Fitness Center Cardio Equipment
Thinking of exercising at your community fitness center but not sure where to start? If you’re new to this kind of exercise, watch our video tour of some of the most common types of cardio machines. The trainers on staff should be able to help you find the best machine to meet your needs and make sure that it’s adjusted properly to fit you. Don’t forget to ask if anyone on staff has familiarity with Parkinson’s disease or other movement disorders. Even if they don’t, they might be able to refer you to a trainer or physical therapist in your area who can help design a program that’s perfect for you.
