An Invite from Dr. Farley
Welcome to the PWR! Exercise Revolution!
Thank you so much for expressing an interest in our Virtual PWR! Experience and for taking the time to learn more about how you can get better and stay better with exercise!
As the founder of PWR! and a pioneer in PD-specific exercise and rehabilitation research and programming, I am delighted to welcome you to the same cutting edge-programming we implement in our PWR! Gym flagship facility in Tucson, AZ!
Our mission has always been to increase access for people with Parkinson disease to neuroplasticity-principled programming starting at diagnosis and continuing for life.
Since 2010, PWR! has grown from an organization of 3 staff in 1,000 sq. ft. to 25 staff in 16,000 sq. ft.! In 2011, we launched our annual PWR! Retreat, a week-long immersion into exercise for brain change essentials to empower persons with PD to get started, live well and take control of their own trajectory of living with PD. In 2012, we established our brick and mortar PWR! Gym to demonstrate the feasibility of implementing an integrated model of healthcare for persons with PD - one that begins at diagnosis with rehabilitation, and then cycles to PD-specific community exercise and wellness programs and back to rehabilitation, as a continuum of care for life. We have now trained and certified over 6000 therapists and fitness professionals worldwide to be PWR! PD-exercise specialists and encouraged them to join forces and form their own local continuum of care networks.
We couldn’t have achieved all this without our amazing PWR! Team composed of our volunteer board and executive, administrative, and educational staff, along with all of our PD-specialized therapists and fitness professionals. Helping individuals with PD is all we do! Every day!
Through our PWR! Virtual Experience, persons with PD everywhere are now able to benefit from the same empowering proactive exercise and wellness resources as our locals and guests experience at the PWR!Gym in Tucson, AZ.... all from your HOME!
You will have access to our expertise through self-assessment, guided plans that start with the PD-specific fundamentals, educational content, tips, Q&A with an expert, and a growing library of PD-specific pre-recorded and live exercise classes of varying types and intensity - both physical and cognitive! If that is not enough, we offer 1:1 wellness consultations (in-person or virtual) to personalize your PWR! Virtual Experience. Let us supplement your current therapy and exercise programming or be your “one stop - exercise for brain change - shop”.
We know that Parkinson’s research is ongoing and growing every day. We do the work of incorporating that research into exercise and wellness content so that you don’t have to. Together we can bring you hope and connection, and the ability to live your best life.
Dr. Becky Farley explains why you need the multi-level classes in a Parkinson's program and an assessment which is provided in the PWR! Virtual Experience. We want you to be successful!
