Please join us IN PERSON at Thrive Space or online via our zoom link for this exercise class that will focus on boxing! We will focus on shadow boxing vs using boxing equipment but if you have boxing equipment at home, have it ready. Many skills that boxers train for parallel the symptoms of Parkinson’s so we will work on quickness of movement, hand eye coordination, flexibility, strengthening, balance and more.
Make sure you have good footwear on, water, space to move, and an adventurous attitude. Our Tuesday and Saturday Boxing classes will be high level/high intensity (Level 1/2 classes if you are familiar with Rock Steady Boxing classifications) All of our classes can be adapted to most any functional level and instructions will be given throughout the class to make it more or less challenging depending on your needs.
