Exercise with mild symptoms

If your symptoms are mild, focus on vigorous exercise. This means wearing sports kit and getting hot and sweaty.

Try gym sessions, running, cycling, tennis, high energy Parkinson's programmes, circuit training or boot camp classes.

Talk to a physiotherapist who knows about Parkinson’s for more advice and to plan the right exercise for you, especially if you're just getting started.

Many of our local groups across the UK offer exercise classes specifically designed for people with Parkinson’s, at all stages of the condition.
