NeuroGym – Innercise Brain Training System


NeuroGym Review

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.

NeuroGym Brain-A-Thon

On November 14, 2015, NeuroGym hosted its fourth annual Brain-A-Thon. That free online event involved host John Assaraf and a number of his friends and advisors.

Joining the seminar involved filling out a brief online form to reserve your spot. At Brain-A-Thon events, John will discuss new scientific breakthroughs that will help you release the mental and emotional blockages preventing you from “skyrocketing your success” – according to one description.

You don’t have to travel to the event live – you can watch it over any internet-connected device. it’s an online webinar-style event.

Who Makes NeuroGym?

NeuroGym was created by a company named PraxisNow. That company was founded by a guy named John Assaraf, who we’ve briefly mentioned above. John is the current CEO of PraxisNow.

So who is John Assaraf?

At John’s official website,, he describes himself as “a spiritual entrepreneur, philanthropist and teacher with an insatiable passion for brain research, quantum physics and helping others achieve” their goals.

Assaraf made his fortune primarily in real estate and internet software. He founded a brain research company named PraxisNow, for example, and also claims to have grown a multi-million dollar real estate company.

Along the way, Assaraf has also found time to write two New York Times best-selling books, including Having It All and The Answer.

John has also appeared on Anderson Cooper 360, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Larry King Live. Some of you might also recognize Assaraf from the movie and book “The Secret”, which discusses some of Assaraf’s brain training research and work.

The company lists its address in San Diego County, California as the following:

PO Box 5005 #138
Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067

  1. Wow… what a bunch of Nay Sayers! I am a member and love the energy, the support and the momentum we all receive from each other. It is like paying for a Mental Gym membership. I can’t believe these negative comments.. but than again.. I can. According to the Bob Proctors of the world.. Only 3 Percent of human beings truly shift into a higher vibration and state of consciousness to reach their full potential in life. All the nay sayers can stay vibrating and swimming in their quest to better themselves. Enjoy the journey peeps!

  2. Hi. finally a review different, let’s say negative :) English is my second language so apologies for any mistake :) I was wondering how is the Facebook community of WTGM program and you have answered. I was surprised to read that people in there do not find the program life changing, as you wrote after being one year on it. I do believe that all these coaching programs are meant to get your ass moving and if you do move you do get results, but this is something obvious. They could be of help if you have difficulties to stay focused. I am not a fan or believer of the Law of Attraction but I do believe that self-negative talk or not having a clear goal in mind (visualized) will hold you back from life’s successes. Ancient Romans said “nil difficile volenti” so once you do set your goal, Assaraf is saying nothing new. The Brain a thon has guest claiming to make 25.000 dollars every 2 weeks, another made hundred of dollars in a few months. Nobody explains what is the job they are doing and there are no traces of them on the internet outside the Brain a thon. Assaraf plays on 2 things in selling: “it is easy” and “you need it” (so you justify the purchase). I am sure that people who found it useful (and there are otherwise Assaraf would not have bulit a multi millionaire company on it) just started to DO, to ACT and attribute it to the program which, at the most, kept them focused. Thank you for your opinion

    • Thanks for your reply! You make some very good points. For instance like what you say about the people with their (highly positive) testemonies. It’s very weird they dont give any details whatsoever about their business/profession. Nor is here anything to find about them on the internet.

  3. I’ve just started the WTGM program, and I think it’s great and all, but really really wondering if it’s “$1000 great”…. John Assaraf seems lovable and passionate, but in reality, I suppose there’s no way for me to really know his heart. His facebook page seems to show the real him. If I were raking in as much as he is, I might be all happy on FB everyday too. I remember being sucked in by Loral Langemeyer (also seen in the Secret movie) years ago… lost 10K. Total rip-off mentoring. Horrendous and traumatic financially. ANYWAY…

    I certainly don’t want to sabotage myself or any progress by saying this, but I can’t help but think of the future and wonder if this is going to do anything to me that I can’t realize on my own, you know, by listening to an Eckhart Tolle audio book, reading the Tao, learning to brainstorm and map, and keeping a journal. Or just watching the Secret movie repeatedly, for the price of a $15 DVD. I mean, I don’t even want to become filthy rich because I suspect it has its headaches. I just want enough to afford my daughter’s medical care, maybe a decent retirement, right?! And of course to not hate how I earn – have purpose and passion, and build security that will be comforting in old age. I’m not even shooting for over the top riches…. just enough not to freak out every time there’s a real need, and enough to be giving.

    I’m deaf in one ear and not sure that the headphones are really helpful for me to hear the underlying subliminal messages or maybe the binural beats… if that’s what they’re using. Plus I can’t be hypnotized for sh&^… I’ve tried many times and it does nothing. So I guess I’m right in the middle of trying to decide if this isn’t something I can innately do on my own, knowing – duh – that action has to take place for change to take place. Do I really need to spend $1000 (with the very likelihood of spending more in the NeuroGym realm) just to get off my ass and aim in the right direction? Couldn’t I just listen to Ester Hicks/Abraham for free on U-tube? Same same, without the uh… well without the “science”. Heck, even Jesus said, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Hm. So do I need to pay a bunch of money to hammer the same message home? Could I do the same with Neuroprogrammer 3 for under $100? I’ve still got a couple more weeks within the 30 day money back guarantee. Certainly willing to give it a fair try, but my kid sure could use that $1000 dollars right now, and I don’t want to spend it unless I know it’s going to result in producing a whole lot more, kwim?

