Your barbell

just got smarter.

Our team of former NASA engineers set out to change how
you think about fitness by developing a smarter barbell.



About Apollo Strength


As roboticists and aerospace engineers, we are no strangers to complex problems involving real world sensors, big data, and analytics. We also understand the need for data as it applies to working out and improving human performance. Although there are several fitness trackers currently on the market, none are as integrated, easy-to-use, accurate, or as durable as Apollo Strength.


The Team

Apollo Robotics is an advanced research and development start-up based out of Houston, TX, bringing together over 30 years of NASA research and development experience. This includes designing, building, testing, and operating some of the world's most advanced robots and robotic vehicles. We have built machines that are able to meet and exceed the toughest performance requirements and survive the harshest environments. Our collective experience brings a holistic systems approach that enables success. Apollo Robotics focuses on bringing embedded power, sensing, and electronics out of the lab and into the market, with rapid, focused product development and design.
