Here's what the expert reviewers are saying:

  • "Outstanding! This course ties together, in a scientifically supported manner, the aspects of physical and mental learning that can occur when fitness training is properly applied -- both for the beginning and experienced trainer."
  • "Awesome program for my seniors. I would recommend this to anyone who works with the senior population. Well worth the time and effort. Thank you!"
  • "I have had an interest in cognitive training for quite some time and have been studying various materials on the subject. This was definitely the most comprehensive study I have seen. This is a very impressive course, concentrating on the scientific aspects of the brain and relating the information to a program in cognitive fitness. I appreciate the fact that it was not over-simplified. The CD-ROM with all the handouts is excellent and I will be using all of them. I highly recommend this course."
