Rock Steady Boxing
The mission of Rock Steady Boxing is to “empower people with Parkinson's to fight back.”
Sweat Therapy Fitness is an official Rock Steady Boxing Affiliate certified in the "Rock Steady Method," designed to improve quality of life through non-contact boxing based fitness classes.
Why Parkinson's and boxing? Research shows that rigorous exercise may slow the progression of Parkinson's symptoms and improve the ability to perform activities of daily living. Rock Steady Boxing classes emphasize gross motor movement, balance, core strength and rhythm to favorably impact range of motion, flexibility, posture, gait and mood.
While many organizations focus on finding a cure, Rock Steady Boxing helps the more than 1 million Americans currently living with Parkinson's Disease fight back against their biggest opponents - deterioration of motor skills, balance, speech and sensory function.
Rock Steady Boxing classes are currently offered by appointment only at the Sweat Therapy Fitness Midtown at the below times.

Rock Steady Boxing Testimonials
Glenda, Current Rock Steady Boxer:
"I am new to Rock steady boxing class with Brian and Kim having come to four classes so far. I love every moment of the class. I have never been around more positive people than Brian and Kim and quite frankly the entire class. I have some very specific goals. I walk with a walker as I've had three back surgeries within the past two years as well as being diagnosed with Parkinson's during that time. My first goal is to be able to walk independently as well as regain some of my fine motor skills. I love the fact that Kim and Brian love a challenge."
Since Sweat Therapy Fitness opened our doors in April 2010 we have supported numerous Tallahassee non-profit organizations, raising more than $200,000. Much of this money was donated to local Parkinson's charities that support research and improve quality of life for those living with PD.
