We do named benchmark WODs. They’re the workouts you test and re-test, the workouts you do to memorialize heroes and celebrate events. These 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 WODs and create videos that help improve your performance on those workouts – so you can 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.

Named Benchmarks & 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, so you can see how other athletes approach these workouts.
WOD Video Demos
We started WODwell as a YouTube channel, where we filmed athletes tackling named WODs and telling us about their strategies or thoughts on the workouts. Most of the athletes in our videos aren’t professionals; they’re normal athletes like us. They’re not promising to demonstrate perfect form or flawless strategy, just giving a workout a go and telling you what they thought about it so you can hear it from their point of view. All the videos we’ve created are listed as ‘featured videos’ on this site.
In addition to the WOD videos we’ve created ourselves, you’ll also find tons of other people’s WOD videos here on wodwell.com…some of which are actually of elite athletes making very difficult workouts look way too easy.
