PUNCH WITH PURPOSE!
Bullz Boxing Club is proud to offer Rock Steady Boxing. Train with a professional boxer in a genuine boxing gym! We are located inside The Legacy Center at 925 N Lapeer Rd, Oxford 48371. Classes taught by Bull, Maria and Julie - all Rock Steady Certified coaches with assistance from other qualified individuals.
Rock Steady Boxing, a unique NON CONTACT exercise program, based on training used by boxing pros and adapted to people with Parkinson’s disease. The program involves regular exercises, such as stretching, running, jumping rope, 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.
This full-body workout, tests balance, agility and hand-eye coordination, all of which can be affected by Parkinson's. It also can build muscle strength, potentially help speech (some say grunting or yelling while punching aids with vocal projection) and even offer an outlet for frustration toward symptoms or disease. Plus, Rock Steady promotes friendship and community, reminding participants that they're all “fighting together against Parkinson's.”
Like many types of exercise, boxing can ease a range of PD symptoms. Research suggests, however, that it might be doing even more. A 2011 study in the journal Physical Therapy showed improvements in walking, balance, performance of daily activities and quality of life in people who boxed regularly.
Assessments MUST be performed by us at our location prior to beginning any classes to determine class placement. We offer a beginner assessment package for $100 that includes a gear bag, professional boxing gloves, speed wraps and a t-shirt in addition to the assessment.
If you are transferring from another location and have gloves and wraps, the assessment alone will be $50.
