YMCA Partnership

The YMCA of Metro Atlanta has teamed up with the Parkinson’s Foundation Georgia, formerly known as the PD Gladiators, to offer a package of PD-specific exercise classes and support that will help people with Parkinson’s design a personal exercise program that is effective, fun and sustainable. Group exercise formats that are offered with a YMCA membership and across the YMCA of Metro Atlanta branches include strength and movement classes, balance and stability classes, group cycling classes and boxing classes. Additionally, THE COACH APPROACH is an exercise adherence program which all new members are highly encouraged to participate in and is also included in a YMCA membership.
