Why Rock Steady?

Knockout Parkinson's

Boxing & Parkinson’s

Boxing is a high intensity full body workout that challenges balance, gait, range of movement, cognitive skills and more in a way that uniquely benefits Parkinson’s patients. 

The Rock Steady Boxing program is designed to capitalize on the benefits of boxing but with drills that focus on improving the quality of life for persons with Parkinson’s. 

Individual Focus

RSB boxers have reported benefits including lower dosages of medicine, reduced tremors, improved balance and overall enhanced quality of life.

Parkinson’s disease affects every individual differently and thus, results from the RSB program will vary. 

The exercise program will also match your individual needs and will challenge you at your fitness and ability level.
