I Know How You Feel

Yup, that’s me in 2011, just a few months into the opening of the first Newell Strength facility.

The funny thing is, I was eating properly and training, yet, when Devon snapped these pictures of me, I was shocked!

You see, I was stressed and not sleeping (by choice).  I was the only one in the business, which meant I would train people at [5:30] AM, head right to school to teach all day and then back to NS to Coach until 9pm, every single night.

The very real reality of keeping the pedal to the metal resulted in poor health and one of the most out of shape periods of my life.

The thing was not the thing (eating properly and training).

I know you feel if this is you.

Doing everything right according to the textbooks, yet, going downhill.  Until you realize that a healthy body is much, much more than a simple math equation, you will continue to struggle.

These Guys Are Just Like You

In this week’s member showcase, I wanted to highlight some of the men and dads that train with us at Newell Strength.

We just started up the newest round of Ripped Dads which made me think of this video, in which I wrote a short poem as the voiceover.

I hope you enjoy it and find a spark of inspiration within it!

You can take a quick watch here

Have You Happiness?

Ever since I was a little boy, I wondered what the purpose of life was.

As I got older, I realized that happiness is the main driver of life.  And it’s not as simple as telling you to just think positive thoughts.

In today’s episode, I discuss happiness, what it is, where it comes from and how you can increase your level of it.

‘I Need To Get In Shape First’

Since we opened our first facility 8 years ago, each year, I’ve heard clients tell me that their friend or spouse really wanted to check us out, but that they needed to get in shape first, according to the third party.

 

At first, this confused me, but after I began to really learn about the brain, I understood.  People fear judgment.  It is one of the most threatening things to the human brain.

 

Just last week, I posted an article about a lady at a Globo Gym that was trying to start her new year out right, by going to the gym and she had three millennial hecklers that forced her to tears.

 

Luckily, a stand up citizen came to her rescue.

 

Usually, our worst fears don’t actually happen.  In that case, for that woman, it did happen.

 

When you are starting out on your fitness journey this year, you must take into account the community with which you are entering.

 

A family like community, like we have at Newell Strength, will dramatically reduce your fears, thus, allowing you to put all your mental and emotional energy into your physical transformation.

Head Trainer and Suzy Caught, Red Handed!

About a month ago, I was heading over to the Flemington location for a meeting with Devon and Dana.

When I arrived, the joint looked empty. I went in through one of the doors and looked around, but didn’t see any signs of anyone.

As I continued to walk around, I heard groaning and moaning coming from behind the closed, office door.

It sounds like….at least two people having some fun and pleasure.

So, I ripped the door open and lo and behold….

Coach Mike and Suzy Homemaker were going to town….

With a dozen donuts from D and D.

Get your mind out of the gutter.

The point is, yes, we ‘get it’.  Fitness isn’t supposed to BE your life, its supposed to enhance your life.

The team at Newell Strength eats burgers, fries, donuts and yes, we even drink beer.

What does this mean?  It means complete understanding of you, the trainee.

‘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.
