Which brain training is best for me?

There are several ways to begin your memory training.

Memory Tune™

Many people are using our premium online memory course, Memory Tune™. This validated and University-tested training gained outstanding results for people in the trials. It comes to you via email twice a week for seven weeks so you have the opportunity to complete the tasks in your own home and in your own time.Memory Tune™ covers all the vital memory types and gives you the tips and strategies you need as well as showing you clearly how memory works along with plenty of practice to help your memory improve.

John Burton Hunt“I think the Memory Tune course is brilliant.

The material has been carefully thought through providing a balance of information, stimulation and user friendliness. As I have learned and practiced what I can do to help me remember names, appointments etc., I have found myself with a new general feeling of alertness. ‘Memory Tunes’ is life-enriching!” John B-H.


Memory Tune™ is accompanied by ongoing newsletters, things to do to support good brain and memory health, and online help from Dr Allison Lamont and Gillian Eadie.


Brain Fit For Life™

Brainfit for Life classes  are face-to-face training in very convivial workshops where you are personally taught by an Accredited Brain Fit™ Coach. Sessions last for an hour and a half and are held over 4 weeks. This timing has proved very effective because there is time for practice and reflection between sessions.

Follow-up tasks and emails help with motivation. Again there is ongoing support through the newsletters which are always packed with information and memory activities.

There are several centres in New Zealand where Brainfit for Life classes are available and we look forward to these courses being available soon in international centres also.

“I am finding it all quite a challenge but wish to tell you that I am absolutely loving it.  Doing it together which makes it fun.  I feel that you have given me a new lease on life and am finding it hard to get to do much else. You haven’t only given me techniques – you’ve given me hope!” Margaret
