ADAPTIVE EXERCISE

Pedaling for Parkinson’s

Pedaling for Parkinson’s is an indoor stationary bicycle class designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s Disease. The class focuses on “forced exercise” — which uses an external source to help someone exert themselves longer and at higher intensities than they would be able to do on their own — to reduce symptoms in people with PD up to 35%. This program is as encouraging and fun as it is effective. For members only.

In order to demonstrate the reduction in symptoms, participants will answer pre-assessment questions (during registration) before beginning the program and quarterly assessments will be offered as a way to note progress. Participants will also need to bring a medical clearance and informed consent forms to their first class (available in registration). For ages 30-75.

Held at the Arapahoe Y
