After completing the fundamentals class, participants walk into their workout session greeting by a workout of the day scrawled on a chalkboard in the low-key CrossFit Malicious facility. Following a brief warm-up, trainers shout, “three, two, one, go!” and an intense blend of weightlifting, plyometrics, and kettlebell swinging begins. Classes meet Monday–Friday at 6 a.m., 7 a.m., 3:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m., with a Saturday-morning session held at 10 a.m.
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.
