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.

Well, an extremely full 5:30 pm class has forced my to reconsider canceling the Monday 6 am!  Power to the people, Monday 6 am is back!!!  In other news, we've got another beast of a workout for Tuesday!  Get ready to start scaling back again.  Feel free to cut this thing down to 50% or even lower, but remember there are athletes out there doing these workouts back to back in the same day... 


2011 CrossFit Games Regional Workout 3

21-15-9 reps for time of:
315/205 pound Deadlift
30"/24 Box jump

Will be quite a feat for anyone to pull this off as Rx'd!!!  Just the round of 21 could take all day for a lot of us...  Scale as necessary!!!


So we had the worst turnout in months and months for this workout!  Cherry picking workouts is not taken lightly by the coaches at CrossFit Bishop.  Many, many benefits come from running and running backwards, such as stamina, cardio-respiratory endurance, coordination along with many, many others!  I, myself, despise hard running workouts as it's one of my biggest weaknesses, but know that it's one of the greatest ways to increase my overall fitness so I just grit my teeth and get it done anyway.  So whine and complain all you want about workouts like this, but make sure you're whining and complaining at the start line not your couch!!!  This workout will continue to show up as our WOD until we get a good turnout...
