Moving Together for Stronger Bodies & Minds

Doctors encourage exercise as one of the most important things you can do to rally against the effects of Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders.

Movement is not only critical for maintaining general health, but is also one of the best defenses available in slowing the progression of PD, preserving a better quality of life for longer. Improving flexibility, building strength, and agility training all help with motor control longevity, in addition to supporting the creation of new neural connections that can slow the progression of the disease.

Our workout programs are specifically designed for clients with PD, with the following areas of focus found in each and every class:


Improving Balance

By incorporating activities targeting gait, coordination, functional exercise, and muscle strengthening, our goal is to improve balance, resulting in decreased fall risk.


Cardio Conditioning

Particularly for seniors, cardio activity is key in strengthening hearts & lungs, increasing energy levels, and managing weight.


Building Confidence

Conquering goals can increase your self-esteem. Research also suggests that moderate exercise can help to alleviate depression in the elder population even better than antidepressant medications.


Mental Agility

Studies show that exercise can also combat the mental decline associated with aging and dementia. Our workouts are designed to stimulate the brain as well as the body.


Increasing Flexibility

As we age our range of motion declines, and this decrease compounds with the rigid effects of Parkinson’s. Flexibility training allows more freedom of movement, enabling our clients to do the things they love for longer, as well as just feel better overall in their day-to-day lives.


Friendship & Fun

By working out with others experiencing PD, our clients—whom span a range of ages, fitness levels & backgrounds—find a sense of camaraderie, friendship, and community. They push & motivate each other to keep going—and have fun together while they’re at it.

Our Services

We are always evolving as we learn more about our community's needs. Check out our current initiatives that further our mission below.

Community-Based Fitness Classes

We are partnered with Wells Branch MUD Recreation Center to host STP-designed and led classes for their members with (or without!) PD at a high-intensity level. Individuals may gain access to these free classes, along with other fitness amenities, by signing up for a Wells Branch MUD membership. Learn more >

Retirement Community Partnerships

We host our classes onsite at partnered retirement communities, to ensure mobility & transportation issues do not stand in the way of reaching those who would benefit from our programs. For every retirement community that brings our classes to their residents, we donate our services to a low-income community. Learn more >

Financial Support for Low-Income Residents

In 2023, we paid out more than $22,000 in scholarships to provide gym memberships for those in need of financial assistance in order to afford access to our classes. We are currently paused on accepting new scholarship applicants, but please stay tuned for updates as we continue to work on expanding our services.

"Data from the Parkinson’s Foundation Parkinson’s Outcomes Project, the largest-ever clinical study of Parkinson’s, suggest that people with PD do at least 2.5 hours of exercise every week for a better quality of life." — Parkinson.org
