Coach (12)


Member Showcase: Casey Ransone

Casey and I grew up together.

 

In fact, there is an old Little League photo of us hanging up in the Hillsborough Newell Strength when we were 11-12 years old.

 

Casey has gone on to great things, but one of the things I admire most about him is his ability to find harmony in his life between being a husband, great dad, varsity football Coach and an individual.

 

Yup, he still makes time for his own personal health and fitness.

‘No One Cares What You Look Like’

I competed in my first bodybuilding show back in the spring of 2004, 15 years ago! Man, time flies…

 

It began as a challenge to myself but like all things, if you aren’t careful, a healthy pursuit can quickly become something else and take on a life of its own.

 

I matured in later contests and realized that it was the process, the journey, that is what it was all really about.  I was never cut out to be a ‘bodybuilder’, it was just something I did.

 

But like you, I struggled with body image issues for a very long time.  And even though I do all this mindset work and yada yada, even with all that, after my contest in 2014, I fell back into big time body image issues after the contests were complete.

 

That was until my Coach, Scott Abel, pointed out to me, that no one cares what I look like.  Everyone is concerned with themselves.  It was perfect timing as Devon and I were getting ready to go on a vacation to the beach.

 

Don’t fool yourself and let your ego trick you into thinking that you are trying to change your body so other people will be more impressed.

 

What is it really about?  Get real, is it more energy, being happier, more confident?

 

When it’s about the externals and the externals only, you are on the wrong path.

 

In this case, your EGO isn’t your AMIGO.

Listen to Learn

I was really bummed a few weeks ago when Michigan State lost in the Final Four.

That’s my team, being with my family connection, being born there and going to basketball camp out there before my senior year (I actually had an academic scholarship there and wound up turning it down for other reasons for another time).

While at that camp, back in 1998, Coach Izzo would constantly repeat the mantra: Listen to Learn and Learn to Listen.

Listening is a skill, an invaluable one at that.

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I discuss listening and also making sure you don’t lead a life of convenience.

You can take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/podcast/dont-lead-a-life-of-convenience/

You’ve Changed….

Back in 2007, when I started the business of Newell Strength, I used to drive around to people’s homes in my little Hyundai Elantra with some exercise bands, a pair of dumbells and one old medicine ball.

 

A year later, my parents were gracious enough to allow me to build a 200 square foot studio in their basement, known as the PIT.

 

A couple of years later, I expanded that to 600 square feet.

 

And then I opened the first stand alone facility.

 

I used to train only athletes and men.

 

It used to be just me and then me and Gabe Lincoln (our first ever Coach besides me).

 

We used to train all through the winter with the garage doors open.

 

At the time, we achieved what we set out to do.  We created the culture we wanted at that point in life.

 

It’s funny when people tell me that we’ve changed, that I’ve changed, as if it’s somehow a negative.  I sure hope I’ve changed and that Newell Strength has changed.

 

In life, you can either adapt and grow or stay the same and die off.

 

When you see it like that, it’s obvious which path you should take.

 

So yes, we have changed and will continue to change.  But the mission remains the same: To Inspire People to Transform Their Lives.

 

Think about change and the idea of it in your own life.

Member Showcase: From Nervous to SuperWoman

I remember the very first time that Linda walked in to Newell Strength.

She happened to come by during a very busy athlete training session, which meant there were primarily big, strong dudes everywhere.  Add to the fact that Newell Strength is in a warehouse and she simply couldn’t get her head around this place being a fit for her.

She had to think about it.  However, Coach Dana reached out and was able to calm her fears and get her to commit to just 30-days.

Welp, that was 2 years ago.  Linda is one of the great success stories of Newell Strength.  She feels better, has lost a ton of weight and has become an important part of the Newell Strength community.

Here Linda tells you in her own words why you should never judge a book by its cover

Discover Your Mental Resilience

10 days ago, I was on the phone with my long-time mentor, friend and Coach, Vince discussing business and life.

When you start anything out in life, any new venture, it’s going to be tough.  You need to bring a tremendous amount of energy to the table, there will be many rejections and mistakes.

And that was mainly what I was talking with Vince about.

Later that same week, he texted me to see how everything was going and I informed him of an issue we were having and he texted me back ‘GOOD’.

This is taken from Jocko (former SEAL) and is probably the quickest way to reframe a situation that I know of.

