Gymboss Interval Timer Review/Giveaway

 

Good morning, I hope you had a fab weekend. Mine was pretty relaxing. I am loving sitting on the couch and watching TV with the Christmas tree next to me. Today I am headed to the store for the last time before Thanksgiving. I hate going *too* close to turkey day because it gets so crowded, so hopefully I won’t get mowed down by crazy old ladies trying to get the last pie filling.

Today I have a fun review and giveaway. I was asked to review the Gymboss Interval Timer awhile back, but then I hurt my foot and wasn’t able to run and review it! I was able to check it out this past week and now you can have a chance to win one!

I really liked that there is a clip on the back (kind of like a beeper) so I could easily clip it to my waistband while running or working out. You can use this timer for many things other that just running sprints though:

The timer was really easy to set up and use. Here are some of the features:

  • 1 or 2 intervals – 2 seconds to 99 minutes
  • Repeat up to 99 times
  • Beep and/or Vibrate alarm
  • Alarm duration 1, 5, or 10 seconds
  • Stopwatch function
  • Secure Belt clip
  • Compact Size (1 ¾ x 2 ¼ x ½ inches)
  • Water and shock resistant

I personally have used the timer for circuit training and for running sprints. The alarm is plenty loud, and I like that if you want it to just vibrate and not beep, it has that option. Personally, I give this product a big thumbs up. If you don’t want to wear a watch and want something for timing that is portable, this is a great option. Those of you that love running with the Galloway method? This is the perfect thing for you! Did you know the Gymboss timer is the official timer of Jeff’s RunWalkRun program? It also comes in a variety of colors. The nice folks at Gymboss are going to give one away to a lucky RWS reader!

  2. I would use the Gymboss to time my intervals on the TM. I have an interval app on my iPhone, but I don’t like wearing my phone while I run.

    I sure enjoy popping into to your blog and envy your job with Running Skirts (and Disney).

  3. If I win, I will use it during the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I will also use during my training.

  8. I would use it at the WDW Marathon on 1/8/12. I love using my Garmin watch for intervals, but for a race that size, everyone’s watch is constantly beeping and it’s hard to tell whose beep is whose! I have been debating purchasing a GymBoss just for the vibration function! No more confusion!

  9. I would use it to train for my first marathon!

  19. retweeted your tweet!

  20. Oh interesting! I’d like to use this for doing intervals post-baby. I think this would be better than staring at my Garmin since my pace will likely discourage me for awhile.

  21. I would use Gymboss to help time my Crossfit intervals!

  22. I would use it in interval training during my regular workouts! I have an iPhone, but have not found an app that I really like for intervals, this is exactly what I need!

  25. I want to try it with the BodyRock workouts!

  27. I’d use it for my own bootcamp workouts or BodyRock workouts. It’d be so handy – especially since my gym doesn’t have clocks in convenient locations.

  28. I’d love to use it for burst training/tabata work outs!

  29. Definitely would use this for my walk/run intervals.

  38. I blogged about this giveaway

  39. Whoo! This is a great giveaway, Heather! I’ve come and gone from your blog (and many others of people I met/heard about through this year’s HLS) but since I don’t use Google Reader (why not?) haven’t been back for a while. This is a good post to stumble upon. ;)

    I’d use a GymBoss for high intensity workouts – for the intervals that are timed so I don’t need to lose seconds (and intensity) by checking my watch constantly. Also, it would be great to use for my clients! Thanks for the giveaway!

  40. I “liked” GymBoss on FB!

  45. I have become weak and need interval training in my life!

  46. Jonathan Davis says:

    I would use it this January to see how much time the Galloway method can shave off of my Goofy Challenge time. PRing the half and crawling the full isn’t really working for me anymore.

  47. Wow, fantastic blog layout! How long have you been
    blogging for?you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is magnificent, let alone the content!
