Supported workouts can help you stay safe and feel confident. Try chair-based exercise or exercise standing up while holding on to something sturdy.
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.

My husband and Parkinson's: Francesca's story
"Shortly before John's 80th birthday, I decided to check with England Golf whether people with disabilities could be helped to adapt their technique enough to still play the game. I wish I’d made that call sooner."
Francesca’s husband, John, was an avid golfer who adapted his golf as a result of Parkinson’s. After a nasty injury on the course, it was through John’s recovery that they both saw golf is about someone’s ability, not their disability.
Our exercise guidance is supported by the We Are Undefeatable campaign. The campaign aims to support people living with health conditions to build physical activity into their lives and to celebrate every victory - big or small.
