“If you are depressed, you are living in the past.

If you are anxious, you are living in the future.

If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” – Lao Tzu (circa. 510 B.C.)

Physical exercise and endurance training are sensory immersive experiences.  Beyond maintaining physical health, consistent and mindful exercise is a very effective path to harmony, ease and peace for our lives.

Why functional strength?

Neuromuscular recruitment: Increased strength through higher activation of the muscle you already have.  No need to bulk up.  Lean out and maximize the function of what you already have.

Mobility: The ideal combination of flexibility (range of motion) and stability (alignment and control).  Mobility is essential for PAGES technique: Precise, Aligned, Graceful, Efficient, Seamless technique

Why mindfulness?

A highly functional and alert mind is essential for effective training and peak performance.  With a kaizen mind, you get more out of every training session.  You get brilliance.

Carry this into every area of your life – including your relationships and family, and your occupation – as well as sports.  Experience and share brilliance – every day, all day.
