The History of Rock Steady Boxing
Rock Steady Boxing is a nonprofit that was founded by Scott C. Newman, a former Indiana prosecutor, in 2006. Newman, who is living with Parkinson’s, started noticing great improvements to his overall health after participating in this high energy workout. As word started to get out about this new and exciting program, the demand started to increase. Now people living with Parkinson’s are finding hope through this fun and energetic workout program. We offer Parkinson’s boxing training classes here at Evolve for people at any skill level.
