GEM Certification provides an overview of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.
It also covers a variety of beginning exercises designed to combat the most common symptoms of PD. The course includes classroom instruction, hands-on training and a workout in the gym with actual GEM class members.
This experience in the gym allows the individual to see how our coaches interact with each class – treating them as athletes, instead of the patient atmosphere that many of them are accustomed to. It also provides examples of how to conduct a class and what modifications to use for all ability levels.
This exercise program can be utilized as an addition to any gym, CrossFit community, Senior Care Facility or Health club. It is also a great class for Senior citizens – with or without movement disorder symptoms and is a great social outlet for many individuals who have previously not been involved in group activities.
