Pliability integrates with Whoop to offer personalised recovery

By
Pliability and Whoop’s integration recommends customised mobility routines to users
It identifies activities performed and body parts worked to inspire routines that boost recovery and performance
App analyses data such as sleep, heart rate variability (HRV), resting heart rate (RHR) and respiratory rate to select exercises that boost flagging metrics
Pliability was recently rebranded from Romwood (Range of Motion Workout of the Day)

Mobility app Pliability has integrated with digital health and fitness tracker Whoop to create a smart, personalised tool that helps users recover quicker and maintain optimal health based on their body data.

Pliability draws on a user’s metrics from Whoop, including sleep data, heart rate variability (HRV), resting heart rate (RHR) and respiratory rate, and uses them to assess what routines should be undertaken to improve performance. If it detects a low score in a particular area, it will recommend Pliability workouts that will boost the flagging metric. According to the team, suggestions can include routines with a focus on breathwork, longer routines to improve recovery and mindfulness routines to down-regulate the sympathetic nervous system.

“We purposefully don’t seek out integrations for the sake of it, but this is deeply complementary and will enhance the user experience for both parties, incorporating mobility and recovery in a smart connected fashion,” said Scott Perkins, founder of Pliability.

The partnership also enables users to maintain a consistent ‘strain’ level. When the overall strain reading is higher than ‘optimal strain’ (defined as the targeted strain level for that day based on recovery from the previous day), Pliability will identify the activities performed (such as running, swimming or cycling), and the parts of the body used, to inspire recommended routines that boost recovery in these areas.

Pliability has integrated with Whoop through its developer platform, which allows approved third party apps to deliver personalised coaching to Whoop members. “As a result of this integration with Pliability, we are creating even more ways for people to improve their holistic health and tap into new recovery modalities,” said Alexi Coffey, VP of product at Whoop.

Pliability was previously known as Romwood (Range of Motion Workout of the Day), but a rebranding was announced earlier this month. Its science-backed routines for stretching, breathing, and mindfulness are supported by some high-profile CrossFit athletes such as Tia-Clair Toomey, James Newbury and Noah Olsen, who saw a 33 per cent increase in his recovery metrics after using Pliability in Whoop.

“My biggest goal for Pliability is to educate our customers that no matter what their training discipline, movement is essential for a full life,” said Cody Mooney, Pliability’s director of performance. “We are providing mental and physical flexibility through our product.”
