What is ViPR Training

ViPR pronounced 'viper' is a hollow tube with strategically placed cutouts for handles and has no hard edges. It's not designed to replace dumbells, barbells or kettlebells, but rather to enhance a workout bringing in elements of functional fitness, it is the evolution of free weights and is suitable for any fitness level.

ViPR stands for:


In the gym people do not move in the same way that they do in everyday life. You will rarely see people move a load through a field of gravity during the workout. Usually they just move the load up and down. At the heart of ViPR training is the concept of whole-body integration (WBI). WBI means that the body is more effective and efficient, while loading these movements will create accelerated improvements.

More reasons why I love them:

  1. Most ViPR exercises incorporate full-body movement patterns. Our lives are full of varied movements, so our workouts should be too. Plus, the more muslces worked in an exercise the more calories are burned.
  2. ViPR's high intensity interval workout will increase your metabolic rate throughout the day, which, with a healthy diet leads to greater weight loss.
  3. No Gym membership needed. The best place to use the ViPR is in the park and exercising outside is always better then indoors.
