18 Sep Rock Steady Boxing coming to Easton Y
“The Easton Family YMCA, partnering with the Maryland Association for Parkinson’s Support (MAPS) and Bayleigh Chase, has brought Rock Steady Boxing at the Y’s Washington Street location.
“The program has started but still has openings from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
“Instructor Lyn Sutton embarked on learning exercise programs designed for people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, becoming nationally certified in Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) and Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery (PWR) in 2017.
“Sutton is the affiliate owner of Rock Steady-Mid Shore in Grasonville. ‘I am thrilled to be expanding the Rock Steady Boxing program at the Y@Washington Street facility for advanced Parkinson’s clients,’ Sutton said. “We have found great results with this program in Grasonville over the past year and know that our new boxers in Easton will enjoy this incredible program.”
“Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative movement disease that affects large and fine motor skills, speech, and sensory function.
“‘Rock Steady provides not only a boxing exercise regimen but we also incorporate other functional movements throughout the class that will help with everyday quality of life while battling the disease,’ Sutton said ‘The YMCA has provided a great location and set-up for our new boxers that will (not only) build camaraderie for the participants but (for) their care partners (as well).’”
