I started wearing a Whoop strap in July and have blogged several times about my experience.
The Whoop strap is a performance monitor that you wear on your wrist or upper arm. It measures your daily strain (how hard you workout), your sleep and your recovery.
I have been interested in wearable performance monitors for a while and noticed several folks in our gym who wear Garmin and Apple Watches. I'm most interested in tracking my recovery and after comparing all three models, I chose the Whoop because it tracks the metrics I'm most interested in, resting heart rate and heart rate variability and it cost only $30.
WHOOP and CrossFit just announced a multiyear partnership naming WHOOP the Official Wearable of CrossFit. The partnership will help athletes at all levels of the sport benefit from WHOOP data around training, sleep, and recovery. I am super excited about this partnership.
Eric Rosa, CrossFit CEO, was recently interviewed by Whoop on the details of this partnership and how it will benefit CrossFitters. Click on the plater below to listen to the podcast or go here to listen via Apple or Google Podcasts or via Stitcher.
