"It's thought around 1 in 500 people are affected by Parkinson's disease. Most people with Parkinson's start to develop symptoms when they're over 50, although around 1 in 20 people with the condition first experience symptoms when they're under 40. Men are slightly more likely to get Parkinson's disease than women."- NHS Website
This is why we wanted to start the programme, we want to make a difference to the many individuals living with Parkinson's. If you or someone you know is living with Parkinson's then this programme could really benefit them, with our sessions now being virtual, it's even safer to attend our sessions. Sessions can be enjoyed from a seated or standing position, so it does not matter your physical ability, just come along and have fun!
This programme is solely for people living with Parkinson’s Disease and their carers to engage in a fun, non contact BOX Fitness programme together and socialise with other people living with Parkinson’s in their community. Research proves that intense exercise is helping greatly in delaying the progression of Parkinson’s, other neurological diseases and helping improve daily life.
Our sessions are once a week currently on Zoom for FREE every Thursday 4pm-5pm, We also run a Boxing 4 Dementia (& Alzheimer's) session once a week for FREE on zoom every Wednesday 1.30pm-2.30pm.
This is run in Partnership with The Medway Parkinson's Working Age Group.
If you know someone, or is someone who would like to participate, please email email@example.com and ask for the zoom link.
