RECLAIM: Cancer Exercise Video

Here at the Y, we know that staying active and reducing stress is sometimes easier said than done when you’ve been diagnosed with cancer. Whether you are exploring participating in our LiveSTRONG program, immunocompromised, or struggling to balance work and family life, we highly recommend the RECLAIM: Cancer Exercise Video Series created by the Eugene Texas YMCA. This video series is here for you to use from the comfort and safety of your home on your schedule. These videos draw from Eugene Y's specially trained instructors' experience working with survivors over the last five years and include proven post-treatment exercise and self-care content.
