Rock Steady Boxing

Rock Steady Boxing enables individuals with Parkinson’s disease to fight their disease by providing non-contact boxing-style fitness programs that are designed to 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 by 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 may benefit anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, and may actually lessen their symptoms and lead to a healthier, happier life.

Boxing classes, taught by Rock Steady Boxing Certified Coaches, include an exercise program that attacks Parkinson’s at its vulnerable neurological points. While focusing on overall fitness, strength training, reaction time and balance, workouts include: focus mitts, heavy bags, speed bags, jump rope, core work, calisthenics and circuit weight training. No boxing experience is necessary and people of all ages are invited to participate. Boxers, both male and female, range in age from mid-30s to early 90s.
