‘Brainfit for Life®’ is a 4-week series of classes, each one-and-a-half hours in length. Each class builds on the previous session and takes you through, step-by-step, all you need to know about the brain and the way it works to support a sharp memory. Memory strategies are taught and practised in class through a variety of activities accompanied by a lot of laughter!
A friendly, supportive atmosphere is quickly established and your accredited Brainfit® Coach is experienced in understanding that class members will need a variety of ways to approach new information. Many strategies are presented and class members find their own favourites to help them remember effectively. Dr Allison Lamont’s six key memory skills are covered along with the life-style factors that keep the brain healthy.

I am very much enjoying my Brainfit class
The course has been so enjoyable and it’s with real enthusiasm that I leave each week to test my knowledge. Absolutely inspiring. It’s like eating something delicious and wanting more.
Relaxing atmosphere and I could have a giggle at times. Michael was just the perfect tutor.
Bronwyn, thank you for leading us on this course. You were well prepared, gracious, and an excellent presenter.
Thanks for yesterday’s ‘power hour!’ After the training, I spoke about the content with my husband and he particularly liked (as well as I) methods to learn someone’s name by taking a mental picture and making relevant associations. We will both be trying this as and when we meet new people.
I have struggled with cognitive issues as I have advanced in years, it has really worried me. Having been in Ina Meeten’s class in Blenheim, I am a lot more confident that I can look forward to many more years without “losing my marbles”!!
I now have a real purpose in life, and I think I can help others as well.
I am enjoying my Brainfit® sessions with Ina. She is a great leader and she explains things well. I am a VHF radio operator with the Nelson Marlborough Marine radio, talking to vessels in the top of the South Island area. I need very quick thinking for some situations. This work helps with my brain function. Thank you Ina for the chance to attend.
Feel encouraged, very hopeful of improving memory. Stimulated. Had excellent teacher, many wonderful laughs, much to learn.
Jessie, thank you for the course. It has made me feel so much better about myself and have “exercises” to maintain my self-confidence.
I liked the way Jessie presented the course. It was very low key and non-threatening and encouraging. Her pace was good, we got through the material well and had a few laughs. It is good to prepare to deal with decreasing memory.
I think focus-connect-rehearse says it all for me. I met a man a few days ago and he was actually admiring my bike. We ended up chatting and he told me his wife was Sue and he was Neil. Bingo!
Very clearly presented. Good balance between information and practice. Most people do not know you can reverse your ‘brain loss’.
I am thoroughly enjoying the course and find it very beneficial, so thank you.
The course was fun and well presented. I found myself looking forward to each class and was very pleased when I got the opportunity to catch up on one class that I was unable to attend at the time.
I had an opportunity to practice remembering names at a social gathering on Friday where we met a lot of new people. Being an inquisitive person I found it easier to probe into people’s names rather than weave a story around them. For instance I was introduced to a lady called Sheryl and asked her if she was Sheryl or Cheryl. By concentrating on people’s names and repeating them as soon as possible I was able to remember most people I met, even differentiating between an Annette and a Lynette so was quite pleased.
‘Bobbie’s course renewed my self belief and that memory can be improved at any age.’
It is an extremely stimulating and useful course at any age or stage. I like the follow-up emails which remind me to keep up the things I’ve learnt.
I really enjoyed the course. Accompanied with the book it was just great. Ina was an excellent teacher and we would like to do another course next year with her.
Very worthwhile course & well worth the few hours it takes. Lots of good new tricks to aid the ageing grey matter!
