I have heard that the day someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's is like a bomb getting dropped on your life.
But it is not a death sentence. This is not the end of the road. There are still good days ahead but it will take a little more effort. You can live with PD. Thousands of people do it every day. You are not alone.
Don't give up. Call or write me and I will help you take control of your body again. I know what I am doing. We can do it together!
My father had Parkinson's. He was told by his doctors that exercise was too risky. He was told to just sit down, take his meds and try to live a happy life. It didn't work. He became wheelchair bound almost immediately and suffered a long, slow, humiliating death.
My mission is to make sure that this never happens to anyone fighting PD ever again.
Regular exercise is critical for any one fighting Parkinson's Disease. It is the onlyprovenway to protect the brain against the effects of PD. Exercise has even been shown to slow, stop and even reverse the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease.
But, exercise is hard! It's tough to make yourself get up and get moving. Parkinson's often makes exercise even more difficult with the depression and apathy that often accompanies it.
But, when you do get up to exercise, what should you do? Lift? Stretch? Walk? Boxing? Cycling? How much? How often? How hard?
I have been working with people fighting Parkinson's since 2015. I know how to help you make the most of your time by doing exercises that directly address your symptoms. Some of the most common problems are:
-Gait (walking) disorders
-Loss of Strength
Exercise in these areas can make all the difference. You can regain your life. You will be amazed what you can accomplish despite having PD.
True, something is better than nothing but your time is important. Your time in the gym needs to be maximized and used effectively.
Also, without informed coaching and programming, exercise can be counterproductive or even dangerous. Without regular motivation and variety workouts can get boring and uninspiring.
But, with me, you will learn the exercises that have been shown to combat the symptoms of Parkinson's directly. You will get healthier and stronger so that your body is less susceptible to the effects of Parkinson's. With a combination of PD specific exercises, strength training and cardiovascular training, we can slow, stop and even reverse the symptoms of PD.
This is too important not to take seriously!
