Late last year my year 12 students were developing training programs that required them to develop an understanding of the different training methods and principles. Within these programs, the class completed group circuit training sessions in which I used a stopwatch and whistle to facilitate the work/rest ratios. As this was happening it was obvious that keeping an eye on the stopwatch detracted from my ability to observe the training and render assistance.
With this in mind, I decided that an app that allowed custom workouts to be developed so that a users ‘Music’ could be used to guide them through the workout would be really useful . It would not only free up the need to watch a stopwatch but would also perfectly integrate music into the exercise session, helping to motivate.
Well 3 months later and “MusicWorkout” is finally available for iPod/iPhone and iPad users. MusicWorkout is a unique interval timer that utilises your music to inform you when it’s time to rest and time to work. Perfect for teachers, coaches, trainers or anyone looking to improve their fitness
