Rock Steady Boxing
Rock Steady Boxing is a unique exercise program, based on training used by boxing pros that is adapted for people with Parkinson’s disease. The program involves regular exercises, such as stretching, bicycling, running, jump-roping, push-ups, balancing and lots of non-contact boxing, led by experienced trainers/coaches. This program serves both men and women of all ages and levels of ability, giving people with Parkinson’s disease hope. The program enables people with Parkinson’s to fight their illness by providing non-contact boxing-style fitness classes that improves their quality of life.
Rock Steady Boxing classes are divided into two levels based upon each person’s unique Parkinson’s symptoms and overall level of fitness. We require all boxers to complete a one-on-one assessment with coach to determine the class placement that would be of greatest benefit to them. Classes are only offered at the downtown YMCA.

Rock Steady Boxing has been a life changing experience for me. My balance, strength, stamina and walking gait have improved notably since being introduced to RSB nearly two years ago. I look forward to going to RSB at the Downtown YMCA not only for the workout, but to see the friends I've made on my Parkinson's journey. ROCK STEADY!
I went with my dad on an open house day and the work out kicked my butt. These are some true, dedicated, and strong fighters!
