With the prolongation of life expectancy, neurological diseases in particular, degenerative diseases such as a Parkinson see a significant upward trend. This increase has a negative impact on the quality of life of the patient and an increasingly unsustainable pressure on social and health systems. Rehabilitation, in particular intensive aerobic exercise, has recently been giving more and more evidence of effectiveness in terms of neuroprotection, neuroplasticity and neurogenesis, particularly in Parkinson disease. It is therefore important to correct the lifestyle by encouraging regular motor activity and consequently it is essential to train operators in the area such as Experts in Motor Sciences who work in gyms providing them with the necessary tools for a correct and safe management of this pathology especially in the initial stages of the disease.
