Meal of the Day


I love Crossfit Bishop. I am the kind of girl that isn't content with 30 minutes of "cardio" on a bike, or a step aerobics class. I like the full body burn, the opportunity to compete, and most of all the surprise that comes with doing something you didn't think you could do. Crossfit is the master at all of this. Crossfit breaks your body down so it can build back up into a better stronger one. It challenges your mind when you do three more reps than you thought possible. And it teaches your heart all you are capable of. Colin is a great instructor. I’ve never had a personal trainer but it is awesome having someone watching your form so closely, it makes you feel safe knowing that someone is looking out for you during challenging exercises so that you can push yourself a little further. Crossfit Bishop has got Colins intensity and attention to detail, Mollys inspiring fitness and kind spirit, a group of incredibly fun and fit people who are as psyched as you and an adorable baby too. Its certainly one of my favorite places to be in Bishop!!

Crossfit Works!  As a young buck, flush with time to get out in the mountains, I felt strongly that the best training for climbing and backcountry skiing was... climbing and backcountry skiing.  Now I'm by no means the busiest guy, nor do I have the most sedentary job, but I've felt the pinch of time in recent months.  I've spent many days over these busy months with Colin at Crossfit Bishop.   Colin energizes the classes, exudes knowledge and confidence, and successfully walks the fine line between motivation and all out pushing.  I just had my first opportunity in months to test my new Crossfitted bod'.  I can say that the total body training and the fresh, varied workouts make a huge difference!  The strength and endurance gains from Crossfit really shined on a recent one-day, monstrous exploratory ski tour in the High Sierra. I look forward to continuing to train and continuing to express strength gains.

I really appreciate all the dedication, knowledge, and energy you and Molly are so generous in giving. Your trained, focused attention and interest in supporting not only my fitness goals, but maximizing the quality of my performance, keeps me engaged and committed. It is inspiring to be around and has been a great catalyst fueling a new level in my health and fitness. It has always been a priority for me, but sometimes the conditions just have to be right to step up the quality and intensity. I suppose much like a CF workout...So, really, thanks. You guys are providing something very worthy to the Bishop community.

CrossFit is a different kind of fitness program that requires much more than gripping a bar and hammering out concentration curls. The complexity and variety of the movements, coupled with the intensity makes for a compelling system of improving one's physical and mental fitness. This is not accomplished without expert, careful, selfless coaching which Colin Broadwater provides.

Let your body mold itself into what it wants to be, rather than trying to make it something its not.

So can we initiate a discussion here about exactly what kind of CrossFit training leads to improved body composition?

And also, maybe even more importantly, how to eat to support body composition changes.

We all care to a certain extent what our bodies look like. For some of us it is easier to keep a lean, muscular frame. For those that tend to keep a little extra around the middle or other undesirable places, what can we do to change this???

Seems like understanding the difference between body composition, health, and performance issues could be tackled in the same discussion as well...

Anybody care to chat???

There's a pretty lively posting of food related topics and comments on the Mammoth CF facebook page...

Sounds interesting to me!

I would like to see a place, possibly use the CFB Forum, to discuss nutrition and share recipes and ideas on a more permanent basis. I think it would be good, and fun, to have a place we can share recipes that worked (and those that didn't), along with thoughts and ideas of how to continue to eat and fuel our bodies to achieve our maximum potentials.

I would love to know the answer to the question of eating and training to change body composition. This is an area that I have struggled with and had some success with, but not to the point where I am satisfied and it seems that all progress has stopped. I am happy to share my experience and would love to know how others have managed this area. I also would love to be guided by our knowledgable leaders with tips, hints and reminders. I often find inspiration in the posts on this and the Facebook page that help me throughout the day and at times when I need a little kick in the ass.

Alrighty Pam, Libbee, and S.W. I am going to work on getting a post up for each of the topics I brought up. I have too much happening already, but it's important. I've been a fan of the nutrition "challenges" that we've done in the past, but I would like to see something more permanent happening too. Would be awesome if we all had a place to share our experiences as far as success and failure, as well as recipe ideas. Stay tuned...

Colin- I don't think we could have asked for better leadership for our quest for fitness than you and the rest of the amazing team at CrossFit Bishop!

One of the effects of great leadership is a great team...and that is what we are. Nutrition is certainly an area that I struggle with and I think that there are lots of us who can help to guide and help each other through- like Libbee said, even the starting of a nutrition forum would be a great start. With all that you have on your plate (pun totally intended) I can start a forum where stories of success and failures, recipes, and inspiration can be shared. I think that it would be great for our coaches to check-in there and provide guidance, words of wisdom and general encouragement. Any additional discussions/meetings/challenges will just add to the process.

Food forum is a great idea.
