Rock Steady Boxing

Who We Are

Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) is a first-of-its-kind, nonprofit gym found in 2006 to provide an effective form of physical exercise to people who are living with Parkinson's. Though it may seem surprsing, this non-contact boxing-inspired fitness routine is dramatically improving the ability of people with Parkinson's to live independent lives. RSB was founded by Scott C. Newman, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease at age 40. 

What We Do

RSB enables people with Parkinson's Disease to fight their disease by providing non-contact, boxing-style fitness programs that improve their quality-of-life and sense od efficiacy and self-worth. Recent studies also suggest that intense exercise programs may be "neuro-protective", actually working to delay the progression of symptoms. RSB provides enouragement 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 continously changing the routine as you progress throughout the workout. RSB classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson's, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a happier/ healthier life. 

What We Offer

1. Classes: RSB offers two levels of classes to accomodate different fitness levels

2. Camaraderie/ Fellowship: for PD fighters and their care-partners/ caregivers
