Life (81)


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).

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.

A Festivus for the Rest of Us

The very first show that I became hooked on, back when I was in high school, was Seinfeld.

The witty humor and real life application of each scene spoke to me.

And in one of the episodes, Costanza’s dad, comes up with a new holiday, known as Festivus.

Festivus was an alternative to all the traditional holiday events.

I’m all about tradition, but I am also all about the weird.

When I started Newell Strength, I decided that it wasn’t going to be just a gym, but also a family like community.

And part of that community was built around having ‘weird’ traditions, such as our very own Festivus, which we have had every year for the past 5 years.

It was a great event as usual.

Where in your life are you missing out on all the weird things and thoughts that you have?  And how can you incorporate them into your life?

Droppin Dimes in a MiniVan

We had two rides with a driver, John, down in Florida.  He was a sweet guy, early 70’s.

He pitched us on driving us to the airport when he was driving us around the day prior.

And I was glad he did.

On the way to the airport he talked and talked and then talked some more.  But this was a good thing.

He had some great ideas about the gym.  I didn’t ‘yeah but’ him, I just listened.  I made notes on what he said that I felt was relevant and simply forgot about the rest.

Learning opportunities are everywhere if you allow them to BE.

When it comes to your fitness, our philosophy is to teach you to fish….once you learn, you’ll be set for life.

The Cigar of Confluence

While we were down in Florida a few weeks ago for our good friend’s wedding, we had the chance to meet some new people at our table.

Actually, we had met some of them before but not in depth.  As we got to talking, we quickly found out a few things: the 3 siblings all went to Devon’s high school, I was the oldest at the table by a long shot and the two married couples both live in Hillsborough!

How crazy is that?  And our kids are almost exactly the same age!

I had a cigar with the one guy, TJ and we had a nice conversation about life and business.

You never know when you’ll meet some cool people.

Was it a coincidence?  Nope, it was the universe spinning the wheels of confluence again.  I am sure I’ll be seeing those guys again and one way or another, we will have an impact on each others lives.

Stop thinking everything is random, its not.

Where is Your Focus?

Ever since I was a little boy, I struggled with finding the balance in life because once I set my mind upon a thing, it was all I would focus on.

Yes, I had what would be called laser like focus.  It can be great but then again, all weaknesses will come from a strength.

Yet, in life, focus is paramount to your energy levels and staying the course.

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I shine the light on where your focus is and how you can adjust it.  You can take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/

Client of the Week: Priya

Priya trained with us a few years back at Newell Strength.  She was a pleasure to have around.

Over time however, the commute won out and she took a break.

In that couple year break, she was in a bad motorcycle accident which her and her husband Karthik, were lucky to survive.

One of the collateral damages from that accident was a bad knee injury, which kept her from her hobby and passion of dancing for far too long.

So, she decided she needed to make strength training a permanent part of her life.  Here she is in her own words, give a listen and take some inspiration from her

 

Keep it up Priya!

Your Strategic Energy Map

14 or 15 years ago, I remember a conversation I had with an old girlfriend. Actually, it was an observation she made about me.

She said, ‘I don’t understand how you always have so much energy, what’s the secret?’

And she didn’t mean I had obnoxious over the top, cracked-out energy.  She meant she could feel my positive vibes and passion for what I was doing in life.

The secret was that I knew what I was passionate about and I was already checking the box on a lot of energy boosting activities through my dedication to physical fitness.

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I give you a strategic energy map that will change your life if you apply it.  You can take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/

Knees on the Hands

Two Saturdays ago, we had our normal Saturday morning workout, just me and the guys. It was a small turnout because of the Thanksgiving weekend, but we had fun nonetheless.

Well, coming in to the last quadplex (four exercises in a row cluster), I started with heavy goblet squats using the 95 pound dumbbell for 25 reps. Insanely heavy? No, but when you add in 25 reps, your heart gets movin!

And then there were 3 other exercises to sprinkle behind that. After the final set, I put my hands on my knees, a big NO-NO in my book. I call people out on it, especially our athletes. So, I was glad that my man Jeff called me out; we both had a good chuckle over it!

Yes, you are going to get tired in your workouts and in life, but the keeping the hands off the knees is more of a mentality, not showing anyone your fatigued and not buying into the complaints of the brain when you do get tired.

Remember, the brain will give out long before the body needs to, if we allow it.

P.S-We are having our annual Festivus party on the 15th of December. It’s a great event, it’s BYOB and Potluck, kids are more than welcome (hopefully we will be able to get the live reindeer again this year). All donations will be going to Coach Gina and her kids for the holiday season because as you may or may not know, their house burned down a little over a month ago….be grateful for the little things.
