The Simple Approach to Chess Improvement
The Chess Gym training program is based on five core principles.
- Simplicity Wins: Daily focused tasks streamline your training, no more wasted time wondering what to study.
- Consistency is Key: Steady effort pays off more than occasional study. We build the habits that get you results.
- Community Support: Learn from others, teach others – at every level, we collaborate to get stronger.
- Science-Backed Training: No long and complicated study plans. Our methods are rooted in what works. Many adults do not practice their skills enough.
