Classes are held at SPARTC, a performance and recovery training facility in Aberdeen, NC created to provide the next level in training.

🌈Totally switched it up with both classes today. After boxing, instead of a circuit, we did a group MEGADOSE of amplitude training. We followed it up with our fav Kirtan Kriya meditation so that the boxers who don’t come to Sunday class could vibe with us. 🌈 Inspired as always watching this crew kick 🍑 and then reclaim their calm. Remember, we’re all in this together! ❤️🧠🌈🥊🧘🏼‍♀️ #parkinsons #neuropt #integrativemedicine #brainhealth #makethatdopamine #amplitude #meditation #supportgroup #community #weareallinthistogether #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

🔥For the last year, whenever Tina comes on, the boxers really crank up the intensity... and the comedy!😂 LEGS ON🔥🔥🔥! 🧠🔥🦵🏼❤️😂 #parkinsons #neuropt #brainhealth #quickfeet #legday #tinaturner #welaughalot #groupworkout #supportgroup #community #weareallinthistogether #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠”S T R O O P S T R I K E S”🧠 Had some serious brain-challenging fun with everyone back together after the holiday! We typically use Stroop cards on the floor and step to them. Today we taped them to the wall for a bit of trunk rotation, weight shifting, balance and STRIKING! 🧠If you have never done a Stroop test, the words and the ink color on the cards are incongruent (i.e. the card says “blue” but it’s written in red ink). You and your partner decide the rule (find either the word that’s called out or the ink color that’s called out) and stick with that rule for a bit, then swap it for the other rule, and repeat. 🧠This was a good brain game for both the striker and the caller! Love that this crew nerds out about this stuff almost as much as I do! 🤓Welcome back, dear ones! 🧠❤️🔥🥊 #parkinsons #neuropt #amplitude #balance #voiceactivation #cognition #strooptest #boomwhackers #welaughalot #partnerworkout #community #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarina

🇺🇸Took a few days off to celebrate Independence Day, and to cheer on USA Soccer. Right before break, Red Team went out with a bang with “Patriotic Planks!” 🇺🇸Hope everyone had a great 4th. Now let’s get back to work!!! 🥊🔥🧠❤️🇺🇸 #parkinsons #neuropt #plank #pledgeofallegiance #america #coreworkout #voiceactivation #groupworkout #community #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠Boxing footwork is FANTASTIC for practicing bigger steps, balance, coordination and sequencing. I especially LOVE using it with people with FREEZING of gait or FESTINATING. I’ll often do the footwork drills right next to boxers so they can mirror off me for timing and sequencing. The main cues I give are: 1. Stay in fight stance (feet shoulder width apart with left foot in front for righties) I.e. Don’t let your feet get too close AND 2. “I don’t care how fast you go, make it perfect!” Precision and control over speed for the win! 🧠🥊🦶🏼🔥 #parkinsons #neuropt #boxing #footwork #balance #coordination #cognition #freezingofgait #festinating #precision #efficiency #resilience #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina

🥊Generating some POWER on the punch shield with Coach @zacharyrmullins! 🥊This is a very different skill than combos on focus mitts. Striking hard like this, landing one really great punch, feels incredibly empowering. We make sure this stays in our boxing rotation! 🥊🧠💪🏻🔥@spartcnc #parkinsons #neuropt #boxing #punchshield #power #forceduse #fightskills #fightcoach #empowerment #pinehurst #northcarolina

Always LOVE to see what “TWISTS” our boxers will put on an exercise to make it their own, and often even more therapeutic!!! #broworkout 😂🧠🥊🔥 #parkinsons #neuropt #amplitude #twist #mobility #boomwhackers #partnerworkout #creativity #community #supportgroup #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

