Good Morning! There is a program called Rock steady boxing, providing a non-contact boxing fitness curriculum that is proven to help individuals regain function through forced intense exercise. It is absolutely incredible! Visit rocksteadyboxing.org for more details!

It was suggested by our Physical Therapist who does the Big and Loud program with my husband that he use a speed bag for exercise and balance. We purchased one that fits on any door and he uses it daily. I'm amazed at how he can lift his arms to shoulder height and hit the bag quickly and with both hands and have perfect balance. He also can keep his balance while tossing a ball back and forth and even pick it up off the floor.

Boy, you peaked Carl's interest! We will check it out when we get home from the grocery! Thanks!

PS we are checking this out on Monday! There are two classes in our area! One has classes five days a week and one has classes six days a week! Thank you for sharing! This is exactly what Carl wants!

My husband has been doing this program for 5 months. He enjoys it a lot. Today he had an evaluation and it seems there has been minor improvement in gait and balance. But just the fact that he gets up, gets dressed and has a place to go to improves his day. He comes home tired but has something to talk about and wants to converse. Participating in something outside the house expands his world that Parkinson's has shrunk. For him it has been a very positive experience.

My husband has also been doing twice-weekly boxing with other Parkinson's friends. He really enjoys it!
