We’re a husband and wife team: Lisa (Level-2, OPEX, and BirthFit certified coach) and Jeremy (business guy and tech entrepreneur). We’re dedicated parents of 3 and masters athletes.

It all started with Benchmark WODs

Coach Joe Masley joined the WODwell team in 2022 as Head Coach of our ELEMENT program. Joe is a member of the Seminar Staff for the leading functional fitness brand, certified Level-4 Trainer, affiliate owner, Boston Firefighter, former Games athlete, former US Marine, and father of two.

Before there was a wodwell.com, WODwell was on YouTube. In our first few years, we had a blast visiting dozens of gyms in 6 countries to film athletes tackling benchmark WODs.

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. We always thought this was a cool aspect of functional fitness.

Athletes who do this type of functional training remember the first time they heard of the benchmark WODs “Grace” or “Fight Gone Bad” or “Murph”, and probably thought “what is that, and how do you do it?

For Hero and Memorial WODs especially, the stories and dates are important and deserve to be shared. The workouts can honor namesakes, connect communities, and provide inspiration for the athletes honoring the fallen.

Making videos was fun, but we knew we’d never be able to make as many videos as there were WODs.

That was the spark for making wodwell.com an archive for benchmark WODs.

Over the next couple of years, this site grew to become the internet’s most popular curated source for functional fitness workouts from the global functional fitness community.

  • In 2019 we opened up our platform to allow coaches to post their own favorite original workouts directly on the site.
  • In 2020 we expanded our offerings to help people progress further on their fitness journey by helping athletes find and hire coaches to design custom training plans tailored to their goals and needs.
  • In 2022 we started offering daily training programs to answer the most common question users asked us: “What should I do today for my fitness?”

And we’re just getting started!
