Olympic coach and IKKOS inventor Sean Hutchison wanted to help his athletes achieve their dreams. Recognizing that legendary athletes win because of specific, repeatable motions, he became driven to find a better way to teach movement. Devouring scientific literature on neuroplasticity and partnering with videographers, sound designers, neuroscientists, and other experts, he invented the unique IKKOS approach to movement learning.
As a company, IKKOS started with consulting relationships with sports teams, including those at some of the top universities in the United States. Building on these experiences, Sean and his team realized that IKKOS could grow to global scale, giving everyone affordable and effective access to brain-based movement learning. IKKOS products immerse learners in IKKOS training and guide them to better technique within ten minutes. Learners can easily compare their movement to the model and share the results with friends or clinicians.
Best of all, IKKOS gives people a deeper understanding of their own potential. There is nothing quite like the feelings of surprise, pride, and accomplishment people experience when they quickly master what they thought was impossible.

About the Name
IKKOS (pronounced E-kos) is named after Ikkos of Tarentum, the first recorded Olympic coach in ancient Greece. Ikkos was known as “the trainer of champions”. After winning the pentathlon at the 84th Olympiad in 444 B.C., he became known for his coaching ability and led two fellow Tarentine athletes to win the same event. We brought this Greek theme in highlighting a dimension of our team members. We know IKKOS is Greek, and that some of the names we chose are Roman. As a global team with big dreams, we’re ok with that.
