Societies | Free Full-Text | Exercise as Labour: Quantified Self and the Transformation of Exercise into Labour

The recent increase in the use of digital self-tracking devices has given rise to a range of relations to the self often discussed as quantified self (QS). In popular and academic discourse, this development has been discussed variously as a form of narcissistic self-involvement, an advanced expression of panoptical self-surveillance and a potential new dawn for e-health. This article proposes a previously un-theorised consequence of this large-scale observation and analysis of human behaviour; that exercise activity is in the process of being reconfigured as labour. QS will be briefly introduced, and reflected on, subsequently considering some of its key aspects in relation to how these have so far been interpreted and analysed in academic literature. Secondly, the analysis of scholars of “digital labour” and “immaterial labour” will be considered, which will be discussed in relation to what its analysis of the transformations of work in contemporary advanced capitalism can offer to an interpretation of the promotion and management of the self-tracking of exercise activities. Building on this analysis, it will be proposed that a thermodynamic model of the exploitation of potential energy underlies the interest that corporations have shown in self-tracking and that “gamification” and the promotion of an entrepreneurial selfhood is the ideological frame that informs the strategy through which labour value is extracted without payment. Finally, the potential theoretical and political consequences of these insights will be considered.

I keep my phone in the pocket of my bike jersey when I ride, so in a way you could say that my descent into Strava servitude happened behind my back. But in reality I did this to myself. I was a daily user and willing accomplice to the popular fitness tracker for 15 months---in fact, Strava is my all-time favorite app. It’s also my digital Achilles heel.

COM SALUD's curator insight, September 30, 2014 12:41 PM

Para hablar de las posibilidades de los wearables en la salud, desde la agencia COM SALUD hemos organizado el I Congreso de Wearables y Big Data en Salud, el próximo 18 de noviembre en Madrid. Profesionales de la salud, técnicos de sistemas, gestores sanitarios, laboratorios y desarrolladores darán su opinión sobre un campo que está llamado a cambiar la asistencia sanitaria. El esquema es similar al del I Congreso de Juegos de Salud, que organizamos en mayo, y que se convirtió en el segundo hashtag de salud en el mundo, y cuyas plazas se agotaron dos semanas antes. 

Art Jones's curator insight, October 4, 2014 12:46 PM

Excerpt:

He points to the modern smartphone as his evidence. It’s already given us the opportunity to fly through space (through maps or video conferencing), travel through time (through our photos or social networks), and increase our intelligence (through omnipresent Internet access). To him, wearables will just be “more literal extensions” of these powers. They’ll offer us everything from more coordination to improved hearing. And it’s the quest for these powers that will drive user adoption.
