ROCK STEADY BOXING IS HERE!
About the Program
Our Mission: To empower people living with Parkinson's Disease to fight back.
What is Rock Steady Boxing? Rock Steady Boxing improves the quality of life for people battling Parkinson’s disease through non-contact, boxing inspired fitness training. Our class is led by Nick Rippy, certified Rock Steady Boxing instructor.
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 healther and happier life. Call us today!
