Kaizen-durance Book Series

Athletes decline with age.  Artists improve.

coverThe Kaizen-durance book series presents a profound paradigm shift for endurance athletes and coaches. Current science, coaching and training methods focus on slowing the inevitable decline of aerobic capacity. (That’s a diminishing resource for each and every one of us.) Very few in the global endurance athletic community are tapping into and developing the most promising resource that is infinitely available to every one us – regardless of age, genetics, education, etc.



To put it in millennial terms, Kaizen-durance is your “HACK”.

What are people saying?

Here’s an excerpt from a review by Dr. Andrew Getzin, Team Physician for USA Triathlon:

Kaizen-Durance guides the endurance athlete to focus not just on “hitting the numbers”, but on what is happening HERE and NOW – in your body. 

[Shane Eversfield] explains the vast potential of neural training to connect the brain with the intelligence of the body – a phenomenon he calls “Kinetic Intelligence”, truly the wisdom of the aging athlete.   With KI, we can move through the water and over land more efficiently.

About the Author

Shane Eversfield of Ithaca, sets off on the bike while competing in the intermediate distance race Sunday morning at the Cayuga Lake Triathlon at Taughannock Falls State Park.

With a degree in Modern Dance and 40 years of deep practice in T’ai Chi, author Shane Eversfield (a.k.a. “Zenman”) began applying his “kinetic intelligence” to triathlon while living in Kona, Hawaii in November, 1998. Hawaii Ironman 1999 was his third triathlon. As an athlete, author, educator, artist and coach, he has earned the respect of many endurance athletes and coaches the world over.

Eversfield is a Total Immersion Swim Master Coach (one of ten worldwide). He founded and developed the methodology and content for Zendurance Cycling – endorsed by ChiRunning Founder Danny Dreyer, and Total Immersion Swim Founder Terry Laughlin. He teaches over 200 classes and clinics every year in swimming, cycling, running and Kaizen Skills for Athletes. He has trained and educated coaches and athletes in the US, Europe and Asia.

Now 60 years young, he continues his personal Kaizen path and the cultivation of kinetic intelligence. He completes multi-day triathlons and ultra running events each year and continues to quietly slip past his perceived limits. Zenman regards himself as a modern-day traditional martial artist – deeply committed to the craft of mindful movement – rather than an as athlete.

He lives, trains and teaches extensively in Ithaca, New York.
