The Parkinson's Exercise and Wellness Center (PEWC) is your partner in the fight against Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Parkinson's Disease and Parkinson's Plus affects all aspects of physical, mental, and emotional life. The Parkinson’s Foundation estimates there are more than one million people in the United States living with Parkinson’s Disease, and more than 60,000 people are diagnosed each year. With so many affected, the urgency of meeting this community’s needs is extreme. This means our work is critical and our impact real. The PEWC is the first facility of its kind in the Kansas City area dedicating all of its resources and time to fighting Parkinson’s Disease with targeted exercise programs, and it is through community support that our center continues to find new ways to reach these goals.

Founded as Rock Steady Boxing: In Your Corner in 2016, our work has grown and guided us toward a clearer path of helping those with PD. In 2019, we became the Parkinson’s Exercise and Wellness Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization led by a board of certified trainers and members with Parkinson’s Disease. In 2020, our nonprofit efforts have only expanded.

Our programs include the internationally practiced Rock Steady Boxing™ program, Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery (PWR! Moves™), Parkinson’s—Art of Expression (PARTE™), Dance, Mat Pilates, and more. Our team is uniquely qualified to train those living with Parkinson’s Disease, and our programs are ever growing.
