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 divided into the following areas:

  • Forums - Public discussion forums for keeping up with topics of interest within the global Parkinson's community.
  • Community - Regional fitness classes (or other interests) can create their own online community groups to enable discussion and information sharing.
  • News - The latest news stories and research articles about Parkinson's Disease, with a particular focus on exercise and fitness.
  • Video - Launching Spring 2019, we'll be sharing a video series focused on Parkinson's exercise and fitness. Stay tuned!
  • Blog - The website started as a blog with information and commentary relevant to Parkinson's Disease fitness and exercise from our founder.

Our website may be 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 to support fund raising programs that may be necessary to provide improved availability of programs in their local area.
