Peak Performance Training
Train your brain and your body will follow. When it comes to peak performance, the brain is key.. The brain controls the body, controls your actions, decisions, and movements; It is like moving and controlling a puppet; the brain is the commander in chief. We reach peak performance when we unlock our mental edge; our brain.
"Used by elite performers around the world"
At MEFS, thanks to cutting edge technology and science-based tools and techniques we can now see, analyze and understand how your brain is performing and create training programs to improve its performance and reach peak performance. Among these technologies, Neurofeedback and Brain mapping are used by elite performers around the world
How does our brain work?
"Brainwaves are produced by synchronized electrical pulses from neurons communicating with each other."
Brainwaves are produced by synchronized electrical pulses from neurons communicating with each other. The speed of the electrical energy flowing through the brain is known as our processing speed or brainwaves. At MEFS, thanks to cutting-edge technology and science-based tools and techniques we can now see, analyze and understand how your brain is performing and create training programs to improve its performance.
Why is understanding brainwaves important?
"A healthy brain should be able to access to these brain speeds/states effortlessly"
A healthy brain has optimal speed. Think about your brain speed like shifting gears on a bike. A healthy brain should be able to access these brain speeds/states effortlessly. For example, if your brain is stuck in high gear for too long you could experience being overwhelmed, anxious, overly stressed, irritable, tension headaches, and more. The same is also true for being stuck in low gear, you could experience trouble with motivation, difficulty learning, and processing information, difficulty regulating your moods, and more.

What is Neurofeedback?
Neuro = Brain | Feedback = Response
Google Review: D.M.
MEFS cognitive training has really improved my ability to focus and retain information in my new position...
Neurofeedback, also known as brain training or EEG biofeedback, is about “feedback” from the brain and it helps train brain activity and improve cognitive performance. It works by placing a few harmless sensors (readers) on the scalp to measure and monitor brain activity intended to train someone to gain voluntary control over that brain function. Neurofeedback is a subset or a type of biofeedback.
It's a real procedure that involves brain training to improve mental performance or alleviate specific issues and improve specific others. The objective of a Neurofeedback training session revolves around training the brain towards optimal function allowing individuals to self-regulate.
It's a process consisting of electronic monitoring of any normal bodily function intended to train someone to gain voluntary control over that function. Through biofeedback you can learn to control things like your heart rate, breathing, muscle tension and even improve your brain function, through a process known as neurofeedback
During the session you will be asked to watch a movie you like, play a game or listen to music.
What Exactly Happens in a Neurofeedback Training Session
Google Review: J.R.
I feel more competitive in all areas of my life. I am more focused and have greater clarity...
During a neurofeedback session, you sit comfortably in front of a computer for 20-30 mins that will monitor your brainwaves, with a few sensors placed on your scalp in front of a screen or monitor. EEG sensors that monitor/read your brainwaves are a core aspect of all MEFS neurofeedback programs. Sensors are harmless and non-invasive and only read your brain's electrical impulses called waves. You will be asked to watch a movie you like, play a computer game or listen to music. The screen/monitor or the sounds/tones that you hear helps generate the feedback during the session.
"Sensors are harmless, non-invasive and only read your brain's electrical impulses called brain waves."
The first step is to choose a movie you like from Netflix or from our movie library, a brain game or music. Yes, you can watch the movie you desire at that moment! In the next step, we will place sensors on your scalp and on your ears. These sensors are totally harmless and will only read your brain waves. The next and probably the most fun step is to watch your movie, play a game or listen to music. The last and most interesting step is to learn about your results and your progress.

I have experienced better focus and productivity...
When your brain enters a calmer, focused or the desired state you will be rewarded with positive feedback on the computer screen by the game, movie, or music operating smoothly. If your brainwaves are not firing at the desired speed you will receive negative feedback (the movie pauses, the game stops, or music stops). This process is acting as a reward or conditioning system for your brain. With this type of immediate feedback, your brain will learn when something is out of balance and it will also learn what it needs to do to get back on track.
Good performance = Positive FEEDBACK (you can see the images or hear the sounds) | Poor performance = Negative FEEDBACK ( you can’t see the images or hear the sounds)
"Consequently, the brain has to “figure out” how to restore balance and get the reward again"
The catch is that the stimuli (music, game or video) operate smoothly only when the brainwaves function within an optimal range. This stimulus acts as a reward for the brain. On the other hand, when the brain does not produce waves in an optimal range, you will receive something called negative feedback. For instance, the movie pauses, or the music fades away.
This negative feedback is essentially “telling” your brain that it is headed down the wrong lane. Consequently, the brain has to “figure out” how to restore balance and get the reward again.
The Feedback Process
A. Good performance = Positive FEEDBACK | YOU CAN SEE THE IMAGES OR HEAR THE SOUNDS
B. Poor performance = Negative FEEDBACK | YOU CAN’T SEE THE IMAGES OR HEAR THE SOUNDS
The highly effective "Neurofeedback"
Google Review: K.M.
