In March 2016 I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. My wife and I cried and worried what
my future would be like. Our research led me to a Parkinson’s support group where I saw Jeff
Quinn, whom I had worked with in the past. Jeff suggested that I go to Dean Eoannou’s
My first session was in May 2017 and since then my worries have been replaced with the
knowledge that you can fight this disease and have a fulfilling life. Wendy Casey, a world class
boxer has been my coach for most of that time. I retired in July 2021 and 3 months later I
began working part time with clients at Parkinson’s Boxing. I hope my personal experiences
help lessen their worries and that by coaching them using Dean’s methods they will develop
skills to improve their quality of life.
