LIVESTRONG® AT THE YMCA

The Y and LIVESTRONG® have joined together to create LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, a physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors achieve their holistic health goals.
 
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a twelve-week, small group program designed for adult cancer survivors. This program fulfills the important need of supporting the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their "new normal". The program is conducted outside of medical facilities to emphasize that LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is about health, not disease.
 
Our goal is to help participants build muscle mass and muscle strength, increase flexibility and endurance and improve functional ability. Additional goals include reducing the severity of therapy side effects, preventing unwanted weight changes and improving energy levels and self-esteem. A final goal of the program is to assist participants in developing their own physical fitness program so they can continue to practice a healthy lifestyle, not only as part of their recovery, but as a way of life. In addition to the physical benefits, the program provides participants a supportive environment and a feeling of community with their fellow survivors, YMCA staff and members.
 
YMCA fitness instructors work with each participant to fit the program to their individual needs. The instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise and supportive cancer care.
 

PROGRAM COST

This program is FREE and without cost to participants. Also included is a free 3-month Old Colony YMCA membership. The Y provides trained instructors, wellness facility, and equipment for participants.

Why We are Able to do What We Do

We have the great fortune to have a team of scientists, led by Dr. Greg Maguire, that have decades of experience creating stem cell based therapeutics and cosmeceuticals. We are affiliated with and share research with a number of other leading research facilities.

Dr. Maguire, with more than 30 years of stem cell research, was a part of the science teams that ultimately created a number of the earlier generation stem cell products in the skin care market. This latest technology has benefited tens of thousands of people around the world through our private label program.   We are excited to announce that all products with the NeoGenesis brand are unique to NeoGenesis. No other company will have these special formulations.
