Del Mar Community Connections to offer two Brain Fitness programs


Del Mar Community Connections is again offering two popular Brain Fitness programs starting March 3 at the Del Mar Community Building, 225 Ninth St., Del Mar.

For those interested in participating, orientation meetings will be held at 2 p.m. Feb. 24 for the “Basic Brain Fitness” program, and at 2 p.m. March 2 for the “Refresher Brain HQ.” Both are held at the Del Mar Community Building. Attendance at the orientation meetings will help ensure participation in the program. The programs are free for those living in the 92014 ZIP code; $75 for all others (proof of residency required).

The Basic Fitness programs, developed by Posit Science from work at UC San Francisco, are designed to improve thinking, understanding and memory. The scientifically designed exercises are done on a computer in a classroom for one hour three times a week. The program is self-paced and adjusts to each individual’s abilities and needs.

The “refresher” program for alums of the Basic Brain Fitness is a self-defined program that lets the participant select from 25 different exercises based on what functions of the brain the participant wants to improve. The six-week course will be given twice this spring.

More than 80 participants have taken the Brain Fitness courses and nearly all report improved brain performance, from the ability to remember better, to focus better and to process information faster.