Has helped to increase my focus, mental stamina, and energy...
While you watch the movie, play the game or listen to music, your brain will need to perform in an optimal range in order to be able to see the movie images or hear the sounds. If you are not performing within an optimal range, the image or sound will temporarily fade. You will need to focus on the task you are doing (watching a movie or listening to music) in order to see or listen to your feedback selection.
Neurofeedback, rooted in science, is highly effective for optimal brain performance. The brain is a muscle that needs to be strengthened and exercised. Neurofeedback is like exercise for the brain and through repetition, practice, and time your brain creates new neural pathways that are long-lasting and permanent.
Neurofeedback is becoming mainstream and is being used all over the world by Olympic athletes, colleges and universities, top executives, entrepreneurs, and high-profile celebrities who express the impact it’s had on their careers and performance. Through our programs, these types of individuals are taking advantage of this effective tool to improve performance as it has never done before. It's a real procedure that involves brain training to improve mental performance or alleviate specific issues like insomnia, anxiety, etc. The bottom line is that neurofeedback can forever change the way that a person thinks and processes information, thus substantially changing their life.

The Tracking Progress
Google Review: K.F
The program has helped lower my resting heart rate substantially...
Throughout your training program we will be monitoring and tracking your progress after each session. Here you will learn more about your brain waves and you’ll have the opportunity to see a visual representation of where you’re starting but also each session along the way.
This is a feedback process, so coming into each session prepared to provide feedback on “any” observations is key (big or small). Over time you will notice changes to your results screens which should also begin to correlate with the changes you will notice in your daily athletic, academic, business and in life routines and challenges.

Each color is a representation of certain brain activity. This person results is showing a brain that is disconnected or not regulating as optimally as it could be. All the lines are further apart which could be an indication of some distraction, fatigue or not being in "the zone".
Client's 10th Day of Neurofeedback Training
We can see there is a big difference in the brain activity. Self-regulation is occurring and things appear to be more in sync. This person is reporting feeling more calm and relaxed and an increased ability to focus and complete tasks.
Analysis and Planning
Google Review: B.R.
I highly recommend this program for those who want to achieve their peak performance...
At MEFS we can monitor and measure your brain activity (by analyzing the brain waves). Brain analysis software like qEEG brain mapping helps identify the specific activities occurring in your brain.
A qEEG brain map gives a visual representation of how your brain is functioning and gives you the ability to visually see your unique patterns of mental strengths and weaknesses categorized into executive processing, memory processing, visual, verbal processing, and more. Then, the practitioners customize a training program to condition your brain to access a more efficient and optimal state.

Amazing Benefits of Neurofeedback
1. Bolsters Cognitive Function
Neurofeedback enhances neuroplasticity (the brain's capacity to adapt and change), and consequently can reverse or slow down the natural aging process. Research concludes that neurofeedback improves executive function and cognitive processing speed in elderly subjects. Specific instances of neurofeedback training like the beta rhythms of decreasing sensorimotor rhythm (SMR) can improve reaction time.
Another neurofeedback training session aimed at improving the alpha brain wave activity helped subjects boost their visual-spatial reasoning performance (complex mental object rotation). Subjects who were able to learn to boost their alpha brain wave activity via neurofeedback performed better at visual-spatial reasoning task (mental object rotation) [21, 22].
2. Improves Sleep Duration and Quality
When neurofeedback stimulates the sensorimotor rhythm (SMR) brain waves, sleep quality increases while time to fall asleep decreases.
Neurofeedback is a massive blessing for insomniacs. Recent research has brought to light that 18 sessions of remote or mobile neurofeedback (conducted by a certified therapist in the convenience via the internet) reduced time to fall asleep while increasing the total sleep duration.
A follow-up study confirmed that the sleep-related benefits that neurofeedback provides lasted up to 9 months. Research also suggests that theta feedback helped tense and anxious patients, while relaxed subjects only found the SMR feedback to be beneficial.
3. Helps Acquire and Hone Skills Faster
Helps promote brain waves associated with relaxation and attention. As a result, professional musicians were able to improve their performance even in stressful conditions. A follow-up study concluded that alpha/theta neurofeedback enhances the creativity, technical skills, and communication of novice musicians. Additionally, SMR neurofeedback improved their techniques too. Neurofeedback training (alpha/theta) reportedly improved musical performance of school children. As a result, neurofeedback has immense potential to revolutionize the way students learn in classrooms. On a side note, neurofeedback helped actors learn quicker while improving their creativity. Moreover, their quality and confidence also increased. Neurofeedback also impacts athletic performance. Both dance performance and golfing accuracy of subjects improved by neurofeedback. Furthermore, other essential skills like visual-spatial abilities and reaction time were also improved by neurofeedback.
