WorkOutTimer is a free workout timer software that you can use to time your workouts, training and even other forms of exercise. The program is originally designed with boxers in mind but could prove useful in many other areas. The program is set to countdown for two minutes through which you should be exercising and one minute for resting.

How to time Workouts?
The program is very portable and requires no installation. On launching WorkOutTimer, it opens a user interface which fills the whole screen with the timer displayed in large, red numbers. The program is unable to fully display the current round number which I think has something to do with the screen resolution available for the review.
To start the timer, click the ” >” button-I don’t have the slightest idea why this was used as a caption to the button. The timer begins to run down immediately. To pause the timer, click the Pause button and click in again to continue. You can add or reduce the timer by using the up and down buttons on alternate sides to change minutes and seconds respectively. To reset the timer, use the Rz button. By default, the program runs on Work mode which has a timer running for two minutes. You can use the Cool button to switch to Cool mode which offers you a chance to relax for a minute. Click the Work button to revert back to work mode.
The timer clearly indicates the current round and can do as many rounds as you wish. Every time the timer elapses, it starts all over again. To reset rounds click on the RzR button.
- Simple timer.
- Customizable timer.
- The program develops issues when running hardware on high resolution.
- Poor captioning of buttons.
WorkOutTimer works perfectly as a lightweight workout timer and the resolution issues will not be a problem for many users.
