Overview

The OhioHealth Delay the Disease™ (DTD) is a unique, community-based PD exercise program that consists of group classes that include brief episodes of high-intensity aerobic work followed by PD-specific task training. Core stability, eccentric strength training, dual-task training, large-amplitude walking, rotational movements, integrated cognitive challenges, fine motor drills, and balance training are incorporated at a challenging level of difficulty for all functional abilities. The program is a structured class of aerobic training followed by task-specific training within a community-based PD-specific group exercise format. Delay the Disease is an evidence-based fitness program, led by a certified Delay the Disease instructor, designed to empower people with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders.

Delay the Disease is supported by a community grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation.
