Delay the Disease is an evidence-based exercise program that is proven to fight the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. The program is supported by the Parkinson’s Foundation of Northwest Ohio.
The goal of the program is for participants to develop exercise routines that are best suited to their individual needs. The program empowers those with Parkinson’s Disease to optimize physical functions. The program is meant to show participants that the disease does not define who they are. The belief in hope and inspiration is at the core of this program’s mission.
The founders of Delay the Disease, David Zid and Jackie Russell, are passionate about helping those with Parkinson’s Disease. Zid, a professional fitness instructor since 1997, developed a special interest in those with Parkinson’s Disease while coaching those with the disease at his personal training company. Russell, a registered nurse, was personally touched by Parkinson’s Disease when her mother-in-law battled the disease. Zid and Russell are passionate about the fact that Parkinson’s Disease can be manageable with daily exercise.
The cost of the programs is $30 each for a 10-week class.
The Wednesday program will be taught by certified instructor Janel Sweitzer. The Thursday program will be taught by certified instructor Shannyn Miller, RN, NREMT-P.
