  • About Curly

    Curly Dykstra - Parkinson Central

    Personal Trainer, Seasoned Instructor & Certified Parkinson's Cycle Coach

    For twenty years since becoming a certified Medical Exercise Specialist Curly Dykstra has had one thing on her mind; “I’m about helping people.” Her initial motivation began within her own experience. “I was overweight and depressed. I made up my mind that in order to help people, I need to help myself.”


    Now after many years in the fitness industry, she has found a particular passion among those suffering from Parkinson’s Disease. Dykstra has unlocked a training method which helps restore and maintain mobility and control for those suffering from the disease. By using a research-based methodology called “forced exercise” clients see amazing results.

    Those suffering from Parkinson’s can be helped. They can have a higher quality of life and a longer life. Parkinson’s is my calling and offering this training is something I truly believe in.”

    Curly has created a unique environment where people suffering from the disease can go for training and to support each other. Families and caretakers now have another source for cutting edge information and a compassionate expert to consult with about their loved ones.


    Dykstra additionally continues to train others on fitness and best practices for a healthy life. She received her certification in 1999 and has been on the move ever since.
