ABOUT OUR APPROACH & WHY WE BELIEVE IN NEW METHODS

We believe in work-life balance. Routines and exercise are proven to help you feel great. But we know it’s hard to carve out me-time in our busy world with work commitments, family, commutes, friends, personal development and more.

That’s why we’ve brought 20min EMS training to New Zealand.

WHAT CAN WE HELP YOU WITH?

Our members achieve their goals:

  • Strengthening
  • Toning & Weightloss
  • Improved Posture & reduced Backpain
  • Improved Mental Health
  • Increased Mobility (often after injuries)
  • Higher Performance in other sport areas

One or two personal EMS training sessions per week is all it takes.

Who's behind fu/nis?

‘I love seeing our members succeed and that we can have a positive effect on their lives. That’s what drives me.’

fu/nis EMS training was founded by Catrina Kuehler, wife and mum of two, who is passionate about fitness and a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Being exposed to the amazing trend of 20minutes EMS training in Germany in 2010 right before her wedding (read the full story), she couldn’t wait to bring this exciting training to Auckland and New Zealand back in 2016.

Catrina’s passion for EMS training has seen her dream of opening studios across the country come to fruition, partnering up with Kelly Percy to open the Takapuna Studio in July 2021.

Two business owner of fu/nis EMS training Auckland

‘It excites me to see people transform mentally and emotionally alongside their physical changes, and to be a part of that change is what inspires and elevates me.’

Starting out as a member in the city studio Kelly became so passionate about EMS training that she jumped at the opportunity to open the Takapuna Studio alongside Catrina.

Kelly completed a degree in Psychology in 2003, and has always placed great importance on having a healthy Mind, Body & Soul. A wife, mum of two, and business owner, Kelly’s busy lifestyle has always demanded systems and solutions that are fast and effective in producing results, so when EMS crossed her path, it was love at first sight!

MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

20 minutes - It's shorter than a TV episode. So why not go to a gorgeous studio, surround myself with the most upbeat and supportive PTs I've ever encountered and indulge in a challenging session for both mind and body. 20 minutes at fu/nis is the equivalent of a complete strength workout session. And my muscles definitely tell me to believe that fact.
