OFFERING GROUP, PARTNER & INdividual FItness/Wellness PRograms
Dynamic NeuroFit offers evidence-based fitness programs on the cutting edge of neuroscience. These programs are ideal to all members of the community, especially those with a neurological diagnosis or graduates of our therapy programs. Unlike physical therapy, fitness and wellness classes are not covered by insurance. However, if your instructor determines that you would benefit from skilled therapy, we will coordinate services with you and your physician as appropriate. To learn more about the role of wellness and fitness within the scope of physical, occupational, or speech therapy, click here. These classes are encouraged for:
Members of the community with a neurological diagnosis
Graduates of our physical, occupational, or speech therapy programs
Adults wishing to improve general health & well-being through exercise
People seeking medically-supervised exercise programs
Dynamic NeuroFit group programs differ from classes offered by personal trainers or fitness instructors because our programs are lead and designed by medical professionals. These programs are held at our NeuroFit clinic and offer the opportunity to socialize, get out of the house, have access to more fitness equipment, and to be inspired by others. Many spouses and caregivers also find that group classes are a meaningful way to find support and friendship in the community. Click here to see our group class schedule.
These individual programs, designed and lead by medical professionals, can be performed either in the NeuroFit clinic, or in the privacy of your own home. Unlike group classes, these private classes are more personally tailored to the individual’s goals. Click here to inquire about private class pricing.
Rock Steady Boxing
The value of high-effort high-amplitude exercise has been corroborated in several studies to improve symptoms in people with Parkinson’s disease and similar neurological conditions. Many such studies suggest that continuous, intensive training offers neuro-protection, which can delay or reverse the progression of Parkinson’s disease, promoting neuro-restoration and improved quality of life.
Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) has worked closely with researchers to promote the boxing and rigorous exercise to improve mobility in people with Parkinson’s Disease. RSB is a fun way to stay fit, protect the brain, and meet new people. To learn more about RSB, click here.
Our NeuroFit programs are designed by fitness experts using the latest in scientific research on neuroprotection, balance, and aging. These classes include:
Tai Chi for Rehab level 1
Loud Crowd (see below)
Rock Steady Boxing (see above)
Brain Balance (with PT approval)
