Wodfinder.com : All the WODs in one place!
 
I wanted to let everyone know about a website a friend and I just put together to draw more attention to all the great WODs that our growing number of affiliates are putting out there every day.

As a Crossfitter, I've always been curious to see how other gyms program their WODs, and love to see the photos and videos that get shared through affiliate blogs.

For trainers, this is a great way to keep up with how other gyms are programming, and build a stronger presence in the community by having your WODs included on the site. You can also search across all the WODs, so you can see how many great workouts include kettlebells, for example.

Right now the site aggregates ~100 blogs and growing. Please email me or msg me on the board if you'd like to suggest a blog to include.

So, get your dose of daily WODs from across the world by visiting one site. We have a simple mobile view that will work automatically if you visit the site on a smart phone or iPad as well.

We've got lots of ideas for where this will go, but we'd love to hear your feedback first! Check it out and let us know what you think!

this looks great! how do we see the actual wods though? it seems like all the headings are blog posts, not specifically wods. I love seeing all the blog posts too but is there a way to only see wods posted?

Re: Wodfinder.com : All the WODs in one place!
 
Glad you like it! As you noted, some posts from affiliates (or blogs we all love to check otherwise) write posts that don't include workouts, and in other circumstances the actual WOD will be toward the end of a post.

Personally, this is why I love reading them. I get to experience a bit of the context that these WODs are presented in. To aid in the 'discovery' aspect of the WODs however, we have "tags" that show particular keywords that are included in a post. For example, you might see a "Fran" keyword on a post, and know that somewhere in that post they mentioned Fran. I can't guarantee that it's a post about doing Fran vs. the blog mentioning a member named Fran, though.

Also, if you mouse over the "Preview" button (or click open an entry on the mobile site), you'll see a text-only preview of the blog content, so you can get a quick peek before you click over.

If you have some ideas of how we might best present the content though, I'm all ears! We want this to serve the Crossfit community and would love any feedback to help us make it a better experience.