🔥Rolling efficiently requires the whole body to help out. Both of these boxers started flying when they got their arms involved with swinging and reaching in addition to legs. 🔥The head and eyes are probably the most overlooked allies in rolling. Turning and looking at your target with your head can really help a roll, and letting it just chill on the mat makes an anchor. 🔥Put a mat on the floor and a target on the wall and get after it! 🔥🧠🥊💪🏻🛏 #parkinsons #neuropt #rolling #bedmobility #amplitude #efficiency #bigthenfast ##rollingonthefloorkicking #expectmore #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠Dynamic Gait w/ Head Turns🧠 Usually I flip the cards and boxers do the head turns and reading. Today we added fine motor, flipping the cards using your more involved hand. This boxer makes it look pretty easy. She even pushed faster head turns (3rd video, below), which is where she can pick up next time! 🧠 TIP: Remember to train BOTH up/down and left/right. UP/DOWN is great for texting while walking, and not being the person who stops to text, blocking the entrance of Harris Teeter in Pinehurst!😂 LEFT/RIGHT is great for checking traffic while crossing the street. 🧠👀🏃🏻‍♀️👍🏼🔥 #parkinsons #neuropt #gait #walking #balance #finemotor #forceduse #dopamine #expectmore #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠We work on bed mobility most classes since these skills are commonly reported by people with PD to be less efficient, even early on. 🧠Here we emphasized a BIG stretch while on back, really reaching overhead with hands and out with feet, and variations of sitting straight up... for three minute rounds!🔥🧠💪🏻🛏❤️ #parkinsons #neuropt #bedmobility #amplitude #efficiency #coreworkout #absonfire #boomwhackers #creativity #dopamine #expectmore #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina

🔥Team Warmup🔥 That power and those voices!!! 🙌🏼 Next time we’ll get Red Team to crank up the volume, too. 📣 Good thing we have strong walls @spartcnc! 🔥🧠🥊💪🏻📣 @zacharyrmullins #parkinsons #neuropt #medball #power #voice #team #groupworkout #dopamine #fitness #community #expectmore #makethatdopamine #pinehurst #northcarolina

🔥Testing out new mini-bands with concurrent sidestep and overhead reach with finger extension. 🔥TIP: The shoulder component is both shoulder flexion (reaching up) and abduction (pushing out into the band). Typically the resistance is at the wrists, but last year our boxers started moving the band down to the hands for emphasizing finger extension (aka BIG hands). Try the wrist and finger versions and see which one you like best! This is a great shoulder warmup!!! 🔥🧠🥊💪🏻🍑 #parkinsons #neuropt #amplitude #miniband #strength #coordination #shoulderworkout #glutesonfire #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠We often use “pyramid counting” for increasing the cognitive challenge during boxing drills. Today we added it to the ski erg: 1-turn-1,2-turn-1,2,3-turn-1,2,3,4-turn... go to 10 and work back down. Remember, to make this activity PD-specific, keep those steps and chops BIG, follow hands with eyes, and keep that voice LOUD! 🧠💪🏻❤️🔥🥊 #parkinsons #neuropt #skierg #amplitude #cognition #creativity #newskill #fitness #braingames #neuroscience #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠A little perturbation training carrying a weighted Bandbell while standing, sidestepping, turning and walking on the balance beam. Such precision! 🧠🏋🏼‍♀️🔥❤️🥊

🧠When your boxers are motivated to hit things, you can sneak in sit to stands, turning, weight shifting, trunk rotation and multi-step sequencing! 😂🧠❤️🥊🔥 #parkinsons #neuropt #amplitude #cognition #sequencing #functionalstrength #balance #boomwhackers #fitness #brainhealth #dopamine #movementdisorder #community #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

😂Wait for it... 867-5309!!!🤣 Always impressed by the creativity and humor in this group! That’s also some pretty slick and quick cognitive sequencing! Happy Friday!!! 😂🧠🥊🔥 @zacharyrmullins #parkinsons #neuropt #cognition #creativity #humor #welaughalot #fitness #braingames #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