4. Lowers Anxiety
Neurofeedback can help control and alter emotional processes. Research shows that neurofeedback training aimed at improving subjects’ alpha wave activity reduced several negative emotions, including anxiety.
Neurofeedback training targeting the alpha and theta brain waves boosted confidence and enhanced mood in a study involving medical students. Theta and alpha brain wave neurofeedback reportedly lowered stress and performance anxiety in singers, musicians, and dancers.
Anxiety and stress are huge productivity killers and can massively impact the mental performance of athletes and celebrities. Neurofeedback helps curb these intense emotions and heighten overall mental performance.
5. Could Help With Depression
Several studies reveal that neurofeedback targeting the alpha brain waves produced in the frontal cortex has vast potential in treating depression by reducing anxiety and boosting moods of individuals.
Hemodynamic (HEG) neurofeedback (that helps control blood flow in particular brain regions) is quite effective in treating depression by stimulating responses to positive memory fragments present in the limbic system (a vital brain network responsible for regulating and processing emotions).
Additionally, a controlled study involving 10 depressed people concluded that neurofeedback helps slow down the brain’s responses to negative information. As a result, their depression symptoms got alleviated.
6. Mental Performance
Research shows that the base cause for several disorders is a specific brain function dysregulation. If the brain is not able to regulate itself properly a host of symptoms can arise, anxiety, trouble sleeping, difficulty with focus and attention and more. The objective of a neurofeedback training session revolves around training the brain towards optimal function allowing individuals to self-regulate.
Research has shown that after a string of neurofeedback sessions, the brain tends to adopt the improved function and the symptoms of disorders diminish.
Enhance mental performance and attain peak performance. Since brain activity is the major contributor to performance, understanding it and training it can help attain optimum results.
Neurofeedback by Elite Performers
Neurofeedback is becoming mainstream and it is being used all over the world by Olympic athletes, colleges and universities and high-profile celebrities who express the impact it’s had on their careers and performance.
Tony Robbins is a self-help king who has trained athletes, politicians, and organizations attain exponential success. Interesting fact: Tony has also trained shooters in the US army! His books like “Unlimited Power” and “Awake the Giant Within” are best sellers.
Tony Robbins, a satisfied customer of the Biocybernaut Institute, is reportedly enjoying the benefits of neurofeedback. James Hardt, a renowned psychologist, has been researching the likes of neurofeedback since the 1980s. His company, the Biocybernaut Institute, claims that the week retreat package they offer imparts the benefits and wellness of 20 years of meditation.
"Tony Robbins' testimonial reveals that his multitasking abilities have skyrocketed"
Fast forward into the present, and Tony Robbins' testimonial reveals that his multitasking abilities have skyrocketed. He can visualize two different tasks with utmost accuracy. Drafting an email and conversing with a person are both possible without any compromise in quality.
The dynamic American volleyball duo of Kerri Walsh-Jennings and Misty May-Treanor dominated the sport for over a decade. They clinched the gold medals at both the 2004 and the 2008 Summer Olympics. However, the pair entered the 2012 Olympics in London as a third-seeded team. It was quite usual, especially after having excelled at the previous two Olympics outings.
"The data generated helped teach herself how to suppress the brain waves that give rise to low"
Ms. Jennings felt her joints become loose and muscles stretched out as a result of her pregnancies. Her sleep took a toll and also did her energy levels. Looking to change things, Kerri signed up for a neurofeedback program in LA-based Neurotopia. Her testimonial revealed that neurofeedback helped her stay calm in pressure moments. Moreover, the data generated from her brain waves helped teach herself how to suppress the brain waves that give rise to low performance. Additionally, she learned to increase the brain waves associated with peak brain performance. Deservingly, the duo went on to win the London Olympics as well, for a third consecutive time.
NBA Clippers’ star Chris Kaman reportedly got misdiagnosed with ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Kaman partnered up with Royer and Neurofeedback technology. During his sessions, he found ways to regulate his brain waves and stay calm during crunch moments in his game.
"He found ways to regulate his brain waves and stay calm during crunch moments in his game"
As a result, Kaman played with a cool head and made better decisions during his games. He averaged at a whopping 17.9 points per game in the 2008 NBA season. Kaman attributed his new found form to neurofeedback training and the underlying peak performance attaining benefits.
Dr. Royer from the neurofeedback company figured out that the ADHD was a false call. Interestingly, Kaman's brain was found to be working too fast, as opposed to the too slow claims his ADHD diagnosis revealed.

Race Team Owner’s observations of Crew Chief going through the Mental Edge Fitness program
MEFS cognitive training has really improved my ability to focus and retain information in my new position. I started the training at the same time I started my new job, which includes scheduling for the manufacture of large machines taking upwards of at least 1000 parts. I have been able to catch on quickly to their methods, even though there is a lot of information being delivered simultaneously with a sense of urgency. I am grateful to Tracy for her help in improving my performance in my career. In addition, I chose the premium package in which I get a massage each month which is helping me with my physical performance. I am very happy with my results and am so glad I had this opportunity.
