I believe Sanjam Kriya and Viriyam (a composite set of exercises covering breathing techniques, weights, circuits and yoga) are claimed to be used by the Nihangs.

These are however not unique to the Nihangs, attend any Martial Arts class with sufficient links to its Eastern origins and one can see this -for a real deal within Desi-circles, check out the Hanuman Akhara next time you're in India.

As per the UK Nihangs, I've seen Nihang Niddar Singh exhibit some terrific fitness whilst running through his Sanjam Kriya exercises.
