I am sure many of you have heard of Gymboss before.  Well, you may be wondering how you could implement it in your workout.  Well I was excited that Mark from Gymboss sent me over one to try out and I have good news for you at the end of this post so make sure to read all the way through.

What did I think about the Gymboss?  Well, first of all I appreciate that the Gymboss is affordable at $19.95 and is small; it is the size of a pager, so it is easy to take with you wherever you go.  (for some reason today my blog is not allowing to put in the picture I took so here is the one from their website)


What I LOVE about this is not having to look at my watch every few seconds to see when my interval will be done.  I don’t have to look at all if I don’t want.  You just set your work time and your rest time, add the amount of intervals and you are set to concentrate on your workout rather then the clock.   

And for someone like me who really hates taking the time to follow long directions to set something up, this was simple.  Just a 3-button setup that allows you to quickly change interval times for different workouts.

I also like that the alarm is nice and loud (you can do a long or a short beep) so I can hear it over the loud music and my own loud voice during my classes.  It also has a vibration function that lets you know when to start and stop, even when using headphones or an ipod.  

If you are interval training or using a stopwatch for sprints, the Gymboss has you covered as it provides both functions.

You ready for the good news?  Gymboss will give one of my lucky readers your very own Gymboss to aid you in your training.  What do you have to do to enter?  It is simple.  "Like" my FB page and Gymboss FB page and then tag both of us in a post about how you would use the Gymboss timer. (Simply typing "@gymboss" will bring up their Facebook page for the post and @Designed To Be Fit will bring up mine....make sure to like it first).   For an extra entry follow my blog (look on the right hand side) and tell me that you did.  For one last entry share this giveaway on your FB page.  If you do not have FB, get with the program...hehe kidding, just check out their webpage and leave me a comment telling me how you would use the Gymboss timer.  Good luck everyone.

I will randomly select a winner on Tuesday January 15th.
