The Parkinson’s fight is on and I AM Movement is in your corner. Join our Rock Steady Boxing program so you can take a whack at PD. Certified coaches design active non-combative workouts based on actual boxing drills.
Exercises are adapted to address common Parkinson’s symptoms, such as tremors, motor skill loss, rigidity, impaired posture, and weak voice projection. Why boxing? It conditions the body on multiple levels by working on balance, strength, flexibility, agility, hand-eye coordination, and mental acuity…plus, it’s a lot of fun and oh-so cathartic!.
At I AM Movement, our goal is to help fighters enhance their quality of life while battling Parkinson’s disease.
Classes are exclusively for people with PD and their care partners creating a community of camaraderie. So, glove up and join the Rock Steady Boxing Irvine fight team. We’ll teach you the ropes so you can challenge Parkinson’s and be your own hero.
