RSB Rocktown in the News:
Since 2018, Edge Effect Fitness has hosted Harrisonburg's Rock Steady Boxing program. RSB is a boxing-based fitness program designed for people with Parkinson's Disease. Our mission is to empower people with Parkinson’s disease to fight back.
Why boxing? Boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength. These are the very motor functions that PD targets, and the combination of exertion and motor skills is an effective way to slow, prevent and even reverse PD's symptoms.
12 years worth of academic studies and boxer's observations
document the improved quality of life among RSB boxers. Discovery of a cure may be many years away but in the last seven years, but RSB remains to be the single best treatment for PD.
