the human performance company, today announced the “Thrive the Holidays”
challenge, a call to rise up and beat the stress of the season with
WHOOP. Starting on Black Friday through midnight on Cyber Monday
(November 24-27)—WHOOP is giving first-time buyers the chance to
purchase two WHOOP straps for the price of one so you can thrive the
holidays together. If you’re already on WHOOP, you’ll be eligible to buy
a strap at half price.
“From picking the perfect gift to family drama and dynamics to
struggling to stay fit—holiday stress has been identified, analyzed and
studied from every angle,” said Will Ahmed, WHOOP Founder and CEO. “But
until now, no one has provided a solution to thrive the holidays and not
simply survive the stress of the season. We’re answering the challenge
this year by making it easy for you and those you care about to get and
Thriving is not counting steps—WHOOP is moving fitness wearables in a
new, data-driven direction. The WHOOP Strap is waterproof and built to
be worn 24 hours a day on the wrist, forearm or bicep—monitoring Strain,
Sleep and Recovery. When paired with the Strap, the WHOOP mobile app
provides personalized analysis and actionable recommendations to tailor
your daily schedule and workouts, improve sleep and thrive all day long.
Here’s how it works:
Quantifying Stress and Strain
Workouts are just one piece of
the puzzle. WHOOP tells you how your body is responding to all the
stress and demands of your daily life. It provides a Strain score
between 0-21 that’s calculated from 100MB of data collected during your
day—from the moment you wake up until the moment you go to sleep.
- No matter your age, you will feel some level of stress during the
confirmed that from generation X to baby boomers, about 60 percent of
folks struggle to thrive during this time.
Restore Your Body with the Sleep You Need
From naps to
nighttime, WHOOP acts as a sleep trainer, recommending how many hours
you should sleep, along with analyzing your sleep performance—including
light, REM and deep sleep cycles. It also captures resting heart rate
and the ultimate measure of your physical fitness—heart rate variability
(HRV)—at the optimal times each night.
- Those late-night holiday parties and shopping will add up. In fact,
Heart, Lung and Blood Institute found that after several nights of
cutting back on sleep—even just 1–2 hours per night—will impact your
ability to perform as if you haven’t slept at all for a day or two.
Personalized Recovery to Thrive Each Day
WHOOP greets you as a virtual coach—sharing an easy-to-understand
percentage (0-100) and color code (red, yellow, green) that signals your
recovery level for the day. This takes the guesswork out of planning
your workouts and daily activities—you know exactly how hard you should
push your body.
- Use the holidays as an opportunity to recover and enhance your
well-being beyond the stress of the season. The American
Psychological Association found that almost 25% of adults report
extreme stress outside the November and December holidays.
Anyone who purchases a WHOOP during the “Thrive the Holidays” challenge
(November 24-27) will be eligible to join “Team Thrive”. Team members
