Pedaling for Parkinson’s is a research-based, exercise program for those with muscular degeneration challenges including Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, stroke recovery, and muscle injury. Progressive, cycling classes decrease neuromotor symptoms and increase quality of life in those experiencing neuromuscular difficulties.

Participants wear a chest strap heart rate monitor, provided at no cost, and can track their progress in real time on a de-identified display. Come use our brand new Keiser spin bikes to reduce your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

The class is free for all in the community for the first 12 weeks. Y members are always free. After 12 weeks a punch card may be purchased by potential members. Classes are held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 11:30AM to 12:30PM. Participants may join the class at any time. A caregiver is encouraged to attend the class with the participant and may pedal as well or may stand next to the participant’s bike for encouragement or assistance. Participants should be able to walk and stand unassisted.

Parkinson’s disease is caused by a breakdown in the nerve cells in the brain. The affected nerve cells do not produce enough dopamine, which affects your ability to move the way you want. Tremors, stiff muscles, slow movement, and trouble with balance or walking are all symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. In time, Parkinson’s affects muscles throughout the body, leading to difficulty with swallowing, digestion, facial movements and more.

Those unable to start on an upright bike may condition on a recumbent bike.

The mission of Pedaling for Parkinson’s is:

● To improve the quality of life of Parkinson’s disease patients and their caregivers

● To educate patients, caregivers, and the general public about the benefits of maintaining an active lifestyle after a Parkinson’s diagnosis.

● To support research dedicated to the prevention and treatment of Parkinson’s disease

Call the Uniontown Area YMCA at 724.438.2584 for more information or stop at the welcome desk to register. Medical Consent is required to participate.

This programming is made possible by generous, annual sponsorship from Uniontown Hospital.
