PARKINSON'S PROGRAMS

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Our Parkinson's program improves the quality of life for people battling Parkinson's Disease through non-contact, boxing-inspired fitness training. Training classes include an exercise program that attacks Parkinson's at its vulnerable neurological points, while focusing on overall fitness, strength training, reaction time, and balance. Medical research shows that intense exercises can reduce, reverse, and delay Parkinson's Disease symptoms. No boxing experience is necessary, and people of all ages are invited to participate.
