Fresno Programs

PWP Fights Back

At our Fresno facility, we offer two programs to empower people to fight back against disease with a bit of hard work and a heavy dose of fun! Get more information:

What We Offer

Both programs offer:

1. Small class size: We keep our classes limited to ten participants and have two coaches for each class so you can get personalized attention.

2. Exclusive programs: Our Rock Steady Boxing classes are only for PWPs (persons with Parkinson's) and their caregivers. Move Beyond Cancer is only for those in treatment, survivors, and their workout buddy.

3. Camaraderie: When you join our gym, you join the Fresno Fight Family and gain a strong support network. Because our programs are exclusive, you'll build strength, endurance, and flexibility alongside others with similar experiences, facing similar challenges, and who can understand your journey.

4. Individualized programming: While our classes are done as a group, we assess each fighter and include programming to help target areas of weakness.

5. Fun: Our coahces love what they do and spread their enthusiasm to our fighters and caregivers. Though we expect our fighters to work hard, we also expect them to play hard!

6. Hope: Disease can often steal our sense of who we are and make the future seem uncertain. We give our fighters hope by showing them that they have the ability to fight back.

Rock Steady Boxing Fresno

Research shows that people with Parkinson's disease can enhance their quality of life and even build impressive power, strength, flexibility, and speed with exercise! Rock Steady Boxing combines fitness and fun in a dynamic workout that gets results by moving the body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the program. By exercising with coaches who know the ropes, you can fight your way out of the corner and start to feel and function better. Our RSB coaches give heart and hope to our fighters while helping them to build physical, mental, and emotional strength. These classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson's, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier and happier life. Sweat and smile your way to better posture, balance, and mobility alongside fellow PWPs (persons with Parkinson's).

Please note, all participants must complete an assessment prior to taking classes.

Move Beyond Cancer

Exercise has been shown to have many benefits for those affected by cancer, improving outcomes during treatment and decreasing the risk of reoccurence after treatment. Our Move Beyond Cancer program combines a gentle progression through funtional exercises and an uplifting environment to empower those in the cancer community to reclaim their health, happiness, and drive. Whether participants are currently undergoing treatment, have just completed treatment, or completed treatment years ago, this program is designed to help them safely engage in exercise to improve treatment outcomes and prevent recurrence. With guidance from our specially-trained, compassionate instructors, survivors can safely reconnect with their bodies and regain strength, energy, and joy alongside others affected by cancer.

FREE Move Beyond Cancer CLASSES from November 12th to November 26th in celebration of the launch of our cancer-specific fitness program. As an added bonus, we'll waive the initiation fee for fitness assessments scheduled in the month of November - that’s a $140 savings!
