stop-PD has had an enormous positive impact upon my wellbeing. Coming into a class with such positive energy from all of our fighters is always energizing, no matter how tired I am (and say I don’t want to come to class) by the time its over, I feel renewed “is the class over already?”
For me, it’s the mental aspect. The bonding and sharing of our struggles, the support and friendships, the resolve they show — it all strengthens me — it’s the fighter’s attitude that keeps me going.
As we all know PD is a progressive disease. We have an obligation to ourselves & our loved ones to do whatever is possible to abate the progression. USE IT OR LOSE IT!!!
While glancing at CBS’s website in November of 2015, a story by Leslie Stahl of 60 Minutes caught the corner of my eye. I clicked on it & BAM! My life has never been the same! After every session I simultaneously feel dead & refreshed.
We are not a group of boxers, we are a group of friends who happen to go to boxing together.
