Different "Kinds" of Workouts in One Session
The different kinds of workouts (i.e. regular, circuit and interval) could be beneficial to have the ability to add them within the same session.
The reason for this is because I like to have clients go through somewhat of a warm-up before doing something like a circuit or intervals and it means creating two separate workouts for the same day.

YESSSSS! This is the same thing I was thinking. As it is, I can't use the circuit or interval options because I like to assign a warm up and cool down. Both of those only work if you use the 'regular' option.

How has this not been done, yet? Haha

Totally agree. As it is now, it's easy to get tripped up and boxed in by the rigidity of how the programs can be structured. It would be awesome to have more room to play with incorporating different types of training into the same workout.
For me as a coach, I think it would also make it easier to create the program in the Trainerize website or app, rather than writing it all out by hand first and then copying it over because I'm able to think better without the restrictions of "this is X type of workout."
This needs to be the next thing added on trainerize, mixing combinations of circuits like tabatha and having the option to end with some individual strength training exersices

Yes I agree, I always do a strength component and finish with a circuit.
I love this idea! It's perfect with the type of training style I offer!

The app needs this!!

I add in a HIIT circuit to nearly every workout. It would be awesome to be able to build that in without having to add a separate workout!
This is a must!
This! Especially for conditioning at the end of the workout - having to add additional workouts is a pain!

Adding in a Tabata option too

Agreed. I always include a dynamic warmup, and it would be nice to have a clear differentiator within the same workout, especially for clients that are new to working out. Maybe including the capability to add a "warm-up" section to any workout??
You practically can when you add in super sets, etc. of multiple exercises in... Otherwise, Whats the difference?
I do this all the time and it would be very helpful and it would add a lot of quality to every session
