LIVESTRONG at the YMCA
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a program for cancer survivors and those currently undergoing treatment, focuses on you- the whole person- not the disease. The free 12-week program meets twice a week for 60 minutes, using traditional exercise methods to ease you back into fitness and help you maintain a healthy weight. You’ll also learn about wellness, stress reduction and how to continue healthy habits after the program has ended. We encourage a warm spirit of community and provide a place for you to build friendships with others affected by cancer and an opportunity to share stories and inspiration.
To see when the next session will take place or for more information, please contact Kevin McKinnon – KMcKinnon@ymcafw.org or 817-433-8250.

Ditch the workout, join the party! A combination of Latin and International dances such as Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Mambo and Samba among others that are not only FUN but exhilarating! The dance themes create a dynamic, exciting and effective workout that’s easy to follow. The routines are presented at a slower rate than a traditional Zumba class, so the class is perfect for Active Older Adults or those who are new to Zumba!
