Functional fitness refers to a type of exercise that aims to improve and enhance an individual's ability to perform everyday tasks and movements with efficiency, balance, and strength. In the context of Parkinson's disease and brain injury recovery, functional fitness exercises can play a crucial role in helping patients regain control over their bodies and improve their overall quality of life.


Below is a breakdown of the key areas we are focusing on for individuals with Parkinson's and brain injuries:

  • Improved Motor Skills: Functional fitness exercises focus on enhancing coordination, balance, flexibility, and strength. By targeting these areas, we can help individuals regain and improve their motor skills, allowing them to perform daily activities with greater ease and confidence.

  • Enhanced Cognitive Function: Engaging in functional fitness activities stimulates the brain and promotes neuroplasticity. Regular exercise has been shown to improve cognitive function, memory, attention, and problem-solving abilities. This can be particularly valuable for brain injury recovery patients who may be experiencing cognitive challenges.

  • Increased Independence: Functional fitness training aims to improve functional movement patterns, allowing individuals to regain their independence and perform daily tasks more efficiently. Through targeted exercises, we focus on building strength and mobility in specific areas affected by Parkinson's or brain injury, empowering patients to regain control over their bodies.

  • Mood Enhancement and Social Support: Participating in functional fitness classes fosters a sense of community and camaraderie among individuals with similar conditions. This social support network can have a positive impact on mental health and overall well-being. Moreover, physical exercise has been shown to release endorphins, promoting a sense of happiness and reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety.

  • Long-term Health and Well-being: Regular functional fitness training not only provides immediate benefits but also contributes to long-term health and well-being. By improving cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility, individuals with Parkinson's and brain injuries can reduce the risk of secondary health issues, maintain independence, and enhance their overall quality of life.

We are committed to providing safe and effective functional fitness classes specifically designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with Parkinson's and brain injuries. Each class is tailored to the participants' abilities, ensuring a supportive and inclusive environment.
