The Viper, for those who are not familiar, is a unique piece of equipment that simulates rope climbing. The Viper happens to be available in three distinct models – V250 weight-assisted, VMX multi-mode and the VLT compact – which is the model I have at my facility. Each model allows for seven different levels of resistance, ranging from one (1) being the easiest to seven (7) which is the most challenging. Its comfortable, 1 ¼” diameter rope operates on an “endless loop” and is designed to allow for bi-directional work. This bi-directional feature is one of the many aspects that make the Viper so flexible in its many uses. The Marpo VLT Compact Rope Trainer can be utilized to emphasize strength, cardiovascular/cardiorespiratory fitness or both. It can also be used for rehabilitation work – especially for the shoulder area and arms - and can also be valuable in preventing injury. The Viper does not discriminate against an individual’s level of strength, conditioning or physical contraindications. Because of its capacity to allow for multiple plains of exercise and the various resistance levels, I can comfortably state that most anyone – young or old - can utilize the Viper Marpo VLT Compact Rope Trainer in some capacity.
