Interval timer for work out

Is there such a thing as a timer that can be set at intervals for a 'ding' to go off while a playlist is playing, kind of like a minute reminder that doesn't have to be reset?
I'm trying to really simplify my circuit training gear.

Not on the nano-only there's a non-dinging stopwatch.

How to make a free interval timer for your iPod

Yeah, this has been bugging me, too. I finally realized that I could make mp3s of the length I wanted (specifically, 20 seconds and 10 seconds for the Tabata interval), and build those into a playlist for a homemade, free, interval timer. I found a good article on how to make mp3s of any length. Unfortunately I can't post the link, but if you Google "make ringtones geek to live" it should be the first result.

So, for my Tabata timer, I made a playlist that repeats my 10-second and 20-second interval eight times.

If this seems like more trouble than it's worth, don't worry: the entire process of downloading and editing my first two intervals took about five minutes; I expect that future intervals will take less than two to generate. If you happen to be looking for a Tabata timer, feel free to download the mp3s I made. It's not showing on Google yet, so just know that it's a site called Orbitfiles, my name there is scotty022, and the file is called tabata.

Enjoy!

Another Option

You can also use Audacity to put the beeps in at the desired places in a track. It's pretty easy to do--very easy to combine the desired playlist into one long mp3, and easy to put the beeps in.
