Without gyms, people would resort to outdated fitness techniques, such as swimming and pushing Model Ts up slight inclines. Celebrate contemporary fitness with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-month membership ($120 value) to Monkey Bar Gymnasium’s new location on South Michigan Avenue.

Monkey Bar Gymnasium aims to provide guidance and simple workout tools that open people’s minds to the ways their bodies work, making improved health and fitness an attainable goal. It accomplishes this with a trifecta of techniques: Eischens yoga, a type of yoga designed specifically to improve people’s posture while teaching usual yoga skills including conscious breathing and levitation; nutritional advice, for which Monkey Bar Gymnasium has a plant-based approach; and whole-body skill training, which uses minimal-equipment exercises (such as gymnastics, running, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and resistance training) to strengthen muscles, improve endurance, and make people masters of their physiques. The dedicated staff strives to help each person who walks through Monkey Bar Gymnasium’s doors meet their fitness goals, be it by attending myriad classes, doing workouts at home, or learning to bench press goats.

  • This is not your typical gym. No machines, no tvs. They are all about functional fitness...getting in shape and working up as [sic] sweat with things like large ropes, ladders, kettle bells, and medicine balls. – Stephanie H., Yelp
  • I'm losing weight, getting stronger, jumping higher, and running faster than I ever have in my life. The trainers/instructors are super friendly, nice, and helpful. – Lisa M., Yelp
