About Parkinson.FIT

Parkinson FIT is a community focused on promoting the importance of physical exercise and active lifestyles for people with Parkinson's Disease. We strive to educate and inspire people with PD, their friends, families, and health/fitness professionals, with the goal of improving the quality of life for people with PD.

We believe that one of best ways to educate, inspire and challenge the global PD fitness community is to encourage the sharing of information and promoting dialog within the community.

Our website is a global effort, but we believe that local community exercise programs are the best way to encourage and inspire people with PD to commit to an active lifestyle that improves their quality of life. We are working with regional affiliates and partners to support fund raising programs to provide improved availability and quality of Parinson's Disease exercise programs in their local area.
