gymboss timer

The gymboss timer is a small easy to use timer that I keep in my travel bag and is one of the best pieces of training equipment that I own. I use the gymboss timer whenever I do a timed workout.
You can set the gymboss timer to beep, to vibrate, or to do both when the interval is up.
There’s a dual timer function that allows you to set different work/rest periods, which I use for timed intervals, jump rope, shadowboxing and tabata intervals. It also has a single timer that can be used for general physical preparedness workouts, minute drills, fight gone bad style workouts, or anything where you need to rotate exercises at a set time.
There’s also manual mode, which counts down from a set time – perfect for AMRAP (as many reps as possible) workouts where you’re working for a predetermined time period.
All in all a versatile piece of training equipment I wouldn’t be without. AAA battery included. The gymboss timer is available from

I am going to Thailand in April 2013 and will be training Thai Boxing as a treat for my 50th birthday. I’ve deleted all the old posts so I can concentrate on training for Thailand. I am doing three nights in Bangkok, if you know of a good gym in Bangkok please let me know. The rest of my time in Thailand will be spent at the Bangtao Beach Resort, I already have a gym picked out to train at it’s the Sumalee Boxing Gym.
