BridgeAthletic and Functional Movement Systems (FMS) have a new sports technology partnership allowing coaches, athletes, and trainers the opportunity to implement the company’s software to improve performance while gaining access to the many FMS movement assessment and reports. BridgeAthletic developed a revolutionary strength and conditioning digital system used by top athletes around the globe, including 28 percent of U.S. professional sports teams who performed over 1.5 million workouts on BridgeAthletic’s platform in 2021. The list of sports teams using the platform is impressive and feature the Seattle Sounders, Carolina Hurricanes, LA Rams, Boston Red Sox, San Jose Sharks, Calgary Flames, Houston Dynamo, and the LA Kings. After completing the FMS assessment, BridgeAthletic’s training engine will deliver personalized corrective exercises, alongside instructional videos, to the athlete’s mobile device via the BridgeTracker application. Last November, THE Sports Techie community blog curator chatted with Michael Sharf, Founder and CEO at BridgeAthletic, and Charlie Steffens, VP Business Development, about their sports tech company history, business model and innovative products. With this partnership, BridgeAthletic’s platform has integrated personalized corrective content and individual movement assessments into its market-leading training technology for strength and conditioning.
The algorithmic engine powered by BridgeAthletic technology and FMS data will enable coaches to more easily prescribe corrective exercises easily personalized for each athlete’s individual strengths and weaknesses. The budding collaboration aims to help coaches improve movement, performance, and injury prevention for as many professional, amateur and casual athletes as possible.
FMS Goes Digital
With the FMS implementation, BridgeAthletic is adding corrective exercises and routines, designed by the industry leader, to its growing instructional library of over 2,500 high-quality movements and thousands of workout program templates.
“We are extremely excited to launch this partnership with BridgeAthletic. Our goal at FMS has always been to provide movement data to assist the professional in achieving better outcomes,” said Lee Burton, Co-Founder at Functional Movement Systems. “The struggle for many professionals has too often been how to best implement the FMS into their program. The BridgeAthletic algorithms, reporting, and ability to auto-generate correctives solves this problem by saving time, making it much easier to incorporate FMS into any strength and performance plan.”
FMS’ methodology has been effective with all populations from high-performance athletes to elderly patients in rehab. Both FMS and BridgeAthletic work with some of the world’s top athletes within the NHL, NBA, MLB, NFL, collegiate, and tactical organizations.
FMS is an education company that produces and promotes principles and methodologies to enhance movement as individuals engage in physical activity. Their commitment is to provide fitness, healthcare, and performance professionals actionable steps to help people around the world first move well. Then, move often.

Sports Techie, my parents are in their late 70s and 80s, respectively, and have the typical performance issues most seniors face with strength, balance and recovery. My Dad still rides 20 miles on a road bike around the Boise area like he was in the 20s, while Mom walks around the Eagle, Idaho area as if she was a young women climbing the Andes mountains in her home country of Ecuador as a young girl. I am 56-years old and need to continually improve my power, flexibility and cardio levels so I can continue to perform like my parents do at their age and keep up with my nine-year old son on the autism spectrum. Kellan loves to exercise and do fitness related activities like hiking, swimming and now cycling. He is not too young to optimize his athletic movements, in fact, by learning how to correctly move while improving strength & conditioning, he’s doing the right things to prevent obesity, arthritis and mental cognitive decline many older people face.
I share this because no matter your age, athletic abilities and medical issues, help is on the way because of this arrangement between FMS and BridgeAthletic. Tell your coach, personal trainer and physical therapist, you want to train, workout, and then recover, just like the pro’s, while using your smartphone to record, track and engage with both custom workouts and informative videos. Then, share this blog with them so they can learn about the commitment by these companies to improve performances, no matter your age, athletic abilities or bio-mechanical issues.
Core, functional, personalized movement training using sports tech is the way.
An educated concept both FMS and BridgeAthletic already know.
