    Boxing is a noncontact exercise program aimed at alleviating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Boxing requires a combination of endurance, strength, power, speed, agility, flexibility, hand-eye coordination, and aerobic training — all of which are useful for people with Parkinson’s. Boxing classes are done in a group setting to promote camaraderie and support, as well as to maintain long-term participation in a high-intensity workout program.

    Boxing classes are divided into different levels based upon each person’s unique Parkinson’s symptoms and overall level of fitness. We require all potential boxers to complete an assessment with one of our coaches to determine the class placement that would be of greatest benefit to them.

    The fee is $30 for a six-week session. Boxing is not included in the MAPC monthly pass.
