is proud to partner with
Spaulding Rehab Center
...to support their Rock Steady Boxing program!
Developed in 2006 and offered now in 25 states, Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) improves quality of life by adapting elements of training for boxers to the unique needs of people with Parkinson’s. Exercises address four hallmark features of Parkinson’s: rigidity/stiffness, postural control, tremor, and slowness of movement (bradykinesia). Through a carefully planned sequence of progressive exercises, boxers improve balance, agility, endurance, posture, and voice. Classes meet twice weekly for six weeks at a boxing gym in Hyannis. Spaulding therapists certified in RSB lead the 90-minute sessions. In addition to functional improvement, RSB participants appreciate the camaraderie of striving with peers and the motivating power of therapists who are passionate about the program.
Self-pay program. Free screening required prior to joining the program. For information or pre-registration, contact Spaulding Rehab at 508.833.4078.
*Note: These classes are popular and fill up quickly! Osterville Fitness' Pedaling class is a safe alternative to the Rock Steady Boxing program if there are not currently spots in the RSB program. For our current boxers, pedaling can also be taken in conjunction with RSB!
