‘He’s Pathetic’

Two weeks ago, a troll found his way into one of the comments sections for our Ripped Dads ad.

He made some kind of comment about our guy GL being pathetic and having to ‘diet’.  And then some other guys jumped on him and ironically, the troll started accusing them of being trolls.  Ha!

I normally don’t reply back because it’s a complete waste of energy.  This time, however, I simply asked the question: ‘How is this pathetic?  He has lost 75 pounds and counting and feels great?’ Crickets….

Some people will always look to critique and criticize and others will look for inspiration in every situation.

If GL listened to all the negative chatter from others as he began this journey or heck, even the negative chatter in his own head, he would never have gotten started.

See, even trolls can teach us lessons.

Casey Became a Better Husband and Father

Casey and I grew up playing basketball and baseball together since we were 9 years old.

It has been a joy to have him as a friend and watch what type of leader he has grown into as a head football Coach and more importantly what type of man he has become for his family.

In this one minute video, Casey gives you a glimpse of some of the transformations he has made since training with us at Newell Strength:

 

 

Watch this and think about how fitness can inspire other areas of your life.  Remember, the body is just one side of the triangle.

Water and Walks

When I resigned from teaching a little over 6 years ago, my brain tried to trick me into believing it was a life or death situation.

I’m still living, so I guess it wasn’t really life or death and perhaps all the fear you are facing isn’t real, more on that in an upcoming podcast.

In today’s episode, I discuss water and walks and how these two simple things can help you build confidence and momentum.

Sometimes the hardest thing is to actually just sit down and start ‘the work’, once you sit, the work itself usually isn’t that hard.

Here are a few simple ways to get started with your momentum building: http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/

Pay Peanuts, Get Monkeys

Roughly 9 years ago, when Devon and I were a new couple that had been dating for about a half year, we went down to one of her friend’s wedding in the Baltimore area.

For some reason, we got the cheapest motel room around.

To say that she was on edge and that I was on high alert would be putting it mildly.

We got what we paid for: uncertainty, uncleanliness, not a great environment, and the list goes on.

I always chuckle when people tell me that Newell Strength is too expensive, but I get it. Most people are looking at it through the lense of what Globo Gyms charge, not realizing that they should be looking at what they would get with us in terms of unlimited personal Coaching and a world class culture.

Recently we had a ‘competitor’ run an ad that looked awfully familiar but marketing their cheap price, ha! Have at it!

You get what you pay for.

At Newell Strength, we are reassuringly expensive:)

What Came First?

Last week, the Professor dropped another knowledge nugget in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class.

He was speaking of botanics and how the apple seed knows it wants to be an apple but it has to spring from the tree with roots.

The roots are the lifeblood of the apple.  If all goes well, the tree will grow and then an apple or quite a few will spring forward.

The apple seed has an infinite intelligence.

It’s okay to know the end result and work backwards, until you arrive at step 1, which is the apple seed taking root in the ground.

Everything can be used as a tool for your transformation if you choose it to be.

Are You a Human Doing?

Years ago, probably 16 of them or so, I remember one of the cooks at my dad’s restaurant pulling me aside to tell me he knew I would go on to impact a lot of people.

It wasn’t the first time someone had told me that, but it did strike me as odd since at the time I was just competing in bodybuilding and working as a waiter.

Looking back on it, people like Mark (the cook), saw how I did everything the same way, with energy, focus and passion.  Dealing with people, my nutrition, my training and so on.

I tell you this not to toot my horn but because it is a good illustration that we are human BEINGS, not human DOINGS.

Don’t get caught up in your to do lists and just being busy all the time.  Why not make a ‘who you want to be’ list?

There is more to life than simply increasing the speed of it.

Systems Trump Goals

Tomorrow, I am putting on a workshop for the clients of Newell Strength.  The topic: goal setting.

But I don’t teach it in the way that most people think of goals.

Think about it, are people’s percentage of reaching goals positive or negative?

Negative and that’s because they don’t understand the mechanics of a goal.

In today’s podcast, I dive in and deliver 11 minutes of goal oriented wisdom.

You Should Never Do This..

A few weeks ago I had the rare chance to wear a necktie.

We were down at our friend’s wedding in Florida and that meant it was time for me to get all snazzy for Suzy.

When we came back, I decided that I should wash the tie for one reason or another.  And then, I put it in the drier.

Now, I am not sure which did more damage, but let’s just say that the tie now looks like a 3-foot long twizzler.

I am not a dry-cleaner or expert by any means when it comes to cleaning fancy clothes.

Thus, I should not try to clean them.

Just as you shouldn’t try to write your own fitness plan to address all the things you may need to work on (hint, fat loss isn’t the only thing) nor should you try to hold yourself accountable, especially if you have tried and failed, tried and failed.

That’s where we can help.  Just reply to this email and I’ll be in touch to see how we can help.

Consistency or Convenience?

Consistency, convenience and commitment.

Out of these 3 words, which one doesn’t belong?

If you said convenience, you were right.

The key to success is being committed to consistency.

Sometimes, the last thing I want to do is sit down to write 1,000 words, but it doesn’t matter because I committed to being consistent.

Now, if you are only doing things when you feel like it or the mood is right, aka when they are convenient, then guess what?

You are going to get convenient results.

That’s the way most people live.  But you aren’t most people.

If you would like to find out more about the mindset of commitment, just reply with ‘commit’ and I will help you out.
