- [Instructor] So why did we become so interested … in measuring things that relate to our body … or exercise or performance? … Well, I have some hypotheses that I can run by you. … None of this stuff is research-based, … but it'll get you thinking. … The first reason, for me, is quite simple. … Quite frankly, other measurements have become too easy. … Cooking isn't nearly as difficult as it used to be. … We can buy sensors that tell us how much energy we're using … in our home during the winter … or if there's a water leak somewhere. … Computers perform calculations for us … in fractions of seconds. … You get the point. … Life just isn't quite as difficult for us … as it used to be in the past and, as such, … we can now turn our focus on other stuff, … like measuring our step count or our vitals … or our mile time progress. … Here's another reason that ought to make you feel good. … We, as humans, are obsessed with ourselves. … There's nothing we like talking about … or thinking more about than ourselves. …
