A highly customizable Android app for Tabata/HIIT practitioners, fitness and sports fans to workout and do their exercises in a guided, automated and timed manner.
Currently, it relies in the concept of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) which allows looping around multiple exercises with fixed rest and workout/training times, like Tabata.
Tabata is a form of HIIT. It initially consisted of one exercise carried out intensively during 20 seconds with 10 seconds of rest after it. This exercise was looped 8 times, giving a total of 4 minutes.
It provides the ability for users to define/plan their own (multiple) workouts/trainings by defining lists of exercises and custom timings.
