Update

A big hello to everyone!  It has been a while since my last post.  First I would like to give a big THANK YOU to all who participated in my survey.

With the responses to the survey question I am set to produce my first product.  The product will be released sometime soon after the new year, stay tuned.

My plan is to continue to produce great products which will motivate, educate, and inspire all to work harder, work smarter, reach their goals, and get the results they have been dreaming of.

I am going to try my best to post a weekly update on training, conditioning, motivation, and goal setting.  I am very busy with coaching, training, and trying to be the best dad/husband I can.  Thank you to all for your support and encouragment over the past few months, I can’t do any of this without you.

I have a question for everyone.  What are some of your goals and how do you plan on reaching them?  Please feel free to post your answer in the comment section and we’ll see what everyone has to say!

Until next time,

Dean

P.S: If you have any question or comment you can post it or you can reach me at: dean@jewettstrength.com or visit my website at: www.jewettstrength.com, check it out, and use the contact us page to get to me.

Improving

Filed under: athletes, Exercise, fitness, Mental toughness — Tags: , , , , — jewettsnc @ 7:14 am

Every day is an opportunity to be a little better than the day before.  What you do with this opportunity is up to you.  For me and the people I work with we work hard to do the rights things to prepare us to be successful.

I get a lot of people asking me about how they can get better and improve.  My reply is always, “put in the work, take the time to do things correctly, and continue on your journey”.

To get the results many of you want, there has to some sacrifice and dedication.  Without sacrifice and dedication to your goals you are almost guaranteeing you will not reach them.  Again, take every day as an opportunity to take another step toward your goals, another day to get better.

An old coach of mine always used to say, “you either get better or worse, you never stay the same”.  Make sure you are getting better, each and every day.

Stay fit my friends

Time

Filed under: Exercise, Mental Prep — Tags: , , , , — jewettsnc @ 10:30 am

What do you do with your time?

I always have plenty to do.  If you ask my wife, I find stuff to do.  I can’t sit still, it is not in my blood.

Lately I’ve been keeping busy by working my plan, getting my fitness business running more effectively, and being around for my girls.

People complain of not having anything to do or being bored.  I don’t know how anyone can think this way, I always have sooo much to do.

Another thing I hear people complain about is not enough time.  I find time.  You have to prioritize what is important to you. 

My girls (baby and wife) are my #1 priority.  Then comes work, fitness and other activities.  This takes up all of my time and I absolutely love it.

I have been really busy this past week putting together my thoughts on paper and will be soon releasing them to you.  I am a very motivated person and I know I will get this done and to you soon. 

One of my projects is a FREE REPORT on getting stronger and the other is an e-book on becoming more confident.  Right now they are taking up some of my valuable time so I may help others out there who may benefit from my knowledge.

This is just some of the things that run through my head and take up my time.  What do you do?

Let me know how you spend your days.  I welcome any comments or concerns.

Stay fit my friends

Dean

This video shows how I made my own sandbags that I use for my training.  Pretty good workouts can be done with the sandbags and they are a good tool to have.  Tell me what you guys think.

Here is a nice video clip that was on the news last night.  It is about High Intensity Interval Training.  It is the same stuff we do at Jewett Strength.  Check it out!  By the way, check out the guy in a dress shirt, can you really get a good workout in wearing a dress shirt?

Kettlebells

Hey everyone,

If you don’t know what this picture of is; it’s called a kettlebell.  I am in love with these pieces of equipment.  It is an old school piece of training equipment and they are a huge craze in the fitness world. 

I have heard of them before and have seen them plenty of times but never really used them.  Now I’m hooked!  I can’t wait to learn more techniques and exercises with them.

The kettlebell gives you a heck of a workout in a very short period.  I am getting my technique down and learning more and more.  Love to workout with them and I have kicked my butt quite a few times now. 

What a great tool to add to your routine.  Stay tuned for some pictures and videos of some exercises using the kettlebell.

Until next time

Dean

Goal Setting

Filed under: athletes, Exercise, Mental Prep — Tags: , , , — jewettsnc @ 10:05 pm

Here is my first attempt at a video blog.  I need to work on the lighting, but the content is solid.  I was a little nervous, but want to have the connection to everyone with the video and need the practice so I can use it to show exercises and different techniques and some other fun stuff.

Let me know what you think
