Athos Story

Athos is helping people reach their fitness goals by enabling them with technology that was previously reserved for elite sports performance institutes.  By redefining how we measure fitness and performance we believe that we can help people stay fit, improve their performance, and reach new heights.

Who We Are

Co-Founders Dhananja Jayalath and Christopher Wiebe were frustrated by their workouts in the gym. They felt like there was no way to know whether they were working out correctly, and what they needed to do to improve.  Being able to afford a personal trainer wasn’t an option for these cash-strapped students, and as electrical engineers, both thought there could be a frictionless way that hardware technology could collect this data from your muscles. With no solution available in the marketplace, DJ and Chris set out on a mission to help people improve their lives by providing actionable insights without disrupting their existing routines. Athos was born out of the principle that we can all go beyond what we thought was possible with the right tools.