🔥BOB got a lot of attention today! He really offers up such great visual and auditory feedback for our boxers re: landing a solid swing! 😂🔥🧠🥊💪🏻 #parkinsons #neuropt #coordination #power #cognition #feedback #fitness #crackofthebat #expectmore #community #pinehurst #northcarolina

🥊F R A M I N G🥊 Red Team practicing framing, maintaining space between you and opponent, and then firing your cross! 🥊In therapeutic terms: Maintaining extended left arm while moving forwards and back in fight stance and then rapidly replacing left hand with right hand on the bag with coordination and power. 🥊Great work boxers, and thanks Coach @zacharyrmullins for giving us a refresher on this skill! 🥊🧠💪🏻🔥 #parkinsons #neuropt #boxing #framing #coordination #power #footwork #aquabag #braingames #fitness #groupworkout #community #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

Perhaps the boxer in green can use this move to dip his beautiful wife on their 30th wedding anniversary today!!! Happy Anniversary, B+L! ❤️🧠🏋🏼‍♀️🥊💪🏻🎉

🏋🏼‍♀️PWR! Moves + Landmine Press Hybrid! 🏋🏼‍♀️ Boxer in orange came up with this remix in class. Love the exploration and creativity! ❤️

🧠K I R T A N • K R I Y A🧠 Ended Sunday class today with this 11 minute Kundalini yoga meditation. Why THIS meditation for people with Parkinsons?
1. Fine motor/coordination
2. Voice activation and breath control
3. Visualization (i.e. visuospatial skills)
4. Multitasking like whoa to do all these at once!
🧠I may have peeked a couple times while we were doing it as a group, and of course, everyone was perfectly in sync and the fine motor was on point!
🧠Not only does this kriya feel amazing, but there is also some fascinating research available on PubMed studying daily practice of the Kirtan Kriya for improving executive function (ie planning, problem solving, etc), telomere length, sleep, stress, quality of life, etc.
🧠Enjoy the rest of your Self-Care Sunday, dear ones! 🧠❤️🧘🏻‍♀️🧘🏼‍♂️👌🏼💫 #parkinsons #neuropt #kundalini #kirtankriya #meditation #finemotor #voice #visuospatial #multitasking #selfcaresunday #parasympathetic #restanddigest #resilience #community #pinehurst #northcarolina

❤️WHAT’S your WHY?❤️ What makes you get out of bed in the morning? What makes you work hard to stay strong, sharp, and energized? Is it to better serve your family? Is it to be a role model for your children or to stay chasing grandchildren? Is it to play golf with friends? Identify your WHY, and let that fuel your drive to exercise and to thrive! ❤️ P.S. When your mom is Wonder Woman (behind her), you learn your strength early! ❤️🧠🥊💪🏻🔥 #parkinsons #boxing #neuropt #motivation #whatsyourwhy #children #family #community #strongwomen #resilience #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠Med Ball Brain Games🧠 More sequencing fun, this time with med ball slams. Combos of up, down, left and right were written on the white board. Nice intensity and loud voice, B! 🔥🧠🥊💪🏻❤️ @spartcnc #parkinsons #neuropt #cognition #sequencing #braingames #fitness #intensity #dopamine #brainhealth #medball #brainandbody #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠”I can workout at the gym, but it’s just not the same as being at class.”🧠 We all benefit from the skilled cues, attention, and motivational “swift kick” of a coach/therapist, as well as working out with friends. These benefits are magnified in people with PD, even when newly diagnosed. Working with a professional who knows how to help you move bigger and push harder will help you get the most out of your brain/body workouts for managing PD. 🧠🥊🔥💪🏻❤️ #parkinsons #neuropt #dopamine #amplitude #brainhealth #fitness #motivation #skierg #community #resilience #expectmore #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina

