BOXING 4 HEALTH Had an amazing opportunity to be part of a mini documentary series with Journalism students from Carleton u!
Boxing 4 Health started in May of 2016 in the owners garage.
Our boxing fitness classes started in early June out of Christine's home and we all enjoyed our time there, 8 weeks to be exact! But we decided to take the leap and move into a more accessible and larger space to accomodate more people and continue to provide a safe and effective workout space.
Boxing 4 Health Inc continues to grow and we now have our programs running in 3 locations Ottawa, Kanata and Smiths Falls. There are over 10,000+ people living with Parkinson's here in Ottawa
Christine Seaby RMT, RHN OWNER
As a Registered Massage Therapist for over 14 years Christine Seaby founder of B4H was looking for a way to help her clients with Parkinson's disease live a better quality of life. Combined with her professional experience she had also trained in mixed martial arts and believed she could put a strong program together for people with Parkinson's disease to benefit from. She invited a long time friend Jessica Lafond to join her as she had many years of mixed martial arts training.
Christine hopes to continue to grow and help as many people as possible so we can slow down the progression of Parkinson's and help people enjoy a better quality of life.
"I would describe the program as "Life-changing” it’s a magnificent opportunity to take charge of your physical health and your life…to be proactive instead of reactive. I’ve benefited from increased energy and a renewed sense of hope".
"My mental acuity has improved. I'm sharper. I feel more alive. As well, my social outlook and interaction has improved. I enjoy being with people again. And I attribute all these changes
to my workouts at the gym."
Doug "The Marauder" Merriam
"Since joining the Boxing 4Health gym, I have experienced greater energy and flexibility and my balance has improved. The exercises are fun, and the routine is varied so it doesn’t get boring.
But make no mistake, this is more than an exercise class, it is a very special place where participants also receive encouragement, support and camaraderie. The music is great too!"
