Get Started is everything you need if you want to use exercise to take control of your Parkinson’s. It is an online workout plan which is prescribed by expert physiotherapists to gradually build in intensity and duration over 12 weeks to until you are able to exercise at the optimum dose.
You have the freedom to schedule your workouts at a time that suits you using your own personal dashboard within the Reach Your Peak Virtual Clinic which you can access via our app or on your desktop/laptop giving access to experts whenever you need it.
This 12 week course is made up of 12 pre-recorded Parkinson’s High Intensity Interval Training (PHIIT) routines which you can follow online, on-demand at a time that suits you.
You get a new PHIIT routine each week and we want you to repeat it five times per week. You also get a new stretch routine each week which you should complete twice a week.
Each new PHIIT routine builds in complexity, intensity and duration so by the end of the course you are able to exercise for 30 minutes, 5x a week at high intensity. This is the optimal dose to trigger all the neurophysiological responses you have learnt about in The Exercise Academy .
Get Started runs in our Virtual Clinic which you can access at anytime via your desktop/laptop computer or via our app.
Being a member of the Reach Your Peak virtual clinic not only means that you are guaranteed to be doing the right exercise for your Parkinson’s, you will also have access to Maria and Sally 7 days a week to answer any personal questions you have.

Whenever suits you! The workouts are uploaded every Monday so you wont have to wait long for the course to start.
