ZUU is high intensity interval training (HIT) based on primal movements, such as pushing, pulling, crawling, bending, twisting, squatting and lunging.
Each session lasts around 30-40 minutes and benefits include increased mobility, agility, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance.
Tell me more: ZUU was created by Australian fitness expert Nathan Helberg, who describes himself a “human movement educator”.
The HIT workouts were initially used by elite athletes and the armed forces in for pre-season training, conditioning and rehabilitation.

From there, the workout entered the commercial fitness industry, firstly exclusive to Virgin Active gyms and now it is available to the wider pubic.
The fitness class is also making its way into British schools to improve children’s health.
Anything else to know?: ZUU is a combined strength and energy class that claims to burn around 300 calories in 20 minutes.
It can help to prevent injury, increase mobility and flexibility, improve cardiovascular fitness and strengthen muscles and joints.
As well as being an exercise session, ZUU has an inclusive culture where participants are encouraged to motivate each other.
