ViPR™ stands for vitality, performance and reconditioning. It is a truly functional, loaded movement tool that uses the freedom of movement to challenge how we interact with training equipment.
Training with ViPR is so effective because every exercise performed with this tool uses whole-body integration (WBI) and Loaded Movement Training (LMT).
What is Whole-body integration?
Parts of the body do not function in isolation, so ViPR exercises work the entire body across all three planes of motion for a full-body workout.
ViPR has an abundance of exercises to challenge any ability level and it can be carried, tilted, dragged, lifted, shifted, thrown, flipped and rolled – this is a truly versatile training tool.
What is Loaded Movement Training?
Loaded Movement Training combines task-oriented movement patterning with resistance training. Agility and strength come from moving the body in a multitude of purposeful tasks with load.
Movement is essential to training healthy bodies. The more we move in dynamic ways using our full body in training programs, the better we feel. Adding weight (load) to movement gives the body a double benefit – we learn to move better, and become stronger and fitter at the same time.
When engaging in Loaded Movement Training, every time your client moves, you are integrating the entire structure and their entire body in every movement they do. Every exercise becomes a core exercise, every exercise becomes a strength exercise, and every exercise becomes an agility exercise, to take into account the movement and energy demands of life and sport for that person.
