Parkinson’s Exercise Class, Eugene
We work Parkinson’s specific exercises for flexibility and to begin to increase intensity. We then do a partner strength circuit addressing the needs of the participants. We then move into the boxing room for non-contact boxing where we hit heavy bags and speedbags. We work punching combinations for cognitive training, voice work and footwork for balance and agility. Most of all, we have FUN!!
This class is best for individuals that are able to work and move independently. If assistance is needed the instructor will provide a gait belt and you will provide the person to assist you.
