Happy Friday ๐Ÿ˜œ! I hope everyone's doing well. Continuing my countdown to the new year, this video is from one of my favorite cats and clients, Ryheem Johnson. Now when I first met Ryheem he was looking for some management assistance with his modeling career. Up to that point he was his own one man band (I know some of you can relate). So that's how our journey started. He was real lean (more lean than I thought he should be) with lots of potential, personality and a confidence in his walk that reminded me of Barrack Obama. My first thought was "yeah he definitely should compete in Men's Physique". Only thing was that the competition world was completely foreign to him, but he was game in following me in my vision. A few months of my prep (nutrition, exercise, posing, etc) and he was ready. He won his first show outright full stop, winning his divisions and taking the overall in Men's Physique for Delaware, winning the Delmarva as well, and qualifying for Nationals, and ultimately successfully building his brand (he discusses this in the video). Now it's not absolutely necessary for a coach to be that invested in someone for them to succeed. It's just my nature to see what someone else can not see (yet). It's most important that you believe in yourself though (no matter your goals). No-one can do that for you, and when you hear that voice inside you telling you that you can't do or be something, tell it to shut-up! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜œ michael@michaelroyshaw.com (302) 442-2550 #shawclients #shawmodels #mensphysique #npc #ifbb #proudcoach #procard #nutrition #health #competition #winner #classicphysique #nutritioncoach #mastertrainer #personaltrainer #agent

In the spirit of our upcoming Nutrition coaching New Year Extravaganza here's a #repost from our club manager Mike Shaw. Swing by the gym, give us a call (302)376-6979 or email us at middletownde@snapfitness.com #repostsave @michaelroyshaw with @repostsaveapp ใƒปใƒปใƒป Merry Xmas ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ and Happy Holidays everyone! As we draw closer to 2019, I decided this year that I'd post some video testimonials from some of my favorite clients. These videos vary on the types of nutrition and training I provide. For instance, included in these videos this week are weight loss clients, NPC Physique, Bikini, and Bodybuilding competitors, and athletes. First up is my man Justin. When I first met Justin, I thought he had terrific potential for fitness modeling and acting. Now getting him to see what I saw was a task. It's not easy to get a small town kid to see something bigger than their world. The audacity of hope as they say. My journey with Justin was fortuitous. It had him not only modeling and getting magazine press, and working with some of the industry's best photographers, but also getting acting gigs on Orange is the New Black and 666 Park Avenue. I'll let Justin's video speak for him though. 2019 is the Chinese year of the pig. A year of fortune and luck. You don't need an ordained year to create opportunities though - just a will ๐Ÿ˜‰ (302) 442-2550, (302) 376-6969 michael@michaelroyshaw.com #proudcoach #agent #fitnessmodeling #acting #bodytransformations #bodybuilding #shawclients #shawmodels #merrychristmas #happyholidays #onelove #snapnation #snapfitness #snapfitnessmiddletown #manager #clubmanager #nutrition

It's always cool when one of your protogees show you some love. Ryheem's one of my favorite clients and one of the most ambitious and determined cats I have ever had the pleasure to manage and coach. He's currently doing big things in the comedy and acting circuit, among other things. Thank you much for the props my man @ambitious.1 Show me a coach who doesn't like to be appreciated and I'll show you a coach who's lying lol. #shawmodels #bodytransformations #malemodels #blackmodels #blackcomedians #modelmanagement #mensphysique #npc #ifbb #buildingchampions #buildingwinners

Special shout/out and congrats to my model and client Richard who beat out a dozen fellow competitors in his Menโ€™s Physique Class to take 1st place, and then an additional 40 fellow competitors to win the overall Open Menโ€™s Physique Class at the 2018 NPC Steve Stone (Bev Frances Gym) New York Metropolitan Bodybuilding Competition. Heโ€™s now 1 step away from becoming Pro. Next stop: Team Universe this June! I remember when I first scouted Richard as a client, he said โ€œwhatever you think I can do Iโ€™ll do it.โ€ My response was โ€œBet. I want you to compete and model and win at both.โ€ His response was basically โ€œOk. Doneโ€ lol. Now, having coached, managed, and watched him become a published model, brand ambassador to several fashion designers, a talented personal trainer, and now champion NPC competitorโ€, I know he had every intention on seeing this direction become a reality. Congrats to all the other Overall winners and competitors as well. ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ… ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ† #shawfitness #aboveandbeyondphysiques #aboveandbeyondphysiquesmiddletown #snapfitness #snapfitnessmiddletown #ifbb #npc #shawmodels #bevfrancis #mensphysique #classicphysique #michaelroyshaw #fitnessmodel #publishedmodel #brandambassador

How do you set the world ablaze? One flicker at a time! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ Austen is one of the most exciting clients and people that I've ever met. His company Gravfitt has quickly become one of the most buzzed-about companies in the health and fitness industry. It continues to grow in all areas of social and entertainment media. When I first met him, I asked him why he dedicates himself to the Health and Fitness business. Like why spend so much time working on this?? He said it bothered him to see people suffering from poor health. It upset him and he honestly felt he can make a difference. That kind of honesty and passion is more "public service" than cliche trainer, and exactly why everyone in his orbit, from people who represent him like me, to people he coaches, work overtime for him. It reminds me of something I once read once in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close: "Sometimes I can feel my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living." Austen is living all the lives he wants out loud and in color! ๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ“น๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ€๐Ÿˆโšฝ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ† His universe ๐ŸŒ is now expanding, with a couple of upcoming TV commercials and TV events and more in 2017.

