One question I keep getting from friends, family and blog readers is about the intervals workouts on my blog:
I don’t have a timer, how do I know I’m doing the intervals right?
Simple, you download an iPhone app! I’m sure there are apps for other phones but as I have an iPhone I’m more comfortable posting about those. Two free apps I use are Gymboss and Interval Timer. Yes that’s right FREE, no excuses! Download them today and get working out!
GYMBOSS iPhone app
Gymboss is an app I used for a while, then for some reason it broke, but now the new version is out and it works again 🙂 Hurrah. I like the gymboss as it’s pretty easy to use and has no ads. Which for a free app is rare. The only downside with this one is you can’t change your music directly from the app. This app is based on their popular standalone gymboss timer which I’ll be doing a review on later in the month 🙂 Screenshots below

INTERVAL TIMER iPhone app
The app that I used whilst gymboss was out of action was a free app called “interval timer“. This has a kinda generic looking app logo but works really well for a free app! Plus the interval timer has the ability to edit playlist selection directly on the app. Downside: ads! You can buy the ad free version of interval timer for $1.99 which isn’t bad, but personally for the features you get if ads are an issue just download the Gymboss app instead. Another feature of the interval timer is the ability to post your workout to social media sites like facebook and twitter, which if you want everyone to know you just killed a workout then that could be beneficial. This is available on both the free and paid versions of the app. Screenshots below

So NO EXCUSES, download your free iPhone interval app and get busy with one of my workouts!
Hi, this is just a 36 years old middle-aged man.
It came to me that I should start exercising when I looked at my big belly. I have searched for personal training and group PT sessions but the prices were much more expensive than I have thought. I wanted to receive personal training sessions but the expenses were over my budget as I don’t have sustainable income.
I had no other choice but to exercise all alone. I didn’t know where the start and what to do. So I think I used each and every exercise applications on iPhone App Store and Google Play. However, there were no applications that matched my taste. The programs were poor or I wasn’t able to focus on the exercise. Often, I was not able to make an exercise program in accordance with my own desire.
I have been thinking continuously to find out a way to assist people with such needs so that he or she may continue exercising in a systematical manner without giving up easily. Through the process, I have designed an exercise application improving the discomforts I felt before.
The name of the application is “Interval Timer.” The application was designed to serve people who are willing to exercise alone and there are four strengths in this application.
1. The application tells the user the exercise of the day. More than 600 exercise programs are provided and more will be added in the future.
2. The personal trainer feature will advise the user when starting to exercise. The feature tells the user the reason for exercising, provides advices on the posture, and congratulates for enduring hard time.
3. All the features are provided free of charge. The user may also make, edit, and manage their own exercise program.
4. The application can be run on iPad and the contents are all localized in English, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, and Korean language. 😀
I would like people to enjoy exercising without financial, temporal, and spatial restraints. So that is exactly why I have made this ‘Interval Timer Application’ so that all the places may act as a fitness center only with iPhone or iPad.
Please provide us with the feedback on the ‘Interval Timer’ application so that the application may become the world’s best exercise application. We will improve the application by reflecting your precious opinion. Thank you very much. 😀
