What is Rocksteady Boxing?
Rocksteady Boxing is a unique exercise program designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s disease. Rock Steady Boxing, (RSB) the first and only boxing program of its kind in the country, was founded in Indianapolis in 2006 by former Marion County Prosecutor, Scott C. Newman, who is living with Parkinson’s. RSB gives people with Parkinson’s disease hope by improving their quality of life through a non-contact boxing-based fitness curriculum. Since 2006 RSB has grown to over 126 affiliates in the US and internationally! By focusing on agility, balance, strength, and coordination, our workouts are tailored to address the specific challenges posed by Parkinson’s disease.
Empowerment Through Exercise
Parkinson’s disease can present a range of physical and mental challenges, but research has shown that exercise can have a positive impact on symptom management. Our boxing-inspired workouts are not only effective for improving mobility and strength, but they also boost confidence and provide a sense of achievement.
