Pittsburgh, PA, April 25, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Today, Pittsburgh-based startup RunGRE (http://www.rungre.com), launched the first line of memory flashcards designed to be used during exercise. Growing concerns about the harmful effects on health from long hours of sitting, combined with evidence showing the powerful effects of cardiovascular exercise on memory retention, make RunGRE’s offering unique and timely.
“We didn’t evolve to sit for eight hours a day,” said Lesky. “Professionals and students alike are sitting for longer and longer hours leading to a bevy of health concerns. Research clearly indicates that memory and cognitive function is enhanced by physical activity; its time, education and fitness were combined to work with our biology, instead of against it.” RunGRE was developed to enable students to get fit while they do memory drills, which normally require sitting for hours at a time. Why not exercise your brain while exercising your body? “It’s surprising to realize how naturally focused and receptive one is to memorizing while doing cardio exercise,” said Lesky.
RunGRE further helps those with a busy lifestyle to incorporate studying for this important exam into their already packed day. Due to early interest from fitness enthusiasts and those in the ADHD community, Lesky is currently in the process of developing flashcard sets for language learning, music and other fields that require significant memorization for proficiency. RunGRE is currently priced at $12.99.
