"I've noticed that one of the biggest obstacles preventing us from making fitness a priority in our lives is the feelings and fears the words "workout" or "exercise" conjure from commercials, billboards and infomercials," LoSasso says.

"These words often induce images of that poor miserable individual drenched in sweat, running on the treadmill, laboring on a bike, or lifting heavy weights for hours on end. The truth is, high intensity exercise is great but the other and more important truth is that even the brief 5-15 minute session of easy, controlled, "therapeutic movement" can bring about significant improvements in your health and function, "LoSasso adds.

Patrick LoSasso discusses more of the specific benefits from appropriate movement, and announces his participation in a coming event:

"On April 12th at our Parkinson's Association Step by Step Walk/Run I will present a series of simple, easy to perform movements designed to get you started. For those of you are currently exercising, great! I know you will find these strategies useful,", according to LoSasso.
