Discover CrossFit Tidal Wave

CrossFit Tidal Wave is a 10,000 sq. ft. complex located in the historic downtown Strand district of Galveston. We are the largest CrossFit Facility in Galveston County.

With 10 available class times a day, multiple specialty classes, and a historic location CrossFit Tidal Wave offers you a professional and fun atmosphere to start your fitness journey.

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.

Taylor Wilson

Head Coach
(Galveston Weightlifting)

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!


Certifications:

  • CrossFit Level 1
  • USAW Club Coach
  • Personal Trainer


Achievements:

  • I’ve helped qualify half a dozen lifters for various national events and enjoyed multiple podium finishes in local meets. This as well as helping Coach many podium finishes in CrossFit.
