Rock Steady Boxing enables people with Parkinson’s disease to fight their disease by providing non-contact boxing-stye fitness programs that improve their quality-of-life and sense of efficacy and self-worth.
Recent studies also suggest that intense exercise programs may be “neuro-protective,” actually working to delay the progression of symptoms. Rock Steady Boxing provides encouragement through a “tough love” approach inspiring maximum effort, speed, strength, balance and flexibility.
Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. Rock Steady Boxing classes have proven that anyone at any level of Parkinson’s can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier, happier life.
