Boxing is an excellent form of exercise for individuals with Parkinson's! Research has shown functional mobility and quality of life improvement, for people who participated in boxing classes. Boxing involves power, speed, footwork and cognitive demands! Stephanie and Claire are certified in Rock Steady Boxing, and our work outs follow the format of RSB classes, although we don't utilize all the different bags since we are doing our workouts at home! There is still a lot you can do with boxing even without the specialized equipment. This class starts with a warm up, then the boxing workout includes combinations with shadow boxing and agility activities, then we work our core, and finally cool down.
