"Words cannon even begin to express the amount of motivation and inspiration you have instilled in us after listening to you speak yesterday. We both went in the hopes that we would walk away with just one little tidbit of information to take back to the box with us, but we were given so much more! We walked away with an arsenal of knowledge to utilize not only in the box, but in our daily lives. Your desire to share the knowledge and wisdom you have gained over the years is contagious, and we cannot wait to get in our box on Monday to start making positive change, and to relay the new tools and skill set we learned from you. Thank you, once again, for your hard work and dedication to this sport."

— Matthew and Sarah Lucas

WaterWOD

WaterWOD at the 2011 CrossFit Games

A former NCAA Water Polo player at the University of California Santa Cruz and passionate about swimming, Greg Amundson created the WaterWOD to increase an Athlete’s ability to thrive in an aquatic environment.

WaterWOD workouts are divided into three categories:

1. Purely swimming workouts – Examples include:

  • 7 Rounds of 100 Meter Swim on 1:00 Rest
  • Freestyle Swim 1000 Meters for Time

2. Workouts combining dryland exercises with traditional aquatic sports – Examples include:

  • 3 Rounds for Time of 50 Meter Sw
  • Swim, 15 x 185lb. Deadlift, 30 Double-Unders
  • As Many Rounds as Possible in 15:00 of 100 Meter Swim x 25 Burpees

3. Workouts involving traditional aquatic sports – Examples include:

  • Open water kayak 1 mile for time
  • Stand-up paddleboard 1 mile for time

WaterWOD workouts are seasonal and operate between May and September. Some workouts are meant to be “active rest” with an emphasis on learning and playing new water based sports or practicing specific water sport techniques. For example, an “active rest” workout may include:

  • Spend two hours surfing your favorite break
  • Spend 45 minutes practicing your backstroke and freestyle flip-turn technique

We encourage CrossFit Affiliate gyms to host the weekly WaterWOD at their Affiliate or a nearby pool, lake or beach. We hope you enjoy the WaterWOD workouts.

To ensure you gain the full benefit of the WaterWOD, follow these three simple rules:

  1. Train Hard
  2. Get Wet
  3. Have Fun
