Colin's life has revolved around athletics from before the age of 5 years old. He grew up playing the usual ball sports, but eventually moved more toward mountain pursuits. His interest in climbing, skiing, and distance running drew him to the High Sierra where he spent nearly a decade exploring his physical potential on the rock, snow, and trails. In his late twenties, he found himself in rainy Seattle, WA drinking lots of coffee, studying the human body and it's movement, and getting married to his wife, Molly Broadwater. Here he found the CrossFit training program and dove in head first. After years of being addicted to the mountain/outdoor fitness scene, Colin never envisioned himself cranking out heavy deadlifts, perfecting snatch technique, or swinging heavy kettlebells! Once instructed on how to perform these movements properly, though, his friends and family could hardly get his hands unwrapped from a barbell. Ever since, he has dedicated his life to teaching CrossFit's functional movements to anyone who has the patience and persistence to learn them.
Now, at age 36, Colin is the head coach and owner at both CrossFit Bishop and Mammoth CrossFit. He is Level I certified and has attended CrossFit's Endurance and Olympic Lifting certifications along with the CrossFit Coaches Prep Course. And most importantly, Colin is the proud father of two beautiful children, Naya and Sean!!!

Paul’s passion for athletic movement started at a young age when he was introduced to rock climbing in the seventh grade. Immediately attracted to the combination of the mental and physical challenges and the endless possibility of chasing excellence, he went on to pursue outdoor adventure and physical fitness as a profession and for personal enjoyment.
After teaching for Outward Bound and living out of his disco-brown van, Amos, for many years all over the southwest, his path bounced into his wife, which eventually lead them to the beautiful Owens Valley. The richness of the surroundings and community, already continuously deepening, was recently magnified by his introduction to CrossFit Bishop.
In CrossFit, he has found the same potential for growth introduced to him so many years ago. CrossFit has provided a forum that incorporates his belief in restoring and developing connection with our innate ability through pursuit of mastery in movement, nutrition, and self-reflection; all through an up against yourself, work until you can’t any more focus.
Currently, Paul is working on his Marriage and Family Therapist license and has recently been certified as a Level One CrossFit Coach. He sees the combination of the two being a great way help people uncover their own natural ability, strength and personal potential, physically and mentally. He lives in Bishop with his wife, Meghan, and their two children, Sloan and Hudson.

Krista comes from a very physically active family with athletic talent. She was born and raised in the beautiful Eastern Sierra. She started skiing at the age of three and moved on to snowboarding. However, her passion was in dance, in both Ballet and Jazz, for twelve years, until moving on to college. Krista earned her college degree in Community and School Health Education from Cal State, Long Beach and moved back to Bishop to start a family and career. However, college, married life and having children got the best of her and she found herself struggling with exercise, good nutrition and being fit. Until one day, she came to a point in her life where she wanted a change for the better and found CrossFit Bishop, through the excitement and encouragement of her sister, Brenda. Once Krista started CrossFit Bishop she never looked back. Through the talented coaching from Colin and Pablo, she found and developed some serious determination, strength, technique and passion for CrossFit. After about a year and a half she made the decision to become a coach so that she can teach and encourage others to make a positive change in their lives by finding their own strength and physical potential.
Krista continues to find balance in her life, while recently being a Level I certified coach, a very active member of CFB, being a social worker supervisor, a mother of two awesome children and a wife. She hopes to inspire others and continue to see the positive changes that CrossFit Bishop brings to this community!
Meghan grew up in Rhode Island ready and willing to participate in any sport in which she was introduced. As she got older her interests became more focused and it was the sport of crew that captured her attention. In high school she rowed in a single competing throughout New England and in college she spent her time competing in 4s and 8s. The sheer physical exertion of rowing all out for 3000 meters or 3 miles was thrilling and deeply satisfying. After college there was always a sport that she pursued as many years of teaching outdoor education turned into teaching history in middle school. Climbing, skiing and road biking provided the physicality and movement that she desired.
It wasn’t until being introduced to Crossfit a couple years ago that Meghan’s understanding of fitness was altered. From the first workout she was connected to a greater sense of her body, movement and of untapped potential. And so the journey has continued with the Level 1 Certification and the Kids program.
Meghan coaches adults and also runs the Kids program at CFB. It is an adventure. Working with kids from 4-18 continues to be exciting and supremely rewarding; watching their strength and overall fitness develop and translate into confidence outside the gym.
Jared was born and raised in the Bishop community and grew up playing numerous sports within the community including soccer, baseball, and football. Jared has been an active member of the Bishop Community and has volunteered and coached soccer, roller hockey, and youth football as his children have grown over the years. Jared was introduced to CrossFit by a friend in March of 2010. The stresses of life pushed Jared for change and CrossFit became his outlet. Numerous months of coaching and support from Coach Colin and Coach Molly drove Jared to a 30 pound weight loss and a significant gain in strength.
Jared then decided to take his love for CrossFit and become a Level 1 CF Coach in November of 2011. His current employment as a Peace Officer challenges him physically and mentally every day. Crossfit has given Jared the edge he feels he needs to excel within his current career path and he desires to share that edge with anyone willing to learn.
