While many thought processes slow down with age, research has shown that you can rejuvenate your brain with a program consisting of specialized physical, cognitive and social activities. Memory Fitness(R) has delivered memory improvement classes to nearly 2500 seniors in Ottawa, Canada since 2014. In 2017 we are expanding to the Greater Toronto area.R

For healthy people, brain training increases the number of connections between brain cells and brain areas. The good news is that these improvements are possible at any age.


The Memory Fitness program incorporates physical and cognitive exercise and socialization. 

  • Physical exercise improves heart and lung function, priming the brain for learning. We offer gentle cardio routines at the beginning of each class.

  • Cognitive training creates new connections in the brain. We offer a variety of fun activities that stimulate the senses and brain functions.

  • Socialization enhances the cognitive exercise experience and helps strengthen learning. We encourage social interaction during the sessions.  

To better understand the program, we offer a free one-hour information session and demonstration to interested groups. During these sessions, participants learn about brain health and approaches to optimize and maintain cognitive function. There is also a fun and interactive demonstration of the Memory Fitness program. Find the location closest to you by clicking below.
