Here’s the BIG Difference Between Us

No, I am not talking about you and I.  

 

I am speaking of the Coaching at Newell Strength and all the fake fitness experts out there that want you to ‘grind’.

 

You know you are in the presence of a fake fitness expert when they:

 

-Tell you to eat chicken and broccoli for 6 weeks, make it as bland as possible and then blame you when you’ve only lost a pound or two for all your efforts

 

-Explain things so that no one has any idea what the heck they are talking about, using words that are overly complex and concepts that try to position them as the expert simply because no one can understand what they are trying to say

 

-Want to use their training individual training program on YOU and all the rest of their clients because it’s what got them in shape (not for one second realizing that their 6-pack abs and lean physique were all about choosing the right parents)

 

-Push your past your limits to the point that you are going to vomit or not be able to walk for a week.  A sure fire sign that you are dealing with a fake fitness expert is when thet train you simply by upping the intensity, using ‘harder’ as a disguise for their lack of true expertise.

 

The list could go on for a country mile.

 

At Newell Strength, we focus on:

 

-YOU as an individual

 

-Your MIND

 

-Immersing you into our family like community

 

🙂

Never Allow Other People’s Fear to Get in Your Way

Letter to the Boys and the Little Warrior

Hey guys, it’s been a few months since I’ve sat down to write you a letter.
 
No excuses.
 
I’ve missed my time to write and I’ve moved it back up to the top of my list.
 
What I want to talk to you about today is FEAR.
 
More specifically, not your fears necessarily, but other people’s fear.
 
Ever since March, it has been a fascinating thing to witness as the powers that be have controlled the masses through fear.
 
Now, I am not saying to not be empathetic towards other people’s fear, but NEVER and I repeat, NEVER, allow the fear of the masses to stop you from doing what you feel in your heart is the right thing to do.
 
People love to project fear onto everyone around them because if there is a lone wolf that doesn’t fall in line with fear-based thought, then the said people must have a self-inquiry to how that could be so.
 
It’s kind of like when people act out when people close to them have success in life. They aren’t even aware of what is going on inside themself, only that they don’t like to see others that are close to them progressing.
 
I’ll tell you why that is….
 
It brings up their own insecurities and it doesn’t typically align with their beliefs about what is possible in life. When other people see someone else’s reality that doesn’t align with their blueprint of life, it causes angst and anxiety.
 
It’s easier for most to try and sabotage the success rather than self reflecting and going within to do the work so their outer world can change. (I’ve seen this quite a bit over the years when it comes to weight loss and spouses).
 
Now, back to fear. If there is one thing your father is, compared to most, it’s that I have a very high tolerance for fear. I have taken every opportunity, when presented, to deal with my fears head on.
 
I’ve built up calluses to fear because I know fear isn’t a real thing. It’s a projection of the mind, out into the future (the future isn’t real) about things that may go wrong.
 
So what is everyone afraid of other people’s fears for?
 
I’ll tell you why, it’s the fear of social judgment.
 
You see, you’ve heard me talk about Mind Map throughout the years and one HUGE advantage it’s provided me is that I know how the human brain operates. It’s a prediction and response machine and it thrives on patterns.
 
When you take away prediction and response, fear can rise.
 
The human brain is also very sensitive to judgment. Judgment is the biggest threat as perceived by our brain.
 
When you are judged, it used to mean that your odds of getting kicked out of the tribe or pack went up, therefore your chance for survival goes down.
 
Everything the human brain runs through its operating system is based upon survival.
 
Another example that is still front and center is as I write this is the issue of wearing a mask. I don’t hide my feelings on my thoughts on this and I don’t wear a mask. I know many others feel the same way because they tell me so in public (yes, for the 10 people that shoot you evil glances, another 20 are inspired and have a glimmer of hope in them) but they do it anyhow because they are told to do it.
 
Most people at this point are wearing a mask because they fear the social judgment they will get. And it spreads like a virus (fear is the real virus) to the next person and so on.
 
People allow other people’s fear of judgment to infuse their own being so they go along to get along.
 
Most people say they are doing it so as not to be selfish and to protect others, which is the biggest line of cop-out, bullsh** I’ve ever heard.
 
IN reality they should be saying that I am fearful of judgment, own it, and then go about changing it.
 
Anyhow kids, I don’t want to make this all about the mask, use it as an example.
 
Fear is the dream killer. It keeps hidden potential in mankind, locked away.
 
Listen to your gut, feel the fear, head into the fear and realize that it’s all an illusion.
 
An illusion that can be used as a great tool for your growth.
 
