Formerly Delay the Disease ™, Better Every Day (BED) is a fitness program that uniquely addresses Parkinson’s disease. BED offers the opportunity for each person to be challenged, with three skill levels designed to assist clients appropriate to their stage of disease.
BED classes help clients to more effectively perform daily tasks, build strength and confidence, and better maintain their independence by optimizing physical function and helping to delay the progression of symptoms associated with PD.
The BED fitness program can help you:
- Move about with ease and confidence in a crowd
- Get out of bed or rise from a chair independently
- Improve handwriting
- Dress independently
- Diminish your worry that stiffness, slow steps and other symptoms are obvious
- Regain a sense of moving with normality
Our community workout setting is both welcoming and supportive. Classes focus on movement, function, mobility, balance, endurance, strength, challenges and fun. Carepartners are invited and encouraged to participate!
Certified instructor Ben Rossi has been leading classes for over five years in various community locations. He is joined by a dynamic team of certified instructors.

Mild intensity. Exercises require more effort than in L1, with minimal floor work. The focus is on movement, balance, rotational mobility, light strength, cognition, and breathing.
