LISTEN: The Brain-Boosting Health Benefits of Exercise

With Ryan Glatt


Exercise has a powerful impact on the health of your brain. While aerobic and resistance training are important for brain health, there is a third category that is less talked about, but extremely valuable. Neuro-motor activity is movement that incorporates both cognitive and physical stimulation. Tune in to learn what neuro-motor activities are and how to incorporate them into your everyday life. We'll also be covering the brain boosting health benefits of exercise in general.

Ryan Glatt has a Master of Science in Applied Neuroscience and a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. He is a personal trainer and brain-health coach with over a decade of experience in the health and fitness industry. He currently works alongside clinicians and researchers to study the effects of cognitively-enhanced and comprehensive exercise plans at the Pacific Brain Health Center in Santa Monica, California.
