I’d like to know a little bit more about each instructor. I’d like to know their qualifications and experience. I find some to do just a great job and others not so much. Can you post that?
I feel that all of our instructors are quite knowledgable in PD exercise and I am listing their experience below. It sounds like you may not feel the same way and that criticism strikes a personal note with me. I work side by side with most of these instructors every day in our Seattle clinics where our main job is treating people with PD. We are truly a team and I see the passion and energy they put into their work. I vouch for all of our expertise. Getting in front of a camera is not easy and sometimes the workouts don't turn out as well as we would like, but we are all trying our best to give you and everyone else using Daily Dose some help with exercise. If you'd like, I'd be more than happy to talk more about all of our qualifications with you further. My number is 304-506-3876.

I want to THANK YOU for making these classes available online! Covid-19 was keeping my father from being able to exercise at his local PT in NY state and I was concerned that he seemed to be losing his strength rather quickly. I discovered your website exploring the Parkinson's Association website in Colorado, signed my father up for an account, and sent the link to my parents caregiver to help them to be able to workout at home. They enjoy the chair classes and partake at least 3 x's/week!
Thank you so much for the kind words. I'm really happy to hear the classes help your parents! You are using Daily Dose PD exactly as it was intended. I'm so happy they get value out of it and we will keep the ChairFit classes going every week! If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to reach out.
Thank you for making my day heading into the weekend:)
