Rock Steady Boxing 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.
