The Fitter Body Fitter Brain infographic explains how regular exercise stimulates and enhances brain performance. If you need more incentive to hit the gym, it's great to know that your efforts are being rewarded two-fold as working your body also helps your brain function better.

Pertaining to participants as young as elementary school students, studies have shown that 40 minutes of daily exercise had an impact of raising children’s IQ scores by 3.8 points. The same amount of exercise results in a higher letter grade for 18-year-olds, who are therefore more likely to go onto higher education and join the workforce.

Not just for students, this infographic demonstrates the power regular exercise can have when it comes to work in the office, making you 15% more efficient.
