Your Brain on Exercise

Session 267 • Thursday, July 9 • 1:45-3:35pm

Ryan Glatt

Fitness professionals have the opportunity to join allied health professionals in addressing the major epidemic of cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Although exercise has been proven beneficial to brain health and cognitive functioning, the precise exercise prescriptions are not clear to the general public or the health and fitness industries. This session will review the research on how certain exercise modalities can deferentially affect the brain, and provide an initial framework for the assessment and programming of cognitive health within exercise programs.

104 Brain Health Training: Exercise Programming and Techniques

WORKSHOP

Wednesday, July 8, 9:00am–6:00pm (1-hour lunch is on your own)

Ryan Glatt and Cody Sipe, PhD

Exercise programs are often developed in response to goals that pertain to physical adaptations. However, health and fitness professionals are now faced with a new challenge: addressing the epidemic of cognitive decline. Fitness professionals have the opportunity to join allied health professionals in addressing this epidemic of neurodegenerative diseases, such as dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Although exercise has been proven beneficial to brain health and cognitive functioning, precise exercise prescriptions are not clear to the general public nor to the health and fitness industries. Health professionals have not yet been able to develop targeted, effective exercise programs for cognitive and brain health. In addition, fitness professionals have not been educated on techniques around enhancing facilitated exercise sessions with cognitive demands. This preconference session will review the research on how certain modalities of exercise can deferentially affect the brain, provide an initial framework for programming for optimal cognitive health, and demonstrate how to apply cognitive demands to exercise sessions.

Up to 8 CECs. Exact CECs from individual agencies are pending.
