Rock Steady Boxing, (RSB) the first and only boxing program of its kind in the country, was founded in Indianapolis in 2006 by former Marion County Prosecutor, Scott C. Newman, who is living with Parkinson’s. RSB gives people with Parkinson’s disease hope by improving their quality of life through a non-contact boxing based fitness curriculum.
Since 2006 RSB has grown to over 126 affiliates in the US and internationally.
Nearly everyone with Parkinson’s disease can participate and receive benefit from Rock Steady Boxing. Some participants will require a cornerman (caretaker) to assist in each session.
We require all potential boxers to complete a 1 hour assessment with our RSB Certified Trainer and Owner Alec Langstein. This is imperative for us to properly assess how to best tailer our classroom attention to meet the boxer’s particular needs.
There is $100 fee for this assessment with no obligation to join.
Please call or email Alec at (571) 730-8553 / firstname.lastname@example.org to set your appt. today!

We are learning everyday that there are ways in which people with Parkinson’s disease can enhance their daily quality of life and even build impressive power, strength, flexibility and speed! By exercising with Coaches who know the ropes, you can fight your way out of the corner and start to feel and function better.
Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. These classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier/happier life.
“I’ve been coming to RSB for just over a year. I’ve had great improvements in strength, balance and flexibility. I’m in the best shape since high school. On my last visit to my neurologist he indicated the severity of my Parkinsonism was 50% less than it was 6 months earlier.”
“A 2-year study at the University of Indianapolis found that boxers demonstrated significantly better balance and walking function over time…compared to people who chose other forms of exercise. The survey responses also indicated a higher perceived quality of life among the Rock Steady participants.”
