Jodi first heard about Rock Steady Boxing through a group email that a family member stumbled upon. She watched a news clip from another affiliate and was amazed and so excited. Her dad has been diagnosed with Parkinson's for over 7 years now and is still doing pretty good, but she have never felt like she was able to understand what it was like for him, and never really understood the magnitude of the disease. Donovan and Jodi immediately signed up for the training camp in Indiana, and figured they would just check it out and see what they could learn. They both learned so much more than they could have imagined, and were immediately hooked! Donovan and Jodi are very ambitious, and constantly strive to learn more and challenge themselves, so they knew that they wanted to put as much energy into learning everything they could to be the best coaches possible. Fitness has been a big part of their lives in and boxing is something they both have always loved to do, so they have worked vigorously at gaining the proper knowledge and experience to teach their fighters.
Both Donovan and Jodi are Certified Rock Steady Boxing coach as well as having their Personal Training Certifications with ACE, PWR Moves Certified Trainers for Parkinson's specific exercises, and Level 1 and Level 2 Boxing Training through the Box n' Burn Academy. Donovan is also a licensed Massage Therapist and specializes in helping people with Parkinson's work on mobility and postural issues. Of course they are never done, and can't wait to continue to learn and teach and hopefully make a difference in our fighters lives. Jodi is thrilled to say that she convinced her dad to sign up for a local Rock Steady program in Minneapolis, and he is loving it!
