Pedaling for Parkinson's at the Y
GREATER SCRANTON YMCA
How It Works
Pedaling For Parkinson’s is an aerobic exercise program for adults with Parkinson’s disease. Research has shown a 35% reduction in symptoms by the simple act of pedaling a bicycle at a rapid pace – optimally, 80-90 revolutions per minute. This group-based indoor cycling class is coached by a certified Parkinson’s Cycle Coach and may help in symptom management of the disease.
