NFLPA Provides WHOOP to All Active NFL Players
WHOOP Taps Into NFLPA Partnership Ahead of 2020 Season
WHOOP, the human performance company, and the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) are furthering their groundbreaking partnership that made WHOOP the Officially Licensed Recovery Wearable of the NFLPA. Following recent efforts by WHOOP to support a healthy return to sports for organizations ranging from the PGA and LPGA Tours to the Professional Lacrosse League and the University of Tennessee, the NFLPA is providing WHOOP Straps 3.0 to all active NFL players.
“Providing our players with WHOOP and its holistic monitoring technology as they return to work is in furtherance of the NFLPA’s mission to optimize players’ health, wellness and performance,” said Steve Scebelo, Interim President, NFL Players Inc.
Players have full ownership over their data and the power to track their own health with strain, recovery, and sleep through key metrics like resting heart rate, heart rate variability, respiratory rate, and sleep staging.
“I’ve had my WHOOP for months and I love it,” said Patrick Mahomes, Super Bowl MVP. “Heading into the 2020 season and with everything going on in the world, WHOOP has helped me understand my own training and health in a new way. WHOOP can support the entire league’s efforts in getting back to work – we want to play and do so safely.”
WHOOP will offer advanced onboarding and educational training to help players understand their physiological data as well as what changes from personalized biometric baselines may mean as it relates to increased stress or illness.

“WHOOP is proud to support the NFLPA and its players in getting back to work this season,” said Will Ahmed, WHOOP Founder & CEO. “It has never been more important for professional athletes to monitor their own bodies and take control of their health.”
WHOOP is the only consumer wearable with a third-party validated respiratory rate tracker that meets gold standard measurements per a study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine. Beyond performance and recovery, WHOOP has also been working with researchers from leading health organizations and universities to investigate COVID-19 symptoms, treatment, mitigation, and population health management. WHOOP recently released new research – which is under peer review – into the relationship between respiratory rate and COVID-19 which analyzed the potential for wearable technology to provide early warning signs of potential COVID-19 infections.
