Parkinson's Exercise Group

A few weeks ago, Mom and I gave a talk, at the Parkinsons Group serving Uxbridge and Port Perry. We had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people and would like to extend our thanks.


We now aim to start a group program at our facility once a week. If you or someone you know may be interested, please get in touch with us.

We also do individual personal training with those suffering from Parkinson's.

What do we assess?

1. Fitness level. 2. Functional strength. 3. Balance. 4. Mobility. 5. Overall lifestyle habits.

I've met those with Parkinson's who are very active. Exercise is designed as a way to help maintain quality of life. We must maintain safety while exercising, so having a personal trainer is beneficial for this reason. It also allows us to assess your overall fitness level. It's much more individual and specific to your needs.

Functional strength is defined as movements you complete in everyday life. For example: navigating stairs or bending down to pick up the recycling. These are typical examples of everyday activities which may be difficult for you. We must look at where you struggle and create a program designed to help you improve.

Balance and mobility are described as being able to navigate uneven terrain safely. We assess your ability to bear weight on one leg. This goes hand in hand with core strength development. Improved core strength means improved balance, mobility, and functional strength.

Our goal is to get you moving in a safe environment. We must assess your overall strength and functionality to build an exercise program successfully.

All Fit All Ages Gym is located at the Food Basics plaza, beside Coldwell Banker. Call 289-356-2140 for more information on our Parkinson's Program.
