Meet Your Coaches

Ryan Glatt

With a strong background in exercise science and human health, Ryan develops curriculum for the health and fitness industry on health neuroscience, and coaching individuals towards optimal brain health. He has completed programs from the Amen Clinics, the NeuroCoaching Institute, the Neuroscience Academy, the NeuroLeadership Institute, Neuroscience for Coaches, and others on the topics of brain health, sleep, and mindfulness.

He pursues continued education in exercise programs specifically targeted towards those with dementia, Parkinson’s, ASD, and traumatic brain injury. He is enrolled in the Master’s of Applied Neuroscience program at the King’s College of London, actively consults for brain-based technology companies like SMARTFit, and assists in operating a Brain Health Center within the Pacific Neuroscience Institute in Santa Monica, CA.

Dr. Sarah McEwen is an experienced PhD Research Cognitive Psychologist with 14 years clinical research experience and a demonstrated track-record of grants and publications while at top tier academic universities, including UCLA and UCSD. She is skilled in MRI, Cognitive Neuroscience and Clinical Research with mental health populations, specifically those at risk for or diagnosed with dementia. She is the Co-Founder of a UCSD Qualcomm Institute-based start-up, Genius Gyms, which is developing an innovative platform that integrates emerging technologies and neuroscience games to help older adults improve their cognitive and physical health and promote successful aging through exercise.

She currently serves as the Clinical Director of the Brain Health Center at the Pacific Neuroscience Institute in Santa Monica, CA, and works with some of country’s most esteemed geriatric psychiatrists, diagnostic technologies, and develops cutting edge information for the prevention and remediation of dementia.

Is this course for you?

Are you an agent of change looking to slow the effects of aging within your client base, community, and the world? Are you looking for innovative fitness programming geared towards preventing cognitive decline based in cutting-edge research?

Whether you want to be the go-to professional in the dramatically growing market of active aging, or make difference in helping those at risk for or with dementia, this course will significantly transform your understanding of the brain, its relationship to exercise, and how to leverage them to slow cognitive decline in the individuals that need it most.

You will learn the neuroscience of:

  • The Course of Cognitive Aging
  • Cognitive Decline and Cognitive Reserve
  • The Cognitive Domains of Attention, Memory, & Executive Functions
  • Functional Brain Networks and Neuroanatomy
  • Differential Effects of Exercise on the Brain & Cognition
  • Combining Exercise with Cognitive Stimuli

This Program Is Broken Down Into 4 Main Modules

Module 1

Module 2

Module 3

Module 4

  • Introduction to the Brain & Neuroplasticity
  • Explore the essential neuroanatomy associated with cognition, movement, and behavior, along with the mechanisms of brain change and neuroplasticity.
  • The Neuroscience of Cognitive Decline
  • Learn which aspects of cognition decline and when, gain a deeper understanding of Neurodegenerative diseases, and identify what occurs to brain structure and function with age.
  • Physical Activity, Exercise, and the Brain
  • Know what each major modality and type of physical activity or exercise does to brain structure and function, so you can program for optimal brain health.
  • Combining Cognitive & Physical Training
  • Learn the cutting-edge techniques of combining brain challenges under specific physiological states to enhance cognitive function and promote brain health throughout the lifespan.
