    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!

  2. Disable messaging.

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

  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. Injury or important notes flagging

  6. 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.

  7. Allow to upload documents (PDF, Word, etc) to our clients profile

    It would be nice to be able to share with my clients all sort of documents (evaluations sheets, progress stats, etc).

    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:

  8. 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.

  9. Allow us to create a customized cardio workout like treadmill intervals

    I want to put a note in the cardio section with specific times and speeds for an interval workout on the treadmill. There's nowhere to do that and so now I have to email my client with the instructions, which she will have to print out or save elsewhere on her phone when at the gym. A

    Hi everyone,

    Have you tried using the interval workout feature?

    Just drop in various running blocks with rest blocks in between.

    You can set the work times and set any speed or zone targets.

    Best of all, the client will have the guided timer to go through the workout.

  10. Schedule Messages

    Being able to schedule messages in Trainerize would be game changer. Ideally, it would be similar to email scheduling where we can send to people with different tags. This would help us save time if we go out of town, want to systemize our workflow, save employee cost, improve client experience and so forth. Any unread messages from clients would have to stay marked as unread and having the ability to organize messages to unread at the top would be nice too (like gmail).

  11. Give me a page on which to type random notes about each client.

    I need a place to keep notes about each client. I currently have to do this on paper. It would make life a lot easier if I could keep those notes in each client’s Trainerize account.

  12. Allow for group messaging

    It would be great to be able to create a group message with all of your clients so that they can cheer each other on, communicate back and forth, and see what other people are struggling with (currently using GroupMe for this since the messages only go through separately to large numbers of clients)

  13. 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.

    Hi everyone,

    This is now currently possible with Trainerize Pay Beta.

    You can build products and sell them on your Trainerize.me page.

    On purchase, you can also attach various automated actions to either subscribe someone to a program or join a training group.

    More information is here:

    https://www.trainerize.com/blog/update/trainerize-pay-beta-update-whats-new/

    If you do not see the feature, you can drop us an e-mail at help@trainerize.com to turn the feature on for you. Thanks!

    Product Director @ Trainerize

  14. 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:

    Please keep your ideas coming! Thanks!

  15. Allow clients to add pictures to messenger and calendar (food, HR tracker screen shot, workout selfie)

    I would like for clients to have the ability to add photos via instant messenger. Things like meal prep being completed, lunch they ordered at work... really anything you may find useful to hold clients accountable. 
(Video capabilities for form questions would be super cool!)

    I would also like this feature available in the calendar. This can be a useful tool for a screen shot or picture of client food journal or heart rate monitor (watch/app) Right now I stay friends with clients on 'my fitness pal' and 'under armour record' so I can monitor food journal and workout performance.

  16. Optimize for square or round shaped logo not just landscape

    My logo is more of a square or a circle than it is rectangle or landscape. So I have 2 choices. Either really small logo on startup, or stretch it out for landscape which just looks bad.

  18. Allow me to pay additional money to have the app branded for my company. I would pay a hefty amount to have this be "my companies app".

    I would jump at the ability to have this app be custom branded/skinned for my company. Then my customers don't think I'm using an outside service but have developed the app ourselves.

  19. 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:

  20. 20 second rest period feature (helpful for tabata interval workouts)

    I would like to have a 20 second rest period added to the site. This would be very helpful for creating proper intervals training workouts for tabata.
