Exercise & Therapy

Coping with Parkinson’s Disease can have it set of challenges. There is growing evidence that exercise can help keep Parkinson’s symptoms at bay. Exercise also can help you feel better mentally and emotionally. If motivation is a problem, joining a class can help you stay on track and become connected within the Parkinson’s Disease Community within Arizona.

Most of the exercise classes listed charge a monthly fee to participants. Fees vary, but the average cost is $50 per month to attend class twice a week. Check the calendar for classes and be sure to Get Up and Get Fit!
