Pay Peanuts, Get Monkeys

There are many ‘copy-cat’ gyms that have come and gone over the years.

 

They make the mistake of thinking that what makes Newell Strength special and unique is the technical side of what we do.

 

And, yes, I will put our Coaches up against any crew of Coaches anywhere, they are, afterall, the most knowledgeable Coaches in the industry; it’s even more so about the community that has been created at Newell Strength.

 

That’s not something that can be copied.

 

There’s a reason the copycats charge much less than us, because you get way less.  In life, you get what you pay for.  If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

 

Is your health an expense or an investment?  Depending on how you answer that, I have just the place for you, either way….

Member Showcase: Lenny Schiro

Lenny was one of the first new members to join Newell Strength when it became an official facility back in 2011.

 

I remember having so many great conversations with Lenny, soaking up knowledge and wisdom from him any chance I had.

 

Lenny told me that training hard helped him in negotiations, it was a mentality.  That stuck with me.

 

Lenny explains his experience at Newell Strength throughout the years and how Newell Strength is different.  Check it out here:  https://youtu.be/ukU0LuyywPY

Resistance is There to Make You Stronger

When I first started lifting weights, I didn’t take it seriously.  I was lifting because my football Coach made us.

 

Then, a few years later, going into my junior year of high school, I bought in.  I did it because I wanted to do it.

 

I would spend hours, literally, in the gym.  There were times that I couldn’t lift my arms for days.

 

But you know what? I got stronger.

 

You get bigger and stronger when you lift weights that your body hasn’t been exposed to before.

 

And in life, you face resistance and obstacles to make your mind and spirit stronger.  Don’t shy away from these obstacles.

 

They are there to help you grow.

 

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I discuss that very concept.  You can take a listen here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2019/12/09/Resistance-is-There-to-Make-You-Stronger

Monday Mindset: Think Small

A few years ago I hired one of the most unique minds in the world to Coach me for 12 full months.

 

A lot of what I learned is top-secret, jedi-mind type of stuff.

 

But one of the things that I can share with you is the concept of ‘think small’.  When the Zen-Master first told me this, I thought it was very odd.

 

Then, he explained it to me.

 

‘Thinking BIG kills desire.  When you think small, you can take that small step, your brain doesn’t get overwhelmed.’

 

This tied in perfectly to Mind Map principles.  It clicked.

 

So many people THINK BIG, this time of year.  How’s that work out for them?  What if for your resolution you said something like, ‘I want to lose just one pound to start.  If I do that, I have succeeded.’

 

See how the mindset shift is completely different?

 

Think small this year and take one step at a time.

Friday Finisher: ‘I Dare and I Do’

There are many mornings and nights that I spend outside, reading and contemplating my life.

 

I get caught up in trying to figure out the ‘how’, which leads to freeze mode and anxiety at times.

 

Then, I rewind myself and realize as long as I know my why and the objective, the how will figure itself out.  Now, it doesn’t just happen, it takes tremendous amounts of energy to create and build anything in life.

 

But don’t get too caught up in the how.  You will figure it out one step at a time.

 

When I do these rewind sessions, I realize it’s about my mindset, do I believe in myself or not?  And one of the simplest mantras I  use is: ‘I can and I will.  I dare and I do!’

 

Breathe and repeat until it becomes a part of you.  Write it down and carry it  with you.

 

It’s a simple thing, but so simple that most people  will choose to overlook it.

You Cannot MultiTask

Over the past 12 years, one of the things that I have been fortunate enough to learn out of necessity, combined with how the brain works, is ‘time management’.

 

Well, you see, time management is really a misnomer, how we use our time comes down to our energy.  And our energy comes down to our attention.

 

Too  many people think they can multitask, not realizing the tremendous amount of energy they waste switching back and forth between objects.

 

Think of it this way, if you were to run 100 yards straight away or run 100 yards, but broken up between 5 yards and back, ten times, kind of like a shuttle run; which one would be harder?

 

Metabolically it’s a no-brainer, the shuttle runs will tax you  much more, even though the total distance in the same. Your brain works the same way metabolically.  Starting is the hardest part of focus or exercise.  When you constantly start and stop, you are burning precious brain fuel.

 

Stop multitasking and focus on the 1 thing that you must do first.  Simple but effective.

Member of the Month: Craig Batten

When we offer certain 6-week contests like Ripped Dads, it happens that clients believe they are just coming for the 6-weeks.  And for some, that’s all they need.

 

But Craig, after seeing the changes he was making in those 6-weeks, knew he had to continue.

 

Yes, Newell Strength ‘costs’ a lot more than other places, but in today’s video, you  can see how Craig made the decision that this was an investment that had a better ROI than anything he has ever tried.

 

Keep inspiring Craig!  You can take a look here: https://youtu.be/9wu6hR3M7uc

The Inspiring Story of Gori

I cannot tell you how proud I am of this man.

 

He came in to Newell Strength and the first time around, he didn’t succeed.

 

He came again, after a humiliating life experience and that was all the fuel for the fire that he needed.

 

In today’s episode, I talk about the remarkable turnaround this man has made in his life, let his fire light your torch today.  You can take a listen here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2019/12/02/The-Inspiring-Story-of-Gori

Mindset Monday: One Thing to Kill Overwhelm

I can remember the day, 9 and a half years ago.

 

I went into my Principal’s office for some advice.  I just needed someone to listen.

 

I had a laundry list of things to do, my thesis for my master’s, I was getting ready to open the first facility for Newell Strength and the list went on.

 

There were way too many things and BIG things, that I became frozen.  Totally not like me, but it happens to me from time to time just as it does to you.

 

The thing with overwhelm is that we are focusing on  multiple things at once.

 

We can only do 1 thing at a time though.  Multi-tasking is a myth I will blow up in another email this week.

 

So, how do we gain clarity on that one thing?  You put pen to paper.  Writing and journaling is one of the best things we can do for clarity, vision and emotional health.

 

When we put pen to paper, we bring logic and the human brain back to the table and we slow down.  We quiet the ‘noise’, the headtrash as my good friend Vince calls it.

 

Give it a try, take out a pen tonight and start to write.  Aim for a paragraph and see what happens.

The Mysterious Rice in the Salt Shaker

A few weeks ago, Devon told me that she was putting some salt into the boy’s bedroom diffuser and rice kept getting in there somehow.

 

I chuckled, because I had been putting rice into the salt shaker since it gets very humid back near the creek where we live and the salt gets clumpy.

 

It’s an old restaurant trick.

 

Devon’s mystery was solved.  Surely she knew that rice couldnt’ spontaneously appear out of nothing, right?

It’s no different than thinking muscle weighs more than fat (they weigh the same, a pound is a pound) or that thinking you can turn your body fat into muscle.

 

Pick the main goal, building muscle or losing weight, and focus on that until you  get to where you are happy and then address the other side of the coin….
