To Whom it May Concern,
My name is Aaron Zimmerle, and I writing this professional reference in support of Nathan Helberg and his unique system of functional body weight training known as ZUU. I have actively trained in ZUU for over 3 years and can attest to the marked improvements in cardio vascular and pulmonary health as well as the measurable gains in strength and mobility that this modality of training brings.
As the director of Chisel Fitness Personal Training I was quick to acquire my Coaching Certification in ZUU as I saw the propensity for change that it brought for clients of wide ranging levels of fitness. The metabolic effect that ZUU’s interval training induces; due to elevated heart rate and whole body conditioning, has a positive effect in the glycolysis of blood sugars, which is essential in retarding obesity and the Type 2 diabetes. Two scourges of our current sedentary lifestyles.
I have also successfully used it to alleviate the pain that clients have due to poor posture and joint ROM, brought on from previous poor and non-functional training. This freedom of pain has greatly improved our client’s quality of life.
As an educator I have worked as a Senior PE and Biology teacher and coach at the Sports Excellence school PBC SHS for 11 years. In teaching our Certificate IV course in Fitness ZUU’s extensive range of safe and easily applied exercises have provided the framework on which our industry qualified students, progress into the Health and Fitness Industry. The underlying comment that my returning students have is that it is such a versatile training tool that allows them to adapt to the requirements and levels of each of their individual clients; even when training within a group environment.
My qualitative assessments of the benefits of ZUU are somewhat supported by my own background in elite sport (Gold Coast Titans Junior Reps S & C coach, NYC assistant coach, Tweed Seagulls Q Cup Head Coach), and my area of expertise which is my degree in Health Science and my Masters in Exercise Science. I am happy to share a paper with you that outlines the benefits of ZUU, for I have not a found a more safe, yet physiologically and mentally stimulating modality of training in the health and fitness industry in the last 17 years. My ultimate recommendation is that my 5 year old son does not do gymnastics, in which I am a firm believer of its health and physical benefits; instead he does ZUU with his dad.
