Overview

Who We Are:

We started EXOS in the late ‘90s with the belief that human performance is for all of us. We felt strongly about this but weren’t yet sure how to impact the most people. Rather than confining ourselves to established industries such as healthcare, corporate wellness, and sports performance, we’re interested in putting people in the best position to take control of their health so they can succeed at anything. And so, we created a category of one and that’s why we are recognized for our platform of achievement that any organization can use to help all of its people reach their potential.

EXOS API Performance Internship Overview:

Performance never ends. While athletes’ careers evolve and goals change, one constant is the demand for staying at the top of their game, and pushing it to new levels.

That’s why EXOS develops personalized game plans for athletes around the world at any point in their career, from college tryouts to professional championships to retirement. We only do what works best for the team and every player. Our sports performance training is provided through a combination of in-person coaching as well as mobile tools and helpful online content. So teams and athletes always have useful data, insights, and expert guidance within reach.
