General Physical Preparedness (GPP)
Our General Physical Preparedness program is the meat and potatoes of The MVMT Lab. And, yes this curriculum is for everybody. We pride ourselves on being able to modify the workouts to accommodate each member and their fitness level. From professional athletes to sedentary men and women just looking to lose weight, our program can have a life changing impact. We believe if you have a body, you’re an athlete and you ought to train like one. All you’ve got to do is show up.
What is GPP?
It’s all in the name. General Physical Preparedness (GPP), which in our case is functional movement, is designed to build the most broad, general, inclusive fitness possible. It says fitness isn’t what you look like; it’s what your capable of. Governed by measurable performance, we can help students look, feel, and perform better. Period.
It’s too damn effective to ignore. It’s our view that we ought to be as flexible as we are strong, and fast as we are agile. Life is a mixed bag of events, and GPP is the single best training strategy to prepare for the unknown. It’s our view that the most fit people are ones with a capacity across the board, not just one particular area.
Everything starts with the mind. Chances are you may have been mislead this far as to what health and fitness looks like. Believe it or not, our students have changed their minds more than they’ve changed their bodies. Living a life of fitness can be fun, effective, and sustainable. We utilize functional movements. These movements, often found in nature, do a great job at doing a great deal of work quickly. Think squat, push, pull, jump, run, press, and throw as opposed to bicep curls and crunches. You’ll learn the basic of gymnastics, running, jumping, Olympic weightlifting, and powerlifting. We cover our bases with regards to performance by practicing training that’s constantly varied. Our program is light, it’s heavy, long, short, and there are intervals. Whether life presents a sprint or a marathon, you’ll be prepared. We believe in a skill-based approach. If we can understand skill, we can understand the possibility of increased efficiency. It’s not about just doing more work than the next person, it’s about doing it better and easier.
Our team works 1-on-1, in private sessions, with individuals to support their life, athletic, and longterm goals. Whether you have a rigorous job, need help with accountability or consistency, or have a specific athletic goal in mind, our trainers will hand make a program designed to fit your needs.
What does that even mean?
That means that you’re going to come in and participate in the age old Olympic sport of weightlifting. Maximizing your potential to move large loads from ground to overhead. Simply said, but not simply done. Weightlifting isn’t just a sport of strength or speed, it is a true expression of knowing yourself and understanding the absolute value of patience. I don’t care how much weight you move, how fast you move, but how well you move and the rest will fall in place. Come learn the basics, in a basic way. Master simplicity in these movements and achieve the complicated. Step by step.

TRAINING IS MOVEMENT.
MOVEMENT IS LIFE.
Fitness means to functionally train in a way that develops competencies in physical skills and enhance the three main metabolic pathways, so that, we are prepared for the unknown of labor and delivery. Women should work out while they are pregnant.
In fact, it is the most important time in our lives to stay fit and nourish our bodies. Unfortunately in our society, there are a lot of misconceptions regarding pregnancy and fitness. A lot of what is out there is either outdated, or not supported by the current scientific literature. The book Exercising Through Your Pregnancy by Dr. James Clapp presented a ton of research when it was first published in 1998 but never made mainstream media headlines. This is whereMVMT Mama comes in! We are here to bring that information—and more—to light, and to support you, moms and moms-to-be!
