Pedaling for Parkinson's

South Tampa Family YMCA • 4411 S Himes Ave TampaFL  33611 Organized by Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA

About this event

Description

This 8 week FREE program uses high-cadence cycling (80 to 90 rpm) 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. For Parkinson's patients, these can include reduction of tremors and dyskinesia, as well as cardiovascular benefits, increased leg strength, and better balance and core strength.


Members will need to get a Medical Screening and Permission form completed PRIOR to exercising in the Pedaling for Parkinson's class.
