BRAIN BODY BENEFITS: When information moves from left to right and front to back in the brain, it crosses midlines which integrates the brain hemispheres and aids the brain in organizing information. Movements completed on the Cross Country Skier, that cross the midline, enlist more parts of the brain for well-developed attention systems. Using both sides of the body together is critical to development and assists children in activities such as putting on shoes, writing and cutting. In sum, the deluxe skier promotes the coordination and communication of the left and right hemispheres of the brain!

Did you know you can beat stress, lift your mood, fight memory loss, sharpen your intellect, and function better than ever simply by elevating your heart rate and breaking a sweat? The evidence is incontrovertible: aerobic exercise physically remodels our brains for peak performance.

Filled with amazing case studies (such as the revolutionary fitness program in Naperville, Illinois, that has put the local school district of 19,000 kids first in the world of science test scores), SPARK is the first book to explore comprehensively the connection between exercise and the brain. It will change forever the way you think about your morning run.
