Seattle, WA—Tuesday, January 24, 2017: Volt Athletics Inc. (Volt), the global leader in technology solutions for sport performance training, announced that they have closed a funding round of over $770,000. This investment brings Volt’s total funding to $3M.
The new funding will be used to develop new technologies, invest in strategic relationships, and push into new markets.
“We’re seeing technology’s role in athletic development grow globally,” says Dan Giuliani, MSAL, CSCS, Volt Co-Founder & CEO, and Adjunct Professor of Sport Performance at the University of Washington. “Athletes are demanding more than tracking apps, and we’ve been proving that our intelligent training system offers an affordable and effective solution for athletes looking to train the right way for their sport.”
While most fitness apps track what a user has already done, Volt actually tells the user what to do. Volt provides sport-specific, professionally designed strength and conditioning programs that grow and adapt to the user throughout their training. Using Volt’s proprietary intelligent training system, athletes can walk into the weight room with their unique training plan and trust Volt will deliver the proper workout for them, every time.
Volt works with tens of thousands of high school, college, and professional athletes and coaches around the world. Teams that use Volt have won numerous state, national, and professional championships.
“At Volt, we’re focused on providing all athletes and teams with affordable access to professionally built strength and conditioning,” says Giuliani. “Our technology is being used by athletes and coaches around the world, and this funding allows us to accelerate our growth and reach more athletes.”
Volt has a dynamic team of 16, including engineers, coaches, and athletes, with experience spanning through the sports and technology industries from Major League Baseball, NASA, Amazon, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Expedia.
Volt Athletics Inc. ® (‘Volt’) is a Seattle-based sports tech company that brings professional-level sport performance training to athletes and teams worldwide.
