Getting Fit with MynaTime and Mac

Posted by at 10:40 am on April 13, 2010

Vaura Inc. is hoping to revolutionize the way people workout with their new product MynaTime, personal workout software for the Macintosh. The MynaTime fitness application offers a new way to exercise as users enjoy the control and freedom of having their own assistant talk them step-by-step through workouts easily created as plain text. MynaTime converts the text to voice and speaks instructions in real time during a workout, all set to the users favorite music, with Apple’s text-to-speech voice, Alex.

From weightlifting and yoga to running and physical therapy, MynaTime is ideal for any activity that can be represented as a series of timed actions. With less than a page of text, most workouts can be expressed in detail, including the sequence of exercises, rest periods, weight, target heart rate and more.

“It’s like having a buddy with a stopwatch working out right next to you. You don’t need to worry about time, counting reps, or how many pounds to use,” explains Joe Klingler, Vaura’s president, who personally uses the software daily for yoga, weight training and pre-ski season workouts.

The MynaTime workout assistant is a useful exercise tool not just for professional athletes and trainers. The software has great potential in the fields of physical therapy, coaching or for those seeking better fitness. Virtually anyone can use MynaTime to build a customized workout, have that workout spoken back, automatically count down each exercise, auto-create an iCal exercise journal, record video for improved form and export workouts to any iPod or iPhone. MynaTime is designed to work with a Macintosh and seamlessly integrate music through iTunes to the users’ computer, iPod or iPhone.

MynaTime is available online through for $34.95 plus shipping. Check out for an online guided tour of how the software works. MynaTime requires Mac OS X version 10.5 and includes sample files illustrating its use for weightlifting, yoga, cycling and physical therapy.
