Hey, you! Welcome to the Global WOD Project: an international adventure structured around working out (and observing the culture) in CrossFit boxes across the globe.
Join me as I document my international adventure with interactive maps, a blog, recipe page, photos and video across 11 wildly diverse countries on three different continents.
I’ll be observing how the CrossFit community, nutrition, the active fitness lifestyle and women’s athletics fit into the larger regional culture. In addition, I plan to profile female CrossFitters on the impact CrossFit has rendered on their eating habits, career+work, and overall lifestyle.
I’ll be exploring in-depth discussions around these central questions:
–What is it about CrossFit that transcends cultural/geographic boundaries?
–What is the underlying culture, communication style, or set of core beliefs that binds all CrossFitters?
–Where does that culture come from and how it is communicated (formally or informally)?
If you’ve ever had the distinct experience of visiting a CrossFit box you know how welcoming the community can be.
I’ve decided there’s no better way to experience these global hotspots than through the eyes of local CrossFitters (some of the most active, adventurous, giving and community-oriented people I’ve met).
Please explore the site—and don’t hesitate to drop me a line with any suggestions!
