Parkinson’s Proves to be “Rock Solid” with Rock Steady Boxing at the Michael-Ann Russell JCC!

Rock Steady Boxing, a unique exercise program based on training used by boxing pros, and adapted to people with Parkinson’s disease, will be available in the North Miami Beach area at the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center. The program involves regular exercises, such as stretching, bicycling, running, jump-roping, push-ups, balancing, and lots of non-contact boxing led by experienced trainers/coaches. Rock Steady Boxing serves both men and women of all ages and levels of ability.

"Thanks to the National Parkinson’s Foundation and Moving Day® Miami, we are fortunate to be able to bring this program to North Miami Beach. Rock Steady Boxing at the MAR-JCC is giving the Parkinson's fighter an opportunity to FIGHT BACK against this disease,” said grant recipient Dany Weil, Health and Wellness Director at the MAR-JCC, who successfully completed the Rock Steady Boxing Training Camp, and is certified to offer Rock Steady Boxing training classes. “In partnership with the Herbert Kay Chapter of the NPF and with the invaluable support of members of our Community, this grant has enabled us to start classes that address all levels of the PD spectrum, from early onset to those that have been fighting the disease for many years. The support of NPF in the community provides hope through grants like this.” Said Weil. Classes start (date, time, place)

The Rock Steady Boxing Method was developed in Indianapolis over the course of seven years.
In 2012, the Training Camp was launched to share the Rock Steady Boxing Method with other people who are fighting back against Parkinson’s. Today, there are 89 Rock Steady Boxing affiliates in 25 states, and international affiliates in Italy and Canada, initiated by certified Rock Steady Boxing “Coaches.” All completed the requirements of Rock Steady Boxing and have been officially certified.

“We have always believed in the Rock Steady Boxing Method,” said Rock Steady Boxing, Inc. Executive Director Joyce Johnson. “When evidence began to emerge that our program had a very positive impact on the ‘boxers’, our mission became clear -- to share our knowledge and experience with all people with Parkinson’s. That is why we decided to make our training available worldwide -- to train as many as we can, so together we can improve the care of people with Parkinson’s everywhere.”

Rock Steady Boxing, Inc., a non-profit organization, was founded in Indianapolis in 2006 with six participants. Participation has steadily increased to more than 155 members today, including men and women ranging in age from 35 to 90. Classes are geared to people at all stages of Parkinson’s disease. Multiple volunteers contribute their time and talents to assist with the classes. It is estimated that 1-1.5 million Americans have Parkinson’s disease, with as many as 40,000 diagnosed in Miami-Dade. Additional information about Rock Steady Boxing Inc. and Parkinson’s disease is available at
