Training (38)


Are You the CEO of Your Life?

During the past month, I have been fortunate enough to spend a lot of time at home with our 3 kids.

And part of that has included a lot of early morning walks with Emma, in the darkness before dawn.

It’s usually during those times, that inspiration strikes me.

And one thing that I have been harping on as I recharged during the month of August was to get back to being the CEO of my life.

Think about all successful CEO’s: how do they present themselves? How do they talk?  How is their body language?  What does their morning routine look like?

Success leaves clues and whether you like it or not, you are the CEO of your life.

What do you expect to get and experience from your life?

It’s time to up the ante.

My Chest Got Stomped On!

For my birthday weekend, 4 weeks ago, Devon and I went to see our buddy Petey so I could get some new birthday ink.
I now have the exact copy from the baby book of each child’s footprint on my chest, nearest my heart.
So, yes, my chest got stomped on in a spiritual way:)
Anyhow, Petey is a man of wisdom and always seems to say something that resonates with me.
From this particular trip he gave me the great reminder that I am always to trying to remind you of, about how everything in life is about creating more happiness.  That’s all our brain craves.
To see if you are on track, ask yourself, ‘Is this particular path making me more or less happy?’
It was something Devon and I were pondering on our ride over there.
The universe is amazing in how it sends us messages at the exact right moment.

Fatigue Made a Coward of Me

When I first heard Vince Lombardi’s famous quote some 15 years ago, it stuck with me.
‘Fatigue makes cowards of us all’.
And if you read my email from Monday, you know the main reason behind why I set my summer fitness goal.  It has paid off handsomely but that doesn’t mean there have been some bumps in the road as far as my mindset.
A few weeks in, with broken up sleep and lack of sleep, my mind wanted to slip back to thinking about it was about how I looked (damn EGO).
This was a cowardly way to think.  My family doesn’t care what I look like as long as they have a fun, happy, energetic daddy at home.
To make it about how I look is selfish and I am lucky Devon can always guide me and Coach me through times when fatigue grabs a hold of my mindset.
Listen, fatigue will make a coward of you at some point this week or next.  What are you going to do about it?

The Wonderful Story of Gabby

Gabby was the Hillsborough member of the month for July, yes, I know I am a little behind:)
Both of Gabby’s parents began training with us a year or so before they brought her in.
And when Gabby came in, she laid out her goals and I am happy to say she has smashed them out of the park!
Her physical transformation has been inspirational but more importantly her confidence is soaring.  And in life, all we all want more of is confidence and energy (both lead to happiness), right?
You can take a listen and look at Gabby’s story here: https://youtu.be/0O367tOAOvg

Member of the Month: Liz Kish

Liz began training with us at Newell Strength over a year ago.

She came from another facility that she had simply outgrown and it has indeed been remarkable to see how she has grown in mind, body and spirit in that time period.

Liz even has her husband, Dennis, training with us now too and they are both a key piece to the community and family of Newell Strength.

Take a quick listen and watch as Liz explains her path at Newell Strength thus far: https://youtu.be/xKB3k_RMoJU

Here’s How He Did It

One month ago, roughly, right before I was about to take Braxton to martial arts, I decided I would take off his training wheels on his big boy bike.

It is something that I had wanted to do for a while and I thought we could at least start the process for 30 minutes or so.

So, he and I go down to the garage and take off the trainers and head back up to the cul de sac.

I helped him get on and start running with him while holding the back of the seat for about 5 seconds and then I let go and boom, he nailed it on his first try, he just took off!

I was looking at Devon we both shrugged in amazement.

My expectations were clearly different than Braxtons.

What’s the point?  Well, as adults, we often expect things to be too hard or that they have to take a certain amount of time.  They don’t.

And, sometimes, as humans, we are just a natural at certain things.  In other things, not so much.

Time for self evaluation….

Become a Workout Warrior?

In late 2008, early 2009, people would come up to me while I was training and ask if I was doing Crossfit.

I was perplexed because I hadn’t heard of it yet.

But my training and the philosophy of Newell Strength, even in its infancy, was so outside the norm that people wanted to attach a title to it.

So yes, Newell Strength does indeed predate Crossfit.

And normally I don’t say much about them, because I don’t focus on other places.

Yet, it keeps coming up to me, from people that are jumping ship from places like that, that the said trainers at other places don’t understand that most people aren’t training to simply get good at exercising.

To exercise to become a good ‘exerciser’ is stupid.

There has to be a carry over to life: playing with your kids, being able to participate in daily activities that you enjoy, a better mindset, etc.

If you come across these ‘fake experts’ that want you to get good at sweating, tell them to take a hike.

The key with exercise is that you enjoy the process and that you get a sweat, all else falls under those things.

Well, she stayed the course and had a mindset of being inspired and disciplined.

To date, she has lost over 30 pounds and has shown commitment of the highest order.

Here she tells you in her owns words…enjoy the video!

A Tribute to Easy E

I’d be remiss as continue the trip down memory lane of Newell Strength if I didn’t share some footage of Eric.

Eric holds a special place in my heart and was one of the first people to train with me in the old PIT.  He lived in a group home nearby and sadly left this world last year.  I have memories upon memories of this special guy.

Enjoy the clip! https://youtu.be/zfUjSiIcfS4

The Highest Form of Learning is Unlearning

I was always a decent student, not great, but above average.

Unless the subject matter stimulated me, I didn’t see the point.

It was only after I graduated from college that I realized how much of a passion I had for learning.

I swore I would never read another book again when my commencement ceremony was over, my dad can attest to this.

Then as I kept getting deeper and deeper into my passion of strength training, I realized how much more there was to learn. And I realized that information is not knowledge.

As the years have gone by, I have discarded principles that I thought I would live by the rest of my life. But as I learned, I discarded. Back and forth it went. I kept emptying my cup.

What’s one thing you can pour out of your cup this week? One belief that you choose to challenge?
