Liberating human movement


ZUU is unlike any form of training you’ve experienced before...

ZUU is a registered training style based on high intensity primal movement patterns mixed with strength and endurance body weight exercises.

Blending old school methods, sports science, and proven techniques with new and innovative approaches, every workout targets all major & minor muscle groups while engaging both the aerobic & anaerobic energy systems.

Put simply — every ZUU session will be one of the most comprehensive, effective, and intense experiences you'll do!

From humble beginnings


ZUU was created by Nathan Helberg as a response to weaknesses he discovered in himself through traditional training.

From humble beginnings


ZUU was created by Nathan Helberg as a response to weaknesses he discovered in himself through traditional training.

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.

Now, after years of research and refinement, ZUU has passed strict criterial to become a registered training method with Fitness Australia. While Nathan is hired around Australia and internationally to train elite sports teams, athletes, tactical police and special forces, he'll always return to train with the crew at ZUU HQ, where it all began 6 years ago.

Introducing the Ankorr


After years of research and refinement, introducing the world's first multi-planar resistance harness — The Ankorr. An evolution of our training methods and principles, the Ankorr is a true extension of the human body for those who crave the ultimate training tool.

The unique Ankorr system allows an individual to either anchor to a fixed point and work by themselves via resistance bands or team up with a partner who can provide the resistance using bands/straps with handles provided.

Working the upper and lower body using dynamic bodyweight exercises designed by The ZUU. Individuals can spin 180 degrees through sagittal planes or 360 degrees through transverse planes while maintaining constant tension. This ‘fluid resistance’ fast tracks functional strength, mobility & conditioning like never before.

Used in elite sports & armed forces worldwide, the Ankorr system is now available to the public along with certification courses through approved distributors.
