Enhance Data-Driven Program Design with GymAware + BridgeAthletic Integration
BridgeAthletic and GymAware have integrated their software to centralize weight room data, monitor exercise data, and save coaches time. With the integration, athletes can record workouts via BridgeAthletic apps, and GymAware will monitor velocity on key movements, syncing data to BridgeAthletic automatically.
What is the Integration and How Does it Help Coaches?
With the BridgeAthletic and GymAware integration, your GymAware VBT data syncs into BridgeAthletic’s program design software so you can view all Weight Room data in one place. GymAware data syncs regularly without any work on your end, so you can focus on coaching your athletes.
There are 3 key reasons to integrate BridgeAthletic and GymAware data:
- Adapt and improve individual athlete workouts: with the integration, teams have the optimal training experience to monitor exercise data, including velocity, to better adapt individual athlete workouts
- Centralize data: coaches can view all their weight room and training data in one place without clicking from one application to another
- Save time and be more efficient: streamline multiple technologies and workflows and spend more time coaching
How It Works
Athletes can perform and record their workouts via BridgeAthletic native apps, leveraging GymAware to monitor velocity on key movements. From there, all of the velocity-based data tracked in GymAware will sync to BridgeAthletic without any manual data entry needed by the coaches or athletes. Coaches can take this intelligence and easily adjust programs via BridgeAthletic to better adapt training.
Data included in the integration (GymAware to BridgeAthletic):
- Average and Max velocity
- Conc mean velocity
- Conc peak velocity
- Conc peak power
- Conc mean power
- Conc peak force
- Conc mean force
