been inspiring to watch! has
We asked Mike a few questions about his experience to learn more about his transformation and journey with Tidal so far…
What transformations have you experienced since joining Tidal?
“Since joining Tidal, I’ve been able to lose about 45lbs and gain strength and endurance in the process. As a new member in September 2017, I weighed in at 276lbs, the heaviest I had ever been. In my first 6 months at Tidal, I dropped about 20lbs with a consistent workout schedule and a few minor tweaks to my diet. It wasn’t until I addressed my nutrition that I really started to see the gains in strength and the visual changes in my muscle tone and fat loss.”
What is your favourite part about being a member at Tidal?
“It’s hard to pick just one favourite, but if pressed I would have to say the community is my favourite part. There is
a primalmagic in pushing through a WOD with a dozen or so of your fellow Crossfitters, each of whom is at a different point in their fitness journey, all working towards a common goal of getting stronger and healthier. Knowing you’re not alone,and have a tight-knit support group behind every step of the way, makes the experience far more enjoyable.“
What would you say to someone who is too scared/intimidated to walk through our doors to get started?
“I was intimidated when I first started but after spending some time with the coaches during foundations, being exposed to the class environment, and recognizing many members there were just like me, it certainly got easier. Crossfit changed my life and it will change yours if you have the courage to try!“
