OUR HERITAGE 

ZUU is a registered bodyweight training modality created by Nathan Helberg that started in elite sports and armed forces. Over the years, ZUU has become an integral part of these sectors being used for pre-season training, game specific conditioning, rehabilitation, confined space training, remote location training and frontline troop training where equipment is unavailable or unaccessible.

Besides being available for ALL sporting code coaches and military PTI’s, ZUU has became available to the commercial world of fitness. With our heritage in the elite world where ALL training is scrutinised, we pride ourselves on increasing performance across the board.

HOW & WHY ZUU WAS BORN

Nathan was unhappy with the way gym and weight training had made him dysfunctional through joint range. Although he was strong, it was only in set planes (ie. pushing in one range on bench press, or pulling in one range on seated rows). Outside those ranges he was quite  weak, and even felt vulnerable to joint instability.

He identified through his experience (and echoed by others) that over prolonged periods traditional training can actually make you dysfunctional — your muscle groups and motor patterns impaired through constant isolation. After all, the body works as an integrated system not individual parts thrown together.

Nathan decided to develop a style of training that wouldn’t involve weights or machines — but strengthened his joints, ligaments and tendons through FULL ranges.

He also wanted to achieve a superior level of conditioning, so it needed to be a high intensity workout to burn fat and build lean muscle.

By increasing his anaerobic threshold, it also strengthened his aerobic and cardio system — effectively killing 2 birds with one stone and creating a time effective workout.

Over time as his joint mobility increased, so did ZUU’s dynamic movements. This not only dramatically improved his overall strength, but more importantly — made it far more functional.

At the same time, by dropping body fat he gained a power to weight ratio he hadn’t experienced in his earlier training.
