The Fluid Running story began with a twist of fate. Founder Jennifer Conroyd sustained an injury that threatened to derail her participation six weeks before a scheduled marathon. Undeterred, she turned to deep water running as her sole training method during her recovery. This experience was Jennifer’s “aha moment.” She realized the incredible potential of deep water running and felt compelled to share its benefits with others, sparking the birth of Fluid Running.

Starting with just a single group class in the Chicagoland area and Jennifer as the only instructor, Fluid Running quickly gained traction. As demand grew, Jennifer expanded the program by developing a certified instructor training course so Fluid Running could expand and be offered at multiple pools.  However, the interest in Fluid Running extended far beyond local demand. To make her program accessible globally, Jennifer partnered with a business innovator who helped develop the Fluid Running app. This app allows users worldwide to download audio workouts and engage in deep water running anytime, anywhere, bringing Jennifer’s vision full circle from a personal solution to a global fitness revolution.

As the Fluid Running app gained popularity, the team identified an opportunity to further enhance its offerings. Recognizing that not everyone has access to deep-water pools, especially while traveling, Fluid Running expanded its workout library to include shallow-water workouts. This commitment to inclusivity and adaptability ensures that anyone, anywhere, can access top-tier low-impact fitness options, upholding Jennifer’s vision of transformative fitness solutions for all.
