Impact PD is more than our team name. It is also a Parkinson's specific fitness class started by Nancy Nelson that combines the concepts of two researched based, nationally known, fitness programs, Rock Steady Boxing(RSB) and Parkinson's Wellness Recovery (PWR). Both are
tailored to the needs of individuals living with Parkinson's disease. Nancy has over thirty years of experience as an exercise instructor, the last fifteen of which have focused almost exclusively with Parkinson's disease. She is trained and certified as an ACE Personal Trainer, Rock Steady Boxing instructor, Parkinson's Wellness Recovery instructor and Group Exercise instructor. Additionally she is trained in Tai Ji Quan Moving for Better Balance and is a Parkinson's Exercise Specialist. Nancy has also conducted research projects in collaboration with OHSU and the Oregon Research Institute on patients with Parkinson's disease and cancer. All of us that participate in Impact PD classes have benefitted from Nancy's experience and expertise. PRO supports Impact PD and we support PRO! Go to Sole Support Parkinson's and join our team.
