Boxing at the Y

Rock Steady Boxing

Rock Steady Boxing is a unique exercise program, based on training used by boxing pros that is adapted for people with Parkinson’s disease.  The program involves regular exercises, such as stretching, bicycling, running, jump-roping, push-ups, balancing and lots of non-contact boxing, led by experienced trainers/coaches.  This program serves both men and women of all ages and levels of ability, giving people with Parkinson’s disease hope.  The program enables people with Parkinson’s to fight their illness by providing non-contact boxing-style fitness classes that improve their quality of life.

Rock Steady Boxing classes are divided into two levels based upon each person’s unique Parkinson’s symptoms and overall level of fitness. We require all boxers to complete a one-on-one assessment with coach to determine the class placement that would be of greatest benefit to them.
