‘Brain Gyms’ help you work out your mind

‘Brain gyms’ which help members to ‘work out’ their brains are springing up all over the country. They’re essentially computer labs stocked with software that run users through mental-fitness tests and exercises.

One such example is a gym in San Francisco which charges $60/month. It’s interesting that people would find it more beneficial to go to such a place and pay a great deal more when they could get a similar (or possibly the exact same) service online or at home.

A simple search for ‘brain exercises’ yields millions of results, but within the first 10 results are different websites and references for online services, some of which are free.