Hi, my name is Maddie Essen the MEF- yoga program has helped me tremendously. I started doing yoga when I was feeling distracted and felt it hard to focus on schoolwork. The class had just the right amount of challenge. The MEF-yoga instructor, Chelisa taught me how to eliminate distractions with breathing, balancing and stretching exercises. I came out of each class feeling very relaxed and refreshed. I noticed almost immediately that I was finding it easier to fulfill my school obligations without getting so stressed.
Maddie E. (Youth Mental Edge Fitness Program)
Mental Edge fitness solutions brain training gives me the edge I need to stay focused throughout the day and has dramatically increased the quality of sleep I get.
Mental Edge Fitness has awakened my mind-body connection like never before. The program has helped lower my resting heart rate substantially and I am now able to consciously recover to baseline much faster during high-intensity interval training. I’m still a bit of a klutz, but subjectively I see improvement in balance and coordination. However, for me the greatest discovery the program has led me to, is that the mind can create an idea or goal that the body can translate into superior performance. I’m excited to continue the program and see what else I can achieve.
I really like the combination of Mental Edge Fitness Yoga and brain training. I feel more competitive in all areas of my life. I am more focused and have greater clarity. I am continuing to gain strength, flexibility, and balance both physically and mentally through this program. Everyone there is positive and encouraging. Thanks, Mental Edge Fitness Solutions!
I feel great! More relaxed and better able to let the small things go. My sleep is no longer interrupted by my to-do list. I am pulled in several directions daily and the need to switch gears without delay is huge. Since being part of the Mental Edge Fitness program, I can do that much more efficiently. Tracy and her team are a huge value to our organization.
Race Team Owner
Tracy at Mental Edge Fitness Solutions is great! She is such a positive, happy person to work with. Her program at Mental Edge is fantastic! As a busy working mom with three teenagers and a business on the side, I need to be performing at my best. MEFS has helped to increase my focus, mental stamina, and energy. I look forward to my sessions at Mental Edge and have been so pleased with my progress during the program.
My experience with Mental Edge Fitness Neurofeedback has been a life changing one. I have been able to learn so many things that have helped with my performance over the years. Before I started working with neurofeedback I found it difficult to stay focused in competition when the environment got difficult or nerve wracking. However, I noticed that as I began to work with neurofeedback more, I was able to keep myself focused on the here and the now, which allowed me to make moves faster and stay on top of the constantly changing conditions. When I was put in a situation where one shot would either win or lose a match, I was able to step back and use what I learned through my work with my neurofeedback to keep myself calm, focused, and relaxed, in order to make the best shot that I could.
Caroline T. (Youth Mental Edge Fitness Program)
These training experiences taught me how to recognize my ability to reach, maintain, and direct a certain level of focus. Once I learned to balance this level of focus, I was encouraged to learn how to harmonize this focus with the desired intent to achieve results. Mental Edge Fitness's brain training is a powerful training method. I began to notice such results the more I learned to balance the energy of focus and intent, regardless of any outside pressures or distractions. I was not experienced in yoga, yet I chose to apply what I had learned during brain training in order to grow mentally and physically. I am now able to harness and direct these energies to attain significant results. Mental Edge Fitness's yoga and brain training services to be a significant form of growth for all walks of life due to their abilities to meet people where they are, instead of where they feel they should be.
Kwency V. (Youth Mental Edge Fitness Program)
Focused. Attentive. Productive. Since I have been brain training at Mental Edge Fitness, I have experienced better focus and productivity. When I wake up I’m extremely refreshed. I used to need five alarms to wake up, but now I just need two. During my workday, I am more focused on projects and productive.
I was definitely excited to experience the power of neurofeedback since I had heard about it for decades, but was unaware of how it could be used for productivity until now. I could feel after a few sessions my anxiousness subside when I had an important task to complete with time constraints. I usually had a hard time sitting down to focus because I would normally be so focused on the time constraint, but through this program, I have about 80% less resistance and my thoughts are clearer because I can just relax and focus on the task at hand, which saves me a lot of time!! I also went through the Mind-Body program, which really made me feel whole and connected with my mind and body. I'm able to sleep better and just be more productive all around in every area of my life!!
I've been working with Mental Edge Fitness for several months, and I absolutely love what the brain training exercises have done for me. I've found Tracy and her team to be professional, knowledgeable, and I've been able to work through several difficult situations recently by applying some of the techniques I've learned. Sleeping, focusing on the task at hand, performing under pressure, and completing multiple tasks at once are some of the things I have improved on since starting the program. I truly look forward to every visit and session.
