Gymboss Interval Timer Giveaway

Gymboss Interval Timer Giveaway

Hello hello! I’m excited to kick off the week with a giveaway that couldn’t possibly be more fitting for Pumps & Iron. Interval training is one of my favorite ways to workout (it’s so effective!), and I’ve teamed up with Gymboss to give one lucky reader a new Gymboss Interval Timer. The timer is awesome—super easy to set custom intervals and it can clip right on to your waistband. And most importantly, it comes in a bunch of different colors, so you can get one that matches your sneakers. Priorities! 

An interval timer is crucial for a ton of the workouts I post here. For example, in this tabata kettlebell workout, you’d set your Gymboss Interval Timer for 8 rounds of 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. For workouts that don’t have a rest interval, you can just set the second interval on your timer to 0—super versatile!

Simply leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite interval workout—maybe you love tabata, or recently took a class at your gym, or have a favorite blog or website that posts interval workouts, or maybe you’re a total teacher’s pet and love one of my routines (A+ for you!). For extra entries, you can follow me and/or Gymboss on Twitter and like us on Facebook.

The winner will be randomly selected on Friday evening and can pick any color for their new Gymboss Interval Timer. Good luck!
