Meet Gretchen Westgaard

Fighting Parkinson's in Orange CountyOrange County local, Gretchen Westgaard,  started her career in the fitness industry as a Pilates instructor.  When her mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, it seemed only natural that she would jump into the world of fitness for people with Parkinson's. After working with Ann Adams at Rock Steady Boxing Southern California, Gretchen decided to open her own Rock Steady affiliate.  She quickly got certified as a Rock Steady Boxing Coach and has been the owner of Rock Steady Boxing South OC for over four years.

RSB South OC classes are a blend of boxing,  cardio exercises, strength training and stretching. The class activities are designed to help improve balance, cognition, flexibility, vocal strength and even dexterity.   If you watch one of Gretchen's classes, you will not only notice the hard work but the laughter and smiles can not be ignored.

"Rock Steady South OC is a big family.  We laugh with each other and sometimes cry with each other but at the end of the day, we are there to support each other." You can reach Gretchen at southoc@rsbaffiliate.com
