Rock Steady Boxing, a unique exercise program based on training used by boxing pros and adapted to people with Parkinson’s disease, is now available at St. Bernards Health & Wellness in Jonesboro.

Rock Steady Boxing classes will begin January 1, with pre-program assessments currently underway.

The program involves regular exercises, such as stretching, running, jump-roping, push-ups, balancing and lots of non-contact boxing, led by experienced trainers/coaches. Rock Steady Boxing serves both men and women of all ages and levels of ability.

This will be the first Rock Steady Boxing program in this area of the state.

The Rock Steady Boxing Method was developed in Indianapolis over the course of seven years. In 2012, the Training was launched to share the Rock Steady Boxing Method with other people who are fighting back against Parkinson’s. Today, there are over 700 Rock Steady Boxing affiliate programs around the world, initiated by certified Rock Steady Boxing “Coaches.” All completed the requirements of Rock Steady Boxing and have been officially certified.
