Rock Steady Boxing

for Parkinson's

About the Program

Rock Steady Boxing is a program designed for those with Parkinson’s Disease.  As the name suggests, boxing is a portion of the class protocol, with additional emphasis placed on exercises and activities to improve agility, endurance, balance, hand-eye coordination, and strength.  Rock Steady Boxing classes will meet Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.  ​Participants must complete an assessment and provide medical clearance prior to attending their first class.

Become an Instructor  

If you are interested in getting involved in the Rock Steady Boxing program and have availability to lead class Monday, Wednesday, and/or Friday at 11am, please contact Keisha Lockhart at keisha.lockhart@ymca-ywca.org or 641-752-8658.  An online training is provided to become a Rock Steady Boxing Coach.

Be a Program Volunteer

Volunteers greatly help out our coaches by assisting in set up before the class, ensuring the safety of all of the boxers during the class, and being a great support system to make the classes fun and meaningful for the boxers.  This volunteer opportunity is suitable for adults of any age.  If you have a desire to motivate and help others, this is a great opportunity.   Training is provided.  Click here to learn more.
