    Emmm... dunno. Too easy to use?

    Really engaged developer too.

I'm incredibly excited to launch WOD: A beautiful HIIT workout app for people on the go. This app has been in the making off and on for about 6 months. It finally reached a point that I'm really proud of and I'd like to share it with you all. I wrote a piece on the story of WOD and what I learned while building it.

@eonpilot high intensity interval training!

@milesalex Congrats on the launch! I'd concur with @eon though, you might think of a less jargony title. "WOD: A beautiful HIIT workout app" is not approachable to me.

@lay2000lbs thanks for the feedback! Over the past 6 months the title is the main thing that got me traction. People are searching for WOD.

@milesalex I think the name is smart. It's why I clicked.

@lay2000lbs This is a crossfit term, meaning workout of the day -- nearly everyone who does crossfit is familiar with it. Looks like this app is targeting them.

@yozzozo I was just going to ask what WOD is! Thank you!
Leighton Cusack@lay2000lbs · Co-founder, Kindrid
@milesalex Makes sense, I didn't know what WOD was either. But it seems like the terminology helps self-select to people who would actually want to use the service.

@mscccc @milesalex title will resonate with people in your target audience for sure. the app is for people familiar with crossfit workouts! it's not really HIIT if there are no rest periods but I get why you might want to target that term also :)

@mikefiorillo there are workouts with rest periods! You have to upgrade to get them ;)
Mike Fiorillo@mikefiorillo · Growth Product @InVision
@milesalex Great stuff. Curious, how did you go about curating these workouts to include? What was your main selection criteria?

@mikefiorillo I created a list of WODs that I did in the past and liked and then ran it by a few personal trainer friends of mine. I plan to add workout regularly. In the future, I am going to expand upon this model to add more workout diversity (muscle groups, plans, trainer styles etc)
