PWR! Surge or Antifreeze Intensives - 1 on 1 focus
A Surge is a 3,4, or 5 day intensive at the PWR!Gym
Anti-Freeze is a 5 day intensive specifically focused on the symptom of freezing
The PWR!Surge is a one-of-a-kind 3-5 day-long exercise intensive program where individuals with Parkinson disease can come to the PWR!Gym in Tucson to participate. It is a fantastic way to begin building a research-based exercise program that is not only specific to Parkinson’s, but specific to the individual’s needs and goals. Individuals will be working with our expert physical therapists who work exclusively with people with Parkinson’s every day, which provides them with extensive knowledge about current Parkinson-specific therapies and research.

We offer those locally to the Tucson community and are working on uploading them to our Youtube page as we can.
