Phil's Monthly Take

Each and every day is a chance for change!


We have this uncanny ability to make excuses not to do the things we’ve always wanted and while getting the band back together may not be practical for most, there are other things you can do to satiate the longing for the good old days and improve quality of living. 

Start by taking control! One of the most impactful changes people can make is to their health. The verdict is out and odds are in our favor... Healthy habits get healthy results. 

Over the years we will lose grip from time to time due to life’s unforeseen events. You can’t always rely on someone to be there and pick up the pieces for you. You’ll be better prepared by taking control, being there for YOU and your body. Your commitment to yourself is the one constant you can count on. Start now, turn back the clock and your “good health” will thank you for it.

Mental Workout with Steve Uyehara


BW: Being that you are and have been a fitness enthusiast of many programs over the years tell us what you find best helps you with sticking to a gym routine?   

SU: Convenience is huge! And that’s what makes Unyqe Fitness such an ideal spot. As much as you’d like to think you’ll make it to the gym after work, even a short drive can seem like an eternity when the exhaustion of a long day sinks in and you start thinking of everything you need to get done before you want to drop into your bed and tune everything out. Having Unyqe Fitness right in downtown Honolulu, next to work, makes it so much more feasible. And they have everything we need: free weights, cardio machines, a pool, even open space for bodyweight-type exercises.

BW: We would like to help consumers learn how to find what works for them. Besides training at UNYQE FITNESS We understand you have enjoyed many other training facilities such as UFC, 24-hour fitness, and cross-fit. What do you look for when choosing a facility.  

SU: I look for a facility that is clean, and with a friendly staff that 1) is friendly and offers assistance when I need help and 2) is not constantly trying to sell me something. I also like a variety of exercise equipment. But they have to stick to the basics.

BW: Tell us some of the challenges you have faced as you moved from being a student-athlete to a full-time news anchor and father and how have you overcome these challenges    

SU:  Aside from getting older and the aches and pains that come with that, fatherhood has mandated that my time is not MY time. Therefore I’m constantly fit workouts in when and where I can. Which is why again, a convenient location makes Unyqe Fitness a nice spot to sneak in a workout, before work, after work or on a lunch break.
