Rock Steady Boxing/ABQ

I saw a feature story on CBS in December of 2016. It was done by Leslie Stahl (CBS correspondent) who's husband has Parkinson's disease. It featured a boxing gym with lots of seniors exercising and performing boxing techniques. Not hitting one another but boxing large body bags, speed bags and target mits held by the Coaches of Rock Steady Boxing. Right away I told myself 'I'm going to bring that to Albuquerque.' Well I did. Today, we have over 85 local seniors with Parkinson's disease in our program and we feature class on M, W, F. If you or someone you love, or someone you know has PD, please call us to schedule a time to stop by to observe our 11:30 class. Watching this class will change your life.

Rock Steady Boxing is a health and wellness program designed for people with Parkinson’s Disease, a neurological condition that affects balance, strength, walking, and especially confidence. It’s based on a foundation of non-contact boxing, and it’s very effective for improving all of the symptoms that people with PD typically experience.
