Portable Fitness Equipment

AeroFit - The Future of Fitness

Since I first began personal training in 1985 folks have stated basically the same goals: To shed fat and gain muscle, improve athleticism, heal your body,increase movement skills, spend little money and train as much as they wanted. We are pretty sure you want precisely the same, but there's a problem. You may travel, it's hard to go to the gym, or maybe you do not like the gym and/or you can't afford to build your own machine laden gym in your own home? So what do you do? Well the answer has been here for over 3 decades. The answer to true health and fitness is portable fitness equipment from the Monkey Bar Gym! Portable home gym equipment has evolved from the light resistance bands and ankle weights they will use in aerobic classes. Today portable home gym equipment is literally all you need to enter the greatest shape of your health. Whether your goal is basic overall fitness, strength, conditioning OR high level sports performance you will get it all with portable home fitness equipment.

How do I know this? To make sure I have ever done and all that my dad Bobby Hinds has ever done. Dad started the beginnings of portable home gym equipment with the beaded jump rope and training program in 1973, which sparked the Jumping rope for Heart program. He followed it down in 1976 with the first ever Portable Gym. In older times people thought my dad was crazy...still do , but he was way in front of his time. He saw an enormous need for people to stay in shape while on the road, traveling, doing exercises at home or outside. He knew that doesn't everyone wanted to workout on machines, or had the cash, time or drive to workout inside a gym or inside as an example. So, he took it upon himself to improve it and the fitness world hasn't ever been the same.

Today, portable exercise equipment can do everything you desire inside your fitness training: YOU CAN get stronger, leaner, improve athletic performance, heal & prevent injuries, increase movement skills, spend little money and train anywhere you would like, anytime you want!!! Portable fitness equipment can also allow you to follow an online training program, almost like getting your own personal trainer! As a result of all of these tremendous benefits, portable exercise equipment is a common term within the fitness industry. I feel my Dad and his company, Lifeline USA, really are a huge reason for portable exercise equipment being such an integral section of the fitness industry today. We have always believed in portable fitness equipment, so much that I opened up my Monkey Bar Gymnasium in 2001. It does not take 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 exercise equipment. Using Resistance cables, Kettlebells, Jungle Gyms, Med & D-balls, Jump Ropes, Power Push ups, Power Jumpers, Vertical Jumpers and Power Wheels all combine challenge to basic bodyweight movements, thus taking them to the next level. It's clearly the main reason everyone who trains here either online or with the Monkey Bar Gymnasium can be quite fit".

So what exactly is portable fitness equipment? Any piece of exercise equipment that you can easily pack and take around the globe and get a tremendous workout. For this reason my dad's first Portable Gym's saying was "a gym inside a bag". Portable fitness equipment gives you a great workout, not only an okay one.

It truely does work!! A workout with fantastic 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 weight-loss and 5.4 lbs of muscle gain on the first 60 days to train...did I mention, only using portable home gym equipment!

More Proof. On a recent road trip, Jessica and that i brought along our favorite Portable Exercise 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 isn't always a true piece of portable home fitness equipment, but it is a heavier version, it still is portable and definitely is home fitness equipment. On our road trip we really put all of the portable home gym equipment to the test.

Could we drive more than 3,000 miles & get great workouts concurrently? 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 collection of squat presses using the TNT Cable, the next hour a killer list of chins and rows with all the Jungle Gym, the next hour 100 doubles jumping rope as fast as possible, the next hour 40 snatches each arm together with the Lifeline Kettlebell. Honestly, it absolutely was amazing! Each set only took us 3 minutes! Whenever we would get back in the car we felt incredible! We were totally energized and capable to go and looked forward to the next hour and what we would do. By the end of the day, we had definitely, gotten a heck of the workout and we were both tired but very satisfied in if you know we not only can do these workouts anywhere at anytime, but that working out with Portable Home gym equipment is the best way to attain ultimate fitness.

A Note on the Resistance Cables - 3 big points:

1) Non-Fixed ranges of movement - meaning you must react and balance the resistance, this improves motor function and performance greatly.

2) Progressive variable resistance - as cables lengthen they surge in resistance, creating a great balance as your leverage becomes greater, it becomes greater!

3) Adjustable resistance - within seconds you can lighten or improve the resistance. This means you can match bodyweight movements with precision resistance, can load or resist approximately max loads this provides you with covering all levels of strength training from endurance to power.

There’s a lot of buzz about sustainable farming, and we couldn’t be happier. We’ve seen how much richer the soil is when we control weeds, pests and disease without toxic chemicals. We’re pretty sure it makes our harvest taste better, too.

When we started to farm, it was just the two of us. Now we’ve got kids of our own and 10 employees who’ve become our extended family. We’re all here because we absolutely love what we do.
