Rock Steady Boxing with Forward and Up Fitness

Rock Steady Boxing with Forward and Up Fitness

East Side has partnered with Kendra Lapointe of Forward and Up Fitness to bring the Virginia Beach community a class for individuals with Parkinson’s disease. Rock Steady Boxing was founded in 2006 by former Indiana Prosecutor, Scott C. Newman, who is living with Parkinson’s.

Intensive exercises, such as boxing activities, have been proven to slow the progression of PD in patients. Kendra focuses on exercises and activities that include calisthenics, stretching, yoga, boxing drills, agility, coordination and cognitive drills.

Kendra holds classes for her Warriors Tuesdays and Thursdays (with more days coming soon!). This is a community based class, so you don’t have to be a member of East Side to join in on the fun.

If you are interested in learning more about our Parkinson’s classes please contact Kendra at kendra4pd@yahoo.com.
