    Just finished using it for the first time, bottom line, it works great. I use it for interval training in martial arts, very easy to use and change between exercises. Loud enough for me to hear when to change Thanks for your help.

    Man, this thing is perfect...I also like the fact that it counts "sets" as well...
    good job! and thanks for your help!

    Happily, the good folks at Gymboss make an inexpensive timer expressly for this purpose.
    Mine came in the mail after just a couple days, and it's perfect. It's twenty bucks, is about the size of a small pager, has just three buttons and is very simple to set up, and is configurable to just about any workout via these options:
    • You can set it to countdown once, and then repeat each time you press a button, or set it to automatically repeat without pressing anything.
    • You can set a single interval to repeat, or dual intervals of different lengths (so you can set a work interval, and a rest interval of a different time).
    • Intervals can be set down to the second.
    • The alarm can be either a soft beep, a loud beep, a vibration, or any combination of beeping and vibrating.
    • The alarm can further be set to go off for one second or ten seconds.

    Furthermore, in "repeat" mode the timer will tell you how many intervals you've completed! There's nothing like the right tool for the job, and this is the right tool.

    Prior to the Gymboss I was using my Timex Ironman Triathlon to time my rounds and my Tabata workouts. The main problems where:

    - the watch has no vibrate mode so I could not be used in a group class. It was also very hard to hear the beeps over my headphones when working out with my iPod.

    - the watch was sometimes hard to wear with bag gloves. Now I can simply clip the Gymboss on my waist band. I can even clip it directly on the Obi (the belt of the Karate Gi or uniform).

    Thanks again for this simple product making my life better.

    I bought my Gymboss at the Arnold to deal with a workout
    partner that talks more than he lifts. The Gymboss is perfect. No need to be rude with this in the gym.
    Thanks a lot!

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my recent purchase of my Gymboss Timer! I have been using it recently for interval training of both jump roping, and heavy bag boxing workouts. It is very easy to use. The dual timers are terrific and much better than a standard countdown time. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to have an accurate and productive workout.
    Best regards,

    WOW WOW WOW!!! I absolutely LOVE the timer. It is EXACTLY what I have been looking for!

    Received today! Wow what service!!! Used it already and it is excellent!!!!!Rarely am I impressed with stuff but this is one neat piece of kit!!
    Thanks so much,

    I received my Gymboss timer today and it is excellent! Smaller than I thought it would be (that's a good thing)! Easy to use, small, versatile, and ready to go whenever you are.
    Thank you,

    I just want to tell you how pleased I am with this Gymboss. I never thought I'd be so proud of something so small :) It's perfect! At first I found myself thinking..."Well if it only had this, or that" but the reality is that it does
    "Exactly" what it's supposed to do - time intervals. I run 3 minutes then walk 3 minutes in Dual mode. I stretch each muscle for one minute in Single mode. I circuit train with a heavy bag, punch some - rest some. I circuit train with
    weights and machines to specific intervals - The Bruce Lee Workout - and with precise control of time I know I'm getting a full dose of each segment. OK I could go on but I'll stop here. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You have a very useful product that I plan on using the rest of my life so don't go anywhere!

    Got the boss over the weekend and I absolutely love it. I use it for Tabata as it is a great solution to the timing problem. Love the price, too.

    I received my GYMBOSS Timer yesterday and used it this morning. I love it!
    I like using the Tabata method of training and finally both my workout partner and I could actually train at the same time without one of us having to wait while watching the clock and calling out times for the other. The dual alarm was loud enough for both of us to hear it so we could stay focused on our work and not the clock. This is really going to improve the efficiency of our workouts. Great product!

    For a long time I have been looking for a simple timer for working out in rounds. You would think this to be a simple task, right?
    Wrong. I have had a very hard time finding something simple to count rounds for me. In my numerous trips to the mall and sports stores all I could ever find were stop watches, cooking timers, or full fledged commercial gym timers. It would be pretty sweet to own a real boxing / kickboxing gym timer. With those timers you can adjust the round duration (usually 2 min. or 3 min.) and rest period (30 sec. or 1 min.). You also get a warning near the end of the round and a bell to signify the beginning and end of each round. Some even have red, yellow, and green lights to signify which period you are in.

    Wow, that sounds great! Why didn't I just buy one of them? Well, one of these babies will cost about $150 - give or take a few. I am not willing to spend that kind of money on a timer until I own my own commercial gym. That is the reason I have been searching for a more simple timer - because something simple should theoretically cost less. After some more searching I found some simple round timers meant for boxing and martial arts on eBay. Still, these came with quite a price tag,
    anywhere from $60 - $100.

    Finally, I found the GYMBOSS timer. This timer is exactly what I was looking for. It is small, easy to program, has the features I need, and is inexpensive at $19.95 USD.

    Received the timer last week and it works great. The setup is easier than I thought it would be. I plan to use mostly for Tabata and that seems to set up just fine. I am a CrossFit person so this is just what I have been looking for.

    I used the timer today. It was great! It helped me use
    my time more efficiently and also intensified my work out by limiting the amount of break I had.

    The Gymboss rocks. Seriously. Get one. I've known about this thing for a year and can't believe I didn't snag one before. Incredibly useful, and much better than a watch with an alarm and an iPod with timed MP3s. I've used both, and there's just no comparison.

    I can now also be much more accurate with determining work/rest periods, as well as how many sets and/or rounds my clients and Officer Candidates have done during training and PT sessions.
