EPRD starts boxing class for people with Parkinson's disease

As “Eye of the Tiger” blasted through the speakers, four boxers and their instructors marched in place. The floorboards of the rec center studio trembled under the strength and determination in their strides.

At the end of their warm-ups, they worked the bags — first the heavy bags, then the speed bags. After that, two boxers did abdominal workouts and stretches on the floor, while the other two stacked and unstacked cups.

A little unorthodox, perhaps, for a boxing class.
