Research & Resources

There is significant research that shows aerobic exercise enhances neuroplasticity.

The Brain x Body Fitness Studio will act as a research centre to trial products and services associated with healthy ageing to give members the opportunity to experience their benefits first hand. 

The studio is contributing to research into active ageing and specifically, the benefits of regular exercise. The studio is working on projects with Flinders University, The University of Adelaide and SAMHRI.
