Building and Editing Workouts




Once you have set up your Workout template and added basic details (see Creating a New Workout), you will need to add the specifics of your workout. This article will walk you through adding Sections and Components to your Workout. 


In this article, we will cover:


Adding Sections

Sections are used to format your workout and break up your workout. Think of these as dividers to help with pacing or section breaks for your workout. There are five global sections that you can choose from or you can create your own. 

The five global sections are:

  1. Gymnastics 
  2. Weightlifting
  3. Metcons
  4. Warm-Up



Below you will find an example of a blank workout with section dividers. mceclip3.png

For more information on managing your sections, check out our Managing Workout Sections article.

Note: Sections are not for detailing the movements of your workout, just to help organize the workout. See the below info about Components for detailing the movements.


Adding Components 

After you have added sections, you can add Global Components (universal across Wodify's platform) or existing Custom Components (specific to your business) to your workout. If you wish to add new custom components, you can follow the steps in the next section (Customizing Your Workout). 

  1. Click into the 'Add Component' drop down or use the 'c' hotkey to open the 'Add Component' dropdown.
  2. Next, search for the global workout component you wish to add and click on it from the dropdown.
    • You can also find any custom components here that you've already created and saved
  3. Once the component is loaded you can edit the details of the component.
    • For weightlifting components, this includes the rep scheme, type of weight (lbs/kg), reps, and sets. You can also click '+Enable Max Reps' which will instruct clients to do as many reps as they can per each set. 

    • For gymnastics components, this includes the rep scheme and number of sets. Please note that reps will always be set to max. 
    • Global metcon and warmup components will not be able to be edited 


Customizing Your Workout

Below you will find two popular ways to customize your Workout

  1. Creating Custom Components
  2. Embedding Videos and Images in a Workout


Workout Builder Hotkeys

Rather than clicking on each Section, Component, or Custom Component and scrolling through the list - each respective hotkey will automatically jump to that list where you can type-to-search your desired movement/type. For images and videos, the hotkey will automatically input the image or video editor.



For example:

To add a Back Squat component, you would type:

  • Use C-key > Type Back Squat > Use Enter key

Tip: Use can use Tab and Shift-Tab (backward) to process through the building fields, and Shift + Enter to save and close the component editor.
