Become more body positive, or at least make it an option for those who are!
I would love to see Trainerize become more body positive by not making clients enter their weight and making sure none of the pre-programmed plans have language or focus about/on burning calories and losing weight. I have a weight-neutral practice and am firmly committed to the principles of the Body Positive Fitness Alliance, so I would like the option to click a button to eliminate weight and measurements from my client's experience in Trainerize. I believe it would enhance overall client experience for many people who are alienated from a gym environment and choose to train at home - and highlight the true benefits of exercise, of which weight loss has been proven to be a very small benefit if one at all. Thanks for considering!
I love this idea! I noticed on the consultation form that the "weight" section wasn't optional. Having previously trained people with eating disorders this is almost a necessity for certain clients.

I would also love to see this! I don't do body composition measurements of any sort with my clients. I'd love to have it so it's not prompting them for this info when they use the app.
Requiring weight makes as much as sense as requiring a biceps measurement. Some people care, some do not - everyone has different reasons for working out.
I work with children, as well as adults (also in a weight-neutral practice) so it is imperative that the system I use have an option to remove weight and measurements from the clients portal. I love your system, but cannot use it because of this feature.
Please give trainers the option to remove this feature.
Thank you for listening
