Health and 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. Although exercise has been proven to be beneficial to brain health and cognitive functioning, precise exercise prescriptions are not clear to the general public or those in the health and fitness industries. This lack of clarity has led to further confusion and leaves clients, patients, and caregivers wondering if they are doing all that is possible to stave off cognitive decline. This session will review the research on how certain modalities of exercise can differentially affect the brain, and will provide an initial framework for the assessment and programming of cognitive health within exercise programs.
