What Is a WOD? Find Out & Get Started!

When you start CrossFit training, you’ll hear about WODs. Since CrossFit may be quite different than other exercise programs you’ve tried, you may wonder what this is. Gyms in Rock Hill, SC that offer quality CrossFit training will use WODs as a major part of their workout program. Here’s what the team at CrossFit Rock Hill wants you to know about WODs:

  • What is a WOD? – WOD stands for workout of the day. These are planned workouts to help you get the most out of your time at the gym. It guarantees new workouts and something to look forward to every day. WODs generally last around 20 minutes and are for everyone, regardless of skill level.
  • Can I find out what the WOD will be? – We list two different sets of WODs on our website: WOD Standard and WOD Endurance. Just click on WODS in the menu to find both. The WOD Standard schedule is posted weekly and the WOD Endurance schedule is posted daily.

The WOD is just one way CrossFit is different from other traditional gyms in Rock Hill, SC. Don’t settle for ordinary sessions with a personal trainer. Whether you’re exercising for weight loss or to improve your overall fitness, CrossFit Rock Hill is the place for you. Call for more information or stop by if you’re looking for CrossFit near you.
