Saturday Review & Giveaway: The Gymboss | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


UPDATED::  The winner of the pink Gymboss was Dawn at Babyboy3!  Congrats, Dawn!  Send your info to [email protected] and we will get this out to you!!

I don’t like the treadmill at all. Like, at all. I get really bored and am constantly looking at the clock. When I try to cover up the clock with a towel, it’s not much better. The towel falls off or I have a skewed sense of how much time has passed.

For me, treadmill = BLEH!

That’s why I jumped at the chance to try out the Gymboss Interval Timer.

It’s super small and easy to use.  I just set the device to the interval times I wanted (I chose 1 minute and 2 minutes), clipped it onto my waistband and hit start.  I set the treadmill for a speed that was fast for me and when the timer went off at 1 minute, I slowed down to a more comfortable pace.

When the timer went off two minutes later, I bumped the treadmill back up to the faster speed.  The intervals repeated until I got my full distance in.  When you’re done, you just turn it off.  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

Christy received one, too, and she loves it just as much as I do.  It seriously makes treadmill running so much easier, but there are so many uses for this little guy.  Running, yoga, biking, weight lifting, jumping rope, plank holds…the possibilities are endless!

Here is some of the other features:

  • 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
  • AAA battery required
