Headquartered in Phoenix, Phoenix, the world leader in optimizing the human operating system, said its founder, Mark Verstegen, M.S., C.S.C.S. Exos.

Since launching the company as Athletes & # 39; Performance 1
Exercise training focuses more on function and balance than on brutal strength and endurance, as studies have shown that imbalances and movement disorders are the most important factors The major cause of many injuries was design and workout structure: turning half of the gym into a turf field to slide sledges and perform movements like walking, setting priorities for the body (hips, torso and shoulders) and emphasizing rotation training They specialize in whole foods and balanced macronutrients and have emphasized the importance of muscle mass It heals and adapts, especially through sleep Mindset tied everything together and helped clients understand why the principles mattered and how to live them around the clock.
In the early days (and still today) Dozens Incorporate this approach with football players preparing for the NFL Combine and achieved amazing results. Nearly 50 percent of the first round of bankruptcy in 2018 were trained with the system of Verstegen. "Mark was the first to talk about the importance of screening for functional movement in 2001, not only in terms of the athlete's performance but also how he is injured and how he can adjust to other injuries due to his movement," says Thom Mayer, MD, medical director of the NFL Players Association. (Verstegen is his Performance Director.) "Fifteen years on and you see NFL doctors at the combine focusing on movement patterns – foot and ankle changes, the same in hips and shoulders.

Other coaches and managers in the world of sport and beyond soon realized this The system could help ensure that players with a healthy dollar remain healthy, which improves both the performance and the longevity of the career. In 2006, Exos began working with the US Navy and Special Forces to help develop and protect their "human capital." The military is better able to prepare the soldiers for their deployment, to help them return from an injury, and to support their transition to civilians Lian life. "I do not know what I would have done without the help of Mark and Exos," says former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, author of Lone Survivor and Exos-Regular. "I may have landed in a wheelchair" because he was killed in Afghanistan. Luttrell now visits Exos at least once a year for several weeks.
It was not long before American companies and Fortune knocked out 500 companies like Adidas and Humana and looked for a performance advantage. Like professional sports and the military, they knew that success was on the shoulders of their staff. Optimal productivity requires employees who are fit, healthy and motivated. Even more urgent, escalating healthcare costs, especially after the recession, weighed heavily on budgets. Verstegen knew you could not just get in and train office workers. Some of them were "non-movers" who dealt with health issues just as you did with top athletes. The key was to provide individualized programs – or "personal schedules", as he likes to phrase, in a manner that is effective under the circumstances (busy schedules, physical limitations, etc.). Visit Exos Journey in 2017, an application that creates and manages fitness programs for employees based on the four pillars.

It has been found that employees are more likely to use the system with the support and encouragement of a trained professional.

49-year-old Verstegen says he feels a responsibility – a word he often uses – to make his four-pillar system available to as many users as possible. He is not only interested in supporting elite populations. Exos, he believes, can help resolve what he calls a national crisis. "Reactive health care is broken," he says. "Seventy percent of the problems that clog our healthcare system are related to lifestyle. If we can remove them, if we get people to update the state of the disease, it's a win-win situation for everyone. "
