HIIT interval training timer

HIIT interval training timer


A simple and efficient timer that will help you during all your workouts.

This app has been created to be SIMPLE : it’s simple to set up your workout, it’s simple to use so you can forget about it during your training and just follow the sounds. And when you’re done, you can share your results with your friends on Twitter and Facebook !

First it was developed for HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts, a famous method to burn fat in a short & intense workout. But our users showed us you can use it every time you need a timer : crossfit, running, cycling, HIIT, Tabata, yoga, stretching, fitness, weightlifting ... and even cooking !


* WHAT’S HIIT ? *
High-intensity interval training (HIIT), also called high-intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE) or sprint interval training (SIT), is an enhanced form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 4–30 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning.
This definition comes from wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-intensity_interval_training) where you can find a lot more informations. It explains some very popular program, like the TABATA. HIIT is also a common practice in Crossfit trainings.


* HOW TO USE THE APP ? *
You can use it during all trainings with intervals or other timed repetition

Basically, this is how it works : on the first screen you will set up your workout phases durations (preparation time, work, rest, rounds and cool down) and you will choose your sound.
Then hit “Go !”, work and just follow the whistle !
You can listen to your own music, just make sure you can still hear the sound.
At the end of the workout, a new feature allows you to share your workout with your friends on Twitter and Facebook.


** Load preset : you can load one of our existing preset (Fat Loss, Tabata) or one you saved previously

* PHONE PERMISSIONS *
Now automatically pause and resume if a phone call arrives.
This is why PHONE_STATE permissions are required. But the app never collects and stores phone numbers from users phones.

User reviews of HIIT interval training timer
Apr 5, 2014
great app use it all the time
Nov 23, 2012
Have only used it a couple of times. I'm not doing intervals all that much, in fact all of my training is rather unstructured. Anyway, I keep it around.

Very good app!

After a rave review, I tried it again and the whistle didn't work. Bummed. Excellent for treadmill interval training with the droid x. And I love the whistle--I feel like I'm back in high school. Thanks for a great program.

Simply awesome So simple but exactly what I need. I don't get as much free time as I'd like so getting to the gym isn't always possible. With the help of this app I do a 10 minute high intensity bodyweight workout everday before work.

Galaxy s5 Please get rid of the pop ups! I don't like my workouts being interrupted. Staying on a strict time schedule is mandatory when doing metabolic workouts. Other than that... good job!
