NOTE FROM FOUNDER
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Kayezen and our community.
Kayezen was started with a simple goal: To help people continuously improve and build resilience at any stage of life.
I fractured a disc in my back when I used a squat machine with too much weight. While going through physical therapy to overcome the injury, I was prescribed exercises using mainly tubes and bands. Through this experience I learned about the extensive benefits of elastic resistance for continuously improving range of motion strength and endurance and its wide ranging applications for rehab, fitness and sports performance. It took me six months to fully recover and I transitioned to using tubes and bands for the majority of my strength workouts in the gym, at home, outside and when traveling.
While I was learning about the benefits of elastic resistance, I also saw a number of ways existing technology needed to be improved. Specifically, the need to reduce the time required to set-up exercises, change resistance levels and swap accessories. To develop our next generation resistance tube system, we built a great team with industry veterans, conducted extensive customer discovery and dedicated five years to prototyping, testing and refining Kayezen’s patented VECTOR dial-in resistance systems.
Building Our Community
Once our VECTORS were ready for field testing, we began to partner with some of the leading minds in sports performance, physical therapy and personal training to develop and share a growing library of exercises with our community. And this really is the “magic” to our VECTOR systems; we make using resistance tubes and bands much easier and faster and this enables our community of thought leaders to develop new exercises and incorporate ones that were previously too time consuming or complex to set up.
Today our VECTOR systems offer hundreds of exercise options and have been purchased by pro and amateur athletes, teams in all four leagues(NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL), Division 1 schools, training environments, and physical therapy clinics that range from sports-related injury to neurological speciality practices.
The Kayezen Mindset
The Kayezen team is here to help build your overall resilience with new exercises that offer new challenges so you can perform with confidence at a higher level everyday and be better prepared for any obstacles or set-backs you may face.
I know we were all hoping to be through the Covid crisis by now. We still face months of significant, often heart-breaking challenges. But these challenging times also give us an opportunity to refocus on what matters, to build our physical and mental resilience so we can come together and be there for all the people that count on us. Now, and after we pull through this crisis.
Stay healthy, stay strong, and help others in need. For anyone in a position to lead, now is the time to step up, find that extra gear and be the example.
