PD Warrior – Exercise Philosphy for Early Onset Parkinson’s
What is PD Warrior?
PD Warrior is an intensive exercise-based program designed to drive neuroplastic change in people with Parkinson’s. It is in stark contrast to the compensatory movement and queuing strategies employed in current clinical practice. PD Warrior approach is designed to help people live with Parkinson’s better by improving the way they move – either by increasing their effort, amplitude, dual tasking or a combination of all three.
A recent survey carried out by PD Warriors showed that 94% of people continued exercising after the PD Warrior 10 Week Challenge had been completed and 98% of people thought that the program was worth their time. PD Warrior is a game changer

Early Intervention is Key
PD Warrior is an early intervention strategy and aimed at those who with a recent diagnosis or soon after. These are the people that will get the most out of the program. People who are more significantly impaired, falling and freezing daily will still benefit from the program but will require an intensive programme and have to work a lot harder, for a longer for smaller gains.
