Parkinson's and Exercise - 1 day workshop for Allied Health and Fitness Professionals - Rotorua - Sunday January 13, 2019
It was a great honour and pleasure to represent Counterpunch Parkinson's at Fitex 2018 with three presentations from our head coaching Team. Coach Lisa spoke about "Your Brain on Exercise" and "Disordered Brains and Exercise: Welcoming people with motor-disorders into mainstream fitness settings. Coach Alexander spoke about "Being a Personal Trainer Physios Trust and Refer To". Please find PDF's of our slides here, and please comment here or contact us with any questions that you have.
"I'm that person who happens to have Parkinson's, whereas at the beginning it was overwhelming and a daunting concept." The number of Kiwis living with Parkinson's is expected to double in the next 25 years. But for most of us, our knowledge begins and ends with Michael J Fox.
