Rock Steady Boxing

Rock Steady Boxing, led by certified instructors provides high-intensity exercise for patients more likely to be directed toward low-intensity activities. In addition to the exercise benefits, with boxing, patients can feel empowered by “fighting back” against PD. Unlike traditional boxing, there is no contact, no sparring and no hitting. As with traditional boxing rounds, however, there are intensive periods of work and then rest as the patient makes traditional boxing moves aimed at boxing equipment instead of a human opponent.

Unlike other exercise forms like stationary bike-riding or walking or running on a treadmill, “Rock Steady Boxing” also challenges the brain by encouraging the patient to think about the movements the instructor is giving.

The Rock Steady Boxing Program is on-campus at the JFK for Life Health & Fitness Center. To get more information, call 732-632-1610.
