“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
