It’s been just under 12 months since I joined the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program. When I joined the program, I was 12 months past treatment and happy to be alive. I wasn’t in the best shape, in fact, I was in pretty poor physical shape. During my illness and chemotherapy, I lost over 35 pounds, fat and muscle, then gained it all back in fat. Joining the program was the best decision I made in quite a long time. The program helped me get back to normal physically. I met people like me, people who knew what I went though and was still going though. I was given tips on nutrition and exercise, but most importantly, shown how to take care of me. Although the program lasted 12 weeks, I retained my membership and routinely interact with LiveStrong staff.
I highly recommend the program.
