Speed Up Your Next Workout With Interval Training

Are you ready to shake up your workout? How about burn more calories without spending more time exercising? If the answer is ‘Yes’ – try out Interval Training. From beginners to elite athletes, this feature will rev up your workouts, with no additional equipment.

First off, what exactly is Interval Training? To sum it up, Interval Training is alternating bursts of low- to high-intensity exercise workouts, interspersed with rest/recovery periods. The benefits to this type of training are extensive. Besides adding variety to your normal exercise routine, a huge advantage of Interval Training is that it burns more fat during and after these high-intensity intervals, not to mention also burning more calories. To add to that, since you’re working harder for a shorter period of time, Interval Training also lets you get away with shorter workouts, perfect if you’re trying to squeeze in a workout.

However, one aspect of interval training that most people find difficult is keeping track of when to switch to your next interval and how long to perform for. This is where we come in.

Our Interval Training feature does it all for you. As an MVP member, simply Enable Mobile Coaching from the Record Workout screen within the app, select ‘Time Interval,’ and choose how long you want each interval (in minutes), and then select the number of intervals. You also choose how long of a warm up and cool down you’d like. Your total workout is summarized at the top of the screen.

Once you begin this workout, you will receive voice feedback instructing you on what is coming up next, eliminating the need to keep looking down at your phone. Start your workout and start training.
