Everyone knows the inspirational story of American Ninja Warrior, Jimmy Choi. Despite daily battles with Parkinson’s disease, there is no quit in Jimmy. He continues to live his best life, stay fit, help others with their fitness goals, and all the while raise awareness for Parkinson’s disease.
April is Parkinson’s awareness month. Every April, Jimmy and his crew plan large dynamic events, meant to spread awareness & raise funds for this often misunderstood disease. “It’s more than just tremors. It’s depression, anxiety, slowness of movement, loss of balance, and even constipation…it really is a crappy disease,” explains Jimmy. But there’s a problem this year. “We are all stuck at home and most of the events that regularly generate awareness have been cancelled,” Jimmy says.
In true Fox Ninja fashion, Jimmy didn’t let the worldwide pandemic stop him. A plan for World Parkinson’s Day was formulated, and it’s a big one! Team Fox will attempt to break a world record for number of people on a virtual workout session for the comfort of your own home!

April is Parkinson’s awareness month. We are all stuck at home and most of the events that regularly generate awareness have been cancelled. So we (@uncorkedtoo @mvmtrevolution @leech120 and @jcfoxninja) wondered, how do we raise awareness for this, still misunderstood disease? It’s more than just tremors. It’s depression, anxiety, slowness of movement, loss of balance, and even constipation. Yes, constipation... it really is such a crappy disease. So what can we do about it to raise awareness? How about we break a world record? On World Parkinson’s Day, April 11th 2020 at 10AM central time, join us for a 5 minute workout, in your own home. Help us make some history! To register to be a part of a record breaking team, please register here (also in bio): https://movement-revolution.com/5liveregister How many people do we need? 100k. That's right 100 THOUSAND. We can’t reach 100k participation without your help! Please share with your family and friends and put it in your calendar as a reminder! In just 5 minutes, we can change the world. #fitness #parkinsonsawarenessmonth #parkinsons #5live #calistenics #worldrecord #michaeljfoxfoundation #goteamfox #davisphinneyfoundation #briangrantfounsarion #parkinsonsfoundation
