In 2007, LIVESTRONG® partnered with the YMCA to create LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, a 12-week physical activity program designed to get cancer survivors back on their feet.

Researchers from Yale University and Dana Farber Cancer Institute conducted a research study on the impact of the program on participants’ cancer-related outcomes. They found that participants experienced significant increases in physical activity, overall quality of life and fitness performance as well as decreases in cancer-related fatigue.

With LIVESTRONG®, survivors participate in free or low-cost customized exercise regimens catered to their individual needs from certified fitness instructors. The instructors are trained in cancer survivorship, post-rehabilitation exercise and supportive cancer care. Survivors receive a membership at the YMCA for the duration of the program. The program is offered for free or low-cost at the discretion of the YMCA.
