Join our TicFit workout series every Monday at 12pm EST/9a PST during Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month!
The series is designed to support Miles for Tourette, a virtual awareness fitness series that the community can join in from all over the nation. Each class participated in is equivalent to 1 mile, or 1,500 steps towards your Miles for Tourette weekly challenges.
About TicFit: This workout series is designed as an exercise protocol to help you use a specific way of exercising to manage your tics. Every tic interrupts your breath. Sometimes breathing is the tic. Activities like exercise are proved to help to reduce motor tics and the goal of this series is to provide each person more specific direction. Cardio helps because it regulates your breath but you can do that with strength workouts as well.
“I’ve learned to manage my tics by learning to managing my breath (as a swimmer and water polo player) and most importantly by controlling the muscles that are used for breathing.”
