Re: Muscle Driver "No Limits" Clock

Yeah, it's controlled with a remote, you can start it, stop it, program it, etc from roughly 30 or 40 feet away...

Re: Muscle Driver "No Limits" Clock

Glenn, is it the same remote in the CGB version? I vaguely remember it being a generic remote with a lot of unused buttons, cheap looking, etc. Just wondering if the new clock has a custom remote that is a bit more streamlined.

Re: Muscle Driver "No Limits" Clock

The No Limits timer has a remote made specifically for the timer. It is not the same remote used for the CGB timer. All of the buttons on the No Limits timer are utilized.

Re: Muscle Driver "No Limits" Clock

I ordered the Clock Gone Bad when it first came out and immediately sent it back. Mine was defective. I did not want to exchange it for another because I was worried it would burn the building down - the instructions said that it was not recommended to leave it plugged in. For something designed to serve as a timer and a clock, this seemed ridiculous and indicated it was not well made.

I'm considering ordering the new No Limits Clock. Does it have the same caution in the instructions? My guess is they may have worked out the kinks in developing the new product. Otherwise, maybe all I need is a warranty beyond the 30 day guarantee they offer on MD products.

Anthony, honestly, I never had a CGB timer, but, the thumbnail that Eric put up of the new one is accurate, just like the one we have at our gym. I looked it over, and cant find a button that does not have a purpose. I also tested the distance this morning, I stood at the back of the gym which is 40 yards from the clock, and had to only take about 5 steps forward for the remote to start working, so my earlier guess of 30 to 40 feet was not accurate. Our remote works fro 30+ yards.

I am not really that big on a lot of equipment that people buy, hell, honestly some of the stuff that we sell I would never buy. A good bar, good bumpers, a pair of squat stands, a platform, and maybe a couple of sets of Kettlebells and I am pretty happy. But, I can tell you, if I had a garage gym, I would have this clock. Other than things that you can actually pick up and put over your head, this is about the most useful thing that I have seen for a gym. You have NOT seen me on here recommending much in terms of equipment outside of trying to advise people on what bar to get, but, I would recommend this clock.

And with that...it's on *this* former skeptic's "to-buy" list.

Re: Muscle Driver "No Limits" Clock

Really? After all the hype leading up to the release of the Clock Gone Bad I was quite disappointed in it's one dimensional operation. The lack of a custom programmable interval timer was surprising, considering the simplicity of the technology.

So now for another $300 I can actually have the features that should have been part of the original Clock Gone Bad? I for one feel duped!

Re: Muscle Driver "No Limits" Clock

I am really sorry you feel that way. I can assure you that no one tried to "dupe" anyone.

I don't think our clock is unique in the situation of subsequent models being improvements over earlier models. I think that describes lots and lots of products. I bet at some point there will be a 3rd model which will be an improvement over the present one. Of course I am not sure of this, but it seems to be the way things generally go...

Re: Muscle Driver "No Limits" Clock

I refused for the longest time to get a clock for our gym, but now that I have the "No Limit" clock - I love it. The two color indeed is cool - makes me want to program more intervals just to see the blue!

Very cool piece!

I want to know more about this hypnotizing display!
