We (Ryan and Kareem) co-founded SocialWOD after meeting at our affiliate and finding out we're both entrepreneurs who've been building web apps since last millennium.
Prone to solving problems using technology, we decided to attack the problem of WOD tracking. Figuring that the easiest way to track WODs was to take advantage of ubiquitous mobile phone cameras, we developed a way to help affiliate owners track every athlete at their gym by simply by snapping and emailing a photo with their mobile phone camera.
We love supporting the gym owners and athletes like you who challenge yourselves daily, push to improve, and succeed. If we can help your gym grow or performance improve, we're stoked!
