OUR coaches

Jen Coach at Tidal Fitness

Jen

COACH & GENERAL MANAGER

Jen's fitness journey was a typical one. Leaving a career in the corporate world, she focused on raising her three girls. Throughout the years it was difficult to find a fitness routine that "stuck"; videos, big-box gym classes, fancy fitness studios...nothing lasted. That all changed in 2011 after her first Crossfit class. With a solid background in competitive dance, Jen loved the attention to form and detail, all the while getting stronger. Soon she was swinging on the monkey bars with her kids in the playground. It was empowering, to say the least.

At Tidal, her primary enjoyment comes from helping people feel the same. Jen is a firm believer that progress can be made at any stage and is the founder of both the Kids and Legends (fitness for 55+) programs.
