The Exercise Design Lab

The Exercise Design Lab (EDL) is an inviting and inclusive training studio that offers novel and proven strategies to deliver the promise of exercise to the communities on Mount Desert Island, Maine and people around the globe. The EDL's signature training system is called Neuro-Logic Training: exercise designed from the nervous system's point of view. It is oriented around the intersection of exercise mechanics and the neurosciences.  This interdisciplinary  approach to exercise creates client-specific solutions to attain and maintain mental and physical health. Neuro-Logic Training makes regular participation compelling to more people, while decreasing the incidence and risk of musculoskeletal injury.


How was Neuro-Logic Training developed?

Exercise scientists have shown that achieving the benefits of exercise depends on specific changes in the neuromuscular system. Without these changes, exercise is a frustrating and often futile endeavor. Jacques and his colleagues from around the country scoured the literature to find the best ways to stimulate the necessary changes in the neuromuscular system. The research and years of investigation led to the development of Neuro-Logic Training (N-LT): a fully customized, interdisciplinary exercise process that strategically enhances the performance of the neuromuscular system. N-LT is at the core of the programs that Jacques designs to help his clients get what they want from their body and mind.
