Brain Fitness Coming to Senior Exercise Classes
Date:1/14/2009

anie Clark said, "Because brain health affects overall health, cognitive fitness activity is essential to comprehensive senior fitness programming. Our system does not involve installing brain fitness computers in health clubs. Instead, it integrates mental exercise into the participants' physical activity sessions. One example is the use of mental imagery during cool-down exercises to sharpen seniors' focus and attention skills."

Since 1992, SFA has set the standard in senior-specific fitness education, recently earning the 2009 National Council on Aging Health Promotion Institute's Best Practice Award for their educational programs. Expert peer review comments on Brain Fitness for Older Adults include "scientifically supported," "outstanding," "the most comprehensive study I've seen," and "I would recommend this to anyone who works with the senior population." The study package provides two textbooks, an educational DVD, a manual of brain fitness activity plans, and a CD-ROM of client handouts for each activity. The enrollment cost is $249.
