Interval Timer

January 09 2013

If you’re looking for a cool interval timer this new year then you need to get your hands on a GymBoss Interval Timer. I’ve had mine for a few years and still use it almost every day. It’s small, super easy to use and it works like a charm. And it is built to last! I’ve had the same one for 3 years and I’ve put it through the ringer!!  I’ve dropped it, stepped on it and even lost it for a couple months but every time I think it might be time to buy a new one, I press the reboot button and it magically comes back to life!

The GymBoss can be used for all sorts of interval programs. You can set the number of rounds, the length of intervals and whether you want it to beep or vibrate. When I’m using it for boxing or short interval sessions I like to keep it on vibrate mode... it drives me crazy when you can hear an interval beeper going off every 15 seconds in the gym!

I use the GymBoss timer with all of my clients and one of my favourite interval settings to use is the Tabata Training Protocol. Tabata intervals consist of 8 rounds of 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest and they are the most effective way to burn belly fat in a very short, intense amount of time!

And if you have a smart phone you can also download the GymBoss App. It's a free application and has all the same cool features as the original GymBoss. You can find it on iTunes and I would highly recommend that you check it out!
