IT’S TIME YOU TRIED OUT A BOXING SESSION with TITLE. Every Friday from 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM. This will challenge you mentally and physically. You will learn the skill, build your strength and belong to a community. This isn’t your ordinary and average workout but the great thing is YOU TAKE YOUR OWN PACE!
Boxing has been used to train individuals of all ages and abilities. It is well documented to help individuals with Parkinson’s. There are many neurological and physical benefits to this specific type of training. No experience necessary. All abilities welcome. Little to no additional equipment necessary. Can be done in the comfort of your own home.
We offer trainer led, 45-minute workouts including warm-up, stretching, boxing and cardiovascular exercises. Perfect for all abilities and no experience necessary. These sessions challenge participants both physically and mentally giving them the opportunity to improve their overall mental and physical health. The style of the session is trainer with a motivational approach vs “bootcamp” style. The positive reinforcement encourages everyone to try to the best of their ability and just keep active.
