My blog is about MINDSET and ties in nicely with our January and February blogs on Goal Setting and Motivation.
So what is MINDSET?
The dictionary definition is – the established set of attitudes held by someone.

February already! My goodness, it’ll be Christmas soon.
So, I bet you finished last year in a blaze of glory! Knowing Christmas was approaching could possibly have been a reason to keep going. Not to stop any good habits that have materialised throughout 2017. Because, lets be honest now, we all wanted to sit down on Christmas day and enjoy that all-important festive dinner. And why not, it’s certainly been earned during the past 12 months.
So what now? Continue reading “How To Find Your Drive”

Traditionally, this is the time of year for people to set themselves new goals, especially those related to health and fitness, and the team at UR are no exception.
In 2017, I used the UR process of goal setting to successfully gain my SMK1 certification and I’d love to share this set of tools with you to help you achieve your own milestones this year.
But first, let’s talk a little about goal setting. What does it really mean and why do so many people get it wrong? Goal setting is the process of deciding what you want to accomplish and devising a plan to achieve it. Following the steps outlined at the end of this blog will prevent the January Resolution becoming the February Disillusioned!

Do you wake up in the morning with muscles feeling tight from the previous days activities, or during the day when performing a task, do you feel your movement is restricted and lacks range?
If this is you then you should consider introducing stretching into your daily routine and if you partake in any type of fitness regime / programme then you should definitely ensure you stretch well before and after exercising. Continue reading “Do You Stretch Everyday?”
Here at Unique Results, we are excited to be hosting two events in October – the Tactical Strength Challenge and the UR Strength Challenge, the latter being our in-house event for members needing a stepping stone to TSC.
The introduction of these challenges has prompted some of our female clients to add strength training to their programs – and they’re loving it! However, many women are still apprehensive about lifting heavy for fear of becoming ‘too bulky’. Continue reading “Strong Women”
On 28th October 2017 Unique Results will be one of 120 locations worldwide hosting the Strongfirst Tactical Strength Challenge (or TSC).
We will be encouraging a number of our own members to register as well as welcoming others from surrounding areas who can sign up to complete the challenge at our venue. The event will take place from 2pm onwards when the studio will be finished with our regular classes and sessions. Afterwards, we are planning on a couple of drinks and some food in a local pub/restaurant TBC.
Registration is $30 and includes a FREE TSC T-shirt when registering before 15th August.
The Tactical Strength Challenge (TSC) is a strength challenge consisting of three events: a three-attempt powerlifting deadlift (for a 1RM), one set of pull-ups for max reps (or a flexed arm hang for certain categories), and kettlebell snatches for max reps in a 5:00 time period (weights vary depending on category entered).
