November 20 | Seated Cardio
Add some punch to your workouts this week with this FIRED UP Performance Pack:
- Fit time totaling: 40 minutes
- This series starts with whole body strengthening with cues for large amplitude movement in all directions. This strength will carry you into a coordination series to improve the brain to body connection. Finally, your challenge is to add the cognitive element to your exercise by taking your strength , large amplitude movement and coordination and applying it to guided dance moves through the decades.
We ask that you consult your care team about concerns and recommendations before trying new exercises. The Parkinson’s Foundation is in no way liable or responsible for injuries sustained from online classes.
