Fighting Back with Rock Steady Boxing at AHFC

Anderson Health & Fitness Center is a certified Rock Steady Boxing affiliate in Meridian, Mississippi


What is Rock Steady, you ask? Rock Steady is a group exercise class designed specifically for those diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Studies show boxing helps improve the quality of life of those living with Parkinson’s disease. It also helps slow the progression of the disease. Don’t forget that exercising releases those happy hormones! This 1-hour class focuses on verbal and memory exercises, coordination, core work, cardio, mobility and weight training. We even go over how to help yourself if you happen to fall.


One of the best aspects of this class is the social element. You will be working side-by-side with others who are dealing with the same diagnosis. You will have trainers there to encourage and challenge you along the way.


We have created a new Facebook Page so others can see what we are doing, but also for our members to encourage each other. We look forward to sharing Rock Steady updates with you!
