PARKINSON'S BOXING SESSIONS
In our training studios, exercises are largely adapted from boxing drills. For optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork & overall strength, exercise is important for people with Parkinson's because it helps maintain balance, mobility and to perform daily routines. Forcing the body to do a variety of different movements the brain cannot control. (Based on your ability) Quick bursts of movement, footwork & punching all leads to Neuroplasticity - The brains ability to rewire & reorganise itself by forming new neural connections through an alternate pathway.

But you can regain some control in a number of ways & improving your strength is one of them. Muscle strength is important for bone health, balance & just being strong enough for daily activites such as climbing stairs or carrying groceries. Physical activity is the number one contributor to longevity, adding extra years to your life, even if you don't start exercising until your senior years.
