WHOOP exists "to unlock human performance. We believe that every individual has an inner potential that they can tap into if they can better understand their body and their behaviors. … We summarize your sleep, your recovery and your strain, and we look at everything through that lens.” (Author's note, I changed the personal pronouns in the above and copied it from the WHOOP website).
Thanks to my teammate and friend, Justin Markel, I have been wearing a WHOOP strap for about two weeks now. I have a LOT to say about the positive impact it is already making on my life, but will save that for a later post.
I am writing today because of this podcast: Podcast No. 80: Pro Golfer Nick Watney on How WHOOP Warned Him of COVID-19
To be someone worth following, you have to be healthy. WHOOP gives one the ability to monitor real-time health data and make activity decisions on the data rather than relying on feelings and emotions. In Nick Watney's case, this meant getting tested for COVID-19 rather than playing one more round of tournament golf. His heroic action safeguarded many from COVID-19 exposure.
