iOS Workout Timer App for Personal Trainers and Clients

We recently added the ability for personal trainers and their clients to utilize a timer for Active and Rest periods during workouts in the FitSW iOS App.  So rather than having to use a separate workout timer app, you can use one right in the app.  We have created two ways to use the workout timer:

  1. As a standalone timer in the “Timer” tab.  More info here.

    The stand-alone timer is accessible in the More menu and displays time in big text with a background that indicates Rest Period or Active Period.
  2. As a built-in timer to the workout that can be seen right there on the workout details page.  More Info Below.

We have added an Workout Timer / Exercise Timer built-in to the workout details page. Personal trainers and clients can view their workout and keep tabs on time all on one screen.

In this post we will talk about #2, the built-in timer that is on the Workout Details page.  You can read about the Stand-Alone timer here.  Rather than having to have a separate workout timer app, personal trainers and their clients can use this built-in feature right from the workout page.  This makes it easy to view workouts and keep tabs on time without having to switch back and forth.

Exercise Timer / Workout Timer Features

The workout timer / exercise timer currently allows personal trainers or their clients to do the following:

  • Specify number of sets to run the timer for
  • Set Active Time periods
  • Set Rest Time periods
  • Displays all this information on the workout details page above workout.
  • Audible and visual cues to indicate Active -> Rest and Rest->Active transitions.

We are also looking for feedback on any additional features our users would find valuable so send us a note or post a comment if you have feedback.

How to use the Exercise Timer / Workout Timer

  1. Go to your Workout Details page for the specific workout and then click the button called “Workout Timer”.
