Our Culture


CrossFit Malibu is not like your normal gym. Think about the last time you ran on a treadmill for an hour without even talking to the person running next to you. That is not what you will experience at CrossFit Malibu. We are involved in each others’ lives. Members work hard alongside one another, hold each other accountable, and celebrate accomplishments together. Joining CrossFit Malibu means getting instant support in striving towards your goals, in making positive change in your life. This is not your regular anonymous gym.


CrossFit Malibu prides itself on bringing fitness to the widest diversity of people possible. photo1When you enter our gym, you will see the following quote on the wall; “We don’t respect weight, we respect effort.” We have created an environment open to all, no matter your current level of fitness. We welcome and support everyone: young, old, fit, out of shape, those with a rich athletic background and those with no athletic background. CrossFit Malibu is unique in building relationships with people outside of your normal circle of friends. CrossFit Malibu is truly and unusual place. Stop by and experience it for yourself.


For many people this is the first time that they have worked out with people of various age and fitness levels. Something uncommon about CrossFit is that everyone is does the same workout, scaled to their ability and fitness level. For example, on a deadlift workout, within the same class we might have athletes lifting 25kg along side athletes lifting over 200kg, with each person celebrating the other’s accomplishments.
All of our workouts are run by an experienced and certified CrossFit coach who will help you choose the appropriate weight, assure that you are using correct mechanics, and provide feedback on your technique. Each training session contains a guided warm up, specific skill work and practice, a training piece, and some mobility.

We train for local competitions like 5/10ks, mud/obstacle course runs, triathlons, SUP races and other adventures like Pier-to-Pier on super low tides. We host beach workouts and trail runs.
