Classes Specialized for those with Parkinson’s

Get the benefits of a personal trainer and the motivating effect of working with a small group in this on-going program.

“I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in March, 2015. I realized it would be a good idea to enroll in an exercise class to try to maintain my health….At my first follow up with my neurologist, I got the good news that I was doing very well, the best patient that she had.  There was no stiffness or rigidity, and my strength was good. I have continued…and still to this day, have maintained by flexibility and strength, with no deterioration for 4 years. I credit this to TRX, as I get only moderate other types of exercise; occasional walking and riding a stationary bike. At my twice weekly classes, I evaluate myself for wellness, and it gives me confidence and inspiration.” –Staying Active with Parkinson’s Participant

Pedaling For Parkinson’s™

Before you begin your RSB experience, we will have you evaluated by one of our Team. What happens in an RSB Evaluation?


  • What medications are you currently taking?
  • Do you have a caretaker?
  • Would your caretaker be willing to assist you in your RSB classes?
  • How long have you had Parkinsons?
  • Do you have any other medical conditions?


  • Gait evaluation looking for stride length, dragging of feet, and drop foot
  • Individual appropriate stability test
  • Unilateral ROM and strength test to determine affected side of body and severity
  • Speech test (observed throughout the evaluation)
