Join Barry as he learns how to enhance his cognitive skills


Are you or someone you love wanting to keep your brain as sharp as possible for as long as possible? Which simple moves can you layer into your workouts to help your memory, mental processing speed and cognition?

Join Kymberly as she shares practical information as well as takes Barry through some moves to enhance his cognitive skills. Kymberly is presenting the science supported “Train your Brain” program for Ranch guests this week.


Kymberly Williams-Evans Ph.D. (ABD) has taught fitness to more than 40,000 participants on 4 continents in 4 languages for almost 4 decades. Her teaching career spans land, sea, and airwaves and started in the first aerobics studio in Europe.

Former faculty at University of California, Santa Barbara in both the Dept of Exercise and Sports Studies and English, she specializes in active older adult and baby boomer group exercise. Kymberly holds both group instruction and Senior Specialty certification through the American Council on Exercise (ACE), earned the Functional Aging Specialist certification, and is a charter member of the 2020-21 AgeWell Collective.

Called an “edu-tainer,” based on rumors that she brings humor to her classes, Kymberly is also a prolific fitness writer, three-time finalist as Fitness Director of the Year for an international professional association (IDEA), and three-time National Aerobic Championship Regional Gold Medalist. When not teaching classes in her hometown of Santa Barbara, CA you can find her at Rancho la Puerta, where she has been guest instructing since 1985.

Listening, expressing, acknowledging, embracing, and leaning into each other are some of the basic tenets by which we define The Ranch’s existence. With “Voices of The Ranch,” our resolve is to bring you thought provoking and moving conversations to help us examine our beliefs and our opportunities, reaffirm our shared humanity and see how we can become better allies, standing for justice and compassion.

These may be uncomfortable and challenging, but also insightful, and inspiring. We can’t promise how they will turn out; we can promise that we won’t let fear get in the way of our mission to be a place for healing and transformation.
