JeffFit Parkinson’s Disease Exercise Program

Strong And Steady

Don’t let Parkinson’s disease stop you from being “Strong and Steady.” Regular exercise can slow the progression of Parkinson’s disease and improve your overall level of fitness and well-being.

Join Jefferson Rehabilitation's physical therapists in weekly exercise sessions and participate in seated aerobic exercises as well as balance and strengthening activities in a supportive, group setting. Participants must be independently mobile or have an assistant (family member or caregiver) throughout the session.

Classes run in 8-week sessions throughout the year, though interested participants can join a session in-progress at any time.

Physician approval is required. Complimentary valet parking is available for all participants.

COST:  $40 for eight sessions. Participants who join mid-session receive credits toward future sessions.
