“Mental Workout is at the 
forefront of the therapist-in-an-app movement (ther-app-y??)”

Why we created Mental Workout

Two global movements - that accelerated back in the 80s - have defined the actions we've all taken to improve our health and performance ever since, namely the diet and exercise movements. The problem is we have largely ignored the "mental side" of our lives! At Mental Workout, we think that in order to feel good and perform well, it's essential we prioritize “mental performance and well-being” side by side with efforts to improve health and wellness through healthy eating habits and regular exercise.

Our focus is now on corporate well-being

Today, our focus is on improving employee performance and well-being. On the employees’ terms! Our solutions can be seamlessly scaled to businesses of any size and geographic location, and we can deliver 100% digital solutions or integrated solutions, combining multiple components. At the heart of the Mental Workout experience is the Mental Workout app for iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, and PC, giving anyone access to advice and tools at their fingertips. Mental Workout cover sleep, mindfulness, and relationships, and work with experts who are undeniably some of the best in their respective fields.
