THE TRAIN BODY BRAIN MISSION:

Train Body Brain is a fitness class which builds resilience in body, brain and spirit..   

Every Train Body Brain class is designed to establish fitness, meditation, and spiritual self care habits that will act as effective tools of support for the rest of your life.

It’s not about how exercise makes you look -  but how it makes you feel. It’s about nourishing not punishing  your body, brain and spirit.

 


What is the Train Body Brain Method?

WHAT IS THE TRAIN BODY BRAIN METHOD?

First a dynamic warm up.

As we warm up the body, the brain is also encouraged to let go of habitual negative thoughts & let in positive intentions.

Then, 20 minutes of HiiT High Intensity Interval Training followed by 25 minutes to strengthen and stretch.

HiiT is the quickest way to flood your brain with serotonin and endorphins. Each of the  HIIT exercises are accompanied by powerfully positive mantras to nourish the soul and boost the brain.

The Train Body Brain method not only delivers all the physical benefits of a 60 minute workout in just 20 - but also a feeling of peace and calm more typically felt after a yoga class.

We finish with 15 minutes of mindful meditation  Arriving in the present moment by simply noticing the breath.  Train Body Brain meditations focus on self-compassion and letting go of anxiety.


I am a big supporter of Train Body Brain. A lot of teenagers struggle with self-esteem and comparing themselves negatively to others. Sadly, body issues and competitiveness are rife, especially with social media freely accessible night and day. We all want to be liked and to fit in at this emotionally vulnerable time of our lives. Train Body Brain provides teenage girls with a powerful and positive toolkit for improving their physical and mental wellbeing both now and throughout their adult lives.

Why do teenagers need the Train Body Brain Method? 

  • Inundated with images of the so-called perfect body and perfect life, the stresses of school, exams and friendships: being a teenager in today’s world is very challenging.

  • 75% of mental health problems start in adolescence.

  • 37% of 14 year olds report feeling worthless, unhappy and unable to concentrate.

  • Rates of depression and anxiety among teenagers have increased by 70% in the last 25 years.


WHY DO WE COMBINE MINDFULNESS AND HIIT?

 

The combination of meditation and HIIT may at first seem surprising: HIIT is designed to increase the heart rate while meditation focuses on calming down the body and mind.

 

However, a recent State University of New Jersey research project showed that students who meditated and did aerobic exercise combined in one class,  twice a week over a two month period, experienced a 40% reduction in symptoms of depression.

 

This data is reinforced by what we find in girls who come to Train Body Brain classes - they feel calmer and happier after class, and this has a positive impact on their anxiety and mood throughout the week too.


Results?

A Train Body Brain class  introduces girls to an empowering  habit of self care & love  towards their body, brain and spirit.  Allowing them to stand strong when they leave class and set about  accomplishing their dreams.
