The success of Monkey Bar Gym of Missoula comes from it's Boot Camp style workouts. Our group style workouts are led by a trainer who helps you modify the exercises based on your goals and fitness level. Our members tell us that before they found Monkey Bar Gym, they had a very hard time getting motivated to work out.

Build Usable Functional Strength
The core of MBG Skills Training is the practice of perfecting movement skills: Running, Jumping, Crawling, and Climbing. We apply this practice in our classes to help you build the usable strength that is functional and can be applied to your daily life. Moving you through our progressions is how you will get strong and allows us to meet everyone at their fitness level.
Gain High-Level Fitness
In order to gain the high-level fitness that everyone wants, you must first learn the basics of movement and progression. Once you gain the skill of a movement, we begin to add resistance or speed. To make this method of progression easy, we consecutively use two systems - "Stability > Strength > Power" and "Static > Stable > Unloaded" & "Dynamic > Unstable > Loaded.
Get Toned & Firm
If you train like a bodybuilder, then you will look like a bodybuilder (big & bulky). If you want to get toned and firm, then you have to train without weights. When you use your own body for resistance, you build usable, functional strength and put on lean & dense muscle. This is the lean muscle that shrinks your body, allows you to burn more calories and makes you strong.
Integrate & Strengthen Connections
Working out in an environment that has no machines, using your own body weight for resistance, taking your shoes off to ground yourself, and stepping away from the mirrors to release the ego forces your body to progress naturally. At MBG, we follow what nature does and will teach you to optimize the skills you'll need to not only survive but thrive.
Put the fun back into your workout! In boot camp, you’ll learn techniques designed to challenge your cardiovascular endurance, agility, and balance. You'll engage every muscle in your body while maintaining a sweat throughout the entire hour.
Natural Conditioning Advantage

Learn to move as you did as a kid and instinctively like animals do. What could be more fun than walking on your hands or swinging from ring to ring? By following our progressions you will learn to move properly off the ground or through the air. Whether your movement is vertical, horizontal, upside down, backwards or forward, we start you off with the basics and progress you to optimal performance.
Be Self Reliant
Being self-reliant is more than just doing things for yourself, it's a mindset. To achieve your goals, it's going to take hard work, determination, discipline, and the will to fight off complacency. We are not here to hold your hand or to do the work for you. As your coach, as your trainer, as your friend, we will teach you the skills that are needed to perform better, eat healthier, restore your body, and achieve things you never thought you could.
Get Lean & Defined
The end result of hard work is the thing we are all striving for. Getting lean and defined is a process and can feel like a never-ending battle. At MBG we help to alleviate this pain, by taking the traditional model of getting definition (lifting weights) and flipping it upside down. It should never feel easy, but it's definitely going to get better with every class you do.
Practice Core Strengthening Dynamic Movements
Most people think of core simply as abdominal muscles, but it is much more than that. The "core" of the body includes the hips, the waist, the entire spine, shoulders, and neck. All of these areas or sections of the body have the opportunity to collapse on every movement and it is imperative that we teach the body how to maintain alignment throughout all movements.
