Working out at home? Don’t have access to all the equipment of a full CrossFit gym?
Use this hack from WODwell to find hundreds of great workouts using just the equipment you do have.
IMPORTANT: Don’t skip the last step!
Every athlete and fitness coach knows the feeling of being stuck and lacking the ‘fire’. The feeling of pulling up your favorite source of workout inspiration… and you just keep scrolling. The right workout doesn’t show itself; the workouts use equipment you don’t have. Or every workout includes that one movement you’ve been doing all week (burpees anyone?).
The precious time you carved out to improve your fitness is running out. So you pick the next workout you see and trudge through it. If you’re a coach programming for your clients, you feel like you’ve let your athletes down.
WODwell serves millions of functional fitness athletes and coaches, and our users tell us a common story: they come to find the ‘right’ workout for today and spend too much time browsing the the thousands of possibilities. WODwell has all the workouts but users needed a better way to filter them. …
Today, millions of athletes use WODwell to discover workouts. Now we’re building a way to help our users find and hire remote coaches online.
Why? Because one-off workouts will only get you so far on your functional fitness journey. Because 80% of our users are athletes and 20% are coaches. And because we’re excited about the role remote coaching has in the future of fitness.
With remote coaching:
35% of the coaches in a test we ran we ran over the Summer (to match athletes with remote fitness coaches) told us they got hired by at least one athlete.
That’s not bad for a low-budget prototype. Now we’re designing software to do it better.
After we ended that test coaches gave me some great feedback about how WODwell can improve the way we connect athletes with remote coaches:
And I’m excited to share that we’re using that feedback to design a brand new WODwell product just for coaches. …
Over a few weeks in Summer 2019 I ran a low-tech (and low-budget $0) test to see if I could help athletes, users of WODwell, who were looking for “remote coaching.” 30 coaches signed up. 100 athletes asked us to match them with a coach. What we learned excited us about the way remote coaching can make fitness available to anyone, anywhere — and how we can help.
UPDATE: In September, 2020 we launched our “Find a Coach” tool to help athletes find the right remote coach for them.
As WODwell’s audience grew to over 3 million fitness fanatics in 150+ countries, we increasingly received requests from athletes asking for a referral to a coach. …
Odds are if you’ve ever worked with a fitness coach it was in a group setting. But advances in technology and evolving preferences of both coaches and athletes* are changing that.
