HIIT interval training timer
by: Giorgio Regni • 10.7K
This app lets you set up your workout, or choose from one of three presets. You can set prep, work, rest, rounds, and cool-down. The app works great, but it would be nice to see some more presets.
The app vibrates and gives an audible cue at the end and start of each interval. It has a built in pedometer, for tracking you workouts, and also lets you save your own custom presets for later use.
There are only three presets - it would be great for people new to HIIT if there were more.

* WHAT’S HIIT ? *
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is a method well known to burn fat in a short & intense workout. And there are many different ways to it : sprinting, crossfit, running, bodyweight workouts, cycling, yoga, stretching, weightlifting, boxing ...
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an enhanced form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 4–30 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning.
This definition comes from wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-intensity_interval_training) where you can find a lot more informations. It explains some very popular program, like the TABATA. HIIT is also a common practice in Crossfit trainings.
* HOW TO USE THE APP ? *
You can use it during all trainings with intervals or other timed repetition
Basically, this is how it works : on the first screen you will set up your workout phases durations (preparation time, work, rest, rounds and cool down) and you will choose your sound.
Then hit “Go !”, work and just follow the sound… or the voice !
You can listen to your own music, just make sure you can still hear the sound.
At the end of the workout, a new feature allows you to share your workout with your friends on Facebook and Twitter @hiit_android
* PHONE PERMISSIONS *
Now automatically pause and resume if a phone call arrives.
This is why PHONE_STATE permissions are required. But the app never collects and stores phone numbers from users phones.
