Here are the 3 main takeaways:

1. Physical exercises not only improve our physical fitness but also our brain fitness and mental performance. Physical exercises have been associated with increased growth of, as well as improved connectivity among brain cells, leading to better memory, focus and learning.
  

2. Different types of exercises offer different mental benefits. Aerobic exercises can give an immediate mental boost in terms of focus and alertness, while sensory-motor exercises can improve motor efficiency and enhance attention stamina. Exercises with more complex movement patterns can improve sequencing and overall planning abilties.        

3. Using the 5+3=8 power formula (5 brain pillars + 3 proven methods = 8+ cognitive benefits), BrainFit incorporates specially-designed physical exercises that elevate mental performance such as improved processing speed, cognitive flexibility, sequencing and planning. You can see improvements in learning speed, handwriting and work accuracy, to name a few.
