Punching Out Parkinson's

POP Santa Fe

The goal of Punching Out Parkinson's is to empower people living with Parkinson's disease to maintain and improve their quality of life through exercise and community support. We aim to hit that goal everyday, constantly striving to enrich the lives of our Boxers, and everyone in the PD community of northern New Mexico.

Recent testimonials:

I’m happy to say that I was in the first RSB Santa Fe class! It continues to be just what my body wants/needs in a workout. Knowledgeable coaches push me to work hard and always challenge my body and mind. Really though - it’s the friends I have made and the fun we have that keeps me coming back. A workout is a workout, POP Santa Fe is love that kicks your butt.

What a resource we have in our community! Punching Out Parkinson’s Santa Fe has undoubtedly developed into an inclusive community for which I’m truly grateful. From the kick-butt exercise programs, to a boxing sequencing coordination program, to the thoughtful brain teasers - the informed nature and dedication of our coaches and volunteers shines brightly! We are truly blessed. Trying to stay a few steps ahead of Parkinson’s is hard enough; I hate to think of where I’d be without this resource!

POP Santa Fe, RSB and PWR classes, and PDClubhouse not only introduced me to a whole new physical regimen with mind-boggling punch combinations and challenging brain calisthenics (the best way to slow the progress of Parkinson's) but also added a roster of thoughtful pals to the cohort of people I care about.
