The Brian Grant Foundation provides inspirational and empowering exercise programs for those impacted by Parkinson’s disease. Our programs and classes are based on the latest exercise research, which is showing that exercise early on in a Parkinson’s diagnosis can be beneficial in preserving or improving physical performance.
Be sure to talk to your doctor before starting an exercise program to help you stay safe and meet your goals. Then get started on your journey to wellness by watching our exercise videos.
