Livestrong continues

Livestrong at the Y participants Gary Lester and Mike Chapman are pictured using the “TRX” straps in their sixth week (half way mark) of their cancer survivor program at the Y. Shown with Lester and Chapman is Chris Dolan, Livestrong at the Y certified fitness trainer, a special certification to aid cancer patients in muscle recovery. This is the second Livestrong class at the Y, a free 12-week health and fitness program. The next session will start in June, and the Y is looking for cancer survivors for its last group to culminate the year. You can be 20 years out of cancer treatment or be in treatment or anywhere in between to participate in Livestrong. Call the Warren YMCA to schedule an intake with Jennifer Goerlich, Livestrong member engagement coordinator. For more information, check out the program on Facebook or at For a sneak peek at the program, attend the graduation ceremony at the end of this session on June 27 at 11 a.m.
