What Can I Expect If I Join A Brain Fitness Academy?
• The same group meets together two days each week for four hours each day; this lasts for 14 weeks. Then there is a couple of weeks break and you may want to continue. There are three of these 14-week ‘semesters’ each year. We match the academic calendar so we can enjoy the good ideas and interesting programs of our local colleges/universities.
• Each day is a little different in order to support the concept that novelty and new activities enhance brain stimulation.
• Some examples of activities utilized in the program include word games, creative writing, topic discussions, logic puzzles, walking, mathematical puzzles, music trivia, drawing, history discussions, and stretch and balance exercises.
• There is a mixture of activities that “exercise” both the mind and the body.
• The flow of each day includes opportunities for socialization and enjoyment. And we laugh!
• Members of the clubs really enjoy and appreciate each other.
