"Gymnasium For The Mind is well worth the time spent for its content, community bonding, collaboration, conciseness, and cogency. It would appear that I am suggesting a 'C' rating. No way!! A+ all the way!!"

    - G.W., Carlin G. Smith Recreation Center

"After only a few weeks, I’m already much more 'mindful' of my reactions and responses to what were previously robotic responses. I came to realize that my unconscious reactions were conditioned and did not always serve me well. I now look and respond to my old triggers differently. I am actually calmer and more alert."

    - L.E., Carlin G. Smith Recreation Center
