MBG Philosophy – MBG3


Our philosophy at Monkey Bar Gym, Woodbury, CT is based on three foundations that build on one another to produce the most holistic approach in the industry: Natural Training, Restoration Yoga, and Plant-Based Nutrition. By engaging in this “Wheel of Life,” you will learn the skills necessary to rebuild and realign your body, train like a warrior, and eat plant strong. Combined, these three aspects are called MBG3. We strive to change the world of fitness from being one of isolation to one that helps people and the planet.

This is why our workouts are partner-based. This is why we don’t use mirrors. And, this is why we train barefoot. MBG3 not only challenges our followers, but our trainers & instructors as well. We feel that you must first walk the walk, before you can talk the talk. We are driven to do what we do in hopes that we have a positive effect on everyone’s health and the plant’s health.




We train naturally with no machines, no shoes, no mirrors and no egos. Our training philosophy will help you increase your strength, speed, and stamina and we will teach you to move instinctively and be self-reliant. The goal of Natural Skill Training is to develop highly skilled and strong individuals.
