GYM PROGRAM FOR COVID-19
What You Get
Here's a look at what's included with every session plan.
7 Session Plans a Week
Each includes a customized warmup, videos and detailed notes for coaches.
Articles and videos to help coaches improve all areas of their life — fitness, movement, communication, culture-building, and so on — because we believe in the continuous improvement of the whole person. These are delivered via session plans and the Facebook group.
Private Facebook Group
Connect with other gyms around the world to learn from their experiences. Plus, Pat hosts weekly Facebook Lives in the group to answer questions, discuss an article or video, and to talk about current events.
Monthly Zoom Huddles
Sometimes we workout together, sometimes we interview a gym owner to get their actionable advice on a specific topic, and then sometimes our goal is to connect with one another to talk shop and share some laughs.
Direct access for questions and support
We are not just “the face” of the company — we write the session plans too. No revolving door of programmers here! Which means you’ll always have direct access to the people behind the program, us. :) Our Facebook Group community is awesome at helping each other too!
A culture that values resiliency and authenticity
We are a people-focused business, as are the gyms who choose to work with us. By sharing resources in our session plans and private Facebook group, we’re here to help you build a culture that values continuous improvement, generosity and respect for people.
Plans written by coach developers
At one time, we oversaw 70+ coaches in one region! The key strategies for taking those coaches from average to awesome were solid mentoring and detailed session planning. We have a unique mix of coaching development and session planning experience, and we’d like to offer those skills to you to advance our mission: Fitness for everyone, for life.
Frequently asked questions
Building Resiliency in Communities
Many of our members have switched from strength-biased programming and are loving life.
“I just wanted to share some data with you. We’ve been using WUWO since April. We took a little heat when we went from what we had been doing, which was strength + metcon or the occasional skill + metcon, to the traditional CrossFit model that is WUWO.
Over the last two days, I believe we completely silenced the critics.
On Tuesday, of 20 athletes with previous Annie times, 19 PR’d. On Wednesday, of 68 athletes that came through our doors (roughly a third of our membership), 66 set a 1 rep max if they had not previously recorded one (brand new members) or PR’d. Myself included with a 5lb lifetime PR of 420. This is a mix of new athletes and athletes that have been with us since we started in our garage a little over two years ago. Thank you again for the awesome service you provide.”
“I would just like to say thank you for your amazingly detailed programming. We are just heading into our 6th year of affiliation, and this is the first time we have ever outsourced programming. Before, I had always seen it as cheating and I assumed I had to program to be a good coach. I was nervous about what the members would think when we told them.
BUT!!! Since we signed up with Warmup & Workout at the beginning of 2016: Our membership has doubled. We have hired a new full-time coach. We have time to focus on coaching instead of programming. We have become better coaches, as we are coaching classes that take us out of our comfort zone. And my husband and I have a little more time together to spend with our family. It has been a massive success, and we would like to thank you for making our lives a lot easier and our members happier.”
“I’m a biased-program coach, so for the 7 years I’ve been programming, I totally went against what they teach us in the L1.
I never did mono days or gymnastics days. I love lifting heavy and slow, and frankly, CrossFit hurts, running sucks and gymnastics progressions are slow and boring. So I program the way I workout.
I totally missed the chance to develop well-rounded humans. At first, I was worried. The meatheads in the gym grumbled because we were following a non-biased program. I had no idea that I was actually injuring people — barbells every day, squats 2x a week, Olympic lifts… The general public doesn’t need that, and class, the way you program it, is healthy long-term and FUN.
Now my clients love it. Injuries went way down. And people feel better. I’ll never switch.”
“I have to admit that when I first opened in 2011, I tried to fit as much as possible into each class, as this is the way it had been in my old box. It was a fear of mine when I first signed up for your programming. What I realise now, after also completing the Level 2, is that it was too much.
Programming strength and a metcon left little time for an appropriate warm up and little time for coaching. Using your programming and what I learned at the Level 2 has brought a whole new feeling to the box.
Our members are learning new skills and getting stronger and moving better because we have the time to coach them during the warm-up and workout prep. Our membership still continues to grow, and our athletes are happy.
I even said to my partner last night that I do not know how we fit strength and a metcon in before. It was crazy. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and Taz for the programming. It has saved us lots of time to focus on training new coaches and building the business.”
- “The programming has been on point. I have made some considerable gains since starting a few months ago. My front squat 1RM is up to 355, triple at 325 with my previous 1RM being at 305. I’ve made some considerable improvements with my shoulder stability and strength even with torn labrums. Squat snatch was only at 170 but has since gone up to 205. I really appreciate your help. You guys have been awesome.”
“We have been in business for nearly 9 years, and programming has always been the thorn in our side. Our programming has certainly been progressive, but so has the time dedication.
WUWO came directly off the heels of our Level 2 Certification. Our change of coaching style blended seamlessly with our new programming. Having a complete daily syllabus to follow takes all the logistics out of our hands. We simply execute!
A piece of the puzzle we didn’t see coming is the ease of mind knowing that our athletes are taken care of when we aren’t coaching ourselves. We train our coaches to follow the daily syllabus with precision, adding their flair, knowledge, and energy. This has created an entirely different atmosphere.
The response from our athletes has been all positive. They are enjoying the warm ups and mobility. The WOD’s have more focus, so athletes have increased their intensity without sacrificing form.
As a small business, paying for programming has never been in the cards. Making the decision to go with WUWO has been a great decision. The time that was dedicated to programming each month can now be divided into coaching energy and personal time.”
Generally, humans prefer to do the type of training they need the least. Barbell lovers want daily strength work. Metcon lovers want that cardio. The aim of our program is to get your people more fit across ALL physical skills: respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.
June 2020 — Project Inverted
We’re bringing back some sessions from August 2019’s Project Inverted, but we’re changing things to be more at-the-box and at-home friendly. These pieces are programmed 3x a week for 10 minutes, each building on the next. A small amount of exposure keeps people wanting more, which means more enthusiasm and less burnout. We’re going to build your members’ confidence in getting upside down and improve their ability to move their bodies in specific situations — like an unexpected fall or getting tossed over the handlebars — so they’re better prepared for whatever life throws their way!
July 2020 — Fitness
In July, we’re revisiting April 2017 for some solid GPP goodness, with some updates, of course. Here are some of the hurts-so-good days you can look forward to: As for Heroes and Benchmarks, we’ve got Yeti and DT, Double Grace, and Helen, and for Max Effort WODs, we’re going for Power Snatch, Back Squat, and Power Clean. We believe the aim of a good GPP program is to keep your members fit for life. Our goal is decades of fitness, not quick wins. So, if we’re focusing on anything this month, it’s pushing those thresholds, reminding people that the training they want the most is often what they need the least.
