Many of us have learned there’s a direct relationship between our physical/emotional well-being and how much vigorous exercise we get. The less exercise each week the more symptoms appear. The more exercise you get the easier it is to move, think and battle this disease.
Consisting of 3, 30-minute periods of exercises targeted to improve function in 3 areas Amplitude & Cognitive, Cardio, and Strength. A set-your-own-goal endurance challenge, NOT a race or competition. You set your own work out routine throughout the year to push yourself on 1 day. Thus, improving your quality of life for the long term.
