NEW CYCLING PROGRAM - PEDALING FOR PARKINSON'S - Lynch/van Otterloo Y
NEW CYCLING PROGRAM FOR PEOPLE WITH PARKINSON'S.
Research conducted at the Cleveland Clinic showed a 35% reduction in PD symptoms by the simple act of pedaling a bicycle at a rapid pace, optimally 80-90 revolutions per minute. This research inspired the launching of Pedaling for Parkinson’s™ (PFP), an indoor cycling program geared specifically towards individuals with Parkinson’s disease.
Participants will ride on a stationary bike. Each one hour exercise session consists of a 10 minute warm-up, up to a 40 minute main exercise set, and a 10 minute cool-down. Rest breaks will be taken as needed. Participants will ride within their pre-determined heart rate zones and will be closely monitored by program facilitators.
Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:45 - 11:45am
Class Limit: 8 people
