Fighting Parkinson’s with Boxing Gloves

In 2006, Rock Steady Boxing was founded in Indiana. This unique program featuring intense and high energy workouts has grown across the country. What makes it unique? It’s designed to help Parkinson’s patients fight against the daily battles waged by the disease. Nashville’s Rock Steady program is located at STEPS Fitness in Nashville and headed by trainer Colleen Bridges.

Some of the Blakeford team spoke to Colleen. We also spoke to some members of Rock Steady who have taken on boxing to battle Parkinson’s. And they’re seeing results.
