Learning New Exercises Trains Your Brain and Your Muscles

  Have you heard of neuroplasticity? At this point everyone understands the need for exercise, the health benefits associated, and the risks of our sedentary lives. Most people miss the most important piece of exercise that makes he difference between good exercise and breaking a sweat. Learn how to do something that challenges you.

   Doing something only marginally challenging yields little result for the time invested. Kinda like showing up for work but not getting paid. Learning something now or working on a skill that requires times and practice to master is the only way to train your brain and your muscles. Learning a new skill, movement, anything that challenges balance, coordination, timing, rhythm helps keep your brain strong, agile, and allows you to learn other things more quickly too!

   Your brain is an incredible computer capable of adapting and rewiring itself for improved function from new demands. Challenge yourself with Turkish Getups, weightlifting, gymnastics skills, agility work, and interval training. Keep your mind sharp and your body strong! The harder the challenge, the greater the rewards.

   Our next Best Beginner Program starts February 6th.
