Rock Steady Boxing at Belmars
Origin of Rock Steady Boxing
Formed in 2006, Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) is a nonprofit organization supported by private donations. It is the brainchild of former Indiana prosecutor, Scott C. Newman - himself diagnosed with early-onset PD at age 41. In his search for a personal exercise program that
met his health needs, Newman found that boxing improved his agility, daily functioning, and physical health.
The discovery led him to establish a small gym and boxing ring in Indianapolis. With the help of former world champion/professional boxer Kristy Rose Follmar, RSB grew from its inception to be a network of more than 150 gyms nationwide today. Says Newman, "Not only does our training offer targeted workshops geared to PD, it's also lots of fun and a way to form friendships."
The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation estimates there are more than 1 million people in the United States diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and more than 60,000 people are diagnosed each year. Rock Steady Boxing is the first gym in the country dedicated to the fight against Parkinson’s.
