"Delay the Disease" is a fitness program designed by Jackie Russell and David Zid to empower people with Parkinson's Disease (PWP) by optimizing their physical function. It is the foundation for exercise classes geared specifically to counteract the movement challenges experienced by PWP and is available as a book, DVD, and newly released sequel  "Functional Fitness" DVD.  Participants boast about mobility improvement, regaining a greater degree of 'normalcy' and maintaining and improving independence. They enjoy the confidence of knowing that they are not defined by their disease anymore, they are now in control and can manage the disease proactively.  Zid and Russell agree wholeheartedly with the newest researchers who have begun to see exercise as "the new drug for Parkinson's."
