What is Rock Steady Boxing?
Rock Steady at The Social enables people with Parkinson’s disease to fight their symptoms by providing non-contact boxing-style fitness programs that improve their quality-of-life, sense of efficacy and self-worth.
How do I participate?
Prior to attending a class, participants must meet with our instructors for a 30 minute individual assessment and have their doctor complete a medical release prior to participating in their first class. Individual Levels will be assigned during this assessment. The cost of this assessment is $15.00 payable to the trainers. Classes cost $5.00 per session and punch cards can be purchased for multiple classes for your convenience. Gloves and gel wraps are required equipment, and we are happy to assist you in purchasing. No boxing experience is necessary and all ages are invited to participate.
What are workouts like?
Our classes are taught by certified Rock Steady Boxing coaches. Workouts include strength training flexible reaction time, balance, core work, high intensity training, focus mitts and circuit weight training. Our coaches also work with our boxers on voice activation (being loud) and fine motor skills. Rock Steady Boxing classes have proven that anyone at any level of Parkinson’s disease can lessen their symptoms. Our boxers have exhibited improvements in their balance, coordination, tremors, strength and happiness.
What are the costs?
The initial Assessment costs $15 and is paid directly to the assessing coach. Sessions are $5 per class, with punch cards ($15 for 3 classes | $60 for 12 classes) available for purchase. Punch cards are kept on file in the gym for your convenience.
