The DPSC’s Exercise Therapist has completed the specialised training required for certification as a Rock Steady Boxing Coach and affiliate location at the University of Regina.

Each class will be open to maximum 15 participants. Participants in the program will include persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (all stages of disease progression). Participants can register for one or two classes per week and register for the series of classes offered in each session.

 

Initial Assessment

Every person wishing to join the Rock Steady Boxing class will require an initial assessment prior to the class, to ensure the participant is suited to the program and assess the appropriate level they can work at.

Assessments are scheduled through the Dr. Paul Schwann Centre and cost $60 for a 1 hour assessment. Follow-up assessments after training will be optional.

You will not be able to register for classes, until you’ve had an assessment.  If you have not yet been assessed, please have your physician complete the medical clearance form, and fax it to the Dr. Paul Schwann Centre.  We will then contact you to schedule an appointment!
