Rock Steady Boxing in Mountain Home
Parkinson’s Disease Strength Building Program
Through the efforts of the Mruk Family Education Center on Aging,
Rock Steady Boxing has come to Mountain Home! Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) is a program for those
with Parkinson’s Disease (PD), and it is a great way to enhance
their daily quality of life. This program has the potential to build power,
strength, flexibility, and balance where it was once been lost because
of this degenerative disease.
Rock Steady Boxing Mountain Home coaches have been trained in the RSB methods
to help participants fight their way out of the PD corner and help them
feel and function better! Non-contact boxing works because it moves the
body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as
participants move through the workout sessions. These classes can help
anyone with PD at any stage.
