Hey all! I am currently trying super hard not to fall asleep as I sit & wait a few hours in between flights. I’m tellin’ you, after an awesome day teaching the Under Armour What’s Beautiful Event & then getting right onto a plane – it’s a bit hard to keep these eyes peeled right now Winking smile  snacking on puffins & a chai tea from starbucks is helping though! A full recap of the event will be coming soon! Everyone did amazing & it was such a fun time!

This morning during the event, we incorporated some interval training (aka HIIT) into the workout! My friends at GYMBOSS define interval training as “varying the intensity within a workout.” The Swedes call this “Fartlek”, or speed play. You add intensity in short bouts that you could not sustain throughout the session. If you consistently keep a moderate intensity during your cardiovascular conditioning your body may adapt over time. Adding in some intervals is a great way to increase your fitness level!

The Gymboss timer is one of my favorite fit gadgets to use during workouts! The Gymboss can be used as a repeating interval timer, countdown timer, or a stopwatch. My friends at GYMBOSS are offering you all a chance to win an Interval Timer to help motivate you through your workouts & intervals! I love using mine with other forms of equipment for some TABATA workouts.

Whenever I use the word Tabata, people look at me like I’m crazy (if they’ve never heard of it)…or I’m just crazy. The name comes from a Japanese researcher who discovered a way to increase both anaerobic and aerobic pathways at the same time.

Here’s an example of how to set up a Tabata Workout via Gymboss –

after warming up, take one exercise and perform it in the following manner:

  1. For twenty seconds, do as many reps as possible, or run, bike as hard as you can
  2. Rest for ten seconds
  3. Repeat seven more times!

You can see some examples of my Tabata workouts [Shoulder Tabata Workout] & [Bicep & Tricep Tabata].

Some cool facts about the Timer:

  • One or two different time intervals from 2 seconds to 99 minutes
  • Auto mode keeps repeating through intervals
  • Set up to 99 rounds
  • Manual mode acts as countdown timer
  • Stopwatch Function
  • Alarm by beep, vibration, or both
  • Alarm duration of 1, 5, or 10 seconds
  • Size of a small pager (1 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches)
  • Water and shock resistant

I like it too because it has an easy to use clip so you can clip it onto your clothes, which is also cool for the outdoors! You can also get a TON of ideas on how to use it at the DailyHiit.com & if you’re interested in purchasing one you can check them out here!
