$59 for Three Months of Beginner On-Ramp CrossFit Classes ($450 Value)
Participants walk in for their workout session greeted by the workout of the day—a daily changing regimen of exercises scrawled on the chalkboard in CrossFit Malicious’s low-key facility. Following a brief warm-up, trainers shout, “three, two, one, go!” and an intense blend of weightlifting, plyometrics, and kettlebell swinging begins. View class times here.
The trainers at CrossFit Malicious focus each workout of the day on functional movement rather than unnecessary muscle bulking and flexibility training done merely to save money when shipping oneself via ground carrier. Each class begins with an emphasis on proper technique to prevent injury and optimize each exercise. Instructors modify workouts to varying fitness levels, but the intensity never subsides, with students supporting one another in an empowering group environment. The workout gear used during each class is completely devoid of complex mechanical contraptions and reflects the minimalist surroundings, with stacks of weight plates for lifting or pushing, pull-up bars, and plyometric boxes.
