 Just as we train our bodies for physical fitness, we can train our brains for optimal wellbeing




How it all started...

In 2010, Eric Langshur and Nate Klemp were both emerging from a period of intense stress and struggle. They met and, together, they had a radical idea: "what if we could create a cross training program for the mind, a program based in ancient wisdom and cutting edge science?"

They worked with leading researchers to design this new program. And they called it Life Cross Training (LifeXT). It's a program that went on to become the focus of their New York Times Bestselling book Start Here and to help thousands of knowledge workers build resilience and more skillfully manage their most precious resource: their attention.
