It takes a variety of activities to manage Parkinson’s symptoms.
The goal of the 60 minute program below is to incorporate a variety of activities into your workout to combat some of the mobility limitations associated with Parkinson’s. You can adapt the format to include different activities that you enjoy. You can also structure your workouts across a week, alternating strength, agility, balance and flexibility training on alternate days.
