Kaizen Skills: Fitness for Your Life


CLT Start

“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.)

All forms of endurance-based exercise are sensory immersive experiences.  Beyond maintaining physical health, consistent and mindful exercise is an effective empowering path to harmony, ease and brilliance for our lives.


“Shane Eversfield, I love this kaizen mindset!”
– Wayne Kurtz, Triple-Deca Iron Triathlon Finisher (30 Ironmans in 30 days)

Mindfulness is mind fitness.  Mind fitness is the foundation of mastery.  Kaizen-durance empowers people of all ages and physical abilities to use endurance-based exercise as a viable practice for developing and strengthening mind fitness to pursue mastery in every area of your life.

To live healthy, master the Fitness Cycle. It has three phases: Stress, recovery, adaptation.  All growth occurs through this cycle – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.  

Like it or not, stress is the vector for growth.  We pursue mastery by developing a healthy relationship with stress.  

Problem:  “I can’t recover from stress.  My health is compromised.”

Solution: Transform your relationship with stress.  Kaizen-durance empowers you to do this.

Exercise encourages us to Be Here Now.  Truthfully, there is no place else you can be but here and now.  Mind fitness is your capacity to invest and engage all facets of your attention with what is arising here and now.  

Striving for brilliance?  Brilliance requires multi-faceted attention – mind fitness.

Use this resource to heal and empower yourself, in sport and in life.  This won’t require any more of your time.

Finesse is stronger than force.  – Zenman
