I am 60 years old. A little over a year ago, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. While my symptoms are not very     noticeable or inhibiting, I am aggressively trying to maintain physical exercise as a major commitment. My only exercise was (and continues to be) jogging six out of seven days a week. My neurologist recommended that I consider working with an exercise trainer and recommended Jonathan. I have been training with Jonathan for almost a year. I have never worked with a trainer before.

With Jonathan’s guidance, I am now more fit than I have ever been in my life. His knowledge is encyclopedic and he designs excellent workout programs customized to his client’s needs. He emphasizes balance in his work with me, as that can become an issue with Parkinson’s. Additionally, he has created a broad, multi-faceted work out program for both my wife and me. He is very gentle and patient, bringing his client’s along at their own pace. Jonathan is a compassionate, optimistic person; he makes the workouts fun as well as healthy. I cannot recommend him strongly enough.

Jonathan Rose wants as many people as possible to reap the amazing benefits of exercising regularly and eating healthy.  He provides people with exercise programs that are specifically designed for them to set them up for success to get on a well rounded exercise program helping them:  get stronger, more flexible, reduce weight and body fat if needed, improve posture, improve balance, mobility and agility, as well as stamina.  

Since 1992 he has been training children, adults and seniors to help them get in their best shape.  He specializes in working with seniors and people with Parkinson’s. He is very concerned about older people getting regular exercise so they have the strength, mobility and balance to live their lives and to decrease their vulnerability to falling.  He also trains caregivers and family members to help incorporate exercise in the people they are taking care of.  He develops programs for people who have Parkinson’s to manage and reduce their symptoms and teaches the caregivers and family members to help manage as well.  He teaches them exercises and stretches to do.  

Jonathan has a degree in Exercise Science and is a NASM Master Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist, Senior Specialist, Weight Loss Specialist, and Behavior Change Specialist.  He is also a Corrective Exercise Specialist in The Biomechanics Method as well as has two certifications by Gary Gray, Certification in Applied Functional Science and 3D Maps.
