What is WOD at Home?
WOD at Home is a workout program, or weight training program, based around functional exercises that translate into real world activities. It is for EVERYONE!!! It will challenge the professional athlete as well as provide a great, scaled workout program or weight training program for anyone trying to get back into shape. No more wasting your time and money in a globo gym on the elliptical (when will you ever run like that in real life?) or on the shoulder fly machine (really?) and wondering why you are not in good shape. No more early morning boot camps or trying to fit fitness classes into your busy schedule. Turn your overall wellness around and become the athlete you were meant to be. Lose weight, gain lean muscle, and tone your body all from home. Run half-marathons because you feel like it without specifically training for it months before. Do that local mud race all your friends have been yammering on about without a second thought. Increase your performance in your club league, whatever it may be. Look good and feel good with minimal equipment form home without ever having to step foot in a gym.
There is a virtual class agenda that steps you though exactly what to do each day at home for the weight training program in a way that you can easily fit into your schedule. It is not a 90 day weight training program that ends and leaves you scrambling to find what’s next. Simply follow the constantly varied, WOD at Home workout of the day and get ready to work hard and see drastic results.
Why would I pay for WOD at Home when there are free work-outs everywhere on the internet?
WOD at Home was created by two garage gym athletes who followed various workout programs and weight training programs, who have now run one of the most successful gyms in Austin, TX. Remembering back to their garage gym days and the difficulties they ran into trying to follow any type of legitimate weight training program at home with the equipment they had, they created WOD at Home. In their garages, they would search endlessly for effective workouts that were good for the home gym, but with that randomness, there was no structure to the weight training program they followed…actually, no real program at all. WOD at Home is never ending and updated daily with fresh workouts. Although they may seem random, years of experience and collaboration goes into the order and types of workouts provided to maximize results. WOD at Home wants you to be good at everything without focusing too much on one or two specific things. By cycling exercises and constantly changing what each workout is trying to accomplish, you will have time to develop competency with exercises, make gains, and move on, so there is no plateau. Be ready to work hard and attack your weaknesses to earn increased body composition, lean muscle mass, higher energy through-out the day, and just being awesome at life.
Also included with a WOD at Home membership is access to the 12-module WOD Foundations Course which will coach you through most of the movements utilized in the program. Beginner and advanced athletes will see great benefits from creating a good foundation from which to build.

Am I in good enough shape to complete the work-outs?

It will challenge the professional athlete as well as provide a great, scaled workout program or weight training program for your grandmother.

What kind of exercises will I be doing?
Centered around cardiovascular endurance, gymnastics, power-lifting, and Olympic weightlifting, WOD at Home gives you a complete workout program / weight training program to follow with the assumption that you are working-out at home and have limited equipment at your disposal. Each day, WOD at Home provides mobility exercises to perform, a dynamic warm-up, a workout, a cool-down, exactly how to substitute the exercises depending on the equipment you have and your fitness level, and links to videos explaining and teaching the exercises needed for that day.
WOD at Home is a dynamic workout program that utilizes a kettlebell, a pullup bar, and a barbell, as well as incorporating your body weight to perform sit-ups, push-ups, air squats, burpees, etc.
I have never lifted weights, done weight training, know what a “clean” is, burpee, etc. How will I know if I am doing the WOD correctly?
Every workout has links to videos that demonstrate and explain the proper way to perform each move. With your WOD at Home membership you will also have access to the WOD Foundations Course, a 12 module, online agenda where you will strategically be coached by Kyle, through the foundational movements utilized in most WODs (WOD = Work-out of the Day). Our program is designed to fit into your busy schedule, in your own home, with instruction that is equivalent to that you would receive at a gym. Join Kyle as he teaches, in depth, the skills required to WOD at Home and get the most from your work-outs.
Each module includes videos and descriptions of:
- A concept discussion key to human movement.
- Step-by-step instruction and tips on how to perform movements covered in the module,
- Discussion of common faults and how to identify and correct them, and
- Mobility exercises that can be used to strengthen the positions required for the movements.
Learn to WOD correctly, injury free. Start lifting more, moving faster, and gaining the mobility every human should have. Expect more out of your body.
I am pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant. Can I still do the WOD at Home work-outs?

How do I get started?
Getting started is just a few easy steps! To start, visit the Getting Started page.
Do I have to follow a specific nutrition plan? Can you recommend a nutrition plan?
WOD at Home is a full believer in eating natural foods, controlling the amount of food eaten at each sitting, and balancing out your diet. WOD at Home staff have prescribed to the Paleo-Zone diet and have seen tremendous benefits, in and out of the gym. WOD at Home will NOT force you into a diet, make you count calories, or read off a list of what you have eaten. Diet is 60-80% of health and we are more than willing to share our expertise, but we understand that the Paleo-Zone diet is not for everyone.
“Diet” does not mean a short-term weight-loss plan.
Diet: “A particular selection of food[s], especially as designed or prescribed to improve a person’s physical condition or to prevent or treat a disease(Dictionary.com).”
Paleo-Zone is a mixture of two diets: the Paleo (aka Caveman) diet and the Zone diet. Paleo focuses on eating natural foods for which our bodies have evolved to use as fuel since the Paleolithic era. Zone focuses on balancing carbohydrates, proteins, and fats for an efficiently balanced diet. Natural foods in the right proportions gives your body the fuel it needs to help prevent disease, boost your daily energy level, prepare for a work-out, recover from your work-out, and just flat-out feel amazing. For more information about these diets, please email the WOD at Home staff.

I’m afraid I will get too bulky if I’m lifting weights.
Genetics play a big role in how a person naturally looks. Females do not have the same genetic make-up or hormones as men. They are not engineered to grow massive amounts of muscle. The buzzword “toning” is achieved by building lean muscle and burning fat. Adding weight training to your programming does this most effectively. Due to genetics, some men and women will have to work much harder to achieve the same results that some others get very easily. We don’t whine about this, but put in the hard work to make it happen. If you want to look like Arnold and don’t care about your heath, take steroids. If you want your muscles to be functional, to be healthy, and reap aesthetic benefits as well, WOD at Home.
