Boxing for Parkinsons

In conjunction with Parkinson’s UK we are able to deliver free boxing for adults with Parkinson’s every Friday for a 45 minute session starting at 2:15pm from the 12th January.

Research has shown high intensity exercise may slow the rate of the Parkinson’s disease’s progression by promoting neural changes in the brain. Boxing in particular has been getting a lot of attention for its potential to help manage the progression of the disease. Our boxing classes are non-combat workouts, meaning you won’t be fighting another person. Classes typically include exercises that help improve hand-eye coordination, agility, speed, endurance, and strength.

Sessions last 45 minutes and are delivered by a qualified boxing coach trained in provision for Parkinson’s sufferers. The gym is fully wheelchair accessible with limited on street parking and great transport links (Camden Town (tube) Camden Road (Overland) and multiple bus routes with the 88, 214 and 134 going past the door). We have all the equipment needed and all participants will be provided with a pair of handwraps to keep.

There is no need to book just turn up at the gym ten minutes before the session or email HawleyOutreach@CamdenBoxingClub.com for more details.