P.S-This was written stream of consciousness like all of my writings. I didn’t proofread it and never proofread any of my work. If you find a misspelling, I don’t care. If you made it this far and this where your attention is, then you’ve missed the entire point. Go back and read it again:)




Advice to Dads Out There

Two Sundays ago, I took Brax and Colt to the playground to play with their cousins.  

 

It wasn’t long before I began to play tag with them.  

 

But it wasn’t just any tag.  Nope….

 

I put on the Halloween theme song on my phone and began pretending I was Michael Myers.  They requested it.

 

And before long, there were about 10 kids playing, the parents of the other kids were loving it.  I was having a blast and the kids were sweating their necks off.

 

Dads, when you have the chance, actually play with your kids.  Don’t sit there and count the minutes while they play.

 

It’s good for you and great for them.  

 

It’s memories like these that you’ll always remember.  

 

Exercise for ALL isn’t ‘exercise’ when you are ALL having a blast (read that again).

Jeremy Set the World Record!

A couple of months ago, Jeremy participated in the 2nd Panda Challenge.  

To say his results were extraordinary, even by Panda standards, would be an understatement.  

He dropped 10 percent body fat, gained 10 pounds of lean muscle and even more, he dropped his visceral fat by 7 points!!!!  

Most people don’t even achieve that in 2 years time, he did it in 45 days!  

He literally did a 180 with his marker of inflammation in his body.  

 

In this short video, he explains his journeys and why the Panda method is so powerful and unlike anything else he’s ever seen (and he is in the pharma industry).

Expect to Suck at First

Two weekends ago, Tank performed in his first race at BMX.  

 

It was an awesome and exciting moment for us as we’ve been coaxing him to ride a bike but didn’t want to force him.

 

Braxton was riding before he was two but again, a different path, a different person.

 

Now, Colty did great, even won two of the 3 races and picked it up really quick.  

 

As a youngster, he can pick stuff up much quicker than an adult as the nervous system is still developing and there isn’t as much fear of failure or fear of judgment.  

 

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t learn something new.  It’s just that you have to expect to suck at it at first.  When I teach people the mallet drill, I instruct them to just tap and catch.

 

Forget about getting 100 hits in a row or even 2 in a row, just tap and catch.  

 

I’ve been doing drills with my toes and feet and I am absolutely terrible at, but I know each day, I get a fraction of a bit better, which is exciting.

 

Break down the skill you are learning until you feel good about that tiny fraction of a skill and go from there.

Stop Kidding Yourself

3 weeks ago, in our weekly Saturday morning workout, I wrote a quote on the board for the crew, which I rarely ever do.  

 

‘Keep your mind open to everything and closed to nothing’. 

 

I didn’t erase it, in fact, I still think it’s up on the board. 

 

Anyhow, during the next week, long time client and friend, Manny, came in with his wife Sandy and said, ‘I was just at HomeGoods and I thought of you!’  

 

He went on to tell me that he walked by one of the picture frames in the store and in that frame, there was a quote, the exact quote that I wrote on the board!!! (See below)

You can brush stuff off like this is coincidence or you can look at it as energy and a frequency trying to get your attention and affirm the path you are on.

 

I choose the latter.

Scrawnier Yet More Powerful

20 years or so ago,back in my frat days in college, I topped the scales at 260.

I was the strongest dude around campus.  Looking back, I was a bit on the fat side. 

You see, from the get go, I wanted to be big and muscular.  Arnold was my idol.

And then I got into competing and wanting to see how far I could take my physical appearance.  

 

While I learned a lot and wouldn’t trade those experiences for the world, it was a shallow perspective.  For a good while, that drive to look a certain way was driven by insecurity.

 

Now, I was to be the scrawniest I can be, within my set point, yet I am able to have more impact and influence (power) over those in my sphere.

 

As my muscles have shrunk, my mindset and spirit have grown.

 

I don’t want to have to take up physical space, rather, I would want someone in the same room as me to feel my positive vibrational energy.  

 

Point being, be fluid.  As time goes one, let go.  Don’t be married to an ideal.

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.

Turns Out I was Right All Along

Two weekends ago, I finished a book called the Circadian Code, which was authored by, ironically, Dr. Panda.  

 

Some of the book was rudimentary, but as I got to the end there were about 10 pages of cool research that validated stuff I’ve been teaching in the Panda Program.  Yes, this is the best eating system in the world if your goal is energy and permanent weight loss, but it’s nice to see my philosophy validated by a fellow expert’s book.

 

In today’s episode, I talk about some of the stuff that was within those 10 pages.
