OUTWOD is the largest international initiative for bringing together LGBT+ athletes and their allies to raise funds for local charitable organizations and sweat together in a safe, inclusive group fitness environment.
Our mission is to promote active and fit lifestyles of our LGBT+ community and allies.
Our pride is in the diversity we represent within the sport of fitness and openly invite anyone to join our welcoming community.
What's the workout?
The WOD in OUTWOD stands for Workout of the Day. The workouts are constantly varying from High Intensity Interval Training, Boxing, Indoor Cycling, CrossFit-style workouts, Bootcamps and more. No matter what format, OUTWOD is open to all levels of athlete from novice to professional. OUTWOD guarantees an intense interval fitness experience that provides an immersive, high-intensity, and effective workout.
All classes take place in a high-energy and encouraging environment with motivating music and inspiring instructors.
Will I be okay if I'm a beginner or not already in shape?
Don’t worry! We welcome beginners and have a lot of them. We look after all of our first-timers in every class.
You can set your own intensity level and choose the heaviness of your weights (if weights are involved). The most important thing is to just have fun!
But - for real - will I die?
Nope! Promise! With our encouraging community and instructors, you'll be guided safely and within your limits. In fact, we guarantee you'll have so much fun (and maybe sweat so much) you'll keep coming back for more. Oh yeah, and you'll be making great friends along the way!
