At Club Fit Briarcliff, our goal is to help improve the health and well-being of our members. We are fortunate to have a cycling instructor that is educated and certified to instruct cycling for people with Parkinson’s.
Research has shown that pedaling a bicycle may change the life of someone with Parkinson’s disease. Studies conducted at the Cleveland Clinic showed a 35% reduction in symptoms by the simple act of pedaling a bicycle at a challenging pace.
Pedaling is not a cure for Parkinson’s disease , but there is compelling evidence that it can make a real difference for many who try it.
