In 4 months, I've made more gains than I did in 1.5 years on my own. I absolutely love this app.

We just had our spring tournament where we played 14 sets—and didn't lose A SINGLE SET! The girls were in great shape.

They are kicking the ball way harder than last year. They've out-jumped the plyo boxes so we have to get bigger ones!

Al Shorey
Darlington School

I love the ability to train with the personalized advice and guidance of a coach even when I'm on the road.

I have 20 years of coaching experience, and I could not have spent my money on anything better than Volt.

Zach Raber
Trine University

Like having a personal trainer for your phone.

app store review

I don't have time to build programs from scratch—so I don't understand why a coach would get anything other than Volt!

Joe Todd

Since we started using Volt a couple months ago, we have already seen an increase in strength and speed across our team.

I love this app! It's so easy to use and after every workout, I feel the burn!!

I am running faster than ever and my core has never been this strong.

Volt is a game-changer for us. We are definitely the envy of a lot of other athletic programs around the school!

Chris Adams
Shakopee High School

We had the fewest number of injuries this season and that is directly because of the Volt system.

Rich Carillo
Royal High School

Two years ago we struggled to have kids rep 135. After training on Volt for a year, we are repping 225!

Donnie Kerns
Buckeye Trail High School

These workouts are easy to follow and they kick your butt. Same way my college strength coach used to work our team out.

App Store Review

I am constantly getting comments from other coaches about how fit our team is!

Constantine Ananiadis

This app is not like the million other fitness tracking apps...it actually has science and research behind it.

Since starting Volt, not only am I 19 lb leaner, but this is the strongest I've been in years. Volt is legit!

Volt is the only program that I have used in all 20 years of coaching that resulted in strength gains during the season.
