Alphabet Soup

10 years ago, I was on a quest to become the greatest strength Coach of all time.

I was rapidly investing in courses, Coaches, seminars, books and dvds.

And I wouldn’t change that for anything, it molded me into who I’ve become currently.

It got to the point that I had doctors asking me for advice on things concerning the body (some still do), which is great and I only point that out to tell you the level of knowledge I acquired.

I had some 20-odd letters after my name, the alphabet soup, which included exclusive certifications, secondary schooling and on and on.

I have let all but my master’s degree expire (because once you have that, you have it for good).

Why?

Because they didn’t mean anything.  Over the years, as I matured as a person, I realized that simplifying all that I knew was where the true mastery was.

If you can’t explain concepts to a third grader (with short attention spans, with their level of vocabulary and then having them apply what you taught), then you haven’t mastered it and I would argue that you have a menial understanding of the subject matter.

Be careful of all the ‘fake fitness experts’ out there.  They are a dime a dozen

Member Showcase: Andrew Tina

We are super proud of Andrew and he was recently awarded the member of the month for our Flemington location.

Andrew reached out to us before we even opened our second location in Flemington.  Apparently he had been following along and had high interest because of a wake-up call he had while Coaching youth football.

Andrew started at Newell Strength in the third week in September and has since lost over 60 pounds!  All while improving his attitude, energy levels, mobility and strength levels.

Andrew is a walking inspiration.

Check him out here, in his owns words.

How to Meditate

The main thing that I’ve noticed over the years is that people are very quick to put their ‘fun’ time and meditation time on the back burner, always thinking that they will get to it someday.

Well, that someday is now.  Yes, meditation is that important.

I believe you haven’t bought in yet because you aren’t clear on what meditation really is and how to do it.

There are a lot of misconceptions about meditation, such as having to sit in a certain position and empty your mind of thoughts; both of which are totally untrue!

In today’s episode, I explain why I believe in meditation and a few simple meditations that I practice personally.

A Camel in the Winter

A few weeks ago, Devon booked us an overnight trip to Camelback resort so she could take Braxton skiing for the first time.

I like the few times I’ve been skiing, but grew up always playing basketball in the winter months so skiing was out.

Anyhow, there was a water park and cool arcade for the boys to play within too.

It’s funny how over the years I’ve gone from being concerned with how I looked at the pool to how my energy is.

I think of things like:
-It’s great to be able to keep up with the boys
-It’s awesome that I have functional dad strength and can carry both boys with a bag thrown over my shoulder too
-I love being alert and in the present moment, enjoying the boys and this stage of life

At no point did I concern myself with how I looked with my shirt off.

But that didn’t happen overnight. It was actually a struggle for most of my life until I started to focus on being clear about what my own personal definition of health and fitness was.

That’s one of the main things that separates Newell Strength from others; the focus on a complete mindset transformation while providing you ultimate clarity on your path.

Wax On, Wax Off

I remember watching the Karate Kid back in the mid 80’s when we lived in Michigan.

At that age, I was more pumped about the fighting and kicking butt that Daniel displayed.

As I got older, I realized there was a lot more to the movie, which is part of why it became a legendary movie.  There were lessons for any age group in it.

Mr. Miyagi, the ever-wise teacher, is what resonates most with me now.

We all need a Mr. Miyagi in our life.  Someone that can see things from a different perspective.

And, teach us.

Yet, a Mr. Miyagi will only appear when you, the student, are ready.

However, beware of the Mr. Miyagi that goes around giving unwarranted advice.  This means that you aren’t ready, if you haven’t asked and that this fake Mr. Miyagi, doesn’t understand true teaching.

Somethings to think about.  (And if you are looking for a whole team of Mr. Miyagis, then you should try us out at Newell Strength).

Your Natural State of Love

I remember back in the 4th grade, getting some heart candy and a card from my crush on Valentine’s Day.

27 years ago.

Boy, how times flies.

