You’re helping your clients slow physical decline, but what about increasing their cognitive reserve at the same time? “Brain-training” and cognitive stimulation are becoming mainstream, bringing with it ripe opportunities for slowing cognitive decline, but also breeding snake-oil solutions. Luckily, emerging evidence is showing promise for cognitively-enhanced physical activity, ideally in combination with other lifestyle modifications. Discover simple yet powerful techniques for combining exercise with cognitive stimulus simultaneously, and begin to see domains of cognition as a programmatic outcome, similar to weight loss or hypertrophy. Learn the difference between simultaneous, consecutive, and isolated cognitive-physical training, and how best to program brain-health strategies for your clients.
