Pay for Peanuts, You Get Peanuts

Recently, we had a prospect inquire about training.  

 

He was shocked that we were so ‘expensive’.  

 

He griped that Gold’s was running a 3 month special for $99. 

 

Ha!  Here’s what you get at a big box gym:

 

-No attention, little if any guidance

 

-A plethora of personal trainers that want you to ‘grind’ and cut out carbs for the rest of your life, while of course charging you an arm and a leg for those extra sessions and advice

 

-A bunch of machines that you don’t know how to use and that have no real world application

 

-Judgmental stares from the meatheads and cardio queens that have made the fitness their life, rather than using fitness to enhance their life

 

-If that weren’t enough, there’s pretty much no sense of community 

 

-And being stranded to your own devices which is why most people just get frustrated and hop on the cardio equipment, like giant lab rats

 

If you want the nice box of gourmet nuts, you have to pay for it.  

 

Newell Strength is the box of gourmet nuts.

Time Traveling is Not Impossible

About a week and a half ago, we dropped the boys off at my mom and dad’s for some play time and to go through some old action figures.

When we went to pick them up, I saw some of my favorite toys from when I was 7 or 8 years old, still in perfect condition.

As I held the Army Ant figurines and the Battle Toad guys, I went back 30 years instantaneously. I could remember sitting going to the old toy shop in nearby Somerville and making my selections.

I remember sitting on the floor at my grandparents playing with them (we lived with them when we first moved to NJ).

Hebb’s Law equals time travel.

What is Hebb’s Law?

It states that what gets fired together gets wired together. Your favorite music, your favorite nostalgia, have the power to take you back in time and make you feel those very feelings you felt when those things became wired in your brain.

Time travel is pretty cool, you just have to recognize that it’s possible.

Put Your Mind Where Your Eyes Can See It

A week and a half ago, I was having a nice conversation with a loyal Newell Strength client, Dan, and his son Daniel.

 

I always love seeing them together because I know how much of a great bonding experience lifting together is, especially for a father and son.

 

Well, in this particular conversation, I was explaining to Daniel the concept of a good workout.  

 

If you are going to enter the weight room and throw around the iron, then you must make sure that you put your mind in an uncomfortable situation.  See your mind in the palm of your hand and picture new grooves and pathways being formed because of the demands you are placing upon it in your workout.

 

Now, it depends on the purpose of your workout plan, but for me, if I don’t go somewhere that expands my mind, it was a less than fruitful session.  

 

Be aware that working out is first and foremost for your mind (it’s absolutely useless when used as  a weight loss tool). 

 

Something for you to ponder.

I Think My Phone is Bugged

Last Sunday night, I got a text from longtime friend, client and Coach, Drew, who now runs a very successful fitness business down in New Orleans.

It read, ‘Good luck with all the upcoming changes this week, I am sure you will thrive and handle it all with grace’.  

I was puzzled, because I hadn’t spoken to him about any of the changes I had planned.  How did he know? 

I didn’t put too much thought into it other than ‘The Universe is telling me that I am right on target’.  

 

Signs are everywhere if you choose to pay attention.

Who Can You Help?

About 5 years ago, I added a bumble bee tattoo on my left arm.  

 

It’s hard to spot but when you focus in, you can see it.  

 

It represents a concept from an old mastermind group that I was in where you never know the power of your words or energy towards another person, so be sure to reach out with a word of encouragement from time to time.

 

And that is all I am reminding you to do.  Be someone else’s Coach today.  No, you don’t have to get into the weeds with them, just offer them a boost.

 

Afterall, a Coach is someone that can help get someone from point A to point B, point B representing a place that they can’t get to on their own (after the term ‘stagecoach’).

 

When you become too focused on the self, troubles arise.  When you shine your focus on someone else, your worries melt away.

 

The same door you give through is the same door you receive from.

Are You Aware of Your Internal Drive?

A few years ago, I heard Professor first explain the concept of the apple tree in the middle of a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lesson.  

 

‘The apple seed wants to become an apple.  It has an innate intelligence.  It must become the tree, sprout branches and so forth until it can manifest as an apple.’

 

When we examine a tree, we understand that concept.  

 

Now, transpose that into your life.  What is your internal drive? You are becoming something and that something is an outward manifestation of some underlying power.

 

That power is the attention you have on a day in and day out basis as well as what you are envisioning for your life.  

 

Your life has its own ‘apple’ but unlike the apple tree, you have choices.

 

But you can only create the ability that you know you are the creator.

 

You may have to read this a few times to internalize it.

Amazing By These Two Little Guys

4 weeks ago, we did some really intense hikes up in New Hampshire.  

These would have been tough hikes for adults only, but we had the 3 kids with us, plus Dax and Mateena.  

The one hike was taking us on a journey to a 200-foot waterfall in the middle of the forest.  It was quite a sight to see.

But to get there, we had to go 2500 feet up and 3 miles in, which made it a 6 mile hike all around.  

The amazing thing is that Brax and Colt did the entire hike barefoot!!!  It wasn’t planned that way, it just kind of happened.  

My good friend Frank, whom we vacationed with, was there with his family (2 kids) as well and he couldn’t believe it.  

These little guys have me in constant amazement and awe.  And it got me thinking a lot more about foot strength and health (coming this fall at Newell Strength).

Once Your Mindset Expands…

I was incredibly fortunate a year ago to be able to hire Matt Furey as my personal success Coach.  This is a cat that is super modest, despite his extreme success.

In fact, people don’t know this, but Tony Robbins has paid him a few times to come and do a consult (I always wondered who the masters went to as their teachers).

Everytime we have a Coaching call, he expands my way of thinking.  So funny enough, he actually brought this up on our call last week.  

He said, ‘Kyle, once the mind expands to new realities and possibilities it can never go back’.  And how right he is!

The problem is that most people don’t let their minds expand because they get stuck in a rut with their way of thinking.  

Once you know what’s possible, why would you settle for anything less?  When I see someone use a weight in the gym that they’ve never used before, I will tell them, ‘Awesome job!  Now you can’t ever go back, you now know what your new capabilities are’.  

 

In which area does your mind need to expand?

Calm as a Sleeping Puppy

Two weeks ago, Suzy took Brax over to the BMX track for the first practice run of the season.  

Keep in mind, last year, Brax was still racing on his balance bike.  

Although, a year from tomorrow is the date that he officially rode a bike without training wheels for the first time (Devon always wonders how I remember specific events and dates like that….).

So now, it was onto the big boy bike on a bigger portion of the track.  

Surely he wouldn’t be able to race from the starting gate with the older kids?

Nope, he did it.  Devon reported back to me that he was sizing it all up and when he was ready, he lined up to the starting gate, as calm as a sleeping puppy.  

When the gunshot rang and the gate dropped, he propelled down the first hill.

As usual, I learn more from Brax than he does from me on a weekly basis.  The Zen-beginner’s mind is a beautiful thing.
