    People with these conditions are so inspirational, and continue to improve; I am amazed and get high on their progress!

    Great group, and kudos to Ms. Shury. I work with the chronically ill at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, and have seen tremendous progress through exercise. I find resistance bands to be very effective with PD patients.

    I would, however, be very careful having older participant raising both weights above the head at once. Research indicates that there is a risk of fainting or even stroke with this type of exercise.

    I recommend lifting one weight at a time and alternating repetitions.

    Stay strong,
