times and days of subsequent sessions will change with the needs of participants.
