Rock Steady Boxing focuses on improving the quality of life for people battling Parkinson's disease through non-contact boxing inspired fitness training.
Fitness: Classes accommodate varying degrees of people with Parkinson's and their fitness levels.
Support: Coaches, caregivers, and other boxers understand Parkinson's and how to fight back.
Camaraderie: A community of fighters and caregivers.
Training classes include an exercise program that attacks Parkinson's at its vulnerable neurological points, while focusing on overall fitness, strength training, reaction time, and balance.
No boxing experience is necessary and people of all ages are invited to participate.
Classes are Monday and Wednesday. One group is running right now from 2:15-3:15pm.
1. Bringing a helper/corner to class may be a necessity depending upon level or ability.
2. Boxers workout barefoot or with socks on the mats.
3. Loose or workout clothes can make the movements easier. Boxer's are encouraged to wear what is comfortable.
4. No equipment is needed to start. Eventually boxer's do get there own pair of gloves.
Class tuition is paid per month. The cost is $80 each month per participant.
