Rock Steady Boxing and Delay the Disease

Rock Steady Boxing and Delay the Disease


Class Description

Rock Steady Boxing consists of group boxing designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s Disease. Each class focuses on increasing strength, endurance, balance, fine motor skills and power. Classes are taught by certified Rock Steady Boxing coaches and experienced Physical Therapists with 30+ years of experience working with people who have Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological disorders. Delay the Disease™, is a fitness program designed to empower people with PD to take control of the disease with daily exercise. The powerful results of the Delay the Disease exercise program can help participants move about with ease and confidence in a crowd; get out of bed or rise from a chair independently; improve handwriting; dress independently; diminish worry that stiffness, slow steps and other symptoms are obvious; and regain a sense of moving with normality. Our mission is simple: to provide a gym-like environment in a safe, welcoming space in which individuals with neurological issues can participate in exercise classes specific to their diagnosis, attend private or group workout sessions, and receive individualized attention to help them regain independence and improve their quality of life. All of these classes and sessions are run by licensed physical therapists Amy Bertram and Colleen Schuster. Our goal is to help those with neurological disorders live healthier lives.
