More About Us:

Since we started, Athos has been translating Electromyography (EMG) into a simple and powerful training system. From cueing how you use your muscles, evaluating movement progression and monitoring when you are at risk of injury throughout you training; our system will help athletes reach their highest potential. By giving athletes and coaches this unprecedented insight into muscle performance, they better understand what the body is actually doing in the days, weeks, and months of preparation for the days that really matter.

Athos is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status or disability status.

If this sounds like a good fit, we’d love to hear from you!

About Athos

We build better athletes* by helping coaches and athletes know what's holding back their performance and why - down to the muscle! Then help design better training and see how they are getting better. We do this, by athletes wearing our smart clothing that has (EMG) sensors built in, that measure what's happening at each muscle. These shorts and shirts are machine washable, dryable, and feel just like your favorite compression gear.

Company Culture

We are a fitness company, if you like sports, or being competitive, working hard, working out, and having fun. This is the place to be. We have a good mix of Athletes, X- athletes and never been athletes that like to solve hard problems and change the way everyone trains.
