Powering Forward
Class Description
Developed by the Brian Grant Foundation, the Powering Forward Boot Camp is based on national research around the benefit of exercise to alleviate Parkinson’s symptoms. For those who desire a high-level workout, this program was developed specifically for you! The Powering Forward Boot Camp focuses on full functional body movements using ropes, TRX, kettle bells, BOSUs, weights and boxing and is taught in an interval/circuit training style to keep participants focused. The classes will encourage brain stimulation, challenge balance and stability and teach proper technique and form – all in an encouraging group setting. Be prepared to SWEAT and have FUN!
