Gymboss Interval Timer
The Gymboss Interval Timer is a gadget I have no idea how I lived without for so long.
I found out about The Gymboss from Zuzana Light's great website: http://bodyrock.tv I purchased the timer by following the link provided on her website, as she is an affiliate. I have no connection to her or the Gymboss company - I just think this is a must have product, and for $19.99, a great value for the workout fanatic!
The timer is super useful for Zuzana's interval, often tabata style workouts that demand focus on what your body is doing, not on keeping track of the time. But, the timer complements any regime that includes repeating intervals of work and rest. The packaging also suggests, "Boxing/Martial Arts, Weightlifting, Running/Sprinting, Cardio, Crossfit and Kettlebells.
Additionally, the Gymboss can be used as a stop watch and count down timer.
The tiny unit is only about 2 inches by 1.5 inches, is lightweight and easily clips onto your clothing.
You set the timer for one or two intervals and for the desired number of rounds, press start and you have accurate perfectly timed intervals denoted by a pleasant beep or vibration.
No watch on the wrist to interfere with upper body work and no glancing up and down, sometimes impossibly during an intense interval workout.
