These guys have it figured out! The progressions, periodization, and instructional videos have made gymnastics work fun and i'm definitely seeing results!

I got my first bar muscle-up and the other programs are the perfect supplement to my jiu jitsu and Olympic lifting.

When it comes to CrossFit and Gymnastics, there's a lot of template programming options floating around out there, but nothing as comprehensive and efficient as this one! Highly recommend it!


Proper technique keeps injuries down while helping me get stronger and learn new skills. Power Monkey Fitness is the best there is!

I had rotator cuff surgery last Feburary and was looking for a program to help me get my ring muscle ups back. I just completed 12 weeks of power monkey kipping rmus and was able to get multiple rmus within a wod. The app is great and easy to follow. The step by step program is geared for success, increased my shoulder mobility, strength and overall shoulder health.
