We all know the importance of time in the gym. Whether we’re wanting to get a quick workout in before we get to work or move on to the next activity in the day, or be consistent day-to-day with how long we’re spending on each exercise or individual workout. This is where the WOD timer comes in to help with all your tracking needs, as a WOD (workout of the day) timer is portable and easy to take with you and use whilst you’re in the gym.

Becoming even more popular since the pandemic as we resort to home workouts, WOD gives an individual motivation as they can create benchmarks whether this be through the variety of apps which have skyrocketed in popularity. However, the use of WOD timer can take this one step further as it tracks the length of your workout throughout your time at the gym or at home wherever it is you choose to workout. So what is a WOD timer outside of the obvious?

It gives you everything you need to get a great workout of the day as it not only times you as you workout but comes with different time modes (the one from Trainfit comes with over 8 to be precise!) for your next crossfit gym session. Offering more than the standard smartphone app WOD timer as the bold display gives you greater clarity with regards to what stage of a specific set you are in and therefore how long you have left to go. This blog will look into the WOD timer in further detail and how it can help you.

WOD Timer – how can it help you?

This portable WOD timer from Trainfit gives you control over your workout to track your progress throughout your time at the gym or at home or wherever you choose to exercise! Also magnetic, so your WOD timer can stick to the wall and have it easily accessible/in view when you’re working out. It helps when you’re also at the gym during those busier times and maybe feel obligated to not spend too long on one machine/area of the gym, even a short burst whether this be squats or any free weight workouts, having the WOD timer set for a certain time limit can help you keep on top, with its countdown feature and fully controlled by you, you’re in complete control of your workout.

It can also be difficult knowing what workout we want to do on a particular day. Whilst many of us have a routine and a general idea of what muscle groups we want to work when it comes to a day of the week or what we have done previously, getting to the gym and motivating yourself to do it can be difficult especially on those low days. This is where the WOD timer comes in handy, as it has over 8 different workout modes, whether this be interval training for your next crossfit gym session. The different time modes can help you decide the time period to workout for the session you’re doing, and give you the boost that the end is in sight! With its bluetooth controls as well, you have full access from your phone to be flexible with your workout. Plus it is more detailed than the standard WOD timer through your smartphone app as having the timer there gives you greater clarity and stops you from getting distracted to look at your phone when you’re in full flow!
