Therms and Privacy Policy:

Use this gym timer for training with weights, kettlebells, bodyweight exercises, crossfit, 7 minute workout, WOD, TRX, cardio exercises, stretching, spinning, calisthenics, tabata, boot camp circuit workout training, or any other high intensity interval training.

This fitness timer will be useful for sprints, push-ups, jumping jacks, sit-ups, cycling, running, boxing, plank, weightlifting, martial arts, and other fitness activities.

Whether it’s for your HIIT workouts, circuit training in the gym or at-home bodyweight training workouts, this exercise timer is for you.

Numerous studies have shown that HIIT workouts burn more fat than regular training because they speed up metabolism within 24 hours after exercise. Production of growth hormone that affects the intensity of fat burning, increased up to 450%. HIIT accelerates metabolism, increases aerobic endurance, increases the level of tissue oxygen consumption.

IMO crazy ,

Great App!

I’m a trainer and love using tabata/exercise timers to keep me organized and sessions flowing smoothly. I always said I wished I had a TABATA timer where I could add text to it so I could stop looking at my paper to remember what’s next in our circuit. This app has exceeded what I wanted. Not only is it easy to navigate, there are many different settings.
The fact I can add pictures to the session is so helpful when the client needs a quick reminder of what the exercises is. The cherry on top was the voice assistance. I have a blind client that partners with another client. Sometimes I’m quickly helping one client and the other is waiting for me to verbalize the next instruction. The voice assistance is going to hopefully make her feel even more independent in our sessions. Great app and great price!

Great App

The free version is good, not great. BUT it’s free! It allows you to save two workouts, but if you take five minute before your workout to edit either of the two, you can have any workout you choose. It takes a little extra time to edit each time, but it’s worth it.

I think paying for the upgrade is probably also worth it because you would not have to edit every time. You could save numerous workouts and just start!

I love this app. It provides bells and voice activated that tell me what’s up next. You can record positive messages for yourself too :) You can listen to music while using the app and it will lower its volume temporarily while the app tells you what’s next. The countdowns help as well with keeping me motivated. I love the workouts I’m getting with this app!

I get so many compliments during PT!

I got this to try with a neighborhood hiit group… but ended up in physical therapy (unrelated). I upgraded so I could use it as a timer since I’m HORRIBLE at counting reps!! So set up a few “workouts” for 2 part exercises/stretches and let it count my reps! Then a few are too rapid, so it’s timed to each set!

I was able to put all my exercises together into a sequence and can go right through all my bodywork exercises myself- i put a “1 rep” exercise in for when I need to add/change equipment!

The Physical Therapists and aids are so impressed with the assistive speech! I love that it TELLS me what to do when!

The only thing I wish is that I could have it say “prepare for _____” and have it list the exercise/workout name. A not-as-important-cool-option (already found a work-around of a one rep workout) would be the option to manually progress through a sequence (it doesn’t start till you hit “go”) and third-probably-just-I-want-it, is an optional rep counter 🥰

Very low on the “improvements required” list and heartily in the “this would be cool” options. And AFFORDABLE!! ♥️♥️♥️

As an add on: I love that it’s highly customizable but without unnecessary bells and whistles!!
