Knoxville’s First Gym with Parkinson’s Focused Classes
Research shows that exercise is a vital component of combating Parkinson’s disease. Exercising regularly can ease symptoms and improve your health, as well as slow, stop, or even improve the progression of your symptoms.
Are you suffering from Parkinson’s and are ready to fight back? Rock Steady Boxing Knoxville is a great way to get the upper hand on Parkinson’s disease. This non-contact boxing based program adapts boxing drills to help you work on your balance, muscular endurance, range of motion, contralateral movement, and other motor skills that may be affected by Parkinson’s. Make Parkinson’s your opponent, and let’s fight together to defend against and overcome it.
Cycling class for those with Parkinson’s Disease
This “forced exercise” which is done on an indoor stationary bicycle is designed specifically for those with Parkinson’s disease. It’s an hour long class including a warmup at the start and a cool down towards the end. Whether you choose to do this online or with us in the gym, you’ll experience the benefits of exercise on your overall motor function.
