Humon today revealed its latest list of elite coaches and athletes endorsing the company’s muscle oxygen monitor.
Included on the list is Jamaican sprinter Briana Williams’s coach, Ato Boldon. This summer, Briana Williams upset the field to win U20 World 200m and 100m gold- Jamaica’s first since 2000. Over the past year, Williams,16, has stunned the world with her speed, earning numerous medals and setting a 15 year old world age group record in the 100m.
The Humon Hex is the first clinically validated wearable to monitor muscle oxygen levels in real-time, providing personalized training insights. Athletes are guided through a display of colored training zones that can be used to adjust pace on a phone, watch, or bike computer.
“Briana and I ensure that she’s training optimally through checkpoints to learn about the way her body is reacting to exercise. We know that muscle oxygen is the most accurate indicator of exertion and recovery. This type of monitoring is the future,” says Boldon, a four time Olympic medal winner and current ESPN and NBC track analyst.
More recently, UFC Flyweight champ Henry Cejudo joined the list of athletes using Humon- his coach revealed he had been leveraging Humon’s technology to monitor training intensity while prepping for the athlete’s fight.
“As a Clinical Exercise Physiologist working with populations ranging from circulatory and neuromuscular disorders to Olympic athletes…Humon not only exceeded our expectations and quality standards, but is also non-invasive, simple to use and comfortable,” says Kevin Longoria, Cejudo’s coach and CSO for Neuroforce1.
“I highly recommend Humon as a valuable tool to my colleagues and athletes of all sports & competitive levels.”
The Sensor That’s Changing The Way Athletes Train
“Muscle Oxygen is recognized among elites as the best metric for effort. Humon brings the benefits of this method to every athlete,” says Alessandro Babini, CEO and co-founder of Humon.
