Peak, the London, UK-based cognitive training platform with over 15 million global users in more than 180 countries, is launching Coach, its adaptive motivation engine that learns from a user’s performance to serve up tailored workouts to better train your brain.
Developed by neuroscientists and game experts, Peak consists of 40 unique games to challenge core cognitive skills such as mental agility, focus, problem solving, emotion control, and memory.
Coach acts like a personal trainer for the brain. It analyses the cognitive performance of a user serves up tailored workouts that make the most out of each training session. Users can choose from Coach’s best recommendations to push skills to the max. Or, play contextual workouts like Weakest Link to challenge their least polished skills.
Coach tracks users' progress using in-depth insights to keep them going when they need it most. Users can check their progress against others in their age group and their profession. They can track their progress over the entire time they've been playing.
