We are learning every day that there are ways in which people with Parkinson's disease can enhance their daily quality of life and even build impressive power, strength, flexibility and speed! By exercising with Coaches who know the ropes, you can fight your way out of the corner and start to feel and function better. In a University of Indianapolis study involving boxing training for people with Parkinson's disease, they discovered that patients showed short and long term improvements including balance, gait, activities of daily living and quality of life. Classes are typically 10-12 week sessions.
