There's Hope

Research from Indianapolis University shows that boxing fitness is effective at halting the progression of Parkinson’s symptoms. When we read the research and saw the successful application of other boxing fitness programs helping Parkinson's sufferers, we felt a moral obligation to develop and offer the Counter Punch program here in Tuolumne County. When you're hit with degenerative Parkinson's Disease, you have two options. You can sit, wait, and let it steal your life or you can fight back...really fight back, with a counter punch.  


We are in your corner and want to provide another extension of community, social support, and real solutions to help you live your life with more control, power and fitness. If you’ve been hit with Parkinson’s disease, counter punch and join the team. Men and women of any age...fight back and have fun doing it with others! This is non-combat training, you will train like a boxer but only hit heavy bags, speed bags, and focus mitts. We also utilize circuit and interval training, body weight strength training, light weight training, and cardio. We make sure you work hard and that you are safe as you work out. 


Boxing fitness can help you...

  • Improve balance

  • Gain better flexibility

  • Improve memory

  • Achieve better motor coordination

  • Improve grip strength

  • Improve your fitness

  • Increase dopamine

  • Lessen symptoms of depression

  • Improve social interaction

  • Increase movement fluidity

  • Increase your fun

  • Improve sleep



My hope is that Well Box Fitness can be a positive asset to you as you fight through Parkinson’s disease. Our classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 10am. If you are ready to get in the ring and fight for improving your life, we’ve got the gloves and the training to help you. Remove that “patient” title and replace it with “warrior”. All potential Counter Punch athletes will be given an interview and assessment and need a release from your health care provider before starting the program. We are looking forward to seeing you at the gym.
