The mission of Rock Steady Boxing is to maximize the mental, emotional, and physical potential of people with Parkinson's Disease throughout their entire lives. It is an intensive and rigorous regimen and plan of exercises, brain games, voice training, stretching and strengthening exercises that has been designed specifically for people with Parkinson's Disease. This is a non–contact boxing program founded in 2006. Rock Steady Boxing-Wilmington at Neuro Fitness Therapy has certified RSB coaches who happen to be Physical Therapists. PWP are first evaluated and then placed in a boxing class based on their abilities. We are currently running 6 classes per week.
Educating the person with Parkinson's Disease and their family members are an essential component of Dr. Kogon's overall rehabilitation plan. The science behind the rehabilitation is discussed along as well as a customized work book for each client. The workbook includes basic theory, latest exercise standards and customized charting to track progress. Dr. Kogon also educates the community through guest speaking at support group meetings and other regional gatherings.
