About NESTRE

NESTRE stands for NEuro-STREngth

NESTRE Health & Performance is a mental and cognitive strength training and solutions company, that leverages neuroscience and AI/Machine Learning technology to personalize how people get better, feel better, perform better. 

NESTRE Health & Performance was founded in Orlando, FL, in 2018 by Dr. Tommy Shavers and later joined by co-founder and Chief Innovative Health & Performance Officer, Julius Thomas. Dr. Shavers created a model of self-recovery and successfully healed himself from decade-long mental and cognitive impairment and decline after suffering career-ending concussions as a collegiate football player. Once he achieved what doctors deemed impossible, he aimed to create an efficient and scalable model to help others get better in the areas of brain health, mental wellness, and human performance. Dr. Shavers and the team at NESTRE are on a mission to change the narrative around mental health and cognitive performance and build a better world with the human in mind.  

This is NESTRE

The word NESTRE (NE-STRE) has several meanings that exemplify who we are and what we do.  

NESTRE is Neuroplasticity Strength Training. NESTRE is the first Neuro-STREngth company to leverage the science of neuroplasticity, which states that the brain can change and is in a constant state of changing, learning, responding, and adapting. This also means we are able to intentionally strengthen, maintain, and recover our mental and cognitive capacity for overall better health, wellness, and performance. At NESTRE, you’ll tap into your own ability to heal, recover, and strengthen yourself both mentally and cognitively.  

NESTRE is New Strength Training. For so long we have focused on training from the neck down when all along the most important training we need is from the neck up. Mental and cognitive fitness and strength training increase your ability to access your health, wellness, talent, and performance potential in real-time and when it matters most. 

NESTRE is our strength. The word NESTRE is derived from the Latin origin nostra meaning ours, of ours, the thing belonging to us.  

NESTRE’s customizable and non-invasive solutions are successfully utilized by elite performers including NFL athletes and coaches, medical professionals, and executives.  

Welcome to The Science of Better.
