This week, creators of the FIFA-backed tech platform and fitnesstech app, Train My Athlete, launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs to raise £150,000 as they prepare to start marketing efforts to the American sports market and nonsporting institutions, including the NHS and private orthopedic hospitals.
“Professionals can address all their athlete’s sports science requirements by sending detailed and bespoke conditioning, rehab, recovery and diet plans direct to their smartphone/tablet so they can access them anywhere in the world. Plans are video supported from the apps video library or by professionals filming and uploading their own videos within seconds, creating a personalised solution for the communication barriers; ensuring athletes optimally manage themselves when help is unavailable.”
The app features include diet and workout planner; training analytics; team branding and more uniquely; and a two-way messenger allowing athletes to send their own pictures/videos to the professional. Sharing more details about Train My Athlete, founder and CEO Liam Hayes stated:
“Whilst working with elite athletes I was surprised to see medical departments resorting to paper plans or whatsapp messenger groups to communicate their plans, which seemed time-consuming, confusing and unprofessional for the athlete. It made it impossible for the whole medical team to work together for the athlete. Train My Athlete gives medical professionals just that, by connecting the Physio, the S&C coach, the medic and the athlete all in one place.”
Rob Elliot, goalkeeper, Newcastle and Republic of Ireland International, also commented:
“The app has been class. It’s been great to be away from the physios and still keep in contact, so it’s an important part of my recovery.”
Train My Athlete’s Seedrs campaign is set to run for the next two months.
