Description

Learn how to safely and effectively train people with Parkinson's - and earn continuing education credit!

Brought to you by the Parkinson's Foundation.

Based on research from Oregon Health & Science University our training covers the basics of Parkinson’s, safety considerations for exercise instructors and research on the most effective types of activities for people with the disease. Then we’ll hit the gym to teach you how to develop a fun, group exercise class that incorporates a variety of activities that target the mobility problems that occur in Parkinson's.

The fundamentals of this training can be applied to just about any type of exercise program. Whether you’re a group fitness instructor or personal trainer, this training can help you work more effectively with people with Parkinson’s. You’ll also receive a certificate of completion for participating in the training that you can use for continuing education credit.

Thanks to support from the Parkinson's Foundation, this training is free for attendees. We’ll help promote your new skills too!

Please note that this training is for fitness professionals and physical therapists that would like to learn more about safe and effective activities for people with Parkinson's.
