What our fighters are saying:


Rock Steady Boxing is the best thing I have done for myself since diagnosis.

Tom S.


I started at RSB South OC within a couple of weeks of my diagnosis.  I had never boxed and was not a fighter.  Parksinson’s not only took its toll on my body but it also robbed me of my confidence.  Fast forward two years and I am stronger and healthier than I have ever been.  Rock Steady empowered me, strengthened my mind, body and spirit, and the members have become family.   I don’t know what I would do without Gretchen, Ali  and their merry band of fighters!

It is great to be with people who share your condition and are working to improve their lifestyle.  Gretchen is committed and caring.  She is willing to try new things and push the group to improve.

I am stronger, happier, and have better balance.  My family is so happy I found this program.  The social aspect is the most important and boxing is so much fun with my new friends.

Very important to be in an environment where others understand your condition.  Good physical workout and social interaction.  It provides hope for holding PD at bay.
