This program, which is being offered in partnership with Supportive Living, Inc., is specially designed for adults with brain injury and those with age-related neurologic disorders such as Parkinson’s or early dementia.
Classes include one-on-one exercise coaching with a student intern practicing social distancing and appropriate PPE, supervised by a Certified Group Fitness Instructor (CGFI) and Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS). This program will be held in the Active Living Center, which is a dedicated area of the Y separate from other fitness areas. The number of participants will be limited.
Cardio workouts and strength building exercises benefit brain injury survivors in many ways – even beyond the positive effects of increased motion, strength, and stamina. A stronger body leads to additional cognitive benefits including boosted confidence, improved self-efficacy, and an increased sense of accomplishment. Participants don’t just exercise, they socialize too.
