The Darien YMCA’s “revive” cancer rehabilitation program is open to local residents who are currently undergoing or have undergone treatment in the past year.
The program is complimentary and its goal is to provide patients with renewed stamina for day-to-day living.
Revive participants receive twelve one-hour personal training sessions each week with one of the Y’s certified Cancer Exercise Specialist (CES) trainers.
They also receive a complimentary 3-month membership to the Darien YMCA, including access to the Wellness Center, pools, group fitness classes and other amenities. The program is made possible through fundraising events and private donations.
