Combining our Get Started online programme with a weekly community class.
GS Local combines the convenience of our 10 week Get Started Online programme with a weekly in-person class at a local leisure centre.
We are able to deliver this service for free thanks to generous funding from Parkinson’s UK.
The North Wales group will run in Colwyn Bay Leisure Centre, the South Wales group will run in Llanrumney Leisure Centre.
You will sign up to an exercise programme which consists of 10 workouts that gradually increase in intensity and duration over 10 weeks until you are able to work at the recommended dose of Parkinson’s specific exercise.
Your workout videos are available in our online gym and we want you to complete the workout five times each week. One of your weekly workouts will be delivered ‘in-person’ at either Eastern Leisure Centre, Llanrumney (Thursday 11am-12pm) or Colwyn Bay Leisure Centre (Fridays 11am-12pm).
The next group will start on April 11th in Llanrumney and 12th April in Colwyn Bay.
Anyone with a diagnosis of idiopathic Parkinson’s or Young Onset Parkinson’s can take part.
You need to be able to attend a weekly exercise class at either Colwyn Bay Leisure Centre (Friday 11am) or Eastern Leisure Centre, Llanrumney (Thursday 11am).
The exercises are appropriate for a range of abilities, chair based and standing variations are given for all exercises but you need to be able to work towards exercising at a moderate to vigorous intensity.
