13x 1st place Ironman FINISHES
"At the highest level of sport, it's all about details. With Ember, I'm able to easily and non-invasively track and record my hemoglobin, pulse rate and five other key biomarkers. This data helps me and my coach better understand my body’s response to elevation, training load and more. Ember helps me more closely examine my physiology – the engine that drives my performance."
Track & Field World Championship Medalist and Olympian
"Over the course of my career, I've learned that being in tune with my body is absolutely essential for improving performance. I use Ember three to four times a day to gain insights into several of my critical biomarkers that I wouldn’t know without doing blood tests. The device is simple, painless and has become an integral part of my training sessions.”
triathlete and Ironman Triathlon champion
“I was excited about using a device that can so easily give me important feedback about my body’s response to training loads. Ember greatly impacts my training and recovery. There have been numerous times when we have seen that I am not recovering well from a training block or after a race (or after my recent bike crash). My coach and I have changed my whole training plan to allow for more recovery.”
Track & Field Mid-Distance Runner.
2x Olympian. OLYMPIC Silver Medalist.
“Since I started using Ember in February, I can see so much more information about my body. I really like being able to see all my data points over time. Knowing my numbers helps me to know I’m on the right track. This gives me confidence I can use in my training and my races to achieve greater success. If I didn’t have this data, I’d have a lot of unknowns.”
Professional Triathlete and Olympian
“I think that all athletes would benefit from an easy device that allows them to monitor their hemoglobin. Hemoglobin carries oxygen, so knowing what those numbers look like is an advantage. There’s also a big advantage to anybody going to altitude for training camps for periods of time. I found that once I got into the routine of testing morning and night as well as pre and post workouts, it was very easy. I was able to see my hemoglobin on a regular basis and see the effects of altitude on my body.”
“I love the idea of being able to easily monitor my hemoglobin and heart rate multiple times during the day. I have done blood tests, but it’s invasive, the results aren’t immediate – and the costs add up.”
Professional Triathlete 5x U.S. Cycling Champion
“Regarding my elevation training, I know A LOT more than I knew before. I think it will take a few trials to say for sure what is perfect for me as an athlete, but there’s no doubt I know more, and the longer I use the device, the more I learn. Ember is ideal for endurance athletes attempting to maximize their training and allow their bodies to reach their potential. It takes a lot of the guesswork out of altitude training as data compiles over time.”
"I absolutely think Ember gives me an advantage in competition because I know when I need to be going to altitude, I know when I can come down, Ember really allows me to get a big advantage because I can make informed decisions. I'm not just shooting in the dark."
“By accumulating data points and correlating it with my performance, I can see what hemoglobin levels I perform best at. I can then try to fine-tune my activities leading up to a race so that I can get my body to those optimal levels.”
"Ember was really important for providing insight into the efficiency of my training. The hemoglobin and pulse rate measures would let me know if overtraining was negatively impacting my training routine. In those instances, I would divert more attention to cross-training and other measures of improving endurance without running myself into injuries."

Professional Triathlete & Ultraman World Champion
"Using Ember biomarkers made me understand that hemoglobin and other biomarkers are not static. Hydration, sleep and other important parts of my daily lifestyle, not related to training, can positively improve my biomarkers and my triathlon performance. Now I can adjust my trainings as needed depending on my internal factors and the environmental circumstances".

"My season has been built around specific targets, using altitude camps as a major part of my build up for each goal. I have been able to track my progress and the effectiveness of each altitude block as well as aiding with recovery and adaption using the Ember device. "
USAT Level 3 Coach
“As a coach, I love data because it allows us to track the small, day-to-day and week-to-week improvements that can keep the athlete enthusiastic and engaged in the process. I also like the hard truth that data provides.”
Professional Cross Country Coach & Trainer
“With Ember, I was able to make adjustments to actual training routines due to seeing trends in the data. One of the athletes I train had his hemoglobin spike higher every time we did anaerobic workouts. The information was very useful to me because I didn’t realize how much just a little bit of intensity affected this particular athlete’s readings. I altered my training of this individual because of it.”
