Tai Chi

Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient form of martial arts, practiced today primarily for its health benefits. Its origins are shrouded in myth and legend, but there are references to Tai Chi in some form as long as 5,000 years ago. Although Tai Chi is a powerful martial art with significant application toward fighting, it is also practiced because of the profound health benefits that it imparts. It is adaptable to any age or level of fitness. The benefits come through many repetitions and slow, deliberate practice. This presents a unique challenge in our society which values speed and multi-tasking. The focus on breathing and coordinating the movement with the breath reinforces the mind-body connection, which lowers stress levels and positively impacts the immune system. Private, duet, and trio sessions are also available upon request.

Rock Steady Boxing

Rock Steady Boxing gives people with Parkinson's disease hope by improving their quality of life through a non-contact boxing based fitness curriculum.

Exercises are largely adapted from boxing drills. Boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength to defend against and overcome opponents. At RSB, Parkinson's disease is the opponent. Exercises vary in purpose and form but share one common trait: they are rigorous and intended to extend the perceived capabilities of the participant.

Parkinson's clients attest, and academic institutions, such as University of Indianapolis and Butler University, are reporting and documenting the improved quality of life among Rock Steady boxers. Discovery of a cure may be many years away but in the last seven years, there is evidence that progress is made in all stages of the disease by those participating in the RSB program.

Call today (417-865-0500) to schedule an appointment to visit the gym, speak privately with a Coach, or watch a class in action. Please consult your physician before starting any exercise program.

Rock Steady Boxing Assessment

Each Parkinson's client's journey with Rock Steady Boxing will start with a physical assessment. A certified Rock Steady coach will work with you to determine the correct level of classes, as well as track changes in scores over 6 month intervals. Gloves and wraps can be purchased at the time of the assessment, if the participant would like their own equipment. The assessment will take one and a half hours.
Assessment - $55

Rock Steady Boxing Group Classes

In addition to exercise, Rock Steady encourages the "Fun Factor!" Throughout our history, RSB has developed games, traditions, and activities that promote FUN, keeping the morale high and the boxers looking forward to each class. Along with the boxing-style workout, it's not uncommon to play with toys, footballs, basketballs and have a good time in our classes. Our Coaches are constantly weaving in creative and entertaining ways to combat a multitude of Parkinson's symptoms. Our classes encourage intense exercise and functional fitness, as well as emotional and social support, which is vital to the well-being of people with Parkinson's.
Single Drop-in Class - $18
5-Pack of Classes - $75
