Rock Steady Boxing is a one-of-a-kind program providing a uniquely effective form of physical exercise to people who are living with Parkinson’s. Exercises are largely adapted from boxing drills. Training classes include an exercise program that attacks Parkinson’s at its vulnerable neurological points while focusing on overall fitness.
Boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork, and overall strength to defend against and overcome opponents. At Rock Steady Boxing, Parkinson’s disease is the opponent. Exercises vary in purpose and form but share one common trait: they are rigorous and intended to extend the perceived capabilities of the participant.
