Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 5, 2009 -- Lindsay Gaskins, co-founder and CEO of Marbles: The Brain Store, today announced the new Skokie store opening mid-June will introduce the brain-health industry's latest: The NeuroActive Bike, the world's first exerciser that combines cardio workouts with brain workouts. Powered by Brain Center America's (BCA) patent-pending NeuroActive Program, this one-of-a-kind "brain gym" consists of a recumbent stationary bike coupled with an interactive brain-training program displayed on an all-in-one PC screen designed to make brain training fun, easy and effective for people of all ages.
A news conference to announce the store's opening and unveil the bike, along with Marbles' other brain health promoting products takes place at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 17, at the store at 4999 Westfield Old Orchard Center, Suite F-15, Skokie, IL, 60077. The store opens to the public at 10:30am Friday, June 19.
Marbles: The Brain Store offers over 250 products designed to stimulate and strengthen the brain and be useful for Alzheimer's prevention and therapy, including word puzzles, brain teasers, educational games, and brain fitness software, which result in enhanced memory, critical thinking, coordination, visual perception and word skills. Besides the free Brain Health Barometer, the Marbles website offers free brain tips, brain teasers, and other brain training exercises.
"We are proud to feature the NeuroActive Bike and NeuroActive Program at the grand opening of our new store as part of our commitment to offer the best and most advanced brain-health solutions," Gaskins said. "Public awareness of the importance of brain-enhancing products for total mind-body health continues to increase, and we will continue to expand our retail locations and product offerings to meet the growing demand."
BCA's NeuroActive Bike and NeuroActive Program are designed to help all types of people - students, business professionals and seniors - boost their brainpower, keep their brains youthful and help prevent Alzheimer's. As they pedal, NeuroActive Bike users manipulate a wireless mouse to complete the NeuroActive Program, the only brain-fitness software program that uses an advanced artificial intelligence and a series of exercises to train the entire brain and sharpen 16 cognitive functions - more than any other program on the market. The PC- and Mac-compatible NeuroActive Program, which also may be purchased separately from the bike, may be used at home in the office and almost anywhere.
Marbles plans to open another Chicago store this summer. Those outside Chicago may shop the Marbles website, which offers the store's complete inventory as well as a self-assessment of personal risk factors for Alzheimer's disease, a word-list recall and other brain-centric resources.
