Monthly Meetup Series: Stay “Rock Solid” with Rock Steady Boxing

December 13, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

 

Improve Your Range of Motion, Flexibility, Posture, Agility, Core Strength, & Mental Acuity

 

Join NWPF and Cappy’s Boxing Gym in this virtual information session to learn more about their ***FREE*** Rock Steady Boxing Classes; a no-contact boxing program designed for people living with PD.

 

Class Description:

Studies have shown that rigorous exercise, like a boxer’s workout, can positively impact the range of motion, flexibility, posture, and other activities of daily living for people with Parkinson’s disease. Our class consists of a full-body warm-up, boxing basics, footwork practice, abdominal strengthening, and heavy bag and focus mitt combinations. We have coaches and volunteers ready to meet our boxers where they are and grow their skills in a safe and effective boxing environment.

“I’ve had Parkinson’s for twenty years—long enough to see real changes. Everything PD disrupts is trained in RSB: balance, agility, strength, speed, flexibility, endurance—we even work on speaking volume. For me Parkinson’s makes everything harder but nothing’s impossible when I decide to do it, and Rock Steady motivates me to give that extra effort. The drills have translated to better function away from the gym. It’s also great to workout with a similarly challenged, similarly motivated group of PD athletes. Finally the coaches are fantastic! They’re all experienced boxers, and volunteer for this because of some wonderful internal drive that I appreciate tremendously.” –Chris A., Cappy’s RSB Boxer

Dear Members of the Parkinson’s Community,

At Cappy’s Boxing Gym, we want you to know that you are not alone on your journey. Living with Parkinson’s disease can bring its own set of challenges, but it doesn’t define who you are or what you can achieve. Our team of dedicated coaches are here to support you every step of the way. We understand the unique needs and concerns that come with Parkinson’s, and we’re committed to providing a safe, welcoming, and empowering environment where you can thrive.

Boxing has the power to transform lives, and we’ve seen incredible strength and resilience in our Parkinson’s community. Together, we’ll work towards improving your mobility, balance, coordination, and overall well-being.

Remember, you are stronger than you think, and you have a community here at Cappy’s that believes in your potential. Let’s continue this journey together, one punch at a time.

With determination and support,

The Cappy’s Boxing Gym Team
