boxing with parkinson's

Why Boxing?

Boxing has emerged as a highly effective form of therapy for individuals living with Parkinson's. It's not just about the physical aspect; boxing engages both the body and the mind, helping to improve balance, coordination, agility, and overall quality of life. Through structured training sessions, participants can experience increased mobility, enhanced cognitive function, and a sense of empowerment over their condition.

About the Program

Our free weekly training sessions are led by experienced coaches who understand the unique needs of individuals with Parkinson's. Each session is designed to be safe, inclusive, and tailored to accommodate varying levels of ability. Whether you're a beginner or have prior experience, there's a place for you in our program. **Registration is not required but we do ask that you contact us prior to the weekly classes so we can manage the session sizes.
