The Science behind the Program

Find out why Zing Performance chose to look at the Cerebellum and how these unique exercises can help develop this part of the brain.

An Overview Of The Cerebellum

‘The Brain’s Brain’

The power of Zing lies in recent discoveries about a part of the brain called the Cerebellum. Sometimes known as “the brain’s brain”, it is a small yet major brain region, at only 10% of the brain’s volume it holds 50% of the total neurons.

It is responsible for the automation of fundamental skills. These skills include reading, writing, listening, spatial awareness, language skills and social interaction. When these skills are not fully developed processing information and making decisions becomes slower and harder to complete.

Brain - Body Connection:

The Key To Lasting Improvements

The Zing programs create enhanced human performance by breaking through the “glass ceilings” that often curtails skill development in a life limiting way. Using a personalised program of coordinative exercises which you access through an app, we develop the connections in your brain required to perform at your best. Neurological assessments are used to monitor your progress and update you on your changes.

Exercise Drives Performance

- Zing Performance takes this to a whole new level

There is a large body of evidence supporting how exercise improves performance. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services produced a booklet for schools summarizing the impact of exercise on academic performance, including indicators of cognitive skills and attitudes, academic behaviors, and academic achievement. It summarizes 50 well researched published papers in a form that schools can use  “The Association Between School-Based Physical Activity, Including Physical Education, and Academic Performance”

How Does Zing Stimulate The Brain

How Does Zing Stimulate The Brain

At Zing Performance we have built upon research which demonstrates that the Cerebellum can be developed through coordinative exercise and particularly through exercises that stimulate the three areas which form the balance system;

  • Vestibular system – located in the inner ear
  • Visual system – uses information received through the eyes
  • Somatosensory system – uses information received from the muscles and joints

Extensive research enables us to breakthrough the glass ceilings that so often impede the full development of skills.

The Coordinative Exercises

The Coordinative Exercises

The Zing Performance exercises require careful movements which can be difficult, but no great physical strength or endurance is needed, for example standing on one leg and moving your head from side to side.

By performing coordinative exercises daily, it stimulates the Cerebellum which is responsible for attention, memory and coordination making it more efficient and automatic. When these skills are more automatic there is less stress on the brain increasing the ‘mental resources’ available for a range of tasks.

Zing has become world leader in creating personalized “intelligent” programs with these exercises.
