GIVEAWAY: Gymboss Timer Review & Giveaway

This is a SUPER Exciting giveaway! One winner will take home their very own Gymboss Timer! Perfect for running intervals, bootcamp drills, athletic circuits, run/ walk/ jog intervals, treadmill or eliptical circuits- you name it- the Gymboss times your workout!


My friend has a Gymboss that she uses for her walk/ run interval workouts and when I saw what it could do- I knew I had to have one! I am currently studying for my ACE Group Fitness exam so I am making up some fitness routines. I LOVE one minute interval workouts so I knew I needed a Gymboss. It works perfectly and is SO easy to use. I honestly do not know how I have lived without a Gymboss timer for this long. I love that I can set it for one minute intervals followed by a 30 second rest period. SO much better & easier to use than a stopwatch. No setting, stopping, pushing buttons, ans re-setting. Simply input your interval time(s) and you are good to go. Love that I am not limited to one setting as I want to incorporate a longer work period followed by the shorter rest period. Available in a wide variety of awesome colors:


GYMBOSS WILL MAKE ANY WORKOUT EASIER TO PLAN AND EXECUTE WITH MORE ACCURACY AND CONSISTENCY! Fantastic gymboss functions I Love:

  • 1 or 2 intervals - 2 seconds to 99 minutes- so much variety
  • Repeat up to 99 times
  • Beep and/or Vibrate alarm
  • Alarm duration 1, 5, or 10 seconds
  • Stopwatch function
  • Secure Belt clip-latches on and stays  on!
  • Compact Size (1 ¾ x 2 ¼ x ½ inches)-small enough to keep on your belt on your top or on your shoe!
  • Water and shock resist-perfect for hi impact and sweaty workouts!

    23. I checked out Gymboss' blog and liked the little blog entry about interval running. The idea of walk a minute/run a minute for half an hour seems a lot more doable than a steady run.

    61. i checked out the gymboss and would love to win one for my daughter for the holidays, she is personal trainer and i found it she could use this for her training sessions with her clients if she just attaches it to her outfit she does not need a watch or other timer to let her know when to switch what she is teaching, it times it all for her
