Gib Blackman's LIVESTONG Success!

Gib Blackman and Livestrong

"My wife Bonnie and I rejoined the Lake Highlands YMCA in early 2018. I  was looking for a program to regain my strength and stamina after completing radiation and chemotherapy treatments for tongue cancer in the fall/winter of 2017. The LIVESTRONG program seemed like the perfect exercise for my needs after discussing the program with Deb Brackenridge, wellness instructor. 

Initially, the routine was tough but through the instructor’s encouragement and the fun during the sessions, I was able to complete the program. It was exactly what I needed to get back into a regular exercise routine. It lifted my spirits as well. I would recommend the LIVESTRONG program for cancer patients who want to start or reboot a medium intensity exercise program that is instructor led."
