"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!

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
