Rock Steady Boxing Chicago is thrilled to announce the return of in-person boxing! Rock Steady Boxing classes will be offered through Movement Revolution, under the direction of Eric Johnson and his team of Neuro Exercise Specialists. Eric has worked with people with Parkinson’s for 12 years, five of which he spent at the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab where he worked with physical therapists and developed several PD programs. He founded Movement Revolution 7 years ago to provide better access to evidence-based community exercise programs for PWP. He then started Rock Steady Windy City a year later and has helped over 800 PWP find their way to living stronger with PD. Eric has established a team of highly experienced and qualified coaches to help re-start and grow our Rock Steady community in Glen Ellyn and Elgin.
All boxers will need to schedule an assessment before returning to boxing. All assessments will take place in Glen Ellyn. Each assessment will take approximately 1 - 1.5 hours. It includes a gait analysis, two balance screenings, upper and lower body strength, and a goal setting discussion. Current RSBC boxers will receive this assessment free of charge. Assessment will determine which class is appropriate. Class times will be dependent upon how many boxers we have, but the plan is to still offer the same number of classes throughout the week. The schedule will be clearly communicated by Eric and his team once assessments have started.
