Testimonials

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.

Five rounds for time and load of:
Run 400 meters
3 Hang power cleans 

On the hang power cleans, once you pick up the bar you may not lower it past your knees until all three reps are complete.  If you drop the bar, the set is considered over and you must move on... 

On another very important note!!!  We'd like to announce the winners of The Best Shape of Your Life Challenge!!!  Drum roll please.......  Both of these CrossFitters have displayed unbending determination to change their health and fitness for the better and its been a real pleasure watching the transformation.  Improvements in body composition and performance are obvious for all to see and I'm pleased to announce that Jake and Cindy Kiddo are the winners of the nine week challenge!!!  Each of these fine athletes will not only get their $50 entry fee back, but will receive a CrossFit Bishop T-Shirt and an unlimited months membership to the gym!!!  More importantly though, they have inspired their friends, family, other members of our CrossFit community, and of course themselves to take life to that next level of health, happiness, and vitality!!!  Thanks so much to Jake, Cindy and everyone else who took part in our Challenge!  If you didn't have the chance to take part this time around, then don't miss out when we do it again this holiday season...
