Background information

Jennifer Conroyd, Founder, Fluid Running

Jennifer Conroyd is the founder of Fluid Running. Fluid Running is the only app-based, instructor-led water running system available in the world. Our inspired workouts are changing the lives of people who cannot, or do not want to do traditional forms of exercise due to the pain or discomfort that it causes their body. They are also getting people across the finish line of marathons and Ironman competitions. 

Jennifer is an avid athlete, Boston Marathoner, and Ironman. Jennifer discovered the benefits of deep-water running when she sustained an injury while training for the Chicago Marathon. Due to her injury, she could no longer train by running on the road, so she took to the pool and ran solely in deep water for the six weeks leading up to the marathon. She not only finished that marathon but qualified for the Boston Marathon.  This “aha moment” propelled her to create Fluid Running so she could help others reach their fitness goals, even if they have pain or an injury.  She is an A.C.E. certified personal trainer, a USA Track and Field certified coach and has her Exercise Is Medicine credential from the Academy of Sports Medicine.
