There is nothing like hearing people’s experience directly from them! If you would like to talk to one of my clients let me know and I can put you in touch!
"Through Claire's consistent, intense, mindful exercise regimens, I have regained much of my life back after 9 years with PD. As I become more capable physically, my life is less defined by my physical limitations and I have more confidence to try new things. Thanks to Claire, my life at 70 is expanding instead of contracting; I take train trips to Los Angeles and navigate public transportation with ease, I am in two book clubs, and I can do all my own gardening again. I can even jump rope again (my jump rope video demonstrates how much Claire has helped me). Exercising with Claire 6 times a week is my preferred medication!"

Claire has truly changed my mom's life! My mom, with Parkinsons, went from needing full assistance to get into bed and to get out of a chair, to being completely independent to climb into bed, get down and up off the floor, and can easily get out of a chair without using her hands. I am beyond grateful for the work Claire has done with my mom and I could not have asked for a better therapist! Thank you thank you!

Claire is a passionate advocate for exercise as medicine for PWP. Her education, training, and experience make her a powerful force to personify the value of specialized exercises to combat the life-altering symptoms of Parkinson’s. With exercises tailored to my needs, Claire provided me with a new direction in my program and provided me with invaluable motivation. Claire is simply a treasure. I cannot say it strongly enough: meet individually with her, or at the very least, hear her present at a conference or symposium. Either way, you will walk away absolutely convinced of the necessity of a powerful exercise program to enable you to live the best life you can. The bonus: you will be in the presence of a strong and caring woman who is a difference maker. More importantly, she will make your life better.

Thank you simply does not express the immense gratitude that I have for Claire and what she has done for me.
Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. I was very concerned that I would not be able to continue enjoying my active lifestyle. Learning that exercise was important in slowing disease progression gave me hope, but I didn’t know what type of exercise or how much was ideal. Claire was introduced to me and I was impressed with her level of competency. She helped me create a balanced exercise program that included cardio, weight training, and power moves. My stamina, strength, and flexibility have improved tremendously, allowing me to continue with the activities that I’ve always loved: kayaking, snorkeling, bicycling, and more.
My life has continued to be full and satisfying because of my relationship with Claire.

Before being introduced to Claire in 2013, I was not a fan of exercise, especially exercise that pushed me beyond my comfort zone. With exercise I quickly started to reap the benefits of reduced rigidity and improved comfort of living in my body.
Now in 2018 I have achieved a level of fitness I never thought personally possible. Do I love exercise? I love the benefit my body and mind get from exercise, I love the comradery of working out next to others like me, and I love that 12 years into this PD journey I know that exercise will continue to be a tool I can count on to live well with PD!
So here is a callout to NON exercise enthusiasts, JOIN A CLASS WITH CLAIRE TODAY - the quality of your life will improve beyond expectations – and what is not to love about that!

I have had Parkinson for about 10 years. I’m a 70-year-old physician and exercise devotee. I met Claire through one of her students Teri at a Parkinson’s meeting sponsored by Cedars-Sinai. I’ve never had a trainer before. Claire has been a gift from heaven. I no longer feel defeated. Since I started training with her, work has been much easier as has keeping up with my family. I’m swimming and skiing again. Besides her talent as a trainer, she’s a wonderful person and there if I need her. I strongly recommend Claire and her programs for anyone challenged with Parkinson.
~Tom Zarchy, Rogue client
Claire has been a revelation in my ongoing journey with Parkinson’s Disease. She has a deep understanding of the physical challenges and is a wealth of resources for improving my quality of life, including a referral for speech therapy and nutritional guidelines. Her positive attitude inspires me to work towards leading a more active life.
