Rock Steady Boxing Classes - Fighting Back Against Parkinson's

Rock Steady Boxing enables people with Parkinson’s Disease to fight their disease by providing non-contact boxing style fitness programs to improve their quality of life, sense of efficacy and self-worth. Recent studies also suggest that intense exercise may be “neuro-protective”, actually working to delay the progression of symptoms.  RSB provides encouragement through a “tough-love” approach, inspiring maximum effort, speed, strength, balance and flexibility. By exercising you can fight your way out of the corner and start to feel and function better. RSB classes have proved that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier/happier life.

Boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, balance, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength to defend against and overcome opponents. With Rock Steady Boxing the opponent is Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s causes a loss in many of the same elements that boxers condition to improve. And published medical research has shown that forced, intense exercise can reduce, reverse and delay Parkinson’s symptoms. We also know that a diversity of symptoms needs to be addressed simultaneously. In comparison with other sports, boxing is the most physically demanding styles of training, according to a study conducted by ESPN and by people who have done it! But in addition to being an intense, diverse form of training, boxing is also an incredible stress reliever, confidence booster and FUN!

Training classes taught by April Sargeant, CPT , Rock Steady Boxing and Neuroboxing Certified, include an exercise program that attacks Parkinson’s at its vulnerable neurological points.  While training focuses on overall fitness, strength training, reaction time and balance, workouts include:  focus mitts, heavy bags, jumping, core work, calisthenics and circuit training. No boxing experience is necessary and people of all ages and levels are invited to participate!
