WHOOP Labs is currently looking for participants in the following regions. Check back regularly as we’re expanding to new locations soon.
In a research study, you’ll complete a brief workout while wearing WHOOP hardware and apparel. Throughout the study, we’ll collect your performance data from non-invasive WHOOP sensors, in order to help improve our product accuracy and validation.
Workouts include a variety of activities for all ages and abilities, such as walking, running, cycling, functional fitness, breath work, and more.
We recognize that the recent increase in COVID-19 cases and the spread of the Omicron variant is concerning to many members of our team and study participants. WHOOP Labs requires all study participants to be fully vaccinated at the time of their study. “Fully vaccinated” is defined as having received your final dose of an FDA authorized vaccine at least two weeks prior to the date of your study. Booster shots are highly encouraged but not required at this time.
WHOOP Labs currently requires masks to be worn when indoors when participating in a study at a WHOOP Labs location. We do not require masks to be worn during outdoor studies.
Changes to your study reservation can be made through the Calendly link in your calendar invite. We ask that cancellations or rescheduling requests be made at least 24 hours in advance of your study so that we can make the slot available for other participants

If you are signed up for a study that requires physical activity, please come dressed to workout with sneakers or bring things to change into. If you are signed up for a study that does not require physical activity, please come dressed in whatever is comfortable for you. If a study requires specific attire or equipment outside of these recommendations, we will disclose that in the study description when you sign up.
We run both group and individual studies. Specific information on the nature of a study can be found on the study detail page.
Understanding demographic criteria of our study population is an important component of our research. Participants will be asked to provide this information at the time of their study, and complete a number of short forms acknowledging the confidential nature of our work, participant liability, and participant consent. We adhere to strict standards when it comes to protecting our participants. Your data is never shared beyond the confines of the specific study you are participating in.
