What is this app good for? I bought my super-duper sport watch that should be able guide me through my workouts.
Believe it or not, I was in the same boat as you! I used to do competitive white water kayaking and interval training was a part and parcel of my life. Waking up at 5:30am in (European) winter was not much fun; but I was very dedicated to my dream of getting into the national team. My super expensive hi-tech sport watch were supposed to be able to handle all varieties of intervals but to my dismay, it was more of a pain than anything else to uselessly fiddle with the watch only to find out that I cannot set up the pyramid intervals or even intervals requiring various length of work/rest ratio. At that time, I could have only dreamt of something like CrossTimer App that helps you to create any workouts/intervals you need, time it, log it, save to history so you can keep track of you progress. I do not compete on kayak anymore, but my passion for sport of any kind is a lifelong, I am a keen CrossFitter who trains (almost) alone – with the CrossTimer App as my training buddy.

As some of you requested, we will be posting one workout every day for people who do not train in CrossFit affiliate and have only limited access to equipment (chin up bar, set of rings and skipping rope will do). These workouts can be downloaded from our CrossTimer online library so you can start working out in a couple of seconds without too much thinking and fumbling with your phone (let alone the stopwatch). Have fun!!!
You’ve watched the videos on the tutorials page, but you ain’t quite sold yet? You want to hit some buttons before you spend your dollars. Well, search for “CrossTimer Lite” app on your mobile. It’s free, it’s missing some features and you’re limited to only 2 workouts at a time. Ouch. But it should give you an idea if CrossTimer is worth your buck :-).
