GENERAL MANAGER & CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER

Sports and fitness have always been a part of my life. Being able to share that passion, years of experience and knowledge with others is what motivates me. Nothing feels like making progress and seeing results.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoJANE DAWSON

FACILITIES MANAGER & SELF-DEFENSE INSTRUCTOR

Empowering women & girls with the knowledge & tools needed to help keep them safe is my passion. I've experienced first hand the impact a violent encounter can do to the spirit of a person. I've trained with some of the best people in the world for Reality Based Self-Defense. Showing women & girls how to feel incredibly powerful through this training has fueled my passion & I've been told this shines through me. As Facility Director, it's important to me that our gym feels welcoming & clean to everyone, & also that we make a positive memorable first impression to all our new clients.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoROY WILLIAMS

MEMBER RELATIONS MANAGER & CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER, CERTIFIED KRAV MAGA (L2) & STRIKEFIT

Krav Maga is simple & direct. I was drawn to its simplicity & ferocity after my first class. A truly intelligent person never loses the desire to learn. As an instructor, I am passionate about helping students develop, but I also enjoy learning with students & from other instructors. There is no room for arrogance. Monkey Bar Gym has broadened my approach to fitness because natural training is a great companion for Krav Maga & its cardio version, StrikeFit.

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER

I’m a full-time student pursuing various passions. Investing in a healthy mind and body has motivated me to overcome all obstacles. I’m devoted to inspiring others to enhance their quality of life through fitness, wellness, and fun.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoERIK CARRANZA

CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER

I am an obstacle course racer always looking for a new challenge. Nothing makes me happier than helping people overcome any challenge that life throws at them. That's why I dropped out of school and quit my job to follow my passion in fitness. Now I do what I love and love what I do.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoKIMBERLY VON DURING

CERTIFIED YOGA TEACHER

I am first & foremost an elite athlete. However, I have found the connection of strength, flexibility, breath, peace, & balance in yoga. A reciprocity of mind, body, & spirit where competitiveness goes by the wayside. In turn, I emphatically try to help others achieve this place of balance. My background in sports science, competitive sports & fitness experience, coupled with years of yoga practice & teachings allow me to offer different classes that are challenging but welcoming to all. Namaste.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoBRAD TREMBLAY

CERTIFIED KRAV MAGA INSTRUCTOR - LEVEL 1

I am a Police Officer who discovered Krav Maga after a severe injury. I have seen how violent things can be and what not being prepared can do. I strive to help everyone who comes to my class to achieve a level of preparation to ensure their safety.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoRYAN JOHNSON

CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER & CERTIFIED KRAV MAGA INSTRUCTOR - LEVEL 1

My passion is self-improvement through lifelong learning. Once I accomplish a goal, I seek the next challenge. That is what life should always be about - pushing yourself to the limits & surrounding yourself with the positive people that will help you to discover what you can accomplish. My goal as a fitness professional is similar to my goal as an educator: "To facilitate the same passion for lifelong self-improvement that I have created for myself."

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoSAMANTHA MLINAR

CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER

I strive to understand the how's and why's in everything I do. This carries into my training in that I aim to teach people how to execute each exercise properly and why it is so important to focus on form first! I love the human body and understanding everything that it can do, which is why through good foundations and hard work I hope to teach each of my clients what they are capable of. Everyone is on their own personal journey to achieve their health and fitness goals, and I am happy to be a part of that journey with each one of you!

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoROBERT JONES II

CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER

I have loved sports & fitness since I was a kid. Staying active & promoting a healthy lifestyle are important to me, as well as teaching those things to my clients. I have worked in the medical field for 8 years now, and this has only heightened my drive to help others. I'm that instructor in the gym who will not only tell you to "drop & give me twenty," but will drop & do twenty with you. My goal for each & every one of you is to motivate & help you become the best you!

