  • From Dr. Christian: Reflections: "The Paradoxical Commandments of Leadership"

    165lbs of Rompin, Stompin, Airborne Romance in Jump Boots!     The Paradoxical Commandments of Leadership were published in 1968 when Kent Keith was a Sophomore at Harvard.

    One of my favorite parts of the Newsletter is choosing and reflecting on a "Quote" for our "Quote of the Month Page".  At the Air Force Academy a priority was placed on Leadership principles. These generally were based on hundreds of years of accumulated examples of great military leaders and visionaries. One of the missions was to produce graduates who would of course be future leaders of the armed forces in peace and war. One of the purposes of sports according to the eloquent Douglas McArthur (Duty, Honor, Country) was  "On the fields of friendly strife are born the seeds that on other days and other fields will bear the fruits of victory." "Take care of the horses and the men", "be an example", "get to know their families" and "servant leader" were foundations we were taught Your USAF Academy Center for Character and Leadership opened in April 2016!and practiced. The importance of this emphasis on leadership has culminated in the building of the  USAFA Center for Character and Leadership which opened in April 2016.  I am excited to see it when I return in late September for my 50th Reunion.   I graduated in 1966 and Kent Keith's initial listing of "The Paradoxical Commandments of Leadership" was published as a small pamphlet in 1968 when he was a sophomore at Harvard.  So, it was only about 20 years ago that I stumbled on them when Mother Teresa died and a book written about her described "a sign on the wall of Shishu Bhavan, the children's home in Calcutta" which reflected her appreciation of the commandments. In Medical School we were taught "People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care".  And I've always loved Maya Angelou's ,"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel".  As I definitively grow older and hopefully wiser, mellower and loving, these inspirational phrases resonate in my mind and encourage me to be a better part of The Silent Revolution by practicing these commandments.  On this Memorial Weekend I hope we might all reflect on these things, the "ultimate love" demonstrated by our fallen comrades and as Leo Tolstoy wrote "What Men Live By."

    We Salute Monica Brant, IFFB Fitness Olympia Champion & 2X World Pro Figure Champion!

    Monica Brant gets her DXA Body Composition Testing at Inside Outside.


    Monica Brant, IFFB Fitness Olympia Champion and 2010/2013 World Pro Figure Champion came by for a DXA Body Composition Scan and featured Inside Outside's DXA Scanning service in her March Monthly Maintenance Newsletter.   Dr. Christian met Monica in the early 1990's when before she moved to California and started her rise to celebrityMonica wrote a tribute to Rachel McLish, 1980 Ms. Olympia on her FaceBook page. status in the fitness world.  She has been featured on over 100 magazine covers, has had many television appearances, authored a number of magazine articles and is sponsored by a number of producers of wellness and fitness products.  She continues an arduous multiple mode training routine and focuses on helping others who aspire to improve their fitness, performance and health. We salute Monica for setting a great example and her decades long contributions to the health and fitness of thousands of her followers. She even is a friend of the 1st Ms. Olympia 1980, Rachel McLish, and has arranged for Rachel to sign a copy of a Strength Training for Beauty Magazine featuring her on the cover which I bought in  May 1984!  As Monica said it so simply "I like to connect people." Monica brought her Mom Patti, Husband Brad,  Father Phil and friend Mike by for DXA Body Comp Scans.  Patti and Dr. Christian showed her it's never to old to do pull ups.  It's wonderful to have Monica back in San Antonio with her very special gifts of "personal example and inspiration" and back in my life.

    DXA Body Composition Scans Help  Ben, Shay & Nydia Prepare for the RipTide Classic!

    Nydia (Figure), Shay (Physique) and Ben (Bodybuilding) Champions on the Beach in Panama City for the RipTide Classic.


    Over the years we have had many Bodybuilders and Physique/Figure/Bikini competitors take advantage of our DXA Body Composition Testing services to assist them with preparation for their contests.  Recently we had a trio of highly motivated competitors undergo serial scans to assess their progress with bulkingNydia, Ben and Shay! 1st Place winners RipTide Classic! and then cutting for competition.  Ben Macchiarelli, his wife Shay Stone and Nydia Salinas had serial scans done and were able to visualize and measure their results which helped to guide their nutrition and workouts. They traveled to Panama City Florida for the 2016 RipTide National Qualifier Classic held on 14 May 16.  Ben competed in the Heavyweight and Novice Bodybuilding events and won 1st place in each and was 1st Place Men's Overall Champion. (Ben measured 4.03% Body Fat 7 days prior to the event, our lowest so far).  Shay competed in the Women's Physique and won 1st Place and Overall Physique. Nydia won 1st Place in the Women's Novice Class and Class B Figure as well as 1st Place Overall Figure!  So, this trio brought home a total of 8 (Eight!) 1st Class trophies! These results qualify each of them for a National event and if they win, they get their Pro-Cards!  Amazing! If your goals are to get to this level, these three know "what it takes" and can help you do it!  You can find Ben and Shay at Anytime Fitness.  Nydia trains out of the Olympic Gym & Anytime Fitness in Pleasanton. But, don't waste their time if you are not serious, because they are "really serious" & their results speak volumes for their dedication, hard work & sacrifice!

    Memorial Day, a Day to Remember Fallen Comrades

    The Ultimate Level of Commitment!

    "The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet church-yard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit." Read Pvt. Treptow's Pledge and check out the beautifully worded complete text of the original order issued in 1868 at Headquarters Grand Army of the Republic, Washington, D.C.
