The Parkinson's FIT Program
Maintain balance, mobility, strength, endurance and the ability to perform daily routines.
A diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease can be frightening. But as with most health challenges, the right kind of exercise program can help alleviate some of them. In some cases, it can even reverse symptoms.

Parkinson's FIT Workouts
ROCK STEADY BOXING
RSB is based on the principle of “forced intense” exercise. The idea of “fighting back” in this non-contact, boxing workout, goes farther than the physical benefits anyone can gain from training like a boxer (improved agility, balance, strength, mobility, stamina). No boxing experience required.
PWR! Moves is a Parkinson’s specific exercise approach that directly targets four foundational movements to counteract the primary deficits shown by research to interfere with everyday mobility. The session structure can adapt to different needs of the participants and can progress. PWR!Moves is a Parkinson’s exercise revolution designed to improve movement at all levels.
This indoor cycling class is designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s Disease. Working in a group setting in a well designed cycling program has been shown to help in symptom management of the disease.
