Peak - Brain Training Review

What's it about?

Peak - Brain Training is a collection of games intended for adults to boost brain skills such as memory, problem-solving, language, and recognizing emotion. Peak is the self-professed number one brain training app. It’s designed to both challenge and improve a variety of your cognitive skills in short, but intense, bursts which you can fit in around your busy day. Currently boasting over 40 games in total, Peak’s edge is that these games were in fact designed by neuroscience experts. Peak has a scientific advisory board complete with a few notable names, which continuously collaborates on the design and content of their games.

In order to push your brain to reach its full potential, Peak has recently introduced Coach, your very own personal brain trainer! Coach is there to tailor your brain workout, tell you when you need to flex your grey matter muscles, what you need to work harder on, and essentially keep you going to reach your peak.

Our Advanced Training Programmes are the next step in cognitive exercise.

These programmes are more focused but the effort is worth it.