Well, being that it is Valentine’s Day, I wanted to drop you some thoughts about love.

Love is a natural state of being.

When we feel anger, resentment, anxiety, fear and so on, we know that we aren’t in a loving energy field.

The whole idea of being present (which is taught in every major religion), is taught because the only way we can express our full love and being is by being present.

If you have dreams, yet both hands are grasping onto the past, onto resentment and so on, then you will have no hands free to grab your dream when the opportunity strikes.

Someone asked me a recent talk I gave, ‘What if anxiety is your natural state?’

To which I replied, it’s not.

Yes, I gave her some help and literally explained the brain science behind why it’s not.  Love is your natural state of being.

We can all use a little more self-reflection, give this idea some thought today.

Member Showcase: Taylor Post

Taylor’s mom, Neva, began training with us over 3 years ago and now works within Newell Strength.

For the past couple of years, Neva was trying to get Taylor to give us a shot.

Every time a promotion or special program came up, Neva was drop some hints.

Taylor wasn’t biting.

Until this past fall….

Taylor decided to do our 6-week women’s transformation and she hasn’t looked back since.

Taylor was our January member of the month at our Hillsborough location.

Here is Taylor’s story, in her own words, in just 60 seconds.  Enjoy!

Think Small and Think For Yourself

Have you ever thought so BIG that it compelled you to take massive action and just a few weeks into it, you were drained, in freeze mode and frustrated?

I believe we’ve all been there.

Many a dream has been cut down because of this concept of thinking big and massive action.

While setting lofty targets is a great thing, you can’t hyper focus on the end result.

Instead, you must think small.  Thinking small gives you power.  Thinking small slows down time.

In today’s episode, I discuss the magic of thinking small.

He’s a Character

Two Friday’s ago, we had our first parent-teacher conference for Braxton.

Back in the day when I was a PE teacher, no one ever scheduled a conference with me, although I wish they had.

Anyhow, both teachers were telling us how much of a character he was.

Suzy and I both were giggling out loud as they relayed stories to us.

We wholeheartedly agreed that he is a character, in fact, we encourage it.

In life, so many people want to fit in, not stand out, for fear of being different.

Some people hear the term, ‘he’s a character’ and they assume it to be a bad thing.

My life has been made up of a collection of characters surrounding me. My brothers and close friends always said I seem to have a whack-pack (other characters).

When someone says, ‘You’re a character’, it’s a great thing, it means you stepped into your authentic you.

Being a character and being weird is a nature state of being. Being a character is where life gets fun.

So, I hope that as long as he is in school, we keep hearing that he is a character (and respectful and kind, which they told us too).

Kicking the Tyre Kicker to the Curb

Just last week, a new client was telling me about how much she loved the culture and community at Newell Strength.

And yes, I agreed, that is one of our top things that separates us from any other place out there.

But it didn’t happen by accident.

We’ve worked hard to repel the tyre kickers and negative nellies.

In one rare instance that a guy faked his way in, we eventually let him walk.

We simply decided that we didn’t want him infecting our culture.  When he came to me with some complaints, I smiled and said, ‘I don’t think you are a good fit for us and to be honest, we kept thinking we could help you but that was a mistake on my part’.

When I say help, I mean to help him become a more compassionate and self-aware person.

He wanted me to beg him to stay, ha, that ain’t wasn’t happening.

It was only a matter of time before the energy of the community at Newell Strength forced him out.

And there have been others that have been told NO from day one, that we wouldn’t be having them join us because of their attitudes.

We are not for everyone and we prefer it that way.

So know that here, you will always be surrounded by a positive, family-like community.

 

P.S-On Friday, the 15th (yes, the day after Valentine’s Day), we are having our next People of Fitness Night at our Hillsborough location.  Beer and pizza will be provided and it’s always a fun hangout.  You can bring anyone you’d like and you don’t have to be a member to come hang.  If you think you are coming, just reply to this email.
