ROCK STEADY BOXING LONDON ONTARIO

Living Better with Parkinson's

TRAIN TO REVERSE, REDUCE, AND DELAY PARKINSON'S SYMPTOMS!
We are learning every day that there are ways in which people with Parkinson’s disease can enhance their quality of life and even build strength, flexibility and speed!

By exercising with coaches who know the ropes, you can fight your way out of the corner and start to feel and function better. These non-contact boxing classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier and happier life.

 

OUR PROMISE

A safety first and affordable  program for all levels of Parkinson’s

“Rock Steady boxing has been so good for me, not just for my physical health but for my mental health as well. I haven't been in such good shape for years, which sounds crazy considering I have Parkinson's, but it's true. While I'm boxing and working out I forget that I have Parkinson's, and feel more like my old self- strong, capable, optimistic. It's a wonderful community of caring individuals, and an important part of my life now.”

Inclusive Parkinson's Social Athletic Community

“I see RSB to be a positive experience in every way. It has given me the opportunity to meet new friends with similar needs and issues related to Parkinson’s and to interact with them both at RSB  and at social gatherings outside of classes. It is an outlet to share the experiences of  the other participants as they cope with Parkinson’s.  The three times per week sessions provide me with needed exercise targeting areas such as balance, strength, stamina and voice quality.  We are fortunate to  benefit from the dedication  and competency of RSB instructors/leaders who work hard each session to improve our skills.”

A Lasting Impact

“Rock Steady Boxing has strengthened my resolve to fight the progression of my disease. That has meant everything in terms of moving forward with a positive ‘glass half-full’ attitude that impacts all areas of my daily living routines. My Coaches are always there to push me a little harder and so support my resolve”
