Introducing 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.
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 you move, you are integrating the entire structure and the entire body in every movement you 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.
By studying the body and its adaptations, we know that Loaded Movement Training 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 all aspects of life, and enhanced performance in every level of sport.
“Movement is the necessary antidote against disease and decay. Moving with external load creates strong bodies that can function with optimum effectiveness, thus Loaded Movement Training is an essential component of our training and conditioning programs.”

ViPR and Loaded Movement Training
You may be familiar with resistance training, core training, and agility training, a few well-known concepts in the fitness industry. These concepts use tools such as barbells/dumbbells (resistance), stability balls (core), and speed ladders (agility) and are all valuable forms of training for many fitness goals.
ViPR is a durable, portable and easy way to incorporate the new concept of Loaded Movement Training into your training routines, along with the concepts and products you know. There is no need to replace your current training methods; simply incorporate Loaded Movement Training into your existing training protocols.
ViPR was developed specifically out of a need to incorporate Loaded Movement Training into traditional training protocols in a safe and effective way. ViPR creator Michol Dalcourt invented ViPR after observing the way farm kids were always stronger in sport than kids who had grown up in cities and only trained in gyms.
The difference in their strength was simple – the farm kids were moving purposefully with load on the farms as they did their chores, without knowing it. They were moving things to different places and performing various tasks with weight. City kids mostly trained in a linear fashion, and did not incorporate much three-dimensional movement into their gym-based routines. It was not that the traditional gym training of the city kids was inherently bad; it was simply incomplete. Michol Dalcourt needed a way to fulfill this missing link in training and, from this need, ViPR was born.
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.
