You won’t find this equipment at your local park. Instead, the Monkii Bars are a lightweight, portable suspension-training tool.
Use them at home, in your office, at a park, or while camping and traveling—the whole system is completely self-contained within the sleek bars.
Here’s how it works. Remove the 18-foot suspension line from the bars, then throw the line over a branch or hook it up to a door with carabiners and webbing. (A door-attachment accessory is still in the works.) Use the loop to adjust the length, and voilà, you have a personal-training system. The kit also includes training and set-up-anywhere guides.
Work on upper and lower body strength or use the bars to extend your flexibility. Because the Monkii Bars can be used and stored almost anywhere, you’ll have no more excuses for not working out. The product is set to ship later this summer.
