For me, when I workout or train, time is of the essence. Even more, timing is extremely important. Whether it is the time between my workout sets, cardio, at bootcamp or even when I am doing rounds on the punching bag, having the Gymboss Interval Timer is key to my success.
FUNK ROBERTS 8 WEEK FITNESS AND DIET PROGRAM
With the Funk Roberts 8 Week Fitness and Diet Program coming soon, having the Gymboss Timer will make it easy to plan rest. Attach the timer to your pants or belt with the convenient belt-clip and 30 seconds to one minute rest periods will be easy to time with an alarm of beep, vibrate, or both. Forget the stopwatch, clock, and other methods which demand too much of your attention, let Gymboss do the timing and you focus on the workout for the best results ever! GUARATEED!
Are you Weightlifting? Any rest period you desire (30, 60, 90 seconds, 2, 3, 5 minutes, or any other time you want) can be set. When you complete each set simply push the start button to begin timing, when it alarms (choice of beep, vibrate, or both) begin a new set.
RUNNING / WALKING
If you are a Runner/Walker who wants to improve your race time or a walker who wants to run, you can improve through the use of intervals by running for short periods at a pace significantly higher than your normal comfort zone followed by intervals of easy running or jogging. While this type of training is usually regarded as an advanced training technique for the experienced runner training to develop speed and raise their anaerobic threshold, the average runner or even walkers can benefit from this training as well.
Use Gymboss to create your own custom cardio workout for, bike (road or stationary), walk/running, treadmill, jump rope, elliptical trainer
Play your own music during your workout!!!!! Using a Gymboss timer you can do the Curves training cycle and listen to YOUR music, this timer worn on your waistline or in your pocket will vibrate to let you know when its time to change stations!!!!! You could also do your workout at home or in the facility of your choice!!!!
BOXING / MARTIAL ARTS
Boxers, Grapplers, and Martial Artists can benefit from the Gymboss personal boxing training timer which allows you to time ANY round time followed by ANY rest time from 2 seconds to 60 minutes.
Stuck in an exercise slump? Try Interval Training to revitalize your aerobic workouts. Interval Training will improve your aerobic capacity, the ability of the body to remove oxygen from the air and transfer it through the lungs and blood to the working muscles. You'll raise your anaerobic threshold; the point at which the body can no longer meet its demand for oxygen and anaerobic metabolism is accelerated. Thus, you'll be able to work out harder and longer. You'll burn more calories, thereby improving your physique, plus you'll add more challenge and interest to your workouts - keeping you on the road to fitness.
Speed training is one of the best things you can do to better your performance as an athlete. The greatest concern of today’s athletes in football, hockey, soccer, baseball, tennis, track and field, running, and almost every other sport ( except curling ) is how to improve playing speed-the speed of all movements including starting, stopping, accelerating, changing body direction, body contact, sprinting, and split-second decision making during competition.
And there still are a million other uses for the Gymboss Interval Timer. I suggest that you get one as soon as you can to assist you. It’s just another tool to help you reach you 2008 health and fitness goals.
