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.
You cannot combine or mix or match due to being assigned a cohort.

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.
Parkinson's Caregiver Support Group
Our Parkinson's Support Group offers a forum where family care partners (spouses) can talk, share, and learn from each other. All members of the Randolph YMCA Community, Rock Steady Boxing Program, and their loved ones are welcome! These complimentary support groups are facilitated by Heidi Rinsky-Schnapp, MA, CSW, CMC, a Randolph YMCA volunteer, and co-founder of LMR Elder Care, LLC. All meetings will continue via Zoom at 12:30 pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. *Please reach out to either Brenda at firstname.lastname@example.org or Heidi at email@example.com if you would like to be included in this group or for further information.
