Gymboss Is The Boss Giveaway (CLOSED)


IMG_0697[1]

Are you short on time?  Do you get bored doing the same thing over and over again for hours on end?  Are you trying to get that six pack to show?  Are you trying to burn extra fat, not just lose weight?  Then you sound like a perfect candidate for interval training.  All fitness enthusiasts need to have the right tools to help them meet their goals.  The Gymboss Interval Timer is the perfect tool for interval training.  Especially when you are training alone.

I first learned of Gymboss through Bodyrock.tv many many moons ago in 2009.  The exerciser on that channel would constantly talk about her Gymboss and I realized if I wanted to be able to interval train solo I would need one so I purchased my first one back in 2009.  Fast forward to 2013 and I still use it on a regular basis whether doing intervals with jump rope, push ups and jumping jacks OR walk/jog/sprinting around my neighborhood track – this interval timer helps get the job done.  I haven’t even had to change the battery!  It is reliable, easy to set up…it counts 2 sets of intervals and can even be used as a timer if you change the mode.  They also offer videos on Youtube to help you with orientation and initial set up.  It is really a small yet POWERFUL tool for interval training.

I have attached an amazing infographic on the benefits and different methods of interval training.  Be sure to check it out.  I learned a lot from reading it.
The Complete Guide to Interval Training

300 LIKES On Facebook Page Giveaway!


We are very excited and elated that the Femme Fitale Fit Club Facebook Public Page has received 300 LIKES!  This is a major milestone for us since we just started the page a little over six months ago and it has already attracted individuals who want to join us on this journey of fitness, motivation, encouragement and inspiration!  We feel extremely blessed and honored and want to keep this momentum going…….please join us if you haven’t already!

We do not plan to stop here.  We want to spread the word and continue the positivity to help others dig deep and be inspired to start, continue and maintain a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their loved ones!

Part of a healthy fitness routine is a cardio work.  We all have heard of it and it has been beaten in our heads that it is something we must do in order to maintain a strong heart, lose fat and improve endurance.  One popular form of cardio is called HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training).  The reason I like this is because you can do it just about anywhere, with just about any exercise or equipment.  Treadmill, elliptical, H.S. track, incumbent bike, stepmill, jump rope, push ups, jumping jacks, squats, lunges…the list is ENDLESS!  What you are doing is going at your exercise “HARD” by increasing the intensity to something like trying to outrun a locomotive 🙂 for a set period of time and then slowing things down to recover for another set period of time.

I do interval training on a fairly regular basis and my best tool to make sure I stay in the right zone for the right amount of time is my GYMBOSS!
