Parkinson’s disease is a chronic and progressive neurological disorder currently affecting more than 1 million people in the US. Incidence increases with age, and men are typically more affected than women. However, 4% of people with Parkinson’s disease are diagnosed before the age of 50. The best option for making lasting, life changing improvements is EXERCISE. Research shows early intervention and high intensity training are the best approaches to helping one battle this disease.
