Parkinson’s Fitness and Function

This is an opportunity for people newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) to join a group with the specific aim of keeping active.

 

Parkinson’s makes your movements slower and smaller. Day to day activities generally become harder. At diagnosis, there is evidence to suggest that most people walk 30% less each day than others of the same age.

 

There’s good evidence that Exercise Is Medicine for PD. Exercise can definitely keep you fit and functional for longer. Aerobic or strenuous exercise at 80% of your maximum is thought to be neuro-protective – this means that it may slow down the damage to dopamine producing cells in your brain.

 

Having PD can make you feel down, maybe apathetic and like you don’t want to exercise. A good reason to join this group is to meet others in the same boat who will help to keep you motivated when the going gets tough.

 

If you have not done much exercise recently … or if you have never been one to exercise, don’t worry. We will take it slowly and only get you to do what you can. Our motto is start out gently and build up slowly.

This is how the Parkinson’s functional fitness class works:

Please book an initial assessment with Ben Durham (Specialist Parkinson’s class instructor) or Physiotherapist Hayley Jarvill. The reason for the first meeting is to get to know you, to identify a few things you find hard that you’d like to be able to do better and to take some measurements of your general fitness, balance and movements to help to monitor your progress. This session will take about an hour and a half. You will need to wear loose, comfortable clothes, trainers and bring reading glasses.

 

About the exercise groups:

Both classes start with a warm-up and you then learn exercises specifically designed to help people with PD.
Online zoom classes are also an option for people who prefer to exercise from the comfort of their home.
Ben Durham (Specialist Personal trainer) runs the group class sessions.

 

We offer re-measurement sessions every 3-6 months so that you can check how you are getting on compared to how you were when you started in the group. Book your re-measurement session with Ben.

Monday 5.00-6.00pm & Thursday’s 11:30-12:30 at Bury Physio

 

The cost:
The cost is £10 a session, pay as you go, or £40 a month for 4 classes and membership of the Bury Physio gym.

The advantage of joining the gym, is that you use the gym to do your exercises between sessions. If this cost is prohibitive for you please contact Kecia Harris of Parkinson’s UK who may be able to help.
