A Letter From Our Founder


I'm Christos Christoudias, the president and Founder of FlashWOD. FlashWOD is the result of combining the two things in my life that I am most passionate about; engineering great products and Crossfit. I first discovered Crossfit in 2011 and while I wouldn't describe it as "Love at first sight", I was most certainly hooked.

One of the most powerful forces in Crossfit is the community, yet the only time that I felt community across affiliates was once per year during the Crossfit Games Open. I felt that the community need a platform that was "open", that allowed the members of our passionate community to share and communicate without having to pay a subscription. In 2013, I founded FlashWOD with the aspirations of offering a solution for this need.

Since getting started, the feedback and support has been overwhelming, just as it is in the box. If you'd like to reach out and offer any feedback, questions or concerns, you can feel free to connect with me below, at my favorite affiliate Arena Ready Crossfit or you can also check out our FAQs page.
