Delay the Disease


The Bear Levin Studer Family YMCA is proud to now offer Delay the Disease. Developed by OhioHealth, this nationwide fitness program is designed to empower people with Parkinson's Disease to take control of the disease with daily exercise.

The empowering results of our Delay the Disease exercise program can help participants:

  • Move about with ease and confidence in a crowd
  • Get out of bed or rise from a chair independently
  • Improve handwriting
  • Dress independently
  • Dimish worry that stiffness, slow steps and other symptoms are obvious
  • Regain a sense of moving with normality



The specifics of our program at the Y are listed below:

  • 12 Week Program
  • Meets Tuesday and Thursday in the Greenhut Room from 1:30 - 2:30PM
  • $90 for Y Members and $120 for Program Members
