NeuroGym is a brain training system available online. The system promises to help you “innercise” to achieve a better you. Here’s our NeuroGym review.
What is NeuroGym?
NeuroGym is an online brain training program that works in a vastly different way than conventional brain training programs.
With NeuroGym, you “innercise” your brain. Innercising is different from exercising because it’s internal, apparently. To innercise your brain, you use audio meditation programs and guided thinking tutorials.
The program was created by John Assaraf, known for his appearance in The Secret as well as his own two New York Times bestselling books: Having It All and The Answer.
As you progress through the program, it changes from week to week. You move through the 12 levels of the program – all of which offer different levels of meditations, training programs, guides, and tutorials.
By the end of the training program, the program claims that you should have the mindset necessary to lose weight, achieve your goals, and live the life you want to live.
NeuroGym is a subscription based program with a number of different courses. The program was created by a San Diego-based company.
How Does NeuroGym Work?
NeuroGym consists of a series of online training programs – like videos, audio files, and eBooks – that help you achieve various goals. Different programs are catered to different life goals, including:
— Financial Success
— Weight Loss
— Increased Confidence
These are the three core products. They’re priced between $1000 and $1500 for a 12 level brain re-training system.
The three products work in mostly the same way. Over the course of 12 steps, you’ll “re-train” your brain to achieve various goals.
The financial success program, for example, promises that you will
“quickly break free from the self-doubt, fear, procrastination and lack of confidence that is holding you back from achieving greater financial success and freedom.”
Meanwhile, the weight loss program promises to “retrain your brain by utilizing the latest evidence based technologies and methodologies from Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology. The weight loss program is a purely audio-based training program.
The final product, the increased confidence program, claims to help you “win the game of fear” and overcome your emotions, doubts, anxieties, stresses, and worries:
“You will develop unstoppable confidence and the beliefs and habits to quickly achieve your goals and live the life you deserve.”
In addition to the three core products, there are a number of supplemental courses, including one called Closing of Business Success ($7500 for a 3 day program) and another called The Million Dollar Success Training Library ($5,000 for 75+ hours of training videos).
The common theme with all of these programs is that there’s only one thing standing between you and the life you want to live: and that’s your brain.
The Science Behind NeuroGym
NeuroGym was created as part of a joint effort between neuroscientists, psychologists, medical doctors, and researchers. The company appears to be committed to taking a scientific approach to brain training.
When you try to learn more about the science behind NeuroGym by clicking “The Science” tab at the official homepage, you’re directed to a small paragraph that talks about how neuroplasticity is changing the way scientists view brain training:
“The latest scientific findings establish that you can change your life by changing your brain. For many years, scientists believed that your brain was a static, hard-wired organ—but the study of Neuroplasticity has proven otherwise. Your brain is forming new connections and growing new brain cells everyday. A study published in Clinical Psychology Review suggests that, when you practice a variety of specific brain related activities you have the ability to transform your health, finances, career and relationships. NeuroGym, uses the latest brain science to help you achieve positive, lasting change—creating the life of your dreams. We call our brain-retraining process Innercise®.”
That’s everything listed under “The Science” tab on NeuroGym. The company doesn’t link to the study published in Clinical Psychology Review.
The worrying part about NeuroGym is that it doesn’t disclose any clinical trials for its own program. Typically, a company will want to test its products on a number of people and then advertise those clinical results to the world.
A double blind, placebo-controlled clinical study would have done a lot to verify the effectiveness of NeuroGym. As it stands, there’s no scientific evidence listed anywhere to reinforce the claims made by NeuroGym – which is odd especially considering the company expects you to spend $500 to $7500 on their programs.
We would have liked to see more scientific evidence and more unbiased customer reviews of NeuroGym on the official website.
