"In my book most of the credit should go to you and your coaching team. We are so lucky to have found you. Your version of Rock Steady is nothing less than a miracle, without which fighting Parkinson's would be a nightmare. Thank you and bless you and your team for buying us more time, giving us hope and boosting our quality of life until more medical break troughs are found."

A.H.

"I  know I feel much better when I’m exercising. Most activities involving physical movement minimize or stops my tremor and stiffness; whether I’m working in the garden, preparing food, or washing dishes but working on the computer does not .

I can’t thank you and all the coaches enough for working together to create a program that helps to minimize our symptoms and to delay the progression of the disease!"

​       I am always researching on how to improve our program, It's clear how much intense induce exercise helps to slow down the progression of the disease.

What could be more intimidating than walking into a boxing gym full of strangers?  Not much but after one class at Rock Steady Boxing, you realize you’re hooked. Not only do you get in better shape, but you meet new friends who really understand you, motivate you, support you and in my case dance with you. I bring the music and the dancing just follows.

 

I decided to get involved with Rock Steady SD when a close family member was diagnosed with PD.  I am fortunate to help some of the most interesting people every day.  From the Performer who was in 10 major Broadway shows, to the Athlete who did 42 Marathons and 2 Ultra-marathons, to the engineers, doctors, teachers, veterans, entrepreneurs & fantastic mom’s and dad’s, my job is never boring.  

 

RAY WARREN

“After I retired, I was searching for something where I could take my passion for fitness/wellness to help others.  Read this fascinating article in the paper about this unique boxing program that helps people with Parkinson’s so I went out that same day to check it out.  That’s where I met Marylene who was opening the first Rock Steady program here in San Diego…we’ve been working together ever since!” 

 

“Spend 1 day in the gym with our fighters and you realize how impactful this program is not only physically, but emotionally….we are 1 big family!!”
