ROCK STEADY BOXING
About Rock Steady Boxing
We are learning every day that there are ways in which people with Parkinson’s disease can enhance their daily quality of life and even build impressive power, strength, flexibility and speed! By exercising with coaches who know the ropes, you can fight your way out of the corner and start to feel and function better. Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. These classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier/happier life. Call us today!

Other Notes about Rock Steady Boxing:
- No one is too old to participate!
- There are 2 levels of classes. Exercises are always modified based on participant’s ability.
- The Mission: To improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s Disease through exercise and positive social interaction.
- If Parkinson’s Disease and its symptoms are not met with RESISTANCE, the disease will likely take the path of least resistance, progressing more rapidly than without exercise intervention.
- Most people who participate have never boxed so don’t let inexperience prevent you from joining!
- Many people with Parkinson’s Disease can be self-conscious about their symptoms. RSB was created as a safe haven for people with PD to share a sense of community, re-establish confidence and to not feel alone as they “fight back.”
