STANLY COUNTY FAMILY YMCA
The Cool Water Pool will remain closed Wednesday, March 29. We apologize for this inconvenience. A pool maintenance team was on site today and will return tomorrow. We hope to open as soon as possible. Stay tuned to notifications of the status of the pool on our website, facebook, email, and at the Y facility. Thank you for your patience during this matter.
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.
To learn more about the program and the positive impact it has on participants, watch the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA video.
