Published medical research has shown that forced, intense exercise can reduce, reverse and delay Parkinson’s symptoms, and (according to a study done by ESPN) boxing is one of the most physically demanding styles of training. Parkinson’s causes a loss in many of the same elements that boxers condition to improve: agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, balance, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength. In addition, boxing is a great stress reliever, confidence booster and, above all, is great fun!
