Jonny and Jessica Hinds

Hi, we're Jonny and Jessica Hinds

Owners of Monkey Bar Gym


This is our Story


Jonny's father, Bobby Hinds, founded and owned Lifeline USA, a company that created and developed hundreds of functional fitness equipment. He also created the Jump for Heart program, a popular fitness program in the 1970s. My mom, Joy Hinds, helped run Lifeline USA but also had a strength in interior design and was featured in Better Homes and Gardens.

Jumping became an obsession of Jonny's as early as he can remember. He used to leave fingerprints on the family home door frames in his attempts to jump higher. He trained hours a day in jump training, and eventually, after many trials and errors in creating and developing his Power Jumper, he got a fantastic result.  He took his vertical jump from 25" to 48"! He developed the Power Jumper in 1997. Athletes like Christiano Ronaldo and Antonio Brown still use this product today.



Jessica grew up in an artistic environment with her dad, an art teacher, and her mom, a piano teacher. Jessica has excelled at helping people realign their bodies to help them gain range of motion and help them heal chronic aches and pains. Jessica is a Certified Neuro-muscular Therapist, Reflexologist, and BAASE Yogi at an extremely high level! Her art assists people in understanding how positioning their mindset to be more positive when dealing with physical adversity is part of the process of living a fulfilled life.

Jonny opened the Monkey Bar Gym in 1999. Jonny and Jessica met in 2001 during a hip-hop party he threw at the gym. They married in 2014 on Jonny's family farm.  

Together, they have created and developed training methodologies that have allowed people to accomplish physical feats they never thought possible or had given up on. They continue to stay curious in their field of health and wellness.  

They live in Venice, California, with their two Great Danes, Sophi and Bodhi.

Jonny started developing fitness equipment in the 1990's that is still used by thousands


In 1997, Jonny started my list of inventions with the Power Wheel.
He was inspired to create this product when he saw a documentary of Lyle Alzado doing push-up plyometrics on the beach while his trainer held his feet.
He thought it would be great if Lyle didn't have anyone holding his feet so he could go farther.
So that day, he took a tire off his bike, strapped plates to it with a long axel rod in the center, and taped his feet to the plates.
He used it in the parking lot of the Lifeline USA building, doing the same plyometric push-ups that Lyle was doing, and then added sideways and backward jumps.

The next day, he woke up and could barely get out of bed because his abs were so sore!
He realized this idea worked amazingly as a strengthening tool, and the Power Wheel was born in 1997.
In 2001, Men's Fitness Magazine voted the Power Wheel as the #1 Fitness Tool
Since then, he invented many other excellent fitness tools: the Power Push Up, the Power Jumper, the Lateral Resistor, the Vertical Jumper, the Power Sports Trainer, and the Jungle Gym XT!! The very 1st suspension trainer in the world!!
