Rock Steady Boxing

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.

Fight Back UH20 Held in the Warm Water Pool

Our YMCA is the only facility in the United States to offer an aquatic boxing class.

How Aquatic Boxing can help:

  • Dramatically improves flexibility, range of motion, strength and balance.
  • It is an ideal environment for balance training
  • Participants are able to work on balance and gait training without fear of falling or injury "let's face it-the worst that can happen is you'll get wet"
  • UH20 is part of our Fight Back Against Parkinson's Program and is held exclusively in our Warm Water Pool.
