Pedaling for Parkinson's
The Pedaling for Parkinson's program uses high-cadence cycling (80-90rpm) to forestall the progression of the disease, alleviate many symptoms, and even reduce medication. Results vary due to the broad range of Parkinson's symptoms, but it is clear that extended periods of forceful exercise have positive effects. Care partner participation is encouraged, but not required.
This program is for individuals diagnosed with Idiopathic PD and aged 30-75. Participant must complete and sign a consent form, and get medical clearance from their doctor. Participant must also agree to periodically monitor their progress throughout the program.
--Free participation for the first 8 weeks; meeting 3 times a week
--Cycling instructor/leader with Parkinson's knowledge
--Community engagement, and fun!
What Do I Need:
Please wear comfortable, athletic attire and shoes. We do ask that you wear a heart rate monitor.
Be sure to drink plenty of water both before and after class!
