Riding an indoor, stationary bicycle has been shown to reduce Parkinson's motor symptoms by as much as 35%. And it's something almost anyone with Parkinson's can do.
Participants ride for 1 hour - a 10 minute warm up at 60 RPM, followed by 40 minutes at 80 to 90 RPM, and a 10 minute cool down, with resistance.
Available online and live, in-person at more than 150 facilities across the country. Join a Pedaling For Parkinson's indoor cycling group and Exercise Your Brain !

Mon, Wed and Fri, 11:30AM to 12:30PM CENTRAL TIME
Tue, Thu and Sat, 8:00AM to 10:00AM CENTRAL TIME.
