Exercise is now seen as a significant part of alleviating Parkinson's symptoms. Ann first started Gym work in Brisbane in 2013 and this continued right up to the start of the pandemic in early 2020.


The subsequent lack of exercise during the pandemic shutdowns has contributed to a lessening in general mobility.

Ann has resumed her exercise programme at the GYM using an exercise programme designed for her by an exercise physiologist that has recently set up a visiting schedule for Casino.

It is unfortunate that the Australian Government mandated shutdowns during the Pandemic have now been thoroughly discredited for lacking in science and being driven largely by political imperatives.

Fortunatley, Ann has now recovered the fitness lost, but only after a concerted effort at both the GYM and other exercise classes.
