PD Warrior Exercise Program for Parkinson’s
Thursday, 21st March 2019

If you have Parkinson’s disease, you cannot afford to underestimate the benefits of exercise. Being sedentary is one of the fastest ways to increase your symptoms.  If you want to be the best you can be, now is the time to review your exercise program. Find out more about a dedicated exercise program called PD Warrior.

What is PD Warrior

PD Warrior is an intensive exercise-based program designed to drive neuroplastic change in people with Parkinson’s. PD Warrior is your support network, education channel, enabler, confidence giver and motivational coach. This rehab program will teach you how to move well, believe in yourself and live better with Parkinson’s. People who have completed the PD Warrior 10 Week Challenge report feeling more confident in their movements, are able to move more freely and are getting back into life.

PD Warrior uses a unique combination of physical and cognitive activities to drive your brain’s natural ability to re-wire itself. PD Warrior not only re-trains your brain, it also helps you to get

  • Physical and mental fitness
  • Control and the ability to manage your condition better
  • Confidence and self-belief that you can and should expect to improve on the program
  • Motivation to get started now and keep going
  • Inspiration every single day of your life!

PD Warrior gives you hope that there is a better life with Parkinson’s. PD Warrior aims to slow your Parkinson’s symptoms down so that you can live, move and feel better.

PD Warrior is a game changer because there has never been a program that has been so encompassing, and with the capacity to give you such great results. Your Parkinson’s journey is likely to be very different to the person next you, however PD Warrior is diverse enough to help everyone, and specific enough to grow with you as you progress.

Don’t be fooled though, PD Warrior is really hard work. PD Warrior will likely work you harder than you have worked in a long time, and you know what….you will be coming back for more because PD Warrior is incredible fun and connects you with like-minded people who want to fight the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

What if I am already exercising?

If you are already going to the gym, running or still playing tennis then congratulations. Keeping up good exercise behaviours is half the battle and most of what PD Warrior spends its time on educating you. What you are missing out on though by just doing those activities is the complexity, progression and intensity that are required to re-train your brain. Just like your muscles benefit from cross training activities, your brain benefits from being challenged and surprised. This doesn’t mean the exercise you are doing now is not important, it just means that a Warrior Instructor might be able to tweak your program to really help you get the most out of exercise.

I am too mild to need a rehab program?

PD Warrior has been developed for people who are still considered fairly ‘mild’. If you think are you too mild to need PD Warrior, then you are the perfect person that PD Warrior can help. It is never too late to start the program, but the sooner you get started the more likely you will be to keep moving better for longer.

I have had Parkinson’s disease for a while, can it still help me?

If you are a little further along in your journey, PD Warrior can still be of enormous benefit to you, you might just have to work a little longer, a little harder and perhaps get started on smaller goals. For people that have experienced falls or who describe episodes of freezing, your PD Warrior Instructor will still be able to apply the concepts of PD Warrior, modified specifically to give you the biggest success in your personalised program.
