What makes Neuro-Logic Training (NLT) different?

NLT applies neuroscience to exercise. We consider everything about how the nervous system influences and is influenced by exercise to create a powerful, unique exercise experience. NLT leverages the power of an appropriately engaged body and mind, providing the opportunity to transform the body while evolving desired behavior patterns, attitudes, and cognitive skills.
