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.

Hey Everyone,

Coach Pablo here, recently returned from 2 weeks of being sanded, soaked, and sunned by the beautiful Colorado River...A magical journey that I recommend for everyone and anyone. By far, one of the most transformative and important trips I have ever had the pleasure to be on. A deeply stirring place. Hard to put it in words, not that it needs to be.

After emerging from the Canyon with some clarity and returning to Bishop, Colin and I met and came to a mutual decision to stop coaching for the time being funneling my energy into my private practice. This choice is not without a sense of loss. My time with all of you, developing myself as an athlete and coach, building, what I believe to be the glue that makes it all work, meaningful relationships are things that I hold dear. When I told Sloan the other day about my decision, she said, "Really? But all the people are so much fun!" I couldn't agree more. I feel proud to have played a part in the development of CrossFit Bishop and to have had the opportunity to witness everyone's hard won efforts by relentlessly showing up each day to chip away at whatever drives you to walk through the door. 

Drenched by early morning light and the silent movement of the Colorado River, sitting in folding chairs in a cirlce of people from various time periods of my life, toes in the sand and sipping coffee, I smiled a contented smile and said, "Happiness is born out of who and what you surround yourself. We are not separate. We are deeply affected by our context." I am grateful to you all for being my context over the past 5 years. Thank you Colin and Molly. Thank you all. 

See you in the gym. 

Love, Paul
