  2. Video messaging!!

    Video messaging within the app would be a game changer for rapport and relationship building with the client, save time and eliminate the need to use a separate app for messaging

    Hi all,

    With the new v6 app, you can now record a video message directly from the mobile app, or pick from the camera roll.

    You can also attach a file in the messenger.

    Thanks for supporting this idea. Your vote has been returned to you to revote up another idea.

    One related idea you might be interested in is the ability to send video messages via the web application:

  3. Allow MyFitnessPal to sync with all data (including calorie goals and what they're actually eating).

    Currently, it says clients have a low workout compliance and you can only see macros. This doesn't help with knowing their calorie goals and what they're actually eating. If you could change this then I think a lot of people would be happy as it would be such a useful tool!

    Hi all,

    Happy to announce this has been completed.

  4. FILES / Informational Tab - Upload informational videos, documents etc

    I just want to be able to upload videos or documents (other than exercises) eg: "How to track on MFP", Macros 101, Guide to Supplements, How Fat Loss Works, Which triaining is best for you etc etc.

    Because this is an online coaching platform you want to be able to give as much information to the client as possible.

    A seperate tab on the overview page would be perfect. And allow clients to be able to access the Files whenever they needed information.

  5. Allow videos to be sent from camera roll as attachments in messenger.

    Currently, videos cannot be sent from clients to me or vice versa. This would be a helpful feature so I don't have to toggle back to texting when a video needs to be sent.

    For example, my client needed to send me a video of her home gym, but could not so texted to me.

    Hi everyone,

    You can now schedule messages within the calendar.

    Simply open the calendar of a master program or the calendar within a client’s account.

    You will see the option to schedule up to 3 messages to be sent out at a particular time..

    Thanks for voting up this idea!

  10. Disable messaging.

    Create the ability to manage messaging settings. Specifically, the ability to disable the messaging feature.

  11. Interval Timer: Allow us to enter work/rest times

    The new Interval Timer is awesome! I would like more control over setting the times - specifically, I need it to allow for 60/20, 45/15 and 40/20 work to rest intervals. I don't use Tabatas often, but I'm sure many would appreciate and option for 20/10 as well.

    Hi all,

    In the v5 and v6 apps, you are able to create interval workouts with these various rest periods now, so we’re marking this one as completed and returning your vote to you.

  12. Rowing metrics - Meters & Calories NOT Miles

    When choosing rower for a cardio workout, it should give an option to program the client's workload in both meters and calories. Right now it only allows miles as an option.

  13. Give Clients the option to film video of an exercise for trainer review

    It would be great to give clients the ability to shoot a short clip of them performing an exercise for the trainer or coach to review form and make suggestions. I know for a fact this will give our clients a more personal connection and better retention eliminating the need to seek in house trainers for additional coaching.

  14. Ability to skip forward exercises Interval Training

    When using the track functionality for an Interval Training it would be great to have some more control. I suggest adding forward and backward buttons allowing people to skip or go back exercises

  15. Goals

    Clients buy the vision of what you will do for their bodies not the app itself, as awesome as what it is. Where's the section on goals, with deadlines to achieve these? Goals section please, so so important to know, keep track of and work towards. Auto reminder everyday to go out to the client reminding them of their most important goals and confirming they are achieving results that are helping them get there. Thanks D

  16. In app video recording / photos to add to programs

    Sometimes a video is required that's not available so the ability to record a video in app or add a picture instantly would be good.

    Hi Jamie,

    You should be able to do that now with our latest upgrade within the app. Simply turn on the Video Drive option from your Addons section in the web and you can upload videos in-app now.

  17. Client assessment forms along with a Par-Q

    It would be ideal if trainerize offered automatic emails of assessment forms to those signed up. Right now we have to email them but would be easier if it happened automatically once they logged in. Everything from Par-Q to a dietary record so that we can create a comprehensive client profile to better offer personalized training based on their needs.

  20. With regards to the progression photos, from my point of view, I can only view 1 picture at a time. It would be good if you could put 2-3 pi

    Allow the ability to make a montage with progression photos so that you can directly compare week 1 to latter weeks.
    Also allow it to be shared on social media.
