DVRT Education: Putting the System Ahead of the Tool

It’s actually beside the point that DVRT, or Dynamic Variable Resistance Training, involves the use of sandbags. As CEO Josh Henkin explains in this interview, the tool is just the tool. What DVRT teaches is actually a very smart approach to understanding, evaluating, and improving human movement that can help you deliver better results for those you train.

Now also closely connected with TRX and Dragon Door, DVRT has been featured by Details, The Wall Street Journal, Shape, Men’s Health, Oxygen, and even Access Hollywood, and the DVRT system has been rolled out in over 80 countries with ongoing certification programs in 15.
In our interview, Josh explains the DVRT approach and all the reasons you might find it useful for your gym business and your customers.
