Heads up, Berkeley Heights community! The Summit Area YMCA is excited to restart our Parkinson's Exercise Class from June 30th, every other Friday from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm through August 11th. Starting August 18th, the class will run weekly.
Tailored for individuals with Parkinson's disease, this unique exercise program focuses on improving symptoms and enhancing the quality of life. Designed based on the latest scientific research, the class incorporates forced exercise, aerobic training, and dissociated movements to optimize mobility and restore lost function.
It's not just about fitness— it's about building a supportive community. Exercises are performed sitting, standing, and walking, and are designed for those who can tolerate about 40 minutes of activity.
Join us this summer! YMCA members attend for free, while community members can join for a small fee of $10.00 per class. Register today and unleash the power of movement!

SUMMIT AREA YMCA
In 1886, we were founded as the Young Men's Christian Association, but today, we are The Y. An association that values, and is made stronger by, its diverse people. We stand for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility — For a better us. We are committed to creating equal opportunity for all regardless of gender, age, disability, income, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive culture in which our four core values — responsibility, honesty, caring and respect — are integral to everyday operations.
Each year, as one of the area’s leading 501(c)3 charitable organizations, the Summit Area YMCA serves more than 15,000 individuals with our free and fee-based programs and services in an area spanning the New Jersey communities of Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. Our history is rooted in working side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Through the generosity of our members, donors, and partners, we are able to offer financial assistance for our programs and services to those in need.
