Meet Bobby

Bobby Aldridge is a Sports Kinesiologist, preventative pain management specialist and three-time author.  He has spent over three decades as an athlete, student, and educator of physical movement. He traveled with Andre Agassi from 1995-1998 when he was #1 in the world and currently works with PGA Golfers, Pro-Baseball Players and athletes of all levels. His mission is to help others move with ease, grace, and power to eliminate pain, reduce the chance of injury, and maximize performance with the help of metrics-based movements.

The road to his success was born out of necessity as he had to figure out how to pre-hab and rehab for himself throughout his career. 2023 was a grueling year of recovery for Bobby with two hip-replacement surgeries. With the help of his metrics-based system, his recovery was fast and effective. Now, the developer and founder of BAM-Metrics [Bobby Aldridge Method], he is sharing his metrics-based system used by professional athletes with you.

  • increase mobility

  • eliminate dysfunction while alleviating pain
  • prevent injury and increase performance
  • improve posture and functional movement

As a double Division 1 college athlete playing basketball and baseball, Bobby’s athletic success was plagued by injury. As early as his freshman year in high school he broke an ankle and tore ligaments in his ankle; in college, more torn ligaments including his MCL (medial collateral ligament in his knee when he slipped on an ice-pack), and then, a serious car accident causing lower lumbar injury in his back that threatened to limit his mobility. He fought hard to rebound and recover using conventional modes of physical therapy and was inspired to choose a fitness and health career path, eventually earning a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of San Francisco.

Bobby Aldridge Discusses the Benefits of BAMmetrics System

Bobby’s initial training focused on sport-specific strength training – measuring how many reps one can do and with how much weight. He soon learned that strength training in isolation was a recipe for recurring pain and injury, as a damaged rotator cuff, pain in both elbows, hip and groin strains, and two hernia surgeries followed. By the time he was 25 years old, certain movements became a challenge.   

He needed to find a way to make himself stronger and more mobile, not only to be a physically fit and healthy performance athlete, but to avoid repeated injury and strain. He shadowed and trained with experts that ran the gamut from orthopedics, physical therapy, and sports medicine to celebrity trainers, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and mind-body enthusiasts. The result of Bobby’s exploration and personal experiences led to the development of his universally effective BAM-Metrics-Based system– a proven combination of measurable movements that release the tension around the joints and stabilize the body enabling one to heal, strengthen and function better, no matter what activity one chooses to do. He soon found that his clients who played rotational sports, including golf, baseball, and tennis in particular, were improving and finding great success. 

BAMmetrics Bobby and SophiaBAM-Metrics (Bobby Aldridge Method) includes patented metrics-based products, including his Mat, Vest, Strap and Blox, which facilitate athletic performance, pain relief, and measurable mobility whether you are a 10 or 100 and no matter what type or level of activity you enjoy. Bobby now not only trains professional golfers and baseball players, he is entrusted by some of the world’s top resort and country club fitness programs. He partners with retailers as well as physical therapists who use his metrics-based products and functional fitness system, many of whom receive Continuing Education Credits (.8 CEU) through his BAM Certification Course.

Bobby has a bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sports Science from the renowned kinesiology department at the University of San Francisco and a minor in Business Management. He earned triple certifications in The Egoscue Method of postural therapy, for the relief of chronic pain and restoration of total body function, as well as a wide variety of sports training certifications including TPI (Titleist Performance Institute, Olympic Lifting and Golf), CSCS® (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists), NASM-CES (National Academy of Sports Medicine-Corrective Exercise Specialization), and ACE (American Council on Exercise).

Bobby is working to bring BAM fitness opportunities to lower-income schools and students. He currently lives in Northern California with his wife, two teenage children, and their 130 lb Newfoundland, Zen. His daughter is currently attending CAL Berkeley and wants to walk on the golf team while my son is attending the IMG Academy for baseball and just won the State Championship in Football.
