In September 2012, the Lake View YMCA introduced a fitness class called “Movin’ Up”. With the help of dedicated member, Lenette Collias, herself a breast cancer survivor, this program was created in an effort to provide support to individuals with cancer.
Movin’ Up has grown into a supportive community within the Lake View YMCA center and includes those who are maintaining their current health or journeying through an injury, illness, disease or life event.
Movin’ Up is taught by long time YMCA personal trainer and group fitness instructor, Mondale Hackett, who is a certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor and Cancer Exercise Specialist. With the understanding that fatigue, weakness and wight gain can result from both illness and treatment, the instructor focuses on each individual to restore energy, increase strength, improve stamina and range of motion.
Drop into the Lake View YMCA and try the class as a guest! Movin’ Up runs every Wednesday, 9:00-9:45am at the Lake View YMCA. Contact us at 773-248-3333 or stop by the membership desk for more information.
