About Pocket WOD
Pocket WOD was developed by Tyler Thomas, and is based on his experiences with CrossFit training in Van Nuys, California. Thomas was an actor who became involved in functional fitness training to meet the challenges of a co-worker who claimed at the time that Thomas “knew nothing” about real fitness. Thomas went to a CrossFit class to prove the co-worker wrong, only to find that the co-worker was absolutely right. He describes his experiences with CrossFit as both humbling and challenging.
Thomas programmed the first version of Pocket WOD to create a simple app that would bring the experience of functional fitness training to a larger audience. He felt that many fitness apps were overloaded with complex features that weren’t useful to broader groups. He hoped that this app would meet the need of users to track their exercises, get inspired, and build a more fit body. Thomas is committed to innovation and development to make sure that Pocket WOD remains one of the fitness best apps on the market.
