Patrick LoSasso, Personal Trainer, CSCS, is the creator of SmartXPD. SmartXPD is a revolutionary approach to exercise for Parkinson’s disease that delivers results. A distillation of secret techniques employed by top athletic trainers who train their elite athletes to beat the competition, Patrick incorporates these coveted strategies into the “sport” of Parkinson’s to help you fight the disease, and win.
“Patrick’s exercise program is life changing. I have Parkinson’s, but Parkinson’s doesn’t have me! “ – Mel R., Age 94. Diagnosed 7 years ago.
Patrick’s DVD programs offer a unique and evidenced based method for those with Parkinson’s, young or old, that deliver results, fast.
Patrick has served the Parkinson’s community for over 15 years as a trainer and a volunteer advocate for PWP (People with Parkinson’s). During this time, Patrick also competed as an athlete in the sport of boxing. As a boxer, he quickly recognized the importance of training the body to an elite level of athletic conditioning. During sparring sessions with other boxers, he observed that his incorporation of hand eye coordination challenges made him a more powerful adversary. He quickly brought opponents to their knees.
When Patrick avoided a jab and countered with a hook, he realized that this informed the same struggle that someone with Parkinson’s encounters, everyday. When someone with Parkinson’s walks down the street they must navigate curbs, climb stairways, walk through doors, or avoid a person walking towards them. Thus began Patrick’s journey to develop a training protocol to make lives of PWP better.
Patrick’s application of this simple principal resulted an empirical difference immediately. His clients reported that they felt better, improved function and felt more poised to address the challenges of the day, many times in one exercise session.
This resulted in the creation of the Smartx-PD training system:
If you have Parkinson’s, you must fight back. Your opponent is the disease. You now have a caring coach in your corner. All of Patrick’s SmartX-PD DVD’s are designed to make your life better through fun and effective exercise. Become proactive in the management of your disease and begin an exercise program, today.