    Yes, it has been very difficult to find authentic reviews on this, and yes that does make me nervous.
    Surely not every single person who bought it thinks it’s awesome…. right? Marketing strategy has been studied, they know what they’re doing. You get 30 days, but not enough time to try the bulk of it, so you can’t really review it then. You didn’t get weeks 5-12… and if you did stay the course, it’s not likely you’re going to say negative things about it – if anything, you’re going to prop it up, if for no other reason than to justify what you did for whatever price. Maybe those who asked for refunds were thrilled enough to get out of it and have nothing more to pay or say?
    *I’ll post again mid April, 2017 in case anybody is interested.

    • Thank you for your post Rogue. I felt the same way about John when I first started. Then I realized he is simply a good marketer riding his exposure from the movie The Secret. He is a self-proclaimed neuroscientist but doesn’t have any actual formal education in the field. Additionally he said that you get personal coaching from him (which he charges $5,000/day to companies). Turns out the coaching is him talking to his phone for 5 minutes while driving somewhere. Hardly what I imagined he would do for consulting for a company.

      You make a great point about the money back guarantee. They only give you 30 days to get your money back on a 90 day program. In hindsight I wish I asked for my money back within the 30 days. I’ve been in the private FB groups for over a year now and do not see people that are raving about the program, or that it was life changing.

      Bottom line is if you want something you have to take action, no amount of listening to audio tracks are going to get you to where you want to go.

    • Thanks for writing this review, Rogue. I was starting to worry about dropping $1000. Went to Barnes & Nobles and bought an NLP book instead. Thanks again for this helpful review!

  4. Thank you for your candid personal review. These copywriters who write the ads are amazing at what they do. I learned awhile ago to look for real reviews to find out what folks real experiences are like. Thanks again.

  5. This article, unlike many other websites, expresses doubts. That is a good thing as many, many other websites purporting reviews are nothing but posted endorsements by those trying to get you to buy the program. The underlying tone can read more like an endorsement with no negative. Also too many websites show up with John’s name or Praxsis. There are almost no reviews or comments by purchasers outside of the Brain-A-Thon’s website that can be attributed to real people that have tried (and been successful) or had minimal to no results either.

    There have been several postings by someone called Jenny R. Most / everything posted by this person reads like someone who is ESL. Grammar is terrible in the endorsement by this person. It almost reads like this person is an affiliate who gets a spiff ($$$) when a sale is attributed to their involvement. I’m no English teacher but at least I try to reread my work first.

    Eric’s opinion does not go any further to explain how the program(s) do not work or if he’s purchased. His last comment does serve a purpose. Be very, very cautious before you drop $1,000+ on this program. Did I say VERY cautious.

    As for Tim. He grabs one part and tries to throw it back into Eric’s face. Working to be positive is great but his posting reads more like someone who likes to see himself in type. It would better be served by trying to get Eric to elaborate.

    I was going to view the 9 hour free video for 2016 and make a decision. However now it’s not likely I will consider the program. There are few, if any, reviews out there and that is worrisome.

    • Rusty thank you for your comments. You bring up some good points particularly that most of the reviews that you do see on other websites are from affiliates or Neurogym itself most likely.
      I first purchased Winning the Game of Money a year ago. I did the prescribed “innercise” daily as instructed along with all of the video training with each session. The entire course is 12 levels, each level should be completed in a week. This is probably why they only offer you a 30 day money back guarantee, you won’t know if the program is any good or not until after you’ve gone through the entire course, much past the refund deadline.
      I can tell you that after 12 weeks of “Innercising” daily and doing the other training in each level neither my mind nor reality changed. John does hammer home the point that you must take actions that produce the results you want, which I was doing. However you can take action everyday without the “innercising” and get the same results. I found that the “innercising” of 20-40 minutes a day along with the other training actually took up precious time that I could have applied to actually getting the results I was looking for.
      After the 12 weeks they offer a consultation with a “success coach”, i.e. sales person. Basically this is another opportunity for them to sell you another one of their courses, most likely Winning the Game of Fear. Which I bought, followed the steps and course just like the previous program. Still nothing changed. I’ve essentially spent a year doing these courses just as prescribed because I know you’re not going to get results on the first go, you have to be persistent, form new habits and beliefs and take daily action.
      However what I can tell you after a year is that nothing has changed. The time, money and energy I put into Neurogym’s courses could have been better spent somewhere else. I’m not looking for anything other than to warn others to seek a different path. Being positive, continuing your education and personal growth are great things to pursue, but don’t fall for products and programs such as those offered by Neurogym.

      • Their “offer” ist currently 4,995 $ for a single payment. No matter, how positive other reviews may be: If I would invest that amount of money, I surely would invest it for example in company certification, sales training, university programme, … Something, where I am confident, that I would get a specific return.
        “Scientifically proven” is on many soaps, moisturizers, nutritional supplements, …
        For me, this phrase is a little worn out, especially when sources are not made transparent. Fortunately, I get along without such a product.

      • Thank you for your great feedback.
        I have been onto this path of mind reframing to attract success for years with on and off results. So I am very sceptical when I hear familiar story with a promise of a quick and successful results. But I am also always hopeful and a bit gullible. But you aid it all and I got all my answers to my concerns.
        For that kind of money it is better to buy some good books and hire a local one on one business or personal coach who actually will see you one on one and track your progress.
        This is just a big marketing scham that sells you less for more money based on the celebrity appearance

  6. Their programs are a scam and do not work. John is trying to maximize his exposure from the movie “The Secret” by trying to convince people that if they simply re-train their mind and thoughts their world will magically become better. Do not waiste your time, energy and money here.

    • So let me get this straight. You are saying that retraining your brain to be positive does not work and is not a good trait?

      • No not at all. What I”m saying is that their programs do not work. You certainly do not need to pay thousands of dollars to retrain your brain.
