Rock Steady Boxing

Rock Steady Boxing is the first program of its kind in the nation dedicated to the fight against Parkinson’s Disease. Through adapted boxing drills designed to increasing agility, endurance, speed, strength, and flexibility, participants will enhance their daily lives and their fight against Parkinson’s Disease. Exercises vary in purpose and form but share one common trait: they are rigorous and intended to extend the perceived capabilities of the participant. Our clients attest to the improved quality of life among program participants.

We are learning every day that there are ways in which people with Parkinson’s disease can enhance their quality of life and even build 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. These classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier and happier life.

How to sign up: Call or email Darrell

Dates: This is an ongoing program that begins with the official participation of the fighter.
