We do benchmark WODs. They’re the workouts you test and re-test, the workouts you do to memorialize heroes and celebrate events. Benchmarks are the WODs you give names to, so they become part of the common language of athletes around the world.
Our mission is to curate, and organize benchmark WODs and create videos that help improve your performance on those workouts – and increase your fitness.

Functional Fitness Influencers
We’re a husband and wife team (Jeremy and Lisa) – both low-level competitive CrossFitters (Lisa a Level-1 Certified CrossFit coach) who started WODwell in 2014 as a YouTube channel for benchmark WOD videos. Then in 2015 we launched wodwell.com as an online archive for benchmark workouts. We didn’t set out to become functional fitness influencers but we now reach over 2 million users per year.

Benchmark & Hero WODs
If you’re a CrossFitter you remember the first time you heard of “Grace” or “Fight Gone Bad” or “Murph,” and though “what is that, and how do I do it?” We’ve made it easy for you to find named WODs (by name, by movement, by equipment, etc.), get the details of those workouts, including sometimes the origin of the workout – plus a growing list of WOD videos.
You can also use this site to discover new benchmark workouts based on the equipment you have or movements you want to do.
WOD Video Demos
We film athletes doing benchmark WODs (see our YouTube channel) and talk to them about their strategies or thoughts about the workouts. Most of the athletes in our videos aren’t professionals. They’re not promising to demonstrate perfect form or flawless strategy. They’re just giving a workout a go and telling you what they thought about it, so you can hear it from their point of view. You can see how those athletes performed and come up with your own strategy for each workout.
