Time is essential for many workouts: there are no exercises in the gym that need a measurement of time spent. For this reason, timers are indispensable, both in personal format, and therefore to be kept on the wrist or belt, or wall-mounted, and therefore larger. For example, the timer is an indispensable ally for those who practice Cross Training: the beauty of this activity is in fact to condense in a short time many different activities, practically always new, passing quickly from one exercise to another. Kettlebells, sales, running, dumbbells, ropes, backrests, squats, elastic bands, lunges ... all these activities and many others must be performed within well-established times, then assigning the right periods for recovery and so on. So the timer becomes precious to give rhythm to these intense workouts, a 'gymnastic' tool that, like dumbbells and benches for the gym, helps us to lose fat mass, increase muscle mass and improve strength, coordination , balance, speed, endurance and explosiveness! But which types of timers can you choose for your workouts? Well, it all depends on your particular needs: in this category you can find personal timers, to measure your times in any context, and stopwatches to be displayed instead in plain sight in the gym.
Let's start with the famous Gymboss multifunction chronometers: small, light, versatile, resistant and intelligent, they are the perfect ally for those who want to get back into shape quickly by monitoring their activity in the gym minute by minute! The trick, however, is always to control time without becoming slaves to the clock. And this is in fact what happens, for example, to athletes who simply use the smartphone: the screen locks up and no longer shows the stopwatch, the smartphone sounds but you don't hear it because in the gym there is loud music, you get a message and stop the workout to read it ... with Gymboss nothing of this happens, to have the concentration always fixed on the workout. To warn you of the end of time, in addition to the classic beep, this multifunction stopwatch also has vibration, precious for those who put it on the wrist or belt and train with loud music; and don't forget that it counts up to 99 reps! Always here you can also find fixed wall timers - which in standby mode become simple clocks - programmable and with remote control.