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoKEVIN EMMERICH

CERTIFIED KRAV MAGA INSTRUCTOR - LEVEL 1

I began training in Krav Maga with absolutely no prior martial arts experience. Because of Krav Maga’s simple & systematic approach, I was able to become proficient within a few months, and then an instructor within a year & a half. It is my philosophy that anyone can learn to protect themselves regardless of size, strength, stamina, or experience. I believe in a simple, no nonsense approach to self-defense. Anyone who enters my classroom will feel safe, and leave feeling safer than when they arrived.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoKATHLEEN LEISING

KRAV MAGA INSTRUCTOR & MEMBERSHIP DIRECTOR

People come to MBG in all manners. As Membership Director, I am excited to help everyone find and start the right path to achieving their goals, whether it's losing weight, gaining strength/stamina or overall fitness for health. We all start somewhere and I Iove being able to support our members at the beginning of and throughout their own journey.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoASHTON CRAWLEY
CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER

Basketball has always been my passion so that is what taught me my work ethic. I was always looking to gain an advantage on the court so I really started taking my strength and jump training seriously with the help of Jon Hinds. With his help it took me to a whole different level. I try to bring that warrior mentality to everything that I do.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoBRITTANY MADDENTE

CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER & MEMBERSHIP DIRECTOR

I am a "free-spirit" who enjoys connecting, helping & engaging with others. I have always enjoyed living a healthy lifestyle, but there is nothing better than sharing it with others. It is very rewarding to give information, tips & suggestions to live and enjoy healthy living. I believe so many of us are unaware, so it is very gratifying when you are able to show someone a different perception. Namaste.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoDONNA GALLARDO

BOXING INSTRUCTOR

I started boxing at the age of 12 and quickly developed a passion for it as I competed in several state, regional & golden gloves events. I've turned that passion into teaching others the basic skills of boxing, & make them sweat one punch at a time.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoEMILY JADE

CERTIFIED YOGA TEACHER

I am a connector at my core. I love to see how different forms of movement can have a psychological benefit on the mind. I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and teaching for about 5 with the main objective of being to shed light on best ways to feel good in the body and to try to release ineffective or painful thoughts and sensations to make space to feel better and move with maximum freedom.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoERICKA HAWKE

CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER & FRONT DESK STAFF

My athletic career involved traditional Olympic style lifting & cardio. Monkey Bar Gym has welcomed me to a world of health & fitness that I didn't even know existed. It introduced me to functional, full-body resistance training & recovery. It led me to become more conscious of nutrition choices. It has improved my overall health, wellness & performance in sport. It makes me feel like a amazing! I love spreading the knowledge & watching our members transform.

MEMBERSHIP DIRECTOR

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoFRANCISCA MERAZ

MEMBERSHIP DIRECTOR

Beginning a health & fitness journey is a challenge, but it is a worthy and necessary one. New members bring with them emotional challenges, family commitments, academic stress--the list goes on. As a membership director, I strive to ensure that everyone I consult with feels embraced & supported as they enter into this very unique fitness community at MBG.

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoJASON DENZER

CERTIFIED KRAV MAGA INSTRUCTOR - LEVEL 3

I have always been interested in martial arts but regrettably a tourist when it came to training & having discipline. This was until a time in my life when I felt very lost and directionless when I found Krav Maga. It has given me direction, confidence, strength & passion that was void in my life. I truly enjoy teaching what I have learned over many years to inspire people and give them skills, confidence & power in such an uncertain world.

CERTIFIED NATURAL TRAINER

monkey bar gym milwaukee logoLARRY BIRKETT

CERTIFIED YOGA TEACHER

I love how yoga illuminates connection: connection of body, mind and spirit, connection of the community of yogis taking class together, connection of all living beings, and how yoga meets every practitioner unconditionally, wherever they happen to be on their individual journey - without judgement. My classes are challenging, fun and safe with modifications for all levels and everybody and will include breathwork and meditation. We will be working on creating strength and flexibility in our minds, our bodies and our hearts. Namaste.
