Q: How is Neural Movement’s training different from other fitness strategies?
A: Our fitness company, Neural Movement, focuses on improving performance, health and mental well-being by training attributes of the nervous system in conjunction with movement. We use a combination of unique equipment and methods to assess the client’s reaction time and provide a roadmap to improving that reaction time while engaging in fitness activities.
Our unique methods are data driven and have been implemented with celebrities such as Javon Walton and Leah McSweeney, professional athletes such as Trevor Williams and Admiral Schofield, children, adults and special population groups.
Our mission is to help our clients reach their true potential, by utilizing a unique training method that is customized specifically towards the client. Training sessions can be performed either at the client’s preferred location or at our facility.
Q: Why is neural movement training important?
A: Neural movement methods focus on improving physical fitness as well as cognitive well-being, resulting in many different benefits. These methods strengthen and build the brain’s connections resulting in faster response time and quicker decision making. Research has shown that this type of training can boost levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a substance essential for the growth of brain cells; improve mental health (depression, anxiety, ADHD, etc.); stimulate neurogenesis—the birth of new neurons; mobilize the expression of genes that are believed to enhance brain plasticity, i.e., the ability of the brain to change its neural pathway; improve self-esteem and self-confidence; weight loss; and overall physical fitness.
