“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)

Life Fitness?

Life Fitness is your capacity to respond brilliantly to the challenges that are arising here and now – in any area of your life.  In this course, we identify and strengthen the skills for life fitness.  The intrinsic benefits are profound.  But they are difficult to describe and promote.

Ultimately, the foundation of life fitness is your relationship with stress.

Stress: Enemy or Ally?

Each of us encounters stress every day: Rich or poor, young or old, active or sedentary, we can not avoid it.

Stress affects our health – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually.  It can run us down and make us ill, regardless of physical strength.  However…

As we exercise and train for physical fitness, each of us can develop empowering skills to transform stress from a liability to an asset, from a lethal enemy to a trusted ally.  All of this with: 

  • No additional time commitment.
  • No compromise to your training.
  • Any current fitness level.

This is the most empowering program I offer.  It is the essence of my craft in sport and in life, my life’s work.” – Shane Eversfield

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.
