Athlete Training Company EXOS Forms Partnership With BridgeAthletic

EXOS, the firm known for training NFL draft prospects, has formed a long term partnership with BridgeAthletic, a startup software company which counts coaches, trainers, physical therapists and athletes as clients. Financial terms were not disclosed. Under the agreement, EXOS will provide training videos and methodology to BridgeAthletic, which was founded in '13 by MICHAEL SHARF, a former All-American water polo player at Cal, and NICK FOLKER, previously the Cal Dir of Aquatic Performance. EXOS Founder & President MARK VERSTEGEN said the agreement helps the performance training company to carry out its mission of optimizing athletic performance all over the country. “Not only will EXOS coaches be able to better scale their reach, but individual athletes and industry practitioners will also be able to use the platform to access EXOS methodology,” Verstegen said. BridgeAthletic works with over 250 elite organizations including teams across every pro sports league and Power Five NCAA conference, as well as a number of NGBs and youth organizations.