🔥2.5 minutes later!!!🔥 Next week, add Breath of Fire?🔥🧠💪🏻🥊 #parkinsons #neuropt #coreworkout #wonderwoman #strongwomen #strongasamother #grit #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠L E T ‘ S G E T P H Y S I C A L... & C O G N I T I V E🧠 Sequencing with BIG amplitude PWR! Moves. 🧠A few sequences were on the white board. 🧠Wonder Woman demonstrates both repeating the same combo to get more of a physical workout and then goes through other combos without repeating for more cognitive challenge. 🧠Loud voices and looking at hands (boosts) added to get even more out of those beautiful dopamine-producing circuits! 🧠💪🏻🔥🥊 #parkinsons #neuropt #amplitude #pwrmoves #braingames #cognition #sequencing #dopamine #makethatdopamine #expectmore #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina

🥊S L I P🥊B A G🥊 Working those visuospatial skills. Plus, we all learn better with a little motivation (aka bag flying at your head!). 😂 In all seriousness, our boxers of all levels do very well independently building the amplitude and speed of the slip bag and reflex bag so these drills are both safe and effective... and they keep their hands up!!! 🥊🧠🔥 @zacharyrmullins @spartcnc #parkinsons #boxing #neuropt #slipbag #visuospatial #basalganglia #dopamine #brainhealth #motivation #trainforlife #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠E X P R E S S Y O S E LF !🧠 Incorporating functional movements like rolling, moving in and out of quadruped (hands and knees) and on and off the floor are FANTASTIC ways to work on functional strength and balance! 🧠Keep it interesting and come up with a different variation each time. 🧠Incorporate those BIG amplitude movements, add a med ball, refresh your basketball skills... the creative variations are endless! 🧠 #parkinsons #neuropt #amplitude #floortransfer #functionalstrength #neuroscience #dopamine #fitness #creativity #medball #expectmore #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina

🥊Haven’t practiced this sequence in over a month, but in just a few minutes, this boxer already had greater accuracy and speed than in April! 🥊As someone who has also been on the striking end of this drill, her ability to call her punches while sustaining such a smooth flow is most impressive! 🥊🧠💪🏻🔥 @zacharyrmullins @spartcnc #parkinsons #boxing #neuropt #cognition #braingames #sequencing #amplitude #voice #brainhealth #dopamine #expectmore #pinehurst #northcarolina

🥊Congrats to this boxer who had an especially awesome day! She landed her first front push kick powerful enough to knock BOB over (and then got two more!!!). Love her victory dance, and that her workout partner and husband were there to witness it! 🥊🧠🔥💪🏻❤️ @spartcnc @zacharyrmullins #parkinsons #boxing #neuropt #frontpushkick #kick #power #balance #dopamine #reward #expectmore #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina

🧠B A C K T O B A S I C S🧠 My high school soccer coach used to say “Perfect practice makes perfect.” In people with PD, skilled external cues from a coach/therapist can help to optimize the size of movement for everyday activities, such as walking. 🧠🥊🔥💪🏻🏃🏻 #parkinsons #neuropt #amplitude #walking #gait #armswing #neuroplasticity #dopamine #perfectpractice #expectmore #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina

🥊T A K I N G🥊 C O N T R O L🥊 Faster isn’t always better, especially for anyone with Parkinsons with festinating or freezing. 🥊Front push kicks are one of my favorite ways to help boxers to control their bodies in space. 🥊They must stabilize enough in standing to throw a kick without falling over (APAs like whoa for Neuro nerds 🤓). 🥊Since this stability allows boxers to generate more power in their FPK, their ability to move BOB closer to his tipping point gives great positive reinforcement for their stability! 🥊🧠💪🏻🔥 @spartcnc @zacharyrmullins @centurymartialarts @rock_steady_boxing #parkinsons #boxing #neuropt #frontpushkick #balance #dopamine #fitness #thisissparta #thisisspartc #ingerardbutlersvoice #resilience #trainforlife #pinehurst #northcarolina