If you think you're beaten, you are, If you think you dare not, you don't, If you like to win, but don't think you can, It's almost certain you won't, If you think you'll lose, you're lost, For out of this world we find, Success begins with a fellow's will, It's all in the state of mind.

My favorite thing to watch in the night sky is the star #sirius โญ (the dog star), because it's the brightest star. The feeling I get when I see that star is the same feeling I get when I see a competitor on the rise; one that is the personification of Sirius among his fellow competitors. My man Justin is exactly that!, both debuting and winning 1st place and the #overall in the Bodybuilding #welterweight and Classic Physique divisions at the NPC/IFBB 2016 Delaware/Delmarva Bodybuilding Classic! Justin is coached by one of my trainers, Victor DelCampo, who's a star in his own right as an IFBB Pro, making the sport proud for more than a decade now. Yessir! It's been one helluva week! In addition to seeing Justin win, I got to watch my favorite #olympians Michael Phelps, Simone Biles, Simone Manuel, Michelle Carter, and Ryan Lochte all win #gold and make history!

If you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment. I got the chance to spotlight the connection of joy to good health and longevity this week with some of my favorite clients, two of which are in their 80's: one of them was a close friend to #drmartinlutherkingjr.; the other a skydiving champ who celebrates his current bdays by skydiving!

A fighter sometimes doesn't realize the depth of his strength until he comes face to face with his greatest weakness. My friend Tim Long of Lojowerkz productions and TuTchT Imaging created this great piece of art of me a little while back for his Victorian Era TuTchTography The piece, a vintage theatrical poster, was inspired by boxers of the time and the posters used to advertise them, like #jackjohnson, whose infamous boxing career began during the final years of the Victorian era. The #french on the piece translates to #strength of heartโค for strength of body ๐Ÿ’ช.

Every great love begins with a good story. โœ’๐Ÿ“™๐Ÿ“ท One thing I've always been proud of is the ability of my models to visually tell a story. Paired with a great #photographer and #stylist, they've created editorial stories that are meaningful and oftentimes captivating. These shots here of my model Nikolay are from the story #skippingschool published in #thehorizonmag last year. Model: Nikolay Kopytyuk Photog: Kristopher Kelly You can see more at www.michaelroyshaw.com/editorials Nikolay has been featured and published in a half dozen editorial story pieces.

There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy โœ’๐Ÿ“™. I dedicated 1 of my monthly columns once on this #nietzsche thought, after being inspired by some of my favorite clients, like Brian my gymnast in the right video, and some of my general clients whose health had bounced back after months of tenacity on their part. The human body has never ceased to astound me. Whether it's a skilled athlete (like those spotlighted here), a sculpted bodybuilder, or someone's who's beaten the odds when everyone but their mama had them down for the count, the body remains a #miracle! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ #happymonday #shawclients #shawmodels #malemodels #athletes #models #gymnasts #malegymnasts #gymnast #mensphysique #npc #ifbb #usob #nietzsche #friedrichnietzsche #instaquote #instalove #countyourblessings #birdsetfree #sia #givethanks #onelove www.michaelroyshaw.com

Your talent is #god's gift to you ๐Ÿ™. What you do with it is your gift back to God. My friend Kai's talent is truly a gift. These portraits of #whitneyhouston and I are some examples of his work. I've always admired that kind of artistic talent. ๐ŸŽจโœ’ My gifts in the arts were limited to music ๐ŸŽถ. Singing ๐ŸŽค and playing #thekeys ๐ŸŽน was my thing, but I always wondered what it was like to paint, sketch, and illustrate. โœ’Like what was it like to be #picasso lol? Definitely a #beautiful thing! Keep sharing your gifts with the world Kai. It needs it! #kaikarenin #arts #artists #illustrators #painters #shawmodels #mcm #instalove #instahot #michaelroyshaw #thevoice #blackmodels #singers #legend #leobuscaglia #gifts

Wow crazy how so much time went by since I first started shooting. I'm fortunate to be able to work with such fantastic people that have a big influence on my future. We are still masters of our fate. We are still captains of our souls. #immortals #rarebreed #set_the_beast_free #superman #quittingisnotanoption #workhard #reality #tatted_and_fit #trainharderthanme #ironaddict #overtrain #pump #alphamale #alpha #somuchfun #fitnessmodel #undewearmodel #gohardorgohome #getswole #hardwork #legionofboom #cleaneating #cleanbulk #betterbodies #menshealth #shawmodels Photographers: Don Harris @don_harris202 MUA: Myla @mylayoungartistry Underwear: Doreanse by Unicomode France

Then a woman said, "Speak to us of Joy and Sorrow." And he answered: Your joy is your sorrow unmasked ~ Khalil Gibran This year for my holiday article I tackled #depression. It's a very real situation for a lot of people. In my own circle alone, I know of several people working through depression, which is often day to day. You can find the complete article at www.middletowntranscript.com in the Sports section. Shout/out to my model Steven, pictured here, who's spotlighted in the piece.
