“I’m really hooked on boxing and movement being used to combat Parkinson’s. This type of exercise should be strongly recommended by MD’s to their Neuro patients.

My wife has noticed a positive change in attitude since starting the program. I’ve noticed that I’m taking on the dreaded motor symptom problems (pain, shaking, muscle locking, poor walking to name a few) with hard work and humor.

Thanks for making exercise for Parkinson’s patients very tough and challenging. We need it. But most of all, thanks for making it FUN.”
