Absolutely. I've been thinking about that sort of thing, both in relation to basketball and my mother. In the former case, I think about how many repetitions it takes for a move to become so "natural" that the body makes it without the mind having to deliberate on what to do. In the latter, I'm struck by how "reps" are all my mother has for a memory-making capacity at this point. She can't make new memories that can be accessed with words or images, but her body can remember what it has done over and over and over.
