Create Programs in Seconds.

Whether you’re an experienced strength coach or have never worked in the weight room before, Volt’s customizable training programs help you save time and provide training to all your athletes.

Comprehensive programs, built by experts and optimized for:

  • Sport

    Our team of CSCS-certified strength coaches designs every program for the specific strength, endurance, and injury mitigation needs of each sport.

  • Position

    While every program focuses on training fundamentals, position-specific programs offer an added performance and injury focus for specialized positions (like pitchers and QBs).

  • Gender

    Based on injury rates among male and female athletes, Volt’s gender-specific programs contain different training considerations around upper-body strength development and ACL injury prevention.

  • Training Experience

    Choose from Level One (beginner) or Level Two (intermediate to advanced) programming for every sport, depending on the needs of your athletes.

Elite-level Strength Training

Peak for Your Season.

It’s not magic—it’s science. Volt automatically varies training volume and intensity over time to help athletes peak and stay healthy, based on the science of periodization.

Periodized training helps athletes:

  • Peak at the right time

    Periodization optimizes training results so athletes reach peak fitness when it matters most.

  • Mitigate injuries

    Periodized strength training has been proven to reduce sports injuries by over 66% and overuse injuries by 50%.

    British Journal of Sports Medicine, 2013

  • Stay fresh during the season

    Reduced in-season training volume allows athletes to maintain performance while improving durability.

  • Avoid overtraining

    Periodic “unload” weeks let athletes’ bodies acclimate to recent training loads to prevent overtraining and optimize performance results.

Adaptable to your weight room

You know your athletes.

You’re the expert on what your athletes need. Take Volt’s expert-built training and customize each program to your preferences.

Volt’s customization tools let you:

  • Replace movements

    Choose from 1,000+ exercises in our Movement Library to customize every workout for your equipment.

  • Add unload and off weeks

    Account for school breaks, finals weeks, and more by adding Unload and Off Weeks in your training calendar.

  • Post notes for your athletes

    Write notes to one athlete or your whole team—your athletes will see them at the top of their workouts.

  • Stay on Track

    No matter how many changes you make, Volt automatically adjusts your periodization so you're always tracking toward your goals.

Team Accountability

Build a Culture.

Create a strong team culture and empower your leadership with team leaderboards and accountability features—so your captains know who’s been putting in the work.

Personalized Weights for Each Athlete.

Based on each athlete’s strength, Volt prescribes exactly how much weight to lift—along with reps, sets, rest intervals, and more.

21st Century Tech in the Weight Room.

Athletes log each set from their easy-to-use Volt app, complete with technique videos and step-by-step instructions.

Automatic Strength Progressions.

Volt tests your athletes when they’re primed for strength gains. In-workout Challenge Sets automatically track their progress in your Analytics section.

Access Workouts Anywhere.

Throw away your summer workout packet. With Volt’s user-friendly mobile app, athletes can log workouts from wherever they’re training—even over summer break.

Nutrition Resources from GSSI

Backed by over 50 years of research from the Gatorade Sport Science Institute (GSSI), Volt’s Nutrition Center provides exclusive articles, videos, and printable, educational PDFs to share with your athletes about nutrition, hydration, recovery, and more.

Science-based Training

A Modern Training Philosophy.

Gone are the days of train-til-you-puke workouts. With decades of sport science research behind us, we know more about proper athletic preparation than the days of punishment sprints and no water breaks. Volt’s modern training philosophy means:

No Exhaustion.

Every workout shouldn’t leave your athletes on the floor. Good training means being intentional about when you give 100% max effort—so athletes are fresh enough to perform on game day.

No Failure.

When athletes train to failure, their form inevitably breaks down. With Volt, athletes train to perform by prioritizing quality over quantity, just like the pros.

Rest & Recovery.

Volt not only builds scientific rest intervals into every workout, but also encourages enough days off and recovery modalities (like foam rolling) to help your athletes maximize their gains.

Sport-Specific Programs.

While every athlete needs to build general strength and fitness, different sports require specific training and injury prevention methods.
