MISSION

AN IDEA BORN FROM THE MOST BASIC HUMAN NEED — MOVEMENT

It’s 2006

Airborne soldier Dave de Vries is working on a base in southern province Uruzgan,Tarin Kowt. With minimal equipment and grueling hot weather he starts searching methods to start training. Normally he likes to do survival runs, running, fitness and body exercises. Within two weeks a small place was build to train with sandbags, kettlebells and a suit with weight in it.

After four months of hard training the mission was over and he returned home. The first thing he did was entering all kinds of competitions; survival running, running, team strongman races. At all races he became first and people were suprised. A new routine of training was born, weighted training.
