Why Kaizen Men

The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
      – Albert Einstein

It follows then that the better we understand and transform ourselves, the greater capacity we have to understand and transform the planet.

My name is Andrew Fraser, and I’m an entrepreneur, yoga instructor, educator and storyteller. I am an avid reader, a lifelong student, and haven’t watched TV since 2008. In the last twenty years I have traveled, lived and worked in over 25 countries, held roughly 30 different professions, and had the good fortune of learning from many extraordinary mentors. Life has taught me more lessons than I can enumerate here, but perhaps three of my most important takeaways are these:  I believe that food is the best medicine, that recreation is one of the best forms of education, and that mindfulness is the key to happiness. The mission of Kaizen Men is to share the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

I am committed to growing a global tribe of healthy and mindful men that are creating change for better on the planet.  I believe that if we are to be the change we wish to see in the world, it begins with taking better care of ourselves. The intention of Kaizen Men is to empower men to be the drivers of this positive change by first managing their own wellbeing; mentally, physically, and nutritionally. By learning to implement small, daily changes repeated consistently over time, we can learn to eat better, feel better and ultimately do better. In this way, we can collectively show up as the partners, fathers, teachers, professionals, and leaders that leave this world better than we found it. The world needs more of us.

When not writing or teaching, you can find me in my home state of Colorado pursuing my other passions: flowing on my yoga mat, camping with my fiancee, Aubrey, rock climbing, snowboarding, mountaineering and wingsuit skydiving.
