Trending: A ‘punch in the gut’: Fast-growing Seattle startup eyes Bellevue after head tax vote

Via Volt Athletics.

Volt Athletics is raising more cash to help fuel growth of its intelligent strength and conditioning platform.

The 5-year-old Seattle startup just reeled in an additional $770,000, pushing total funding to date to $3 million. The 16-person company will use the fresh cash to further develop its mobile app that prescribes sport-specific workouts based on an individual’s goals and a variety of other factors. The idea is to utilize the smartphone and algorithms to help high school, college, and professional athletes build strength and mitigate injury risk.

Dan Giulani speaks at the GeekWire Sports Tech Summit 2016.

The company differentiates itself by focusing on innovating the delivery of training content and expertise, versus only tracking metrics and storing data. Clients include the U.S. National football team, University of Michigan, University of Nebraska, Clemson University, Red Bull Crashed Ice Team USA, Kenya 7s Rugby, the Denver Stampede professional rugby team, the Northamptonshire Steelbacks professional cricket team, and more.

Volt initially sold its software to teams, but last year it rolled out a $29 per month consumer app as well. The fresh cash will be used to develop both technologies.

“Both channels have seen tremendous growth, and this round enables us to aggressively expand our impact to more athletes,” Volt CEO Dan Giuliani told GeekWire.

Volt now has more than 3,000 teams and 60,000 athletes using its software, which is recommended by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, whose founder Boyd Epley is the company’s advisory board chairman.
