What is ViPR?

Vitality. Performance. Reconditioning

ViPR bridges the gap between movement and strength training. It combines full-body movement with load, enhancing the vitality, performance and reconditioning goals of clients and athletes. ViPR introduces a new concept in fitness and sports conditioning – 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, just like back on the farm.

ViPR was inspired by farm kids who moved with load in daily life and who were stronger than any other competitors in sport. With ViPR, we can produce farm-strengthened bodies anywhere, without ever setting foot on a farm, without doing a single chore, in a fun, safe and effective way.

As ViPR creator Michol Dalcourt explains, the science of movement supports integrating Loaded Movement Training using ViPR into current training protocols for all fitness goals.

Why ViPR?

By studying the body and its adaptations, we know that Loaded Movement Training with ViPR effectively challenges and conditions muscle, fascia, nerves, skin and other systems of the body. Science shows that moving with load improves balance, agility and dynamic strength, to reach goals such as weight management, improved functionality in daily life and enhanced performance in sport.

Increased functional mobility and agility

Improvement in multi-directional stability, strength and power

Enhanced balance, timing and coordination

Increased calorie burn during and after workouts

All ViPR movements can be regressed and progressed to fit the fitness level and goals of each individual. Our program design methods make creating ViPR programs easy. For ready-made ViPR programs, click here.


“ViPR was created from a need to foster purposeful motion and blend strength training with functional training and movement. Movement is fundamental. And what makes up effective movement is a blend of lifting, shifting, and twisting. Integrated movements like these become incredibly effective at producing results when combined with load.”

The ViPR Group Fitness (VGF) programs have been developed by a team of highly skilled industry leaders who not only have a sound knowledge of ViPR scientific principles, but a practical understanding of instructor needs. The programs have been created and structured in such a way that instructors can choose whether they use them in their entirety or create their own exercises. They have the freedom to choose what is best for them and their class.

With society increasingly time-poor and an ever-increasing market for quick but effective workouts, VGF programs utilize a 30-minute class construct for both physiological and psychological reasons.
