According to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, more than 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease and more than 60,000 Americans are diagnosed each year. Recent medical studies, including one at the Cleveland Clinic, focus on intense “forced” exercise and indicate that certain types of exercise can exert a neuroprotective influence and may actually slow the progression of the chronic, incurable disease. Rock Steady serves participants at all stages of Parkinson’s – from the newly diagnosed to those who have been living with the disease for decades plus.
“Parkinson’s Awareness Month is an opportunity for us to raise awareness about the disease our fighters live with on a daily basis and to reflect on their courageous battle. FYZICAL Fitness in Lake Worth has chosen to host this event that will provide further resources to support the Parkinson’s fight from all angles. Our mission is to inspire and provide hope and better quality of life globally for those who are fighting back against Parkinson’s disease,” said Nick Penizotto, President of Rock Steady Boxing at FYZICAL Fitness.
