Volt Athletics® announced last week the launch of the first intelligent fitness training app built specifically for athletes. For the past three years, Volt’s research-based strength training platform has been available exclusively to elite teams at top schools. With this much-anticipated announcement, athletes everywhere now have access to professionally built sport-specific training programs.
Volt stands out in the crowded Health and Fitness app landscape by using patent-pending technology to create and deliver highly prescriptive workouts designed to improve athletic performance. While most fitness apps focus on weight loss and activity tracking, Volt builds comprehensive year-long training plans based on each athlete’s needs, to help them reach their performance goals.
“Volt’s mission is to provide all athletes with affordable access to elite-level strength and conditioning,” says Dan Giuliani, Co-Founder and CEO of Volt Athletics. “The best athletes train on a strategic plan; they don’t do random workouts. Volt’s intelligent training engine tells you exactly what to do in the weight room, how to do it, and when to do it. It’s not random—it’s the right workout for you, every time.”
Powered by proprietary technology, Volt analyzes simple inputs from the athlete to build their optimal training program. Volt’s intelligent training algorithms adapt and grow with each athlete, prescribing unique, sport-specific workouts as part of a long-term approach to physical development.
To ensure the training is based on the latest science and research, Giuliani, an Adjunct Professor of Sport Performance at the University of Washington and a certified strength coach, created the Volt Athletics Advisory Board, comprised of industry experts who oversee Volt’s training methodologies. The Board is chaired by the “Godfather of Strength and Conditioning,” Boyd Epley, who, according to ESPN, is “arguably the single most important individual in the history of strength and conditioning.”
“The technology behind Volt enables more athletes to train at a higher level than ever before,” says Epley. “Volt is changing the future of strength and conditioning.”
Individualized workouts are accessible via any device through the Volt iPhone app or mobile-friendly website and include specific instructions, sets, reps, and prescribed weights, as well as technique demonstrations. Additionally, Volt provides dynamic warm-ups, targeted injury prevention routines, and detailed metrics to track each athlete’s progress. Athletes can choose from over 40 sports, including golf, tennis, running, and triathlon.
Volt offers a free 7-day trial via their website and a monthly subscription for $29/month. For more information about Volt or to register for your own free trial, visit their website at www.voltathletics.com.
Volt has a strategic relationship with the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), the worldwide authority on strength and conditioning. In 2015, Volt closed its second round of funding, helping position the company as the global leader in technology solutions for sport performance training. Thousands of high school and college coaches, private trainers, and facilities around the world already use Volt’s team-based product that was released in 2013.
