OUR PHILOSOPHY

In alignment with our mission to improve the well being of people diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, our fitness program has been developed using the most current research available regarding Parkinson's and exercise physiology.

Parkinson's is a complex neurodegenerative disease that affects people differently. While categories have been established according to the Hoehn and Yahr scale based upon presence and severity, we understand that these physical symptoms are fluid among people with Parkinson's and that some days are better than others with regard to those symptoms.

As such our fitness program is based on these categories with the idea and understanding that modifications will need to be made based on each persons physical abilities that day.

Our instructors' first priority is the safety and health of each person participating in our programs. We will always offer variations to exercises to create and maintain an environment that is comfortable and encouraging for everyone. This will allow a broader spectrum of people to participate, and ensure each person receives the appropriate level and intensity of exercise to improve their physical capabilities, while staying involved with the group as a whole.
