At AIKYNETIX we have a team of endurance athletes and technology experts who are very passionate about solving real-world challenges by using computational sciences and innovative hardware technology.

The idea of improving on a runners personal best, and focus on the sport of running came from the CEO and co-founder of this company Denis Akhiyarov. Denis is an active Texas based runner whose career and personal interests were inherently related to physics, machine learning and high-performance computing.

This combination created a unique opportunity to explore and improve metrics for runners. Our company continuously searched for the solution that can better predict athlete's performance and running economy. It was the absence of a reliable solution on the market, and the desire to achieve measurable improvement, that was the key motivation for the creation of AIKYNETIX.

Anton, the COO, is a successful entrepreneur who contributed to this idea by verifying assumptions from market research, IP development and innovations from other sports. Both Denis and Anton are experienced with hardware and IOT applications for industry that translate very well into fitness applications.
