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.

Paleo Potluck and Talk:

Are you interested in understanding the unique needs of fueling yourself as an athlete? What are the risks that you face training as hard as you do and how do you minimize these risks? How are nutrition and immune function, cellular adaptation, body composition requirements, and fluid intake related and why are they important topics to address for continued performance gains and maintenance as an athlete? Come this Friday at 5:30 with a Paleo dish to ask questions and discuss these important foundational ideas.

On the minute every minute for 10-15 minutes:
3 Power cleans at a manageable but challenging weight
Then,
Press 3x5

If you did not do "Nancy" on Monday, follow this with 200 meter running or rowing intervals.  

We will be doing a fair amount of cleans and snatches OTMEM, so you'll have plenty of time to increase weight.  Consider starting around 80-85%of where you left your power cleans on the linear progression...

This week we will repeat a few of the workouts that we did the week preceding before the six week strength block.  I believe that we did Nancy on Monday, Tabata This on Wednesday, and Grace on Friday.  So tomorrow:

"Nancy"
5 Rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
15 Overhead squats, 95/65 pounds 

Will you be faster due to your increased strength, or will you have slowed a bit, due to less focus on conditioning???
