Get Fit at Home with the VIPR Fitness Training!

Vipr Fitness EquipmentVIPR Fitness Equipment for Working Out at Home

Recently I was introduced to a fairly new piece of fitness equipment called the ViPR. (pronounced Viper). When I first laid eyes on it I had no idea that this Vipr fitness tube  was such a cool and versatile piece of equipment!

I was privileged to be able to try it for the first time at The Body Exchange, a bootcamp program that is exclusive to plus size women. One of the cool things about this place (currently they only have locations in BC) is how cutting edge they are with their workouts. Once you try a VIPR, you will be asking your own gym to get a few!

What is VIPR fitness training? Honestly,  the vipr fitness tube looks like a large rubber tube. And it is, but therein lies the simplicity! This ‘large rubber tube’ can help you perform an almost unlimited number of movements and exercises that simulate real life situations.

So, in reality, it is more than just an exercise tube. The vipr fitness tubes are weighted and come in several weights, lengths and diameters. They have hand grips in several locations on the tube.

Since a picture (or a video!) is worth a thousand words, watch this to get an idea. Honestly, it’s hard to describe just how versatile and fun the VIPR is!

Benefits of  VIPR Fitness Training

In my opinion the VIPR fitness tube is safer and easier to use than free weights. As you saw in the video, it enables you to simulate many everyday types of movement such as pulling, lifting, dragging, reaching and twisting. Because of the weight distribution of the VIPR, those movements are smoother (and thus safer) than when done with free weights.

Plus it makes you feel like a gladiator!Vipr Fitness Tube

The biggest problem with the VIPR is that it’s hard to find. Only the specialized gyms or higher end gyms have these things due to their priciness. Finally, finally they are now available on Amazon but for now I can only add this Vipr Exercise tube to my wish list.

I also would love to see a home DVD with a Vipr training workout, I’m sure that will come at some point.  In the meantime there is an app called  Virtual Trainer ViPR available if you are lucky enough to own this amazing piece of equipment.

Have you seen or tried out a VIPR fitness tube? If not, what is your favorite piece of equipment?

      It’s interesting that you say that because my physiotherapist has one of these in his rehab room! I think they are very good for physio.
