Most of you on this site know I’ve been doing Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) for 10 years now. This is a non-contact boxing program that also incorporates balance, strength and endurance exercises. It’s not your “normal” boxing program because everyone there has PD just like you. You can go there and workout and not feel like everyone is wondering what is wrong with you because they feel the same and you can talk about those feelings just like you do on this website. There are 4 different levels from someone just diagnosed to someone in a wheelchair.
RSB was featured on HBO this week. Please watch this inspiring 6 min. video to see what it’s all about and how it has helped hundreds of PwP’s. My symptoms have progressed somewhat, but for being diagnosed 13 yrs. ago, most people cannot tell I have PD. With this program and a few meds, I have been able to improve the way I feel and help slow the progression. RSB has been able to reach out to hundreds of PwP’s because neurologists are seeing how it’s helping their patients and they are encouraging them to join. I know this program isn’t for everyone, but I also know from my own personal experience as well as others, that it truly works. Exercise in general helps, but this for strictly for PwP’s which is a big plus. If you don’t believe me, watch the video and see what you think.
