Did you know you can train your body and brain at the same time? In this rather stressful and fast-paced society, I get both mentally and physically exhausted frequently. Usually, I only work out by going to fitness gyms and doing outdoor sports. Recently, I have found a fitness gym that is unique that can help me destress both my mind and body! SPARKD is Asia’s first Brain and Fitness Hub bringing together state-of-the-art science-based technologies to train your body and brain. This gym utilizes proven methodologies, intelligent programming and cognitive-motor training in the group workout sessions and personal fitness sessions!
I did the Cambridge Brain Sciences assessment to test my cognition. In the assessment, I completed an online suite of neurocognitive tasks, and it accurately measures core elements of my cognitive function, including memory, attention, reasoning, and verbal abilities. The personal instructor then used the assessment outcome to determine the activities that are suitable for me in the personal training.
There are a total of 3 zones, namely class zone, gym zone, and neuro zone.
Each class is designed to dual-task, to move your body whilst engaging your mind to focus on a cognitive task at hand. It was really fun to be working out with other participants, as we rotated in between tasks, and pumped up as the instructor guided us! It was really cool that the barbells and weighted balls were using water weight!
Other than the equipment and machines that usual gyms provide, there were additional functions to the gym machines. For example, the treadmill has certain functions that can engage the brain.
This machine trains the balance and stability of the body and brain. It was a really engaging and interesting workout!
This machine trains our ability to execute a cognitive and physical action concurrently. It is really fun, even though it can get more challenging as the level of difficulty increases!
Brain Fitness training at SPARKD demands both activations of your brain and body simultaneously, also known as dual tasking, it is an essential skill in daily life and is easily overlooked.
