The last 6 monthz have flown by so quick as you can see from my last entry...
So much has happened in that time. There were times I felt overwhelmed with feelings of being stuck in quicksand, moving forward was so slow that self belief came under fire, but that's when you really get to see your true character...to see how bad you want it.
The past 6months ZUU is kick'n the proverbial in Virgin Active gyms, a lot of credit goes to their trainers being top shelf. Genesis soon caught wind of the solid culture growing there & made contact to do Master Classes. From there we've moved to 9 gyms with a National roll out scheduled for Feb 2013.
Fenix gyms then jumped on board working through the same process, Master Classes, verifying response from members to see if they liked the program & going from there. That being said, every Master Class I have ever taken has been overwhelming with positive responses. We are now in Fenix.
I showcased to Goodlife in Sydney. Their national head of PT did the class & being a big choreographed group instructor he didn't like the way we get trainers to "think" about what they're putting together. Nor could he keep up with the workrate I set...it wasn't very hard either...
In elite sports if every one in the coaching staff is "nice guy's", you'll breed nice guy's for players & win nothing. You need someone to be hard, disciplined even a mongrel, whatever the sport.
The same applies with mainstream fitness. When people at the top are soft...what kind of culture will they breed? None...they just become a number crunching business.
Fitness First was the last to trial us. The Master Class I held in Sydney City had 75+, again the response was overwhelming! We worked through a process for a National roll out...then things stalled?
This is a lesson crew of the hardships in business especially when things are out of your control. They eventually pulled the pin on ZUU..the only reason I eventually got was ZUU was too hard?
Ha ha of course its bloody hard, we cut our teeth in the elite sporting world & we've come into mainstream fitness. The funny thing is guy's the members loved it! The powers higher up thought otherwise, instead of listening to the power brokers (members) they thought they knew better much to the disappiontment of the members contacting me.
Training needs to be hard. It also needs to be achievable...which ZUU is. Its definitely not for everyone nor do I want it for everyone. If you come to ZUU wanting to "dumb" it down because its too hard...go do another program that caters to your lack of discipline & spend an eternity in DaWilderness complaining you don't get results. Lot's of programs & trainers out there for that.
If you want to have a crack, then ZUU is for you. All you need is the will to want to change, ZUU will do the rest. Again ZUU's heritage in elite sports proves that fact.
Training needs to go back to #OldSkoolWayz where there was authenticity in the trainers. They were professionals...today there's too many who have no business being there. They breed softness & so we have a generation who wants to be catered to....wrapp'd up in cotton wool...
ZUU will never be water'd down....because clear on my path I am....EeesaSupChe!!
