I have used the Brain Fitness Program for over three years and continue to enjoy my brain workout . I started using this amazing product while working at a Retirement Community in Northern Ca. I initially started the program because I was going to be coaching seniors going through the program. To my surprise there were sounds I could not hear . I am 48 years old and did not expect that at all. I started reading about the science behind this progam and the validated proven results it has and did not want to stop. This progam is extremely engaging and you do your daily brain exercises fully knowing that you are choosing to help yourself. The program is designed to work with each individual person . The results I saw with the seniors were awesome. Every resident who started the program wanted to finish and did. Some comments were, I remember my phone conversations days after I had them, I can concentrate more and participate in daily life more confidently, it taught me to listen more and hear sounds clearer. For me after contining to go through the program I am hearing the sounds I could not hear when I first started. It has helped me concentrate and really listen to the sounds that make up the words we hear. I am now going through the new visual program, InSight. After I finish one program I start the other and keep alternating between both of them. The best results you will get from the programs is to keep using them. Complete the program let it sit and then go through it again and again. There are many different levels in each program so you are constantly being challenged. This is a workout for your brain. We eat healthy for our hearts, we know we need exercise for our bodies and we need to keep our minds sharp so we can grow older and enjoy the journey. I call it total body fitness. Please e-mail me if you are reading this asking yourself if you should buy this program. I would be happy to answer any questions. Make an investment for yourself and do this for YOU!! Gina

When my 29 year old son left the hospital after suffering a traumatic brain injury [...] he had no memory and no ability to make memories. As we were leaving Luby's cafeteria he looked at me and asked, "When are we going to eat?". My first thought was that he still had his sense of humor, but quickly realized that he did not know that he had just eaten a large meal.

Taking him back to his brain surgeon we were told that the damage was so extensive that he would probably never be able to remember anything. Research on the Internet led us to the work of Michael Merzenich, PhD, with Posit Science. A couple of phone calls later and we booked a flight to San Francisco to obtain the program and learn how to use it. The results were astonishing to say the least. Within 3 weeks of using the program for an hour a day, Ryan's ability to make memories became rapidly evident. By the time he finished the program he could recite a 10 digit phone number after hearing it just once and he began to get interested in his previous favorite TV show, Friends.

A combination of the Brain Fitness and Cortex/Insight programs from Posit Science, FastForWord Scientific Learning programs, neurofeedback, Kumon and other modalities has enabled him to begin getting his life back together. There are many videos of Ryan's journey of recovery on[...] just put Ryan Reitmeyer in the search bar.

A .pdf version of the story is on the web [...]and we welcome your thoughts, comments and inquiries. Our family will forever be thankful for the tremendous effort that the Posit Science team has put into their products.

Ryan's father, Doug Reitmeyer

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and games and improving your brain!!! October 6, 2008
I have been using the brain improvement program from Posit Science for three years. I was in my late 50's and experiencing many "senior moments" that had me worried about being able to maintain my business as I was also forgetting appointments that I had booked. I also had been diagnosed with a slight hearing loss that made hearing people from across the room or in a crowd a real challange. The words would be muddled at best and unable to be heard at worst. I was also "losing" keys, forgetting to deliver messages to my spouse...and on and on. The first time through the program brought about such improvements in my hearing and attention to details it was like have my hearing loss restored. My continued use of this product has improved my ability to confidently speak to people in crowds as I can now hear much more clearly than before using the program. It is truly like a "gym" for the brain. You have to make up your mind to visit the program regularly (just like the gym) and see the results. The program is very easy to use! The graphics are amazimg and the visual reqards for getting the right answer make the progress effortless. Try it...and give yourself a leg up espcially if you are experiencing some of those "senior moments" I was having. I do not have any ownership interest in the company that makes this wonderful product....but if they ever go public I will be first in line!!! Charline Truitt, Irvine, Ca

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for seniors! October 13, 2008
By S. Mark
I started using the Brain Fitness Program (BFP) at age 35 in an effort to combat chemobrain and I'm still impressed by it's effectiveness. Within just a couple of weeks of starting the program I noticed that I was better able to recall words in conversation, follow a train of thought, and remember appointments. I also found that it lengthened my attention span which had been reduced to that of a two year old! I was so impressed by the program that I got a copy for my parents, age 67, and have recommended it to many other young cancer survivors.

I had fun with the exercises and found myself getting very competitive - trying to outdo myself with each successive session. I began to look forward to my hour with the BFP each day. I continue to use it periodically whenever I feel my memory slipping a bit and it always comes right back.
