About the Program
As a leading community-based network committed to improving the nation’s health, the YMCA of Central Ohio has partnered with OhioHealth to bring OhioHealth Delay the Disease, the number one Parkinson’s exercise program, to three branch locations.
This evidence-based fitness program, led by a certified OhioHealth Delay the Disease instructor, is designed to empower people with Parkinson’s disease. The class optimizes physical function while utilizing humor, optimism, enthusiasm and hope to help motivate participants.
After participating in the program, participants will have increased self-confidence, decreased risk of falls and minimized fatigue. The goal of the program is to give participants a happier lifestyle with reduced rigidity and improved mobility.
The program will be offered as a nine week session with a cost of $90 for members and $135 for non-members. For more information, contact the branch representative at your preferred location.
