Welcome to My Personal Page
This year, I am excited to share with you news about the Rock Steady program that has been sweeping the nation. The Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) program was founded in Indianapolis in 2006 by a man named Scott C. Newman. Scott C. Newman also has Parkinson’s disease. Rock Steady Boxing has been shown to improve the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s disease through a non-contact based boxing fitness curriculum. There are now more than17 affiliates in US alone including two in Nashville. The classes are led by and instructor who has been trained and certified in The Rock Steady Program.
I have loved participating in the Rock Steady Boxing program here in Nashville. It does make a difference to be able to interact with others who understand the difficulties you might face on any given day. Some days you may be the one needing encouragement and other days you are there to encourage others.
I am so thankful to be able to participate in this program. It has made a big difference in my life.
Thank you for your continued support.
