Christos Christoudias

Founder, CEO

Christos founded FlashWOD in 2013 as the culmination of two things he loves; Crossfit and Product Development. Since starting Crossfit in April of 2012, Christos felt that the needs of the community were being underserved by the current software solutions available. FlashWOD was conceived as a solution that would be simpler and more effective than other offerings. Christos currently resides in San Francisco, CA and Crossfits at Arena Ready Crossfit. He enjoys an active life including playing recreational sports, hiking, camping, and excessive snowboarding in the winter. Christos graduated from Tufts University in 1999 where he majored in Computer Engineering and also earned all-conference and all-New England honors as a center playing NCAA football. Christos' current focus is on the constant improvement of FlashWOD as a product.

Director of Company Culture

Bella is Christos' dog. She is a German Shorthaired Pointer mix but she looks like a black lab. Her job is to make Christos smile. She excels at her job. She excels at running WODs and box jumps often crushing her human counterparts. Unfortunately, he performance on barbell movements is poor due to the lack of opposable thumbs.
