But this is more than certification.
After losing his father to Parkinson's, Zach has been determined to help as many people as he can fight PD with exercise and knowledge.
Through years of experience and success working with people with Parkinson's, Zach has designed this program of online workouts to help you take on Parkinson's through exercise.
This isn't just an exercise program.
This is a fight against Parkinson's and
a fight for your life.
Starting a fitness program is difficult.
Zach will help you make fitness a part of your lifestyle.
If you make the investment and commit to the program it will pay you back in LIFE.
Let's get moving.
You will be amazed at what you can do and how good you can feel,
My Dad was a big, funny, quick witted guy who never met a stranger. But I watched PD slowly steal his life away over six years. He became quiet, withdrawn and scared.
His doctors did not understand the extraordinary value of exercise in combating PD. They just thought that his terrible decay is just how Parkinson's works.
No Cure. No hope. Absolutely WRONG.
Even at his care facility, they they sat him down and he never got up again. He never got a fighting chance. Ignorance and fear killed my Dad well before Parkinson's did.
It does not have to be this way for you.
I became a Rock Steady Boxing coach and started The Parkinson's Gym to keep what happened to my Dad from happening to anyone else ever again.
Everyday, I see the struggles of Parkinson's. Some days are good. Some days are not.
But every day is better when you have done your best to put up a good fight.
Trust me - Get in the fight. You will not regret it.
