Boxing for Parkinson’s improves functional mobility, activities of daily living, gait speed, gait endurance and quality of life in people living with Parkinson’s disease. Come join our high-energy six-week program where we focus on boxing techniques, postural awareness, weight shifting, breath control and increased amplitude of movement. The classes are taught by a physical therapist with more than 20 years of boxing and martial arts experience.
This class runs two times a week for six weeks. Over the course of the six weeks, you will learn how to properly hit targets (not each other!) held by our trainers; using
your hands and feet in various combinations. No prior boxing experience is required.
The cost for the program is $195.
Please call 603-501-5519 for upcoming class times and availability.
“Exercise is an important part of healthy living for everyone. For people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), exercise is more than healthy — it is a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and activities of daily living. Exercise and physical activity can improve many PD symptoms. These benefits are supported by research.
The Parkinson’s Outcomes Project shows that people with PD who start exercising earlier and a minimum of 2.5 hours a week, experience a slowed decline in quality of life compared to those who start later. Establishing early exercise habits is essential to overall disease management.” – The Parkinson’s Foundation
