NeuroActive Fitness was founded in 2015 by Dr. Adam Bruene. 

When we say "whatever you do, do it better" we take that to heart, and expect the same of ourselves.  We believe that it is time for physical medicine to evolve, and want to be that evolution.  


Dr. Bruene earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2009 from the National University of Health Sciences. There he developed a healthy craving for exploring research and developing an improved treatment strategy.  Very quickly he began to realize that typical or standard chiropractic treatments or therapies were not producing long lasting improvements in many patients.  He identified the shortcoming as a lack of neurological change in patients.  Constantly stretching the same muscles without change to the posture, always needing to manipulate the same joints each visit, etc just wasn't getting the job done.  Studying the research, he was able to develop a more comprehensive strategy that included the neurology.  He began to see the need for stretching or manipulation decrease significantly.  Now, treating patients fewer times and focusing on active strategies that the patients could perform themselves was producing long-lasting or even permanent solutions. 

Then, the light bulb went off.  "I'm essentially sitting around waiting for people to hurt themselves, so that I can teach them now to not hurt themselves." It was completely backwards.  What would be better, to prevent cancer, or wait for it to manifest and then treat it? So NeuroActive Fitness was born.  A neurological pre-habilitation strategy that fits seamlessly with whatever it is you're already doing, and can help prevent injury while also improving athletic performance.  What's not to love?

    NeuroActive Fitness is an eclectic and ever-evolving fitness program that is focused on neurological changes which produce physical changes.  The name is very literal.  A "neuroactive" substance or activity is one which stimulates neural tissue.  "Active" is stressed too, because the goal is to give you active things that you can do for yourself to produce these changes.  Thus, NeuroActive Fitness is an active program which stimulates neural tissue to create ideal movement.   

    A primary component of NeuroActive Fitness works with the principles of developmental neurology.  Essentially, we re-run the software in your brain that got you upright and walking with the ideal movement patterns in your early life.  The program is already in there, we just need to boot it up again. It can improve virtually all aspects of athletic performance, so whatever you do...do it better! It is not an alternative program that will be used to replace what you're currently doing, it incorporates seamlessly into whatever sport or activity you currently enjoy.  If you are a human performing an activity that involves movement, then this program applies to you.  If you are not a human, but are reading this and understand it, we would love to meet you anyway.
