We are very excited to bring the Level Method to Tidal. The Level Method is a system of testing and tracking that will integrate with our current programming and help you get the most out of your workouts. The Level Method is a collection of 15 tests that assess overall fitness and provides a tangible metric to track the development of our general physical preparedness (GPP). Each test corresponds to a mode in which our bodies use energy to produce power - an energy system. By asking us to complete a variety of familiar workouts and exercises, the Level Method allows us to have a better understanding of our strengths and weaknesses letting us to focus on our shortcomings and rapidly improve our GPP.
We invite you to join the Tidal community on June 24 for a very important workout, 'Myles Ahead'. Just last month, the Tidal CrossFit Danforth community lost a special member of its Youth Program, Myles Kulperger at the age of 13. This event is a fundraiser in support of Myles’ family's not-for-profit organization, which will help families understand and navigate the gaps currently existing in the youth mental health system.
...So I would like to ask you, Tidal Nation, to help these families by donating to https://ca.gofundme.com/funds-for-humboldt-broncos. We will be hosting a workout on Saturday, April 14 written by Burlington Business Leader, Joe Tolles, a guy who has ridden more buses then I have, to show how thankful we are that we have each other and to honour the individuals that lost their lives that night.
Want to move like a gymnast? Join Strongnastics Coach Jenn Lymburner for a 90-minute gymnastics workshop focused on handstands! Perfect for athletes of ALL levels, this workshop will introduce important mobility, strength and technique drills to get you comfortable upside down. Although focused on the foundations of balancing (beginner/intermediate), the session will touch on drills for handstand push ups and walking as well.
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.
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.
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.)
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.
