[prMac.com] London, UK - Appnoose Ltd today is pleased to announce a one week sale on its Apple staff favorite and Financial Times featured ITGO Interval Trainer GO App for the iPhone, iPod and iPad. Starting Saturday 3rd April, ITGO will be on sale with 80% off at $1.99 from the App Store.
ITGO is a dedicated interval trainer for Apple's portable 'i' devices featuring audio, visual and vibrational alerts (vibration only available on the iPhone) and uniquely features separate programmable fast and slow interval music playlists based on your onboard iPod music, to signify interval changes.
"According to the US National Center for Health Statistics, 66.7 percent of Americans are either overweight or obese and the UK isn't far behind with 61 percent of adults also being classed as overweight or obese by the UK's NHS (National Health Service)", observes Appnoose owner Owen Hunte.
"With a typical 'conservative' Easter egg containing 508 calories or 25% of the daily guideline for calorie intake (based on 2000 calories), it's easy to see how a few Easter eggs could worsen or contribute to the problem" Owen continues.
"Fortunately safe and permanent fatloss is achievable with a healthy, balanced diet and a good exercise regime to help induce a calorie deficit," concludes Owen.
Interval training has been proven to be one of the most effective techniques of cardiovascular exercise and according to the American College of Sports Medicine, more calories are burned in short, high intensity exercise and furthermore interval training may be 'particularly critical for improving cardiac function.'
ITGO'S operation is based around three main screens; the Timer, Settings and Audio screens. Users start by selecting their session workout time, the fast interval duration and the slow/fast interval ratio. Users can also choose to switch the vibration alerts on or off on this page. Next, users can switch to the Audio page to select music from their onboard iPod library for the separate slow and fast playlists. The Audio page also includes options to choose audio prompts, select the playlist play mode and volume settings for the prompts and music.
Finally users switch to the Timer screen and after selecting a warm up and cool down length from zero to 3 minutes, start their workout. ITGO's timers then count down the intervals in circular segments and displays individual numerical timers for the fast and slow intervals and total session duration as well as the currently playing song and provides double vibration alerts at each interval change. The music playlists can be set to shuffle, repeat or just play in order.
