VARIED EXERCISE CHOICE

Not sure what type of exercise you enjoy? Want to try something new? I can help you discover new and enjoyable types of exercise most likely to help with your symptoms.  A  varied  choice  of  exercise  is  the  best  plan  of  attack  for  Parkinson’s.

SAFE PRACTICE

One to one training means you can exercise with the security of knowing you are in a safe environment, your form is correct and there are no distractions.  All  exercise  will  be  within  your  capabilities with  a  view  to  progressing  each  week.  

MOTIVATE & CHALLENGE YOURSELF

I UNDERSTAND PD

I fully understand the many and varied symptoms of PD  &  have  taken  part  in  various  PD  Exercise  training  courses. I 'get' that you may be 'on' or 'off' and that you may feel anxious, lethargic or just need time to get going.

TYPES OF EXERCISE

AEROBIC

Walking with poles over varied terrains to improve gait confidence and balance.

Waling with or without poles over varied terrains and using visual cues can help with gait, freezing difficulties, arm swing and turning. Cycling also increases the heart rate for improved all round fitness.

STRENGTH

Increased muscle strength leads to improved posture, functionality & walking confidence

Weights, bands and pulleys help to challenge muscles and bones to remain healthy and strong which transfers to more confidence in everyday functional tasks and increases independence.

STRETCHING & BALANCE

Balance exercises increase core strength which leads to improved confidence in everyday life

Stretching improves flexibility, decreases regidity or stiffness and ensures you have a good range of movement in joints, leading to improved posture, a lower risk of falls and injuries. I often include Tai Chi movements and Yoga poses.

OBSTACLE CHALLENGES

Exercise has to be enjoyable If we want to commit to it regularly. Challenge yourself daily.

Challenges include changes in direction, weight shifting, turning and stopping, all of which improve balance, coordination and lead to greater agility,  core strength  &  functionality.

BOXING & COGNITIVE SKILLS

Non-contact boxing is a safe & fun way to gain power, strength and agility for people with PD

Great fun! Often mixed with a cognitive task such as counting or word finding, non-contact  boxing also improves power, stamina, agility and endurance  &  is  proven  to  be  beneficial  for people  with  Parkinson’s.

GYM MACHINES & FREE WEIGHTS

Gym machines provide a safe way to exercise aerobically for people with Parkinson’s

Gym machines such as rowers and bikes can be used to safely increase range of movement, improve core strength, aerobic endurance and decrease rigidity.
