Studies show that cycling can help control and reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. This class format and content was developed by Dr. Jay Alberts, a neuroscientist and researcher at the Cleveland Clinic, and Cathy Frazier, a person with Parkinson’s. Combined research and experience showed that symptoms improved significantly – as much as 35% – from pedaling at high RPMs for long periods.
Toward that goal, Pedaling for Parkinson’s participants ride up to three days a week on stationary bikes in the Cycle Burn studio at the Apex Center, 13150 W. 72nd Ave., Arvada. The one-hour format, adjusted to each person’s fitness level, consists of a 10-minute warmup at 60 RPMs, a 40-minute ride at 80 RPMs, and a 10-minute cool down at 60 RPMs. This ongoing activity is led by qualified Parkinson’s students for maximum effectiveness, fun and camaraderie.
