The Brian Grant Foundation (BGF) launches the Parkinson’s Exercise Class Finder, an online tool designed to help people living with Parkinson’s disease search for exercise classes in their areas to help them achieve their fitness goals.
Via the Exercise Class Finder, users can plug in their location and search for Parkinson’s-specific classes within a 10- to 250-mile radius. They can filter their search by class format, such as private instruction, group classes or online-only classes. They can also filter their search by exercise type. Options include aerobics, boxing, cycling, dance, high-intensity interval training, yoga, weightlifting and more.
“Research has found that exercising on a consistent basis is one of the best tools that people with Parkinson’s can use to manage symptoms of their disease. But it’s not always easy to find fitness classes that cater to people with PD,” says Katrina Kahl, executive director of the Brian Grant Foundation, in a media release.
“Not only will the Exercise Class Finder motivate people to find fitness classes, it allows them to connect with others living with Parkinson’s in their community.”
BGF invites fitness professionals around the globe who host exercise classes for people with Parkinson’s to submit their class information so it can be added to the online exercise class finder. To register your Parkinson’s-friendly class, visit Brian Grant Foundation.
