The Gymboss is one of
my favorite pieces of running gear.
It's cheap, easy to use and makes interval running a breeze.
Check out my Gymboss interval timer review below for more information.
Intervals the Hard Way...
I used to do my intervals with help of the stop watch function
watch. The problem is that you can only record one time on a stop
So if I'd have to do a 4 minute hard, 3 minute easy session, I
would do 7 minutes on my stop watch, and then keep track of the 4
Very annoying and it makes those runs very restless. You are constantly
looking at your watch to make sure you do not miss the next split.
... and the Easy Way
The Gymboss makes it all a lot easier.
And it is oh so simple.
The Gymbosstimer does not
have one, but two timers.
Why did nobody think of that before?
So when I now do my 4 min hard, 3 min easy, I set those two times in
the Gymboss, clip it onto my running shorts and get out of the door.
After each period is finished you get a little signal. Either a beep
(hard/soft) and/or a vibration.
You don't have to look at the clock anymore, you simply wait for the
signal and change pace. It is incredible how something so simple can
make such a difference to your pleasure.
Just concentrate on
your running and let the Gymboss interval timer do the rest.
There is a
counter in it as well, so at the end of your session (or during your
session) you can see how many you have done and can work out how long
you have been running for.
Gymboss timer setup is really easy. By use of three buttons you can
change the setup into stopwatch or double timer, you can vary the
length of the intervals (upto the second with a minimum of 1 second and
maximum of 99 min 59 sec).
I love the Gym boss.
It is the cheapest piece of running gear I have got, but also my
It comes with me on all my interval sessions.
Great idea as well when you are doing a run/walk
