In this corner, HOPE!
Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) Orlando enables people with Parkinson’s disease to FIGHT their disease and gives HOPE by improving their quality of life through a non-contact boxing based fitness curriculum. Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative movement disorder which can cause deterioration of motor skills, balance, speech, and sensory function.
RSB Orlando provides encouragement through a “tough love” approach, inspiring maximum effort, speed, strength, balance, and flexibility. Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. Recent studies suggest that intense exercise programs may be “neuroprotective”, actually working to delay the progression of symptoms.
RSB Orlando classes prove that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier/happier life. At Rock Steady Boxing Orlando, Parkinson’s disease is the opponent. Exercises vary in purpose and form from voice exercises (yes, we get loud!) to ground and pound on the punching bag, but all share one common trait: they are intended to extend the perceived capabilities of the participant in an innovative, motivating, and fun environment.
Proud supporters of Parkinson’s of Central Florida, as we work together in the Central Florida community to continue moving the Fight Against Parkinson’s Disease FORWARD.
