Description

As we age, the brain atrophies with disuse as do muscles. Alzheimer’s and dementia are just two conditions of the brain that can have debilitating effects; not only for individuals, but for their families as well. Much of the current research states that exercise can help to ward off these diseases.

This is a live recorded session from the 2009 IDEA Fitness Fusion Conference™

    This video contains new, fun ideas for adding something extra to my senior group fitness classes. I have used Shari's ideas in class; they are fun AND beneficial to participants. Thank you. A great marriage of brain and physical training ideas.

    This seminar was informative and creative. Of course exercise stimulates the brain-but these drills and concepts take it a step further. I will definitely use this info with my older clients.