It instantly made me feel better.  Something is no longer working? Good. You got told no ten times? Good.  You’re having growing pains? Good!

Reframing is the most powerful skill we have at our disposal, develop it.

The Runaway Pick Up Truck

Roughly two weeks ago, I was driving with Suga Shane to an off-site meeting with my long time Coach and mentor, Vince.

We were around mile marker 34 when I saw in my periphery a black pick up truck jet across our 3 lanes.  Amazingly, no one hit it.

Suga looked up and said, ‘What was that?!’

We both thought he was just cutting through but then we watched as he proceeded to cut across the 3 west bound lanes at a violent speed as well, again amazingly, no one hit him.

And off the edge he drove.

We called 911 and reported it.  I tried to look up the outcome that night but couldn’t find anything.

There are a couple of takeaways here; never take a second for granted, easy to say, but hard to live.  This guy was probably just on his way to work when he fell asleep at the wheel or his accelerator may have gotten stuck.  And, if we had been two seconds further ahead, we would have gotten smashed by him.

Perspective is a key element to enjoying your life.

Our, if nothing else, this shows you how important sleep is if indeed he fell asleep.

The Path Is Immediate

The Path Is Immediate

When I was 17 years old, I wanted to be the best strength coach in the world.

I didn’t even really know what that meant because I had no one to set the bar against.

All I knew was that I was consumed with this idea of being the best.  Looking back on it, it was being the best that I could become.

It was reaching my full potential.  Am I there yet?  Nope, not even close.

However, I far surpassed my ‘movies of the mind’ from way back when.

You never really know where you are going to wind up.  Most people never even sniff their best self because they are unwilling to see how far they can actually go in life.

The path, your path, is immediate.  You are on it right now.  You can see the next step or even maybe the next couple of steps.

But the path is going to wind and zig-zag and go up and down.  Most people try to see the end from their current position.

You cannot see the end from where you are right now.  All that projecting does is increase your level of anxiety and makes you feel like a loser.

If you are feeling the great anxiety gap, just know that it is caused by trying to focus on the end of the path (which doesn’t really exist, it just keeps going) rather than your current and next steps.

Success is yours for the taking.  So what if it means you gotta show up and do the work every day.  So what if it means that you didn’t see anything after one day of doing visualization exercises.

The time is going to go by anyway.  You and you alone are in charge of your destiny.  If you don’t think so, it’s because you’ve bought into the lie of ‘out there’.

I will be teaching some really cool stuff that will help you activate regions of the brain that you didn’t even knew existed and fusing that with some serious mental work to make 2017 your best year ever.  This one is going to be a bit different, so there’s only room for 6 people.  You can find more info and sign up here, if you dare to be great in 2017: http://kylenewell.com/december

Sometimes Giving Credit Where Credit is Do Will Get You Attacked

Sometimes Giving Credit Where Credit is Do Will Get You Attacked

I got news for ya.

Regular cardio doesn’t work.

Let me clarify that.  It doesn’t work for fat loss.

I could say just to look at what the majority are doing and do the opposite and leave it at that.  But I won’t.

In the early spring of 2008, I was being mentored and coached by legendary physique expert, Scott Abel, of Canada.

His philosophy really clicked with the direction I was heading in.  And he was the first authority that I came across thad the science to back up things I had been doing since college: the epic cheat day and my ‘anti’ cardio stance.

Scott wrote an article or two about it.  I read them, re-wrote them in my own words with some other methods I was learning about and then I taught them.

The best way to learn is to write about it and teach about it (anything).  I gave Scott full credit in my article, which wound up going viral in the fitness world.

And then I was attacked by his little army of minions for copying him.  Sigh….

Did I use his ideas?  Yup!  Did I capitalize on his ideas?  Yup!

But did I put my own unique twist on it?  Yup!  I have always blended what I have learned from the masters into my own unique style, my voice if you will.

Part of my life’s philosophy is to take things and make them your own.  Don’t plagiarize.

Once you find your voice, and you believe in it, it becomes easy to absorb what is useful and to discard the rest.

There is nothing new under the sun, only new ways and angles of looking at existing things.

If you are a mom or know of a mom that would like to know why we don’t do cardio at Newell Strength, but even more importantly what we do in place of it that is much  more effective, then send them over here to apply for our Fit Moms Challenge:  http://www.newellstrength.com/fit-mom/
