About this project
monkii bars 2 is an incredibly strong yet ultra-light bodyweight trainer that you can use anywhere—designed for people who want awesome workouts without being stuck in a regular gym. When paired with our app it's more than just a fitness device—it's your own private gym, personal trainer, and adventure guide built into one.
Whether you're a traveler or home-body, adventurer or weekend warrior, runner or mudder, newbie or musclehead—you now have the freedom to work out anywhere. Do all of the exercises you already know, plus hundreds of new ones you don't, and have an epic workout every time. Say goodbye to the boring routine.
For the true minimalist or if you're looking for any excuse to get outside, the Ultralight Kit will transport your monkii bars 2 and a pair of suspension straps without weighing you down.
monkii bars 2 are super portable and easy to setup. The suspension strap connection is stored inside the bars—when you are ready to work out, remove the plugs, slide out the connectors, and connect each monkii bar to a suspension strap. It's that easy.
The Adventure Kit transforms your monkii bars 2 into a sleek, self-contained home and travel workout system. By seamlessly converting from an ultra-portable carrying case into a universal door attachment, it becomes the ultimate companion to monkii bars 2.
The Tactical Kit is for those who take their fitness very seriously. It includes everything the Adventure Kit does, but it comes in the most durable materials, and in only one color: blackout. You'll also get a hard copy of the insanely challenging Tactical Training 2 Manual featuring workouts, challenges, and missions that will either leave you stronger or speaking in tongues.
The MONKII App literally turns the world into your gym. Access incredible workout locations geocached by the worldwide monkii bars community. We've also included user-submitted workouts so you'll know where to go and what to do, wherever you are.
If you’re more comfortable getting in a workout at home or your hotel, just insert your phone into the Adventure Kit and open up the MONKII App. You can easily access and follow along to complete workout videos.
Once your monkii bars 2 arrives, you can dive into our step-by-step training programs. Follow them closely or use them as building blocks to create your own workout programs.
If you're already the equivalent of a monkii ninja, you can skip the monkii Habit Program, and get straight to business with our library of a-la-carte workouts and/or our 4-8 week strength & endurance programs. We’ll also have additional activity-based training, so you can crush your next obstacle race, triathlon, or backpacking trip.
You'll master monkii bars 2 quickly thanks to our easy to follow instructional videos which teach you proper form for all of the monkii movements. You can access them on our website or the MONKII App.
monkii bars 2 work for all fitness levels whether you're just off the couch or Arnold Schwarzenegger—simply adjust the angle at which you work out, to make the exercise easier or more difficult.
You'll get hundreds of free workouts with easy to follow instructions, a 250+ exercise library walking you through proper form, and fun, full-length workout videos to keep you motivated.
monkiis are the worldwide tribe of people who have discovered that working out when and where they want has finally made exercise fun. When fitness is fun, it becomes easier to do consistently. When you do it consistently, you become happier, healthier, and more fit. What the heck are you waiting for?

Introducing the lightest, strongest, and rarest fitness device on planet earth: monkii bars 2 Titanium Edition. Featuring an insanely high tensile strength to density ratio, superb corrosion fatigue resistance, and ability to withstand high temperatures. This pair of monkii bars will last you many lifetimes. Only 10 will ever exist, made exclusively for Kickstarter.
monkii school is a half-day event at a Bay Area gym that covers all of the monkii bars 2 training essentials. First off, your monkii bars 2 will be hand-delivered to you by Chief Training Officer and Co-Founder Dan Vinson. Then, Dan will walk you through setup and usage, demonstrate his favorite exercises, teach perfect form, and share some of his tips and tricks. The goal for this course is to build a solid foundation and understanding of how to use monkii bars 2. You'll leave feeling confident to train at home or on your next trip around the world.
Join the monkii team for an epic 7-day adventure to Norway's Lofoten Islands and become Certified WILD. Our monkii ambassador and Lofoten local, Erl, as well as monkii co-founder Dan will lead you on an incredible adventure that will push your limits and reveal your inner wildness. We'll do this by hiking to the tops of mountains, learning to surf in the Arctic Ocean, biking across remote islands, camping along the beach, SUP'ing to hidden coves, and of course working out with monkii bars 2 in the most incredible locations imaginable. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to visit one of the wildest places on earth and experience travel, monkii style.

Risks and challenges
We are fortunate to have successfully funded and 100% fulfilled our first Kickstarter campaign for the original monkii bars in 2014. That experience taught us 3 critical things that will mitigate risks and challenges for this campaign:
1. Our first successful Kickstarter campaign taught us a tremendous amount about manufacturing, assembly, packaging, and shipping. For this campaign, we are working with many of the same US-based manufacturers that we've worked with over the past 2 years. We promise to only work with the best US-based manufacturers for this campaign.
2. Our first successful campaign taught us how important it is to hit the ground running post campaign. We promise to hit the ground running if we are successfully funded, placing orders with manufacturers immediately, beginning to code our mobile app, and developing amazing training programs and content.
3. Our first successful campaign taught us how incredibly supportive the Kickstarter community is—especially when you operate with transparency and communicate frequently. We promise to continue to operate with transparency and communicate often during this campaign through fulfillment.
Even with this invaluable experience, lessons learned, and our successful track record, there are still risks with backing a Kickstarter campaign—please carefully read Kickstarter's guidelines about what exactly it means when you back a project.
We're excited to implement our fulfillment plan immediately after the campaign and aim to fulfill on time to each and every backer.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
