Fighting Fit is the brainchild of a small group of passionate working-age people living with Parkinson’s and one partner who are supported by healthcare professionals, neuro-physiotherapists and experts in related fields.
The organisation was established in 2018 specifically to support younger and working-age people with Parkinson’s by providing a weekend residential programme of exercise, information and friendship.
Through a carefully balanced blend of exercise, information sharing, skills development and discussion, the programme will help you develop a personal plan to make changes to your everyday life in order to live well with the condition.
The programme is facilitated by active people living with Parkinson’s and delivered by a range of multi-disciplinary experts. It runs from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon in the Holiday Inn hotel at Western Turville near Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire.
Over two full days the programme combines rest and relaxation with a variety of exercise and other stimulating activities and discussions.
There are currently spaces available to book on the July and October 2019 edition of the programme so if you are interested in learning more about Fighting Fit or attending the programme, please visit their website here - https://fighting-fit.org.uk/programme/.
