Many of us hit the gym to work on our bodies. Whether the goal is to lose weight or tone muscles, the main focus is on the physical benefits of exercising. I thought the same until not long ago when I came across SPARKD.
SPARKD is a fitness gym that focuses on not just the body but the mind as well. The team aims to energise both the physique and the brain to enhance cognitive function and improve memory, processing speed, and more.
When I learnt what SPARKD was about, I was intrigued but a little sceptical. I’d never thought about training my brain before. Nevertheless, I decided to pay the gym a visit to see what it’s all about.
Since the gym prides itself in being suitable for all age groups, I also dragged my father along. He’s getting on in age (sorry dad), and with ageing comes a decline in cognitive function which can lead to depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and affect decision-making. So if SPARKD could really improve cognitive function with its equipment and exercises, I wanted my father to reap the benefits as well.
