Barb Kelly

Coach Barb has always had a passion for helping others, which is why she chose to be a physical therapist more than 40 years ago.  After working in her dream occupation, she was inspired by Leslie Stahl’s segment on 60 Minutes about her husband fighting back against Parkinson’s with a program called Rock Steady Boxing.  This program became her mission.  It led to attaining certification as a Rock Steady Coach, as well as earning… 

certifications as an LSVT BIG Therapist, LSVT BIG for Life Therapist, and PWR!Moves Therapist, which are specific to the treatment of Parkinson’s.Coach Barb is also a Geriatric Certified Specialist with the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.  Seeing the lack of skilled community programs for people with Parkinson’s led her to opening RSB@Hillsborough.  She is grateful daily for the opportunity to work with such inspiring people, both her fighters and all the people who support them (volunteers and care partners).  In her free time, she enjoys hiking, biking, traveling with her husband Sam, and spending time with her family and friends.

Kelsey Hyde

I am beyond excited to be able to start my experience as a Rock Steady Boxing Coach!” 

  1. After graduating with a BS in kinesiology from Penn State University this fall, Kelsey wanted to find something that she could be involved in throughout her year off from school. She heard about RSB through a friend at Penn of the coaches.

State who spoke so highly of the program. She fell in love with the RSB mission and knew she wanted to be involved as much as she could. She feels that every boxer in the class brings such joy and she couldn’t be happier to begin her journey as one
