Rock Steady Boxing: Fighting Back Against Parkinson’s
Rock Steady Boxing participants fight back against the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. With tough workouts, lots of laughter, and true camaraderie, we take on PD together.
How RSB Works:
Rock Steady Boxing is a non-contact boxing fitness class specifically designed for individuals with PD. This high-energy total body conditioning class adapts to provide an appropriate workout for all individuals.
RSB instructors motivate boxers through their infectious enthusiasm, fun workouts, and positive attitude.
No boxing experience is necessary! All classes are taught by certified Rock Steady Boxing coaches.
The classes focus on basic boxing drills and many, many other types of exercises including:
- Core strength
- Upper and lower body strength
- Fine motor skills
- Cognitive activities
Talk to your doctor. Participants must have an official diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease and physician’s approval to participate in RSB. Your doctor must complete the required medical release form. Download and complete these forms:
- Parkinson’s Disease questionnaire (PDQ-39)
- Physician Medical Release Form
- Waiver and liability release
Schedule a required pre-class assessment. Our instructor needs to meet you, learn your medical status, and discuss your goals. Arrange an appointment by email at RockSteadyBoxing@sjcc.org.
