Boxing techniques, balance and core strength training.
Kickin Parkinson's' is always looking for ways to support our local PD patients & families and are pleased to announce a partnership with Chet & Christina Barnett of Krav Maga Institute to form the KICKIN PARKINSON's "KO BOXING FITNESS PROGRAM"
The classes are held at Chadwick Minge's The Dojo @ 201 N. Columbia, St in Old Town Covington.
The program utilizes a variety of training methods to address the primary challenges facing PD patients:
Improves Agility, Balance & Coordination
Fights muscle wasting & improves walking ability
Increases work capacity & Improves soft voice syndrome
Fights stiffness, Improves Flexibility & Range of Motion
Benefits of a 2 year study:
Symptoms may be in some cases improved
Creates positive changes in the brain
Generates renewed growth of brain cells damaged by the disease
Creates enhanced uptake of dopamine in the brain which can improve growth of neurons
Kickin Parkinson's' financially supports these classes for people living with Parkinson's disease.
