Since I first began personal training in 1985 people have stated basically the same goals: To lose
fat and gain muscle, improve athleticism, heal the body,increase movement skills, spend little
money and train whenever and wherever they wanted. I am pretty sure you want the same, but
there's a problem. Maybe you travel, it's hard to get to the gym, or maybe you don't like the gym
and/or you can't afford to build your own machine laden gym at home? So what do you do? Well
the answer has been here for over 30 years. The answer to true physical fitness is portable fitness
equipment from the Monkey Bar Gym! Portable fitness equipment has evolved from the light
resistance bands and ankle weights they use in aerobic classes. Today portable fitness equipment
is literally all you need to get into the greatest shape of your life. Whether your goal is basic overall
fitness, strength, conditioning OR high level sports performance you can get it all with portable
How do I know this? It is all I have ever done and all that my dad Bobby Hinds has ever done. My
Dad started the beginnings of portable fitness equipment with the beaded jump rope and training
program in 1973, which sparked the Jump Rope for Heart program. He followed it up in 1976 with
the first ever Portable Gym. Back in the day people thought my dad was crazy...still do , but he
was way ahead of his time. He saw a huge need for people to stay in shape while on the road,
traveling, working out at home or outside. He knew that not everyone wanted to workout on machines, or had the money, time or drive to workout in a gym or inside for that matter. So, he took it
upon himself to change it and the fitness world has never been the same.
Today, portable fitness equipment can do everything you desire in your fitness training: YOU CAN
get stronger, leaner, improve athletic performance, heal & prevent injuries, increase movement skills, spend little money and train anywhere you want, anytime you want!!! Portable fitness
equipment can also allow you to follow an online training program, almost like having your own
personal trainer! Because of all of these tremendous benefits, portable fitness equipment is a
common term in the fitness industry. I feel my Dad and his company, Lifeline USA, are a huge
reason for portable fitness equipment being such an integral part of the fitness industry today. I
have always believed in portable fitness equipment, so much that I opened up my Monkey Bar
Gymnasium in 2001. It is the first hard core strength and conditioning training facility in the country
that uses ONLY portable fitness equipment!
"Full body anywhere, anytime training is all we do and all we've ever done" says Monkey Bar
Gymnasium, Certified Natural Trainer, Jessica Rucker. "We teach movement mastery first and
then add resistance via portable fitness equipment. Using Resistance cables, Kettlebells, Jungle
Gyms, Med & D-balls, Jump Ropes, Power Push ups, Power Jumpers, Vertical Jumpers and
Power Wheels all add more challenge to basic bodyweight movements, thus taking them to the
next level. It's clearly the main reason everyone who trains with us either online or at the Monkey
Bar Gymnasium is incredibly fit".
So what exactly is portable fitness equipment? Any piece of exercise equipment that you can
easily pack and take anywhere in the world and get a tremendous workout. That is why my dad's
first Portable Gym's tag line was "a gym in a bag". Portable fitness equipment gives you a great
workout, not just an okay one.
IT WORKS!! A workout with really good portable fitness equipment improves your strength
(functional muscle), conditioning (leaner body), sports performance, agility, mobility, stability,
strength and power. Want proof, At the Monkey Bar Gymnasium we AVERAGE 17 lbs of fat loss
and 5.4 lbs of muscle gain over the first 60 days of training...did I mention, only using portable
More Proof. On a recent road trip, Jessica and I brought along all of our favorite Portable Fitness
Equipment, a Power Push Up, Jungle Gym, TNT Cable, Power Wheel, Power Jump Rope and
even the new Lifeline Kettlebell. Yes, the Lifeline Kettlebell. This may not be a true piece of
portable fitness equipment, but it is a heavier version, it still is portable and definitely is fitness
equipment. On our road trip we really put all of the portable fitness equipment to the test.
Could we drive more than 3,000 miles & get great workouts at the same time? The answer
was definitely YES!!Every hour we drove, we stopped and did a killer set with each piece of
equipment. One hour we did a set of squat presses with the TNT Cable, the next hour a killer set
of chins and rows with the Jungle Gym, the next hour 100 doubles jumping rope as fast as
possible, the next hour 40 snatches each arm with the Lifeline Kettlebell. Honestly, it was
amazing! Each set only took us 3 minutes! When we would get back in the car we felt incredible!
We were totally energized and ready to go and looked forward to the next hour and what we would
do. By the end of the day, we had without question, gotten a heck of a workout and we were both
tired but very satisfied in knowing that we not only can do these workouts anywhere at anytime,
but that working out with Portable Fitness Equipment is the best way to attain ultimate fitness.
The World is your Playground" workout anywhere / anytime (AA), indoors or outside!!!
Lets lay out a Backpack of Portable Fitness Equipment for you to workout AA!!
1) Jungle Gym: Pure bodyweight training: chin ups (assisted to kip ups), push ups, dips, rows, flys,
assisting pistols /1 leg squats, leg curls, runners, core rollouts and lots more. One piece of
equipment that can do full body training for strength & conditioning! Weight about 1.5 lbs, fits
2) TNT Cable: Pure resistance training: squats, full extensions, cable cleans, presses, Russian
twists, diagonal chops & lifts, resisted running & backpedaling, 1 arm punches, rows and
lots more. Weight about 1 lb., fits in large pocket.
3) Power Jump Rope: Pure conditioning training: probably the single best tool for overall full body

We put them all together in the Portable Monkey Bar Gym. It even includes a comprehensive
Add more fun to your BackPack with the following:
The Power Push up: Voted Best piece of exercise equipment by Mens Fitness. Can adjust from 20
to 270 lbs of resistance for your push ups. Weight 2.5 lbs., fits in backpack easily.
The Power Jumper: The Best Jump Training device on the market...and it's portable! Get the
Jump Training DVD, it's great. You can do all lower body exercises with it too. Athletes average 68" improvements over 12 weeks of training. Weight 2.5 lbs, fits in backpack too.
A Note on the Resistance Cables - 3 big points:
1) Non-Fixed ranges of motion - meaning you must react and balance the resistance, this
improves motor function and performance greatly.
2) Progressive variable resistance - as cables lengthen they increase in resistance, creating an
excellent balance as your leverage becomes greater, it becomes greater!
3) Adjustable resistance - in seconds you can lighten or increase the resistance. This means you
can match bodyweight movements with precision resistance, can load or resist up to max loads
thus giving covering all levels of strength training from endurance to power.
In general portable fitness equipment is in a league of its own. It's accessible, light weight and
convenient but yet can generate max resistance loads if needed or maximum challenge of
exercise if needed, it literally can do it all!! With portable fitness equipment you never need to stop
your workouts because of business trips or vacations and working out at home with $1,000.00's of
dollars of bulky equipment has become a thing of the past. Compare that with a mere $100 or so
for all of the above listed portable fitness equipment. You can use portable fitness equipment to
perform online training with any of the great sites out there, and achieve incredible results!
