Wellness & Fitness


Our one-on-one Wellness & Fitness program is designed for individuals who are generally well or have recently graduated from a physical therapy program.  Private Wellness & Fitness is for you if you desire expert guidance to help keep you on track, motivated, and inspired to get the most out of your workouts and enhance your overall health.  We will help you to make sure you are exercising the right way, at the right time, with the correct intensity.  These strategies are the best way to maximally protect your brain, keep your Parkinson's symptoms under control, and nurture your well-being.  


In the convenience of your own home, place of work, gym, or even your favorite park, we will meet 1-2 times per week depending on your current fitness level and wellness/fitness goals.  During your 1-hour session we will work on cardiovascular training, Parkinson's specific exercises, and developing a personalized plan to help you maximize your mobility, sleep, stress, nutrition, and happiness.
