  1. add to the trainer version of the mobile app the ability to setup and edit client data including workouts

    I would love to be able to add clients via the mobile app so I DON'T have to get onto a laptop or desktop to create a client profile, add or remove exercises, etc. It takes extra time out of my day to have to go home and sit for 30 minutes to set stuff up when I could just do it in my spare time from my Android on the go! I'd love to have that flexibility and freedom!

    Hi everyone,

    Over the past few mobile app versions, we have ported most of the daily editing functionality for workouts and training plans down to the mobile app.

    For now, advanced functionality like copying training plans will remain on the web.

    Thanks for your great ideas. Please create more new suggestions on how we can help you build your workouts or training plans faster!

    Thanks.

  2. Add the ability to create folders to organize workout templates into

    Add folders to the workout templates section so that workout templates can be organized into folders like 'Fat loss templates', 'Strength training templates' and so on.

  3. 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.

  4. Virtual group training

    Provide a way to add multiple clients to the same session who will share the same training plans and calendar for a certain period of time (i.e. 7 days, 30 days) like what is done for group challenges.

    HI everyone,

    Happy to announce we’ve completed this idea. Thanks for supporting the idea everyone.

    If you notice in your web app, there is an additional section called Programs. you can now subscribe your clients to programs.

    If you wish to do virtual group training (like intakes or bootcamps), you can create a new Training Group and everyone in the group will follow the same program at the same time.

    If you wish to have people start at any time, or subscribe to different programs, you can certainly subscribe them directly to a program, but just put them into a regular Fitness Community group.

    We hope you enjoy this feature.

    Many of you have commented about challenges too. You may wish to vote and leave your comments on this thread for us:

  7. Tabata/Intervals Timer app for cardio workouts

    Hi everyone,

    This feature is now released with Version 3.11 of the mobile app. You can build interval workouts from the web or mobile app now and your clients will have the built-in timer so they have to toggle out to another app anymore.

    We’re definitely working to make the timer better over time so any suggestions and ideas are welcome.

    Some trainers have started another thread here:

    Thanks!

  8. Make a myfitnesspal add-on feature

    to allow for tracking nutrition along with training programs. many apps already sink with myfitnesspal, like fitbit and facebook.

  9. Ability to copy workouts from programs to templates

    I would like the ability to have all my workouts that a I build under the workout templates, regardless of whether I build them out under a custom plan for a client, under workout templates or under the programs feature. Perhaps having a feature where you toggle what "areas" that particular workout is saved to in an effort to make this feature more flexible would be most ideal.

  11. Terms and Conditions

    Add a terms and conditions for clients to agree to or liability form for clients to complete during registration. I have owned a training studio for 10 years and I have my clients fill out a form to that they assume the risk and indemnify myself, my studio or my affiliates.

  12. Add Training Plan Templates

    I can't understand why this isnt already a feature. Workouts can already be created with a template, if the same thing could happen with a training plan without setting up a client and using up one of our client seats that we've paid for. This should be an available feature,
    This would allow trainers to build pre-set training plans to increase workflow. This could work along side workout templates pulling in workout templates to training plans and then saving.

    HI everyone,

    Happy to announce we’ve completed this idea. Thanks for supporting the idea everyone.

    The final form of the idea is called “Programs”. You can group training plans and even import your template clients in as Programs.

    If you notice in your web app, there is an additional section called Programs. you can now subscribe your clients to programs.

    Also, we’ve released the companion feature to this Training Groups. Please read about it below.

    We hope you enjoy this feature.

    Please keep your ideas coming! Thanks!

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your feedback. With the latest upgrade, we’ve now added the option to add up to 4 PDF forms as part of the customizable welcome e-mail.

    You can upload additional onboarding PDFs or welcome kits in this section that will be automatically sent out whenever you add a new client to Trainerize.

    For more information, you can see our help article here:
    http://help.trainerize.com/hc/en-us/articles/217971003-How-do-I-customize-the-Automated-Messages-and-Events-

  14. Allow clients to record workout from previous days in the app.

    if a client misses a day of logging in, they can not go back to check in or track stats the previous workout... The only option in the app is to move that workout to today, so they end up calling me to do it from the desktop version, creating more work for them and me! Please give us a more simple option!

  16. Allow ability to send out automated texts or messages

    My clients prefer texts as the means of communication
    Automated texts would be amazing.
    It would be great to be able to personalize their name with a generic message
    'Hi Sarah'.... Then same motivational message everyone else gets

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your feedback. With the latest upgrade with our new messenger, we’ve now added a complete 14 day onboarding message journey you can automate to increase initial engagement and up your long term client retention.

    Additionally there are many more event-based automated messages like when a client completes their first workout, etc.

    For more information, you can see our help article here:

  17. Allow trainers to 'cue up' the next training plan for a client

    A feature to allow trainers to 'cue up' the next training plan for a client, and specify a date for the new plan to replace the old one. That way when a client's old plan is over, it switches them over to the next training plan without any intervention needed by the trainer.

  18. Allow Syncing With FitBit Devices and other platforms

    Much like clients can already sync their weight with their Withings wifi scale, many users currently own Fitbit Aria wifi scales and it would make sense to allow the same syncing to occur.

    Hi everyone,

    We’ve added Fitbit integration in our last mobile app release. When a client connects their account, we’ll import their past 2 weeks data. Any new data logged going forward will also be imported. We are currently importing body weight, body fat percentage and their resting heart rate.

    We’ll continue improving the integration so please keep your suggestions coming. Let us know how you wish us to evolve with Fitbit.

    Why not take this chance to add the power of your vote to these related ideas if they apply? The more popular an idea, the sooner we start it. Thanks!

  19. bigger business logo on app startup. The 232x60 image is tiny and poor branding for trainers. Could be so much better!

    Personalised branding on the mobile app and iPad app is a great idea. But why so small?

    At the recommended .png size of 232 x 60 the logo looks so small on the screen you can't even make out my brand name. Please please make this bigger. I spent a lot of effort getting a professional logo so I rally want my clients to see a full sized logo on startup rather than this tiny little image!

    The logo is now much larger to accomodate the larger screen phones and tablets so they continue to look sharp on the splash screen.

    You will noticed we are now showing your logo in the menu too as of our mobile app v3.11.

    Sign in and update your logo to the high res version on the web if you haven’t already done so!

    Thanks.

  20. I would love a feature in trainerize to where clients can purchase a program that I've created as an automated thing and do it on their own.

    I would love a feature in trainerize to where clients can purchase a program that I've created as an automated thing and do it on their own. This is so I can generate more income on a passive level for those who need less hands on support. This feature should include automated emailing too.
