People First. Fitness Follows.
Most people who make resolutions to get fit or live a healthier lifestyle don’t follow through on their commitment. They can pay the gym membership, wear the right clothes, follow the right instagramers or listen to ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ on repeat, but without this ONE vital ingredient they will fail. To truly follow through on achieving our goals we need coaches and friends to guide, motivate and support us. Without it, people don’t stay accountable to the journey and they give up. We’ve all seen it a thousand times. At CrossFit Tidal Wave you will find an inspiring community of people who we are invested in your fitness journey from day one. You’ll find a family.

After taking an interest in Olympic Weightlifting in 2009 and self-coaching for about a year I stumbled upon CrossFit when looking at fitness programs that incorporated Olympic lifts. In 2010 I stepped into a CrossFit box for the first time and I fell in love instantly.
After driving nearly 45 minutes to the nearest CrossFit box for a couple years, I partnered with Shaun to finally bring CrossFit to Galveston. We’ve now brought another first to Galveston, the first official USA Weightlifting club, Galveston Weightlifting!
