Ratings and Reviews
Awesome, easy to use, my music perfect!
I love this app! I’ve used it for some time now and I love the fact there are customisable timers so I can adapt what’s there, use the pre planned ones or create my own. I did upgrade to the full package but it’s been worth every penny. I can use it with my music. You can even set tracks to certain exercises if you wish or set up your fav playlist and go for it.
It has a huge screen to see the count down timer and a choice of beeps or voices to count you down, tell you what exercise is next etc. It even shows you what’s up next in the corner.
I love that the colours are changeable so I always set my rest time to grey/black for example that way even when I’m knackered I see grey I know it’s a rest!
Thanks guys you I’ve tried loads of apps and yours after at least 2yrs is the only one I use at least 3x per week that says it all really. Don’t look any further this has it all and if it doesn’t they think of it before you do!
Love this app!
I started using it after my weekly interval training sessions with a group of ladies. Once a week was not enough so I created a circuit on the app using the exercises from each workout. I could then repeat the workouts in the comfort of my own home, even while watching TV. It was like having a trainer in the room to prompt me.
Recently, I’ve entered walking workouts from the Prevention “Walk off Weight” book. In ‘name of exercise’ I put in a speed. The book might state 3-5intensity for a warmup so I named it ‘5kph’, then 1minute at 5-6intensity - I named that ‘6.5kph’. It’s great, I can quickly punch in the change of speed on my treadmill when prompted. I love having the verbal timer. Works beautifully for my 5 minute cool down stretch as well!!👍
Great timer, time consuming to program
I tried out a lot of timer apps and picked this one because it's by far the most flexible. It accommodates all my workouts, and the customisation of the timer makes life really easy too - you can get it to read out exercises and instructions to you which is really useful for new routines!
My only criticism is that the timer types aren't very accommodating. Literally none of the routines I've been given by my personal trainer or my physiotherapists fits into the templates the app offers. Thankfully the "custom timer" accommodates anything, but entering workouts this way is laborious and repetitive. Thankfully that's something you only need to do once for each routine, but it's still a timesink that feels slightly unnecessary.
