About This Activity

Description

Recent studies have shown a regular exercise program is beneficial to individuals with Parkinson's Disease. If you have Parkinson's Disease, you can now discover firsthand the positive effect that exercise has on minimizing and possibly delaying or even reversing the progression of symptoms. Delay the Disease, a Parkinson's specific community-based exercise program is now available at The Center in Iowa City.

Delay the Disease is an ongoing evidenced-based group exercise program designed to empower people with Parkinson's Disease by optimizing their physical function and maintaining or restoring independence. Individuals are welcome at any stage of mobility and all can derive benefit, but the impressive results come from those who begin exercise early in the diagnosis. In addition to the physical improvement, weekly camaraderie with like-minded people provides social reinforcement, optimism, hope, and encouragement to handle the daily challenges of Parkinson's Disease. Caregivers are welcome to participate, but are not required to attend the class.

Fee: $5/class or $50 for 12-class punch card; pay instructor at first class or as you go. Registration required
