Community News and Updates


Make sure to check back often for new training tips from our expert coaches, information on upcoming Tidal events, and much more!


As we tackle the next five weeks as a community, we want to find out what pushed you to sign up for the Open this year. Every person has a different reason and motivation, and it's a really neat opportunity for the Tidal community to see what that is (if you're comfortable sharing, of course)! It might even provide some motivation for next year for individuals not quite ready to join in the fun this season.

The Fearless Warrior’s Mindset

You can’t teach a mindset in the way you can teach someone how to fix their squat or to pull a clean properly. But it can be built. And it is not necessarily a fact that you either have it or you don’t. Mindset is a skill just like any other. Some people seem to be born with a certain mindset the same as some seem to be born with a gift for gymnastics. But both can be taught. And in the same vein both are perishable. For someone wanting to up their mental game first you need to really look at yourself and be honest about your performance. Did you break up those wall balls because you truly failed, or was it more that you were tired and uncomfortable?

Open Programming – What to Expect

One of the draws of the Open, at least for me anyways, is the fact that it is a test of the “unknown and the unknowable”. Not even your Coaches know the workout before it is announced on Thursday night. While the mysterious nature of the Open workouts is an exhilarating highlight of the competition, it throws a monkey wrench in our weekly workout planning. Fortunately, over the years we have developed a specific template to guide our programming during the five weeks of the Open.

Workout Posting: Every Day vs. Weekly?

Starting this past week we have switched to a new logging and programming platform, SugarWod. We have received a lot of great feedback about the app itself, and we feel very positive about its functionality and look being a big step up from TrainHeroic. However, the most common questions and concerns we've received have been around the change from weekly posting to nightly, so I wanted to explain the logic behind this decision.

CrossFit Gymnastics Course

This interactive two-day (Nov 4 & 5) course covers basic, intermediate and advanced gymnastics movements in a lecture setting, with practical application following as participants and coaches perform all presented movements. Skills are repeated until the student has an understanding of how to learn, spot and teach all movements safely to athletes of any level. Gymnastics programming is also discussed...

Get Ready for the Open (Workshop)

Join Tidal Owner, Jeff Larsh, for a 90-minute workshop designed to get you feeling confident going into each and every workout of this year's CrossFit Games Open. Regardless of whether you're in it to just have some fun, crush some personal goals, or make it to Regionals, there is something for everyone to take away. 

Christmas & New Years Holiday Hours

Can you believe 2017 is almost over? We can't! What an unbelievable year its been for #TidalNation. We can't wait to see what 2018 has in store for everyone.  With the Christmas and New Years holidays approaching, we wanted to make sure you have the updated schedules for your Tidal location. As with all holiday classes, space fills up quickly, so please make sure to book your spot in Zen Planner (and to cancel if you can’t make it.)

Tidal Programming: Part 2

A typical day of Tidal programming consists of multiple parts: a general warm up, mobility, prep, and a combination of strength, skill, and conditioning. These components work together to ensure you get the most out of your class by providing coaches the opportunity to assess your movement mechanics, help you work on your consistency, and motivate you through your workout.

Notice of Closure: Tidal North

It is with a heavy heart that we write to inform you of the upcoming closure of Tidal CrossFit North. We care deeply for the vibrant community at Tidal North, and it is not possible to express in just a few words our gratitude for your continued support these last two years. We are incredibly thankful for the contributions of both our staff and dedicated members since we opened our doors. Unfortunately, as business owners, we have been forced to make the difficult decision to end business operations effective Monday, November 20th.
