Why Rock Steady Boxing (RSB)?
At the Geneva Lakes Family YMCA strengthening the community is our cause. We are leading an effort to bring an innovative fitness therapy program designed specifically for individual’s battling Parkinson’s Disease to our area.
The program, called Rock Steady Boxing, is proven to slow and reverse Parkinson’s symptoms and has been featured on CBS news: Watch The Video.
John O. & Les M. (pictured above) are two of the many members of our community who are fighting Parkinson’s and are working with us to bring Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) to our Y. John participates in RSB in Marco Island, FL, during the winter. Les travels twice a week to the Madison area (the closest program site to us) for classes. Through their regular participation in RSB, both men experience dramatic improvements in their physical health and daily functioning.
John’s wife, Pat, says RSB brings empowerment to her husband. “Rock Steady is an amazing, encouraging and impactful program. We need this in the Geneva Lakes community,” she said.
The Y will bring RSB to our area by Janury 2, 2017. If you are interested in supporting our efforts and wish to make a donation to help us cover program start-up costs, including instructor certifications, licensing fees & equipment. Please donate today!
