Rock Steady Boxing Westchester
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.
We are learning everyday that there are ways in which people with Parkinson’s disease can enhance their daily quality of life and even build impressive power, 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. Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. These classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier/happier life.
Nearly everyone with Parkinson’s disease can participate and receive benefit from Rock Steady Boxing. Some participants will require a cornerman (caretaker) to assist in each session. We require all potential boxers to complete a 1 hour assessment with our RSB Certified Trainer and Facility Owner Nina Preizler. This is imperitive for us to properly assess how to best taylor our classroom attention to meet the boxer’s particular needs.
