Fitness is a Parky’s most effective weapon to combat Parkinson’s.

I’m a believer in doing a variety of activities. To read a little about the activities that I do throughout the week click here.

Working on fluid movement

Parkinson’s causes me to quite literally forget how to move. I’ve started working with Darbe Schlosser of the Motorvation Foundation to use audio and other cues to move more naturally. I’ve started incorporating these practices in the form of boxing movements into my workouts between sets I’ve already noticed improvement in my gait and movements generally.

BJJ No Gi at Arte Suave – Today I had fun picking on the college kids a little bit. The thing I love about No Gi is that you don’t have to worry about collar chokes!

So I’ve realized that’s it’s a bit boring to just list my workout for the day. SO I didn’t really even bother putting my workout in lately because….well that gets old fast. Instead, maybe I’ll talk a bit about what sorts of exercise related activities I’m looking forward to trying in the near future. I talked to a friend a bit today about putting together a mountain biking trip to Bryce Resort this summer. TOTALLY STOKED!!
