JAX HOPE INC welcomes all fighters of any age and
at any stage of Parkinson's Disease to join in our classes and start fighting back!
Rock Steady Boxing classes are offered at 2 levels to better meet the needs of all participants. Both classes will stay true to Rock Steady Boxing methods, involving a warm up, stretching and core workout, as well as intense strength training and coordination drills. Using the RSB curriculum outlined for both classes will allow for the greatest benefit to all fighters!
The level I/II class is geared for those in the earlier stages
of the disease, with functional balance and independent
walking ability. This is a fast-paced class with quick
The level III/IV class is designed for those in the more advanced stages of the disease, needing more individual attention, eased transitions, and the option for seated exercises. This class is best suited for those who may be using an assistive device, such as a cane or
wheelchair, and need a slower pace and frequent rest breaks.
* Each fighter will be evaluated to help
determine which class is best for maximum
