Gymboss Interval Timer Giveaway!

Have you ever heard that if you truly want something, you need to put it out into the Universe? Weeeeell I guess it counts if you put it on your facebook fan page!!! My birthday was a month ago and at the top of my list was the Gymboss Interval timer and of course I had to share it on facebook! And not only did I get one…but I got received two for my big 3 2 !!!!! Who is a happy girl? THIS GIRL!

I was lucky enough to have one sent to me from Gymboss AND one of my clients brought me one too!

Price: at only $19.95, the Gymboss is much more affordable compared to other watches/timers that can cost well over $100.

Size: the Gymboss is the size of a pager, so it can go wherever you go. Whether you’re traveling for business and don’t feel like sitting in your hotel room or you want to exercise at the beach, this timer takes up very little space.

Features: if you are interval training or using a stopwatch for sprints, the Gymboss has you covered as it provides both functions.

Accuracy: why worry about constantly looking at the clock to see when to resume your workout? Gymboss allows you to precisely time your work-to-rest time ratios, allowing you to concentrate on your muscle group instead of the clock.

Goals: whether you want to shed pounds or increase your reps in a given time period, this timer will help you reach your fitness objectives.

Simplicity: the Gymboss offers a simple, easy to use 3-button setup that allows you to quickly change interval times for different workouts.

Alarms: the timer has a vibration function that lets you know when to start and stop, even when using headphones or an ipod. Gymboss also has a long as well as short beeper alert for when you’re in a noisy gym.

Time constraints: accurate timing gives your workout structure within the workout, thus giving you control of the overall duration of each session. This leaves you more time for many of the other things life may throw at you.

My fave feature is that you can set two separate intervals so you can use one for Effort and one for Recovery…

Here is an example of how I use it…This workout was 11 moves, so I set it for 11 Cycles, 30 seconds recovery and 50 seconds effort.

I have also been using the timer with my clients and they love it as well…it makes our sessions fly by because we jump from one move to the next and by the end of it, they have completed an effective full body workout.
