Trying to stay committed to a fitness routine is an exercise (pun intended) in constant deal making. You know those compromises you make with yourself. “I swear I will get to my work out later” or “I will double up my sets tomorrow, I don’t have time today.” These agreements always sound sensible, but are rarely kept. WebMD says the number one excuse for not exercising is “I don’t have time.” In the fast pace multitasking world we live in today, it is very easy for one to feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to fit everything in – especially exercising. If only there was a way to get real benefits from shorter exercise periods. I smell a lead in to HIIT training studies.
According to CNN, “a recent study suggests that one minute of vigorous exercise can be just as effective for improving health as 45 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise.” These high intensity sets only last about 10 minutes and show the same results of traditional longer routines. In fact, the American College of Sports Medicine reports that subjects who performed HIIT training burned nearly 10% more calories in the 24-hour period after the workout session compared to those who did steady state cardio. Perfect! Managing and allocating a shorter amount of time for fitness is much easier than trying to fit in a 45 to 60 minute workout.
With this style of training in mind, Datexx took its widely successful TimeCube and created new models for fitness. With no buttons or dials to set, the TimeCube allows you to transition from high intensity to a recovery period without breaking stride. Simply turn the cube to reset or set a new countdown. The Fitness Time Cubes come in two models: the DF-31 with pre-set times of 10, 20, 30 and 60 seconds (great for HIIT training) and the DF-37 with pre-set times of 1, 5, 10, and 15 minutes (for strength training or lower impact cardio). These timers are loud enough to hear over your motivational music and are bright enough so they won’t get lost on the gym floor. The TimeCube is small and lightweight making it easy to throw in your gym bag or bring with you on long weekends, so vacations are no longer a reason to break your routine!
Let the Time Cube help you easily make exercise a regular routine. From cardio to strength building, the Time Cube is the best tool to help you incorporate exercise into your day and manage your workout regimen effortlessly- just turn and burn the calories away!
