Be the Boss of the Gym with Your Gymboss Interval Timer. Tabata Time.

My days are pretty hectic....well at least they were until this week. For the past two years I have been getting up at 5:30 a.m. for my workout. I was leaving for work at 7:30 a.m. and got home from my second job at 10:00 p.m..

I had to find a way to workout efficiently. Sometimes moving from bench press to lat pulldowns without rest inbetween.  Weights for 15 to 20 minutes then treadmill until time to get ready for work.

Well, my best tool to keep me moving has been my Gymboss Interval Timer. Inexpensive and invaluable. Rugged and accurate.

I bought two. One I use for straight timed events (rest periods) the other I use for Tabata training.

Tabata training involves doing 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for a total of 8 rounds.

An example would be a 20-second sprints and 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times for a total of 4 minutes.
