Success Stories

It's amazing what can happen when you start prioritizing YOU!

The hardest part of this journey is walking through the doors. The rest may not be easy, but it will definitely be worth it! Hear from some of Tidal CrossFit's members who have committed to self-improvement and have seen incredible results in their lives because of it.

The Tidal coaching team has transformed my fitness. Through their dedication, humour and knowledge, they have help me push my fitness boundaries. Whether 6am or 8pm, the team makes CrossFit more than a sport but a fun community.

I felt very welcomed by Tidal when I decided to start Crossfit. As an old athlete (I’ve been swimming for the past 27 years, 20 at competitive level), the Tidal community helps me keep going and in very good shape. Since I’ve started, I’ve improved my strength and don’t have more shoulder problems (I have very worn out shoulders from swimming). On top of that, I feel I am improving my conditioning and general strength, always pushing myself to overcome my limits in a safe way. In less than a year at Tidal, I have achieved a lot in Crossfit techniques and improved very much, thanks to all the help I get from the coaches at Tidal Danforth, which are very supportive.

I read just recently that CrossFit makes you stop caring what you see in the mirror and start becoming proud of what challenges you can overcome, and I whole heartily agree with that statement. Since starting at Tidal, I have overcome so many physical and mental battles, made a heap of friends, and had so much fun doing it, and the best part is knowing it will only keep getting better.

Before joining Tidal, exercise was not a part of my life. I hated it, felt no good at it, and had a skewed perspective about why I should do it. Since starting Crossfit, my attitude has changed. I love coming to class, I feel welcome and encouraged, and I feel inspired to get stronger and healthier.

I especially feel inspired by all the strong women I see in class, and feel that this and getting into Crossfit in general has really changed my views about body image and confidence. So glad to have found this!

I moved here from the U.S. knowing only my fiance, and my dog. Coming from a great gym in America, I really wanted to duplicate that sense of family & support that I received down south. I struggled at first with other gyms to fit in with other athletes but the coaches really made me feel welcome.

6 months later, 10 lb of “baby fat” gone, and a number of friends that I would happily spend time with outside of the gym, this has been one of the highlights of me moving north.

Since starting at Tidal Burlington, I’ve become stronger, healthier and more comfortable in my own skin. With the help of the awesome Tidal coaches, I’ve learned how to tackle the workouts confidently to my own skill level while working alongside other awesome athletes who always cheer you on. I love the variety of the workouts and the community is incredible!

I joined Tidal to get healthier and increase my overall energy, and in all aspects, I was able to succeed, (although now my target goals have moved and there is definitely more room for improvement). I was happy to lose a few inches from the good ol’ waist line, get stronger, and have more overall energy for my day-to-day activities. The downside was that initially I actually gained quite a bit of weight because my body needed nutrients to build muscle and I was interpreting that signal as: ‘MUST EAT MORE FOOD’, but once I corrected my eating habits and ate the correct nutrients, I saw results real fast. I highly recommend Tidal to newcomers, you’ll for sure fall in love with the workout and the awesome staff and community, but just remember to also eat the right stuff.

I was happy to have more overall energy for my day-to-day.

When I first joined Tidal it was about exercise. That has evolved to so much more. Having the opportunity to CrossFit alongside some remarkably strong women (and men!) has been inspiring. Finally, I don’t want to just be skinny or lose weight. I want to be strong. I’ve never in wildest dreams thought I could ever squat my body weight, but I can and many times over!

I love the variety of the WODs at Tidal – they are never boring and are just as much a mental challenge as a physical one. I’ve come to embrace my body and push it to the limit, and that has changed my life for the better.

Since joining Tidal just a few months ago I have noticed an amazing change in my strength and overall fitness. I have built my time at Tidal into my daily schedule and the results have been incredible… so much better than my previous ‘solo’ gym routine!

Dean Smalley

When I joined Crossfit I thought I was in pretty good shape. That was until I tried the based line workout and I was dealt with a dose of reality. 4 plus years later I am convinced Crossfit has changed my life. From meeting some incredible people, to being constantly pushed beyond my comfort zone I have experienced an incredible transformation both in mind and body.

I am convinced that CrossFit has changed my life.
