The Palms of Largo campus offers several programs that help individuals fight back against Parkinson’s disease, including the Tremble Clefs, Rock Steady Boxing, and support groups. We are grateful to offer these opportunities, which may benefit varying stages of Parkinson’s, lessen symptoms and lead to a healthier life.
Rock Steady Boxing – The Palms of Largo, an affiliate program of Rock Steady Boxing, Inc., enables individuals with Parkinson’s disease to fight their disease by providing non-contact boxing-style fitness programs that are designed to improve their quality-of-life and sense of efficacy and self-worth.
Recent studies also suggest that intense exercise programs may be “neuro-protective,” actually working to delay the progression of symptoms. Rock Steady Boxing provides encouragement by inspiring maximum effort, speed, strength, balance and flexibility. Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. Rock Steady Boxing classes may benefit anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, and may actually lessen their symptoms and lead to a healthier, happier life.
Rock Steady Boxing at The Palms of Largo offers different levels of in-person and virtual classes to accommodate varying degrees of Parkinson’s fitness.

The Tremble Clefs is a nationally recognized singing program for those with Parkinson’s disease. This group therapy program addresses voice symptoms, like breathing, volume, pitch, range, stretching, posture, rhythm and movement.
