Boxing For Parkinsons
Rock Steady Boxing of Orange County enables people battling Parkinson's, a degenerative movement disorder, to take an active role in improving their well being with non-contact boxing inspired fitness training. Exercises are based on traditional boxing drills and designed to optimize agility, speed, endurance, balance, hand-eye coordination, and overall strength. While exercises are adapted to individual capabilities and fitness levels, they remain rigorous and enable participants to push past self-imposed limits of ability—in other words, to fight! Led by ex-professional boxer/coach, Gary Ballard, Rock Steady Boxing serves both men and women of all ages and levels of ability.
