LIVESTRONG Exercise Program For Cancer Survivors

NEW LIVESTRONG Exercise Program For Cancer Survivors

Effect of the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA Exercise Program on Cancer Related Outcomes in Cancer Survivors (NCT02112149)

Studies suggest that exercise can reduce the risk of a breast cancer recurrence. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a 12-week, small group exercise program developed for adult cancer survivors. The program is designed to help build muscle mass and muscle strength, increase flexibility and endurance, and improve functional ability. It may also reduce treatment side effects, prevent weight gain, and improve energy levels and self esteem. This study is evaluating the effect of the LIVESTRONG exercise program in 200 cancer survivors. This study is enrolling survivors of breast and other types of cancer.
