About the bird
Timebirds was born in Melbourne, Australia but it has taken influence from all corners of the globe. We’ve trained with countless fitness communities and gyms around the world and learnt so much from human generosity.
Why are we called Timebirds? It’s a fair question. For us, it’s a symbol of freedom, a reminder that the greatest limits we place on ourselves are our own. Whatever your fitness passion we want you to rise above any doubts, fears or limits.We have a dream to see our timers perched on gym rigs. park benches, garages and workout environments around the world, inspiring all sorts of athletes to find that extra second within themselves. Time has no bias, we all have to earn it equally.
As dedicated fitness enthusiasts ourselves, We believe that what gets measured, gets done, and found it difficult to stay as accountable when in our home gym, hotel gyms, or training outside as we were when connected to the wall timer at our regular gym. We tried watches, which proved difficult whenever we needed two hands; phones, which resulted in cracked screens, phone call distractions, and any number of expletives as phones went to sleep just at the wrong moment. None quite hit the spot, and the more we talked to other athletes, gym owners, and personal trainers, we realised we weren’t alone - and, just like that, the concept of Timebirds, a purpose-built, personal workout timer was born.
Our purpose-built design philosophy.
Athletes of all kinds are built for unique attributes, some for great strength, some for speed and agility and others for amazing endurance. They train for a purpose and just like them we believe design is best when it is purpose-built. So while there are many great timers on the market, our philosophy is to design for specific workout environments to help athletes get the most out of every workout.
