We are Rock Steady Boxing Northern Nevada, fighting back against Parkinson’s disease. We are a certified rock steady boxing affiliate (based out of Indianapolis). We currently offer classes in Carson City and Reno, NV specifically designed for people with Parkinson’s disease.
We are a part of Tazmanian boxing club. Our mission is to provide hope, empowerment and healthy lifestyle interventions to people with health challenges.
Rock Steady Boxing enables people with Parkinson’s disease to fight their disease by providing non-contact, boxing-style fitness programs that improve their quality of life and sense of self-efficacy & self-worth. Studies about Parkinson’s disease suggest that intense exercise programs are “neuro-protective”, working to delay the progression of symptoms. Rock Steady Boxing provides encouragement through a “tough love” approach, inspiring maximum effort, speed, strength, balance & flexibility. Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you move through the workout. Rock steady classes have proven that anyone, regardless of their level of Parkinson’s, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier & happier life.
We are a 501c3 non-profit organization and appreciate your help & support. Your donations go to help pay our coaches, purchase equipment, provide scholarships for boxers who cannot afford gym memberships, open more rock steady locations in the area & provide education seminars to the community.
