These plates are amazing. When ordering any item that gets used in pairs, the quantity should default to two items automatically. I thought i had chosen 2 plates but only one was originally shipped. Then i had to order another one. The quality of the plates are some of the best iv seen. (Posted on 2013-09-14)
This little gadget is far superior to any sports watch I've owned. It can be used for intervals or as a stop watch. I do interval HIT weightlifting and bodyweight workouts and I'm really hooked on Gymboss. I don't have to worry with setting my watch on the computer or glancing at it from time to time. Moreover, I can set the Gymboss to time my exercises and my rests and time needed to go to the next exercise. This is a terrific feature.
The beep or alarm can be set to be loud or softer or even vibrate or any combination of these. It's really well made and nice looking. When you have it on you forget you're wearing it until it goes to work. It uses one AAA battery and when not used for several minutes, it goes into sleep mode to save any drain on the battery.
Setup takes just a bit of time to learn. The instructions that come with the unit are not great. But the website is rich with video instructions and a PDF file you can download. I found that by watching the videos I quickly got the hang of what the buttons are and how to set it up and use it. Be sure and watch these videos before you use your Gymboss. You'll be glad you did.
I next did a short workout. I set the number of exercises I would do and the amount of time for each one plus the time I needed to go to the next exercise. It's great not to have to watch the clock or count reps or worry about the time. I do slow reps and really don't count reps. I'm more concerned with the intensity and time. So I love the Gymboss.
Some features of Gymboss include:
* 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
Gymboss helps you maximize, Anaerobic endurance, Cardio endurance, Increased VO2max, Muscle strength, size, and endurance and
Fat loss. I can't imagine doing a workout without Gymboss. It's quickly become my fitness buddy. I can't imagine any workout that wouldn't be more powerful with this little gadget, no matter what fitness program you use. There are many ways to use it so it will increase the intensity of your workout and let you concentrate on accomplishing your fitness goals.
Gymboss will count sets, reps, even the length of time you take for a rep if you want that. In fact, if you need to time anything, you can easily do it with this little thing. The rubberized exterior is really great too. No fingerprints on the unit. Has a nice tactile feel to it. I also appreciate the fact that the phone number of customer support is clearly written on the back of the unit. What a great idea! A few quick instructions are also written on the back on the clip. The clip, by the way, is a really good one. Very durable.
There is one thing about the timer that I don't like. I often do the PACE program. In that program, each interval is for a different amount of time. There's an exertion time and a rest time, etc. Each exertion and rest time is different. The Gymboss can't be used for this type of timing. I have an interval timer on my watch that does the job nicely. So, I use that. So, at least to me, that's somewhat of a limitation to the Gymboss.
solid steel bar with heavy metal swivel...swivel moves easily and rubber grips are solid hard rubber...I use this with the low pulley for seated row...before this I used a 12" straight bar which put stress on my wrists...this new bar lets me use a more comfortable grip for seated row exercise (Posted on 2012-09-27)
