The Beat PD Today program is an affordable exercise class based on national research around the benefit of exercise to alleviate Parkinson’s symptoms and slow the progression of the disease.
Every workout is scalable to each individual within the group class.
The program focuses on full functional body movements used in everyday life.
Sessions will use a variety of basic equipment, such as ropes, TRX, kettle bells, BOSUs, weights and medicine balls.
The classes encourage brain stimulation, challenge balance and stability and teach proper technique and form - all in an encouraging group setting.
