Ziva: The Precision-Made Equipment of Champions

You can’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get.”

– Michael Phelps, Olympic-medal winning swimmer (1985 – present)

 Standout, inspirational design and high-quality precision manufacturing has been at the heart of ZIVA from the beginning. ZIVA’s mission is to create functional products that not only achieve what they are designed to, but are also objects that inspire and engender real pride.

Recognizing that the world is not one color inspired the range of color-coded equipment launched in 2010. ZIVA’s commitment to constant design evolution in order to create a holistic gym ecosystem is so deep, a Centre of Excellence for Design was opened in Italy during 2017.

The Equipment of Champions

In the beginning, having ZIVA at the Olympics was an idea and a dream. This came to fruition when ZIVA was appointed Official Partner of the Brazilian Olympic Committee, with the objective of designing, manufacturing and installing the first ZIVA High Intensity Training Lab in Rio De Janeiro, where the athletes of the Brazilian Olympic Team would be able to train in preparation of the Olympic competition.

Ziva also signed a partnership agreement in 2012 with the Brazilian Swimmers Union Institute (PRO16) to develop licensed retail products under the stamp and signature of the Olympic Gold Medalist and World-Champion, Cesar Cielo Filho.

In 2013 ZIVA made a world-wide partnership agreement with Team Nogueira. Led by former UFC and Pride Fighting Championship legend Antonio Minotauro Rodrigo Nogueira and his twin brother Antonio to be the official supplier for any free-weight and accessories to all Team Nogueira present and future clubs opened.

ZIVA has now become a worldwide brand, but the company’s leaders don’t believe its success has been due to control or time management. To them ZIVA is a symbol of individual potential: its freedom and energy, and its insatiable hunger for progress and self-improvement. It stands for what is achievable when we put our minds to the task at hand and we are surrounded by love, encouragement, support and the willpower to change, and to simply be better.

The future for the great ZIVA community lies in maintaining that spirit.
