Download a trial version of the Mobile Interval Training Timer for free and use it today
You run. And you look at your watch. Or you box. And you look at your watch. You do Tabata. And – well, you get the picture.
I’m an amateur boxer, so I’ve done it too. Looking at my watch to get the intervals right.
Problem is, I couldn’t pay enough attention to my workout. It was driving me crazy.
I did see some watches on line that had interval training timers, but they cost $50, $60, even $80 or so! And I’ve heard they don’t even work well.
Besides that, they only allow you to enter one time for each interval – a rest interval and a work out interval. I like to use multiple intervals within one workout.
I haven’t seen a single interval training timer that can do that.
A Practical, Affordable Solution
Luckily, I’m not just a boxer. I’m also kind of a computer nerd. So I invented my own solution:
The Mobile Interval Training Timer (MITT)
It’s not a thing, it’s a computer file. So you can download it to your cell phone or Blackberry right now!
Because it’s a download, it’s:
- Much more affordable than those watches
- There’s no shipping cost
- It doesn’t need batteries
- You can download it and use it today
- Best of all, you can download the trial version for free and try before you buy
So in a lot of ways, it keeps more of your hard-earned money in your pocket.
This Interval Training Timer Makes Workouts Easier and More Effective
I don’t want to brag, but this timer has some great features:
- You can preset several different workouts. For each one, you set the delay time, workout time, rest time, and maximum number of rounds (see Timer Screen). So there’s no need to re-set the timer for each workout. In fact, it comes with six presets included, which you can completely customize (see Presets Screen).
|Timer screen||Presets screen|
- You can set the delay time, workout time, and rest time to any setting from 1 second to 99 minutes, 59 seconds. You can set the maximum number of rounds to between 1 and 99.
- It’s easy to read the big numbers (see Number Display screen). This is great if you need to set your phone at a distance and would like to see it while you work out.

- You can set it to vibrate or choose one of four different sounds: Gong, Chinese gong, Tingsha, or Beep* (see Sound Settings screens).

- No need to remember to bring anything to else to the gym – your cell phone is always with you.
You Can Add More than One Interval to One Workout
For example, you could set one workout as follows:
5-minute workout, 2-minute rest; 5-minute workout, 2-minute rest;
8-minute workout, 4-minute rest; 8-minute workout, 4-minute rest;
6-minute workout, 3-minute rest.
This is especially good for high-intensity interval training (HIIT).
It’s also helpful if you run each morning. You’ll want to split your run into 3 phases: warm up, usual run and cool down. Running too fast immediately after waking up is bad for your heart. Slowing your pace during the cool down protects your heart and muscles. MITT let’s you time the perfect morning run.
I have a couple of reasons for needing multiple intervals. For instance, my first exercise in the boxing gym is rope skipping. Usually it lasts 10 to 20 minutes and consists of two phases:
The first phase is warming up. At this phase I switch long, normal intensity intervals with short, high intensity intervals. For example, 3 minutes for normal intensity, 15 seconds for high intensity.
Warming up is very important, to help prevent muscle kinks or sprained ligaments. The first phase lasts for 3 rounds.
After that I start the second phase. Here normal intensity intervals are much shorter, while high intensity intervals are the same. I need the second phase to start sweating. If my timer can only time one set of intervals, I’ll need to stop jumping and reset the timer.
I also use several intervals for yoga. Yoga practice consists of changing asanas, or positions. I hold each asana for different length of time, varying from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. I have several pre-programmed presets, which consists of several asanas.
I don’t like to think about time when I’m doing yoga, so the timer softly tells me it’s time to change my asana. Before I added this feature to my timer, I needed to change intervals manually or not use the timer at all, relying on the wall clock instead.
Here’s What People Are Saying after Using the MITT
“It’s a perfect timer for interval training. The alarms are loud enough and I like that it times the rest interval. That’s where I often get tripped up because I rest and get distracted and my rest ends up lasting too long.”
“Easy to use; perfect tool for any martial artist whose training routine consists of different intervals. No similar tool exists. Full screen and big numbers really rock.”
“I use this in archery competition training shooting. In archery there’s 20 seconds to starting time and then 2 minutes to shoot the three arrows, so this works really well as a personal training device in this sport! I also use it as a stretching helper.”
