Vitality, Performance and Reconditioning

ViPR represents vitality, performance and reconditioning, three modalities of goal-based programming. ViPR is a total body workout utilizing a weighted rubber tube for cardio and strength training. Yano and students got a powerful intense workout in about 15 minutes of ViPR training. Students loved experiencing this revolutionary workout tool originally designed for professional Hockey players.

Origin of ViPR

ViPR  inventor,  Michol Dalcourt, worked with Hockey players and discovered that the highest performing players were farm kids. “When I finally analyzed what these kids were doing, it served to elucidate my training and program design. These farm kids were truly functional. Everything that they did was performed with varying loads, in all three planes, at various speed, and various ranges of motion: they called it chores. Moving farm equipment by hand, shoveling, lifting, squatting, crouching, rotating, lunging, pushing, pulling etc. They had an objective (i.e., loading a trailer with dirt), and their bodies got the job done, by integrating every body part.”
