Dear Friend, Be a MAN.

This three-word sentence was one of the most important elements of the Charles Atlas Dynamic Tension course. First assembled in the 1920’s and sold through mail order, the course didn’t just teach exercises. It talked about attitude and what it takes to be somebody. Atlas may have been the most famous person to use the “M” word ... but a quick gander through other old-time sports and fitness books will show that authors of the early 20th century actually thought about what a MAN is ... or more importantly, what a MAN can be. Books on wrestling, boxing, jiu-jitsu and judo were often referred to as the “manly” arts. And each time the word “MAN” or “MANLY” is used, the reader gets an injected sense of possibility. The “M” word makes you imagine what you can become if you simply buckle down and follow a daily fitness regimen or combat-oriented art ... or devote yourself to any other worthwhile endeavor. Today we see the exact opposite approach being used. A number of martial arts are sold under the pretense that you do not need to be a “Man” or “manly.” “You don’t need to be tough. Strength, fitness and conditioning are not necessary. Technique is all you need.” Funny, isn’t it? Commercial successes of today appeal to the inadequacy of an individual but offer no internal solutions. Everything is external.
“You don’t need to be ‘A Man’, just use our flashy technique.” “You don’t need to be ‘A Man’, just take our supplements.” “You don’t need to train hard , just take steroids.” “You don’t need to be responsible for your life, it’s other people’s fault.”

In today’s world, how often do we see the words “MAN” and “MANLY” used? Never. Part of this may be that men of today are afraid of what women might think. And I understand this. But it is neither sexist nor chauvinistic for men to think of and work toward becoming an ideal MAN. I believe a man should be a MAN. It is only natural. Whether you are a man or woman, however, I believe it is a crime to dumb

I began exercising three times per week.com .” Another used to laugh at me and call me “muscle bound. I ignored them enough to keep doing what I was doing .

Each summer. One afternoon. Part of the reason why I got interested in fitness in the first place was because I was the sixth of seven children in an Irish Catholic family.

I merely imitated what I saw on the Olympics.and to model and emulate what other successful people have done. But because bigger brother was off to college.. But there is something different about Matt.” Yes. It takes guts to invest in yourself. it takes guts to run on your own gas. people complemented me for how I looked. I decided I had had enough. you can imagine how many ass-kickings I got as a boy. to ask for help from those who can help you . Preceding me were four brothers and a sister. As Thoreau wrote long ago.. I’m going to kick your ass.” He laughed. He took my mom to the side and said.. We go out into fields of seed corn and strip the 2 www.

“Could you please turn the alpha to numerics for me” . Sensing my brother’s inevitable destruction.

Most people would contract 40 acres. pulling and walking .” At the time I didn’t know the phrase.which was only $100 more than anyone else on the crew.. it’s his nature to sting.

He crashed into me and instead of me getting bowled over.. He was in big trouble. My brother insisted that he would pay me. thinking he was going to whoop me just like old times... this was a pretty good chunk of change back then.well. Sure.” To this I replied “. I locked him up in a tight bear hug and tossed him to the ground.and so I carried on with my unspoken dream of “good money. And when it came time for me to receive my share of “good money” . Being that the entire job took two to three weeks. 3 www... My mother insisted that I needed to help my brother.com . he still tries.m. when it was still cool.

From there I started throwing punches while heavy expletives rained upon him. By that time the sun was blistering our skin and the mosquitos were chomping on our flesh. and exchanging insults with the others in the pack. My mom and our dog came running from the house. At the time the company paid about $110 per acre. too. Suffice it to say that his car door opened and he tore after me. After a few minutes rest we’d head back.

My right foot punted him in the gonads. This made him even more determined to egg me on. and during that time he came to the conclusion that I wasn’t such a bad guy after all. and he bought everything I had with me. At the same time. gratitude and forgiveness are fine and dandy . A case in point took place when I was a junior in high school. Realizing this conversation wasn’t leading to an amicable resolution..mattfurey. He began pushing me in the chest with his hand. Yet. that all would be well between us. I gave him one more chance to stop. He was a fearsome striker and a week earlier had given his cousin 13 stitches inside and 14 stitches outside his mouth .Love. at a track meet. Most of the time you become good friends afterward. my friend’s brother and our dog would have let me pummel the bastard into submission that afternoon. and from only two swings. But when I turned around the tough guy was staring at me. The school’s toughest man followed me into the “john” after lunch. I’m also in favor of fisticuffs.and I’m all in favor of them. But the fact of the matter is this guy went home for three days to recover .. He started using one finger. How you deal with each test is what’s important. Still fearing for my life... the last time I saw him. In fact. A few weeks later. Blood poured.” I told him to stop pushing. he asked if I had any t-shirts and other goodies . I grapevined him with my left leg to keep him down and told him he should just give up now and go back to class. in triplicate. which was made of brick and had no doors.. but the point of all of them is simple: Be a MAN. I was leaving the stall. I said I would so long as he never bothered me again. if need be. There are many other stories I can tell. I’m pretty certain that if my mother. The hard surface delivered one helluva inrtoduction and the tough guy lay humbled. He begged me to get off. he told me he was sorry for picking the fight and we became friends. I immediately crowded him so that he couldn’t punch me. He insisted that I let him up so that he could beat the crap out of me. As his hand moved forward the next time. You are going to be tested throughout your entire life. I grabbed him by his thick curly hair and knocked his head into the brick stall a few times. I grabbed his hair again and turned his face toward the ceiling and popped him in the nose.

Being able to look in the mirror and know that I’m on a never-ending journey toward the fulfillment of goals that make sense to me. I wish I could be more like that. There are rewards for being straightforward and there are slings and arrows.that is what I’m all about. right? Why not in real life?” I sincerely hope that those who listen to me and read my words like what I have to say . and that are worthwhile and good . mind you. It doesn’t get to a certain point and say. I’ve often told my students here in Tampa. but I’m not necessarily suggesting you be that way.mattfurey.. and the rest don‘t. but you’d be surprised how many people never say or write anything that they truly believe because they’re afraid that someone out there won’t like it (or like them).” 5 www.com . a number of people have said to me.

You just say what you think. but it is also to your benefit to have less specific but highly empowering goals.. so why pay attention to them? Long ago I remember hearing the renowned business and motivational writer Brian Tracy saying. It doesn’t stop at 50 feet because the other trees don’t like him. You just don’t care if anybody likes you or not. A California Redwood doesn’t grow ten feet when it can grow 100. Let the naysayers squawk and flutter around in the chicken coop..
