Welcome to WOD Balm! Strong, effective, all natural products for sport recovery.

Hi and welcome to my WOD Balm Etsy page! My name is Jen W, RN. In addition to being the owner and CEO of WOD Balm, I am a CrossFit Level 1 Coach and co-Owner of Wildcat CrossFit, a box located in Tucson, AZ.
I founded my company, WOD Balm, nearly four years ago. I have a Masters Degree in Nursing from the University of Arizona, and I have studied Western Herbalism and Natural Healing for over 15 years.
WOD Balm, my line of all-natural herbal bodycare products, is designed to help athletes recover between hard workouts. More and more people who work out hard (triathletes, crossfitters, gymnasts, rowers, etc) are realizing the importance of muscle recovery in between workouts. Elite athletes also care about the ingredients they are putting inside their bodies. The reason I know this is because, I am a hardcore athlete. Just as after I do a tough workout, I don't want to eat a bunch of junk food, I don't want to slather a bunch of dyes and chemicals all over my body. And honestly, I wouldn't recommend it.
While I was training for my races and marathons ,I started experiencing my own sore muscles and began experimenting with making my own sore muscle salve … a practice that eventually grew into this business right here! I didn't have the idea to start my own bodycare company at that time though.
First, I became a personal trainer. Here was my thinking: I love going to the gym. The endorphin rush I get from running for an hour on the treadmill is the highlight of my day. I'm not really happy in my dead end job and I just wish I could hang out at a cool gym all day with a bunch of healthy people. I decided to become a Personal Trainer.
A few weeks into personal training school, I was introduce to a form of exercise that would change my life: of course, it was CrossFit. I worked out all the time with my friends and I really got to enjoy the benefits of being physically strong, as well as the mental benefits that come from regular, intense exercise like CrossFit.

My friend and I decided to open our gym, Wildcat CrossFit, in March of 2010, a year later I enrolled in nursing school at the University of Arizona. It was a few months into my career as a nursing student that I realized how much I loved my beautiful gym.

I was taking off, in my nursing school uniform, for a full day of classes and tests when I realized it, I had received my wish from 3 years earlier: To work in a cool gym with awesome fitness oriented people! From that point forward I knew that no matter what happened after nursing school, the gym would always be an important place for me.

Also during nursing school, while riding home from a decidedly long week of lectures, tests, and clinical hours, this thought popped into my head: “When I graduate from nursing school, I'm going to start my own all natural bodycare company and I'm going to call it WOD Balm.”

Seriously, the thought sprang full formed into my head I can still remember the moment.

And that is exactly what I did. I had been keeping up my practice of making my own sore muscle rub with 100% all natural ingredients. I had even brought some with me to the gym from time to time and shared it with some of the athletes there. They liked the way it felt, smelled, and made them feel. It has been a slightly bumpy road to go from passion to small business...twice..(!) but I have always enjoyed the learning process and I am just as passionate about making all natural salves...and being a CrossFit coach, as I ever was. In fact, my passion grows each day.

Thanks so much for checking out my bio and my shop! You rock! Please let me know if you have any questions about all natural herbal salves, exercise, or whatever you like!

Here are two products that I have specifically formulated for hard working athletes like me. One is for Sore Muscles (WOD Balm Muscle Rub), one is for Hand Tears (Tear Repair).
