There is so much noise in the fitness industry nowadays, with so many available movement patterns that the lay person simply gets caught up amongst the noise when it comes to making a decision about what's best for them.

Nothing can be hardcore enough for the consumer either, as movements like CrossFit literally 'forge elite fitness' for average mums and dads, making elite level training protocols readily available to anyone willing to participate. Then we have bodybuilding / physique training which has stood the test of time for sure, and continues to inspire its active participants, followed by the myriad of breakout franchises like F45 which simply provides a 'no thought needed' environment for people who enjoy going through the motions but don't aspire to the likes of CrossFit. In so many ways, we are spoilt with choice as consumers, but with choice comes disappointment and with disappointment comes complacency.

Until now, if hardcore training programs were too all-encompassing for an individual, or too much stress on the body for people under enormous daily stress, the only real options have been our yin focused cousins like yoga and pilates. World's apart!

10 years ago program founder and educator Nathan Helberg found himself in the same boat as everyone else, as he struggled to maintain physical function and mobility on a traditional bodybuilding regime. In his words, Isolation movements had left him 'vulnerable' and in need of change.

On this episode we explore the training system which is ZUU, through the eyes of two of its most experienced devotees. Two people who have experienced the multifactorial benefits that ZUU provides, and have fully embraced it as an important part of their lives. For Luke Bishara, ZUU frankly changed his life and provided much needed direction. For Dirk Gardner it became a philosophy by which to live. For both boys though it is the #truth, and a tool for doing good within communiites & reconnecting people to themselves and each other.

I call these lads good blokes. Nathan Helberg calls them his #generalz

Enjoy the show,

 

Shannon...
