Through our interactions with our students, there is this one question that always comes back: ‘How do I improve my brain’.
This course is our answer to that one question. Because, as much as we would’ve liked to reveal the one magical trick to significantly enhance our brain, it simply doesn’t work that way. As we will see, there is no scientific evidence to back up the claims of brain games and other programs, even though they claim they do.
One of my all time favourite quotes about the brain is from Emmerson Pugh, an American Scientist, who said
“If the human brain were so simple that we could understand it, we would be so simple that we couldn’t.”
I guess, that says it all.
So what are we going to do? What is this course all about?
The two vital elements behind improving our brain are Neurogenesis and Neuroplasticity. Neurogenesis is about the creation of new brain cells. And Neuroplasticity about putting those new brain cells to a good use.
Now what follows is key to everything we will see in this course. You see, depending on our life style choices, we see a huge variation in the rate of neurogenesis. We’re talking 3 to 5 times more new brain cells being created... or not. And again, depending on those life style choices, we will see 60 to 70% of these new brain cells die off... or not.
So basically, the quality of our life has a direct influence on the quality of our brain.
Some choices will boost the creation and wiring of brain cells, and other choices will drastically lower this same creation and wiring.
The place where it all starts is the hippocampus. It’s been known for a long time that the hippocampus is involved in forming new memories, and remembering them. Damage to the hippocampus will lead to cognitive deficits and memory problems. scientists have established this over and over again, with research into injuries and illnesses. Alzheimer for example, massively attacks the hippocampus, with the unfortunate results we know.
But the hippocampus does more than that. It is one of two places in the brain where we keep growing new brain cells during our entire life. Yes, our entire adult life. It doesn’t stop in our early twenties as previously thought. It just goes on, and on, and on ...
Now, for most people, the rate of neurogenesis decreases once they reach age 30 to 35. Sometimes, this decrease is so dramatic that by age 40 the first noticeable mental effects are already observable: We’re talking memory loss, cognitive impairment, anxiety and depression, loss of vitality, and so on.
But this is no fatality. Whatever our age, whatever the current state of our brain, This can change. Our brain can renew itself at any age. And depending on our lifestyle choices, we can increase that neurogenesis rate again.
And that’s exactly what we aim to do with this program.

I liked it as it promoted healthy style of living in a simple and achievable way - movement, novelty, connections, breaks, diet. It balances science and practical daily tips with elegance.
There is a lot of new information and good reminders for things that we possibly already know but don't practise.
This course is very informative and interesting, action steps are clear and concise, the instructors voice is pleasant and clear, the intro to the sections is a little annoying, and I didn't like the emoji clips and the gifs, but that's more of personal preference. Overall I believe it was well worth the money and I am pleased that I got what I paid for.
I am very happy to know everything about my brain and how I can to improve my and my friends and coleagues lives better!!
Excellent presentation; mastery of the subject, clarity and precision; sharp and clear explanations; grateful to have this course; it changed the whole spectrum of life.
I have been looking for information online about brain age and how to improve memory, brain function and ways to reduce the potential for Alzheimers (which runs in my family). This is one of the best sources of information I have found so far that isn't gimmicky or just trying to upsell other products. Very straight forward and well presented. Easy to digest the content and easy to implement next steps. Kudos!
Simply explained though very interesting and full of practical examples. I would recommend it to everybody.
A Short Course & Very Useful because A Fit Brain promotes Learning and Learning is a Life-Long & a Never Ending Process.
I've been needing the info in this course for a long time. Thank you for making this type of study available. :)
Perfeccct! Perfect fit, they pay me dip, I strip this snip and make it lit The top gon' pop and y'all gon trip, y'all know the way I treat my shift The cut is nice I like it bit, I made this beat by freestyling it, Y'all know I dig, catch addy from me, walk up in the club without id. Now you know it's a real review lol
Interesting. The info reinforces many actions I had started practicing the last decade, or so. I’m on the right path.
The lecturer is very enthusiastic and engaging, very well done! Besides, the most important factor that made me purchase this course was that is strongly evidence-based! Thanks a lot for that!
The best class ever! Above my expectations for sure! I loved every bit of this class and the teacher is the best! Knowledgeable and very good in relaying the exact message of the content. Love it! I am definitely recommending many people to take it. I am also taking his other classes which by far found them all useful and worth spending my money. Thank you so much!
Very nice for people interested in effectiveness and productivity or interested in neurogenesis itself.
There is so much to say about this course. Neurogenesis is explained so well both in theory and with practical examples. It covers the entire spectrum of how to improve your brain, and it's done in such a fun and enjoyable way. Gregory is not only an expert in his field, but he is a master educator and truly knows how to engage and to keep your interest piqued for the entire course (with no fluff!). I first took his course on Neuroplasticity and loved it and thought that this course might be repetitive, but on the contrary, it is complimentary to his other courses but definitely in a class of its own. Gregory - thanks!
