Brain Fitness 101

These five elements that may boost your brain aren't a secret. Our individual coaching and group workshops bring these elements to life in a way that will best help you achieve your goals.


Physical exercise keeps your body fit, and your mind, too! A small amount may boost your brain.


The mental challeng of brain games are great, but be sure to look for ones that will specifically target your challenge and goal areas.


Stress can have serious negative effects on brain health. Seek out your inner zen with techniques to reduce stress. Mindfulness training is a great and easy way to start.


Engaging with other people gives your brain a chance to react to new situations and topics. Get out there and engage with friends and family.


You are what you eat. Start by taking small steps to a healthier diet. The diet that may best help you achieve your goals will depend on your unique situation.

Why Coaching?

Much like a physical fitness, a personal brain fitness coach helps translate and optimize scientific research into an actionable plan.

Get Started

The ideal brain fitness plans incorporate all five of these elements. We only recommend elements that have been associated with cognitive improvement in the scientific literature.
