Neurofighters enables people with Neurological Conditions, like Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, MS, etc., to fight their disease by providing non-contact boxing style fitness programs to improve their quality of life, sense of efficacy and self-worth. Recent studies also suggest that intense exercise may be “neuro-protective'', actually working to delay the progression of symptoms. Neuroboxing provides encouragement through a “tough-love” approach, inspiring maximum effort, speed, strength , balance and flexibility. Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. Neuroboxing classes have proved that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier/happier life.
