If you didn’t find exactly what you’re looking for in the classes above, why not make up your own? Each “Q Class” provides a solid base of cardio training, but where you go from there is up to you – and your group – to decide. It’s fitness by committee. You say your bowling buddies want to add Yoga? Your Bridge group prefers plyometrics? Maybe your Civil War reenactment crew would like to begin their very own Reconstruction. Just tell us what you want, and we’ll make it happen!’
Rock Steady Boxing for Parkinson’s
Rock Steady Boxing was the brainchild of Scott Newman of Indiana who, after diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) took up boxing training and discovered he moved and felt better. At STEPS Fitness we have had many clients present with neurodegenerative diseases such as PD and Multiple Sclerosis and post-stroke syndromes. The one-on-one attention in an environment oriented to the needs and concerns of all levels of clientele, where safety is the primary interest, people with these diseases were assured that their needs and capabilities would be properly attended.
It was Colleen Bridges who, working with one and then a couple more PD clients, took it upon herself to learn the fundamentals of boxing from Dr. Irv and Scott Kinney, both black belts in Tae Kwon Do, before getting certified in Rock Steady Boxing. She now runs several classes a week at STEPS with the assistance of a team of ‘corner men’ and women to ensure safety and provide assistance with and during the intense workouts which have received substantial support in the medical literature.
