Parkinson’s Circuit Training
Exercise is one of the best ways to alleviate symptoms related to Parkinson’s disease. (PD). Keeping the body moving is critical for individuals with Parkinson’s. Kelly Performance and Wellness trains people with Parkinson’s for improved strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance. Each class is a blend of cardio and strength exercises with an emphasis on strength training.
A typical class includes a 10-minute warm up followed by 50 minutes of rotations through several training stations. Each station features fun and challenging exercises that are either timed or based on a particular number of repetitions. There will be 10 – 12 stations per session.
This type of energetic circuit training increases strength and aerobic fitness while burning calories. Most importantly, it takes participants through specific ranges of motion to work on and improve balance and stability.
Similar in principle to the Parkinson’s Circuit Training, this particular course would be at a faster pace working different muscles all at the same time with minimum rest.
Participants build camaraderie with one another as they nurture a peer support system. Increase your confidence and overall health and well being by joining our Circuit Training.
