      One of my dad’s favorite exercise classes has been boxing. For a while, he boxed with Rock Steady Boxing. Now, his routine is a little more versatile. Do you like to box? If so, does it seem to help with Parkinson’s.

      Rock Steady Boxing equals Pedaling for Parkinson’s in effectiveness. The program, while exhausting, is the best all-body exercise. When I started I could not fasten my bra or lift my arm over my head. Now, I not only pedal and box, I have enough flexibility to to floor and chair Yoga. Observe a class! You may think (as I did) .. “I can’t do that!” But you can. Try  it, you’ll like it. Barbara

      I am now 75 years old and have gone to Rock Steady Boxing (boxing classes with the exercise routine only –no one to one competition–  that are dedicated to those with Parkinson’s) for about 4 years. I think it is amazing. The classes near me are about 10 to 20 people. There must be about 80 people total registered because we have classes on Mon thru Sat and several days have two offerings. A nice thing about it is everyone there has the same problem as you.  So if you  can’t do something or if you do not understand an instruction everyone is helpful and sympathic . I have never been in a group that has so much camaraderie.  The boxing routines can be confusing at first but everyone is on board afer 2 or 3 sessions. I do not consider myself an athlete by any measurement and I have found the classes to be fun and inspiring. Some of my best days have been days that included boxing. If you have a Rock Steady Boxing franchise near you, I strongly suggest you give a try. My sister who is 85 just joined  a group in her area and feels the same as I do.
