Our mission is to inspire and fuel the world’s functional fitness
- Curate the most popular WODs (workouts of the day) in the functional fitness community and make it easy to find the one you want, when you want it.
- Make workouts easy to understand and tell the stories behind them. Explanations, scaling options, movement demos, warm-ups, and more. Make functional fitness accessible.
- Help athletes reach their goals by connecting them with coaches behind the WODs; some of the best trainers in the world who offer workout programs and coaching.
In 2018 we made this video for a fundraising campaign to show people who we are.
It started with Benchmark WODs
Before there was a wodwell.com we made benchmark WOD videos on YouTube. Benchmarks are the workouts you do to test your fitness, memorialize heroes, and celebrate events. The coaches who design them give them names and they become part of the shared language of the global functional fitness community.
For Hero and Memorial WODs especially, we think the stories and dates are important and deserve to be shared. The stories behind workouts can honor namesakes, connect communities, and motivate athletes.
We had a blast filming at gyms around the world and racked up a few million views doing it. But we knew we’d never be able to make as many videos as there were WODs.
That was the spark for making WODwell an archive for benchmark WODs.
Over the next couple of years, WODwell grew to become the internet’s most popular curated source for functional fitness workouts from the global functional fitness community. Later we opened up our platform to allow coaches to post their own favorite original workouts directly on the site.
We then expanded our mission to help people progress further on their fitness journey by helping athletes find and hire the coaches behind the WODs to design training plans tailored to their specific needs.
And we’re just getting started!
