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.
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!

challenges are a must. i put together a monthly challenge and leaderboard which clients love but its a lot of work for me. Having it as part og trainerize would be amazing

Virtuagym has a challenge feature and though it is pretty poorly done it does at least give some framework to your developers. The have it set with a leader board so you have some friendly competition. You already have the group messages so now if you can work that in with challenges that would be awesome!

Definitely need this! We have partner training as well that share workouts.

This would be an awesome feature! I have numerous clients who exercise with a partner, or would like to 'group' online train. I love the new group messaging feature but this would take it to the next level!!
this would be amazing, plus individual badges of achievement (consecutive days exercise, sticking with the programme etc) so the other group members could see and comment. This would be just the best addition to trainerize!
Any updates on this Trainerize?
Kirsten Willis commented
Exactly what I'm looking for!
Much needed! Please consider adding ASAP;) Small group challenges have a huge impact.

I need this desperately!
Johan Palsson commented
This is important for me as well, is there an update on this?
I need to be able to copy a workout template, or training plan to a group of people without having to type each individual name. I'm getting too many clients now that does the same plan that I can't remember them all individually every time.
I want to copy training plan to group "5.30 Crew" instead of copy to "John Smith", "Bob Jones"....
Kendra Gail Beelen commented
That would be so helpful. Please let me know if this happens. I lead mainly group programs and have been looking for a way to not have to load up multiple plans, for people in the group to have an united calendar, maybe even a group chat option and ask work off of the same plan.

this is the ONLY thing missing for me from Trainerize. I have a large group coaching program and it's growing exponentially. I need a group function NOW so that I can stay with TRAinerize and not have to use another program. TICK TOCK GUYS!!!

Such a shame we haven't heard more being mentioned about this aspect being developed. I know their team were looking into it and I was asked for a conversation but haven't heard anything since. With the PT apps industry growing every SINGLE day, it's a shame we don't seem the see Trainerize taking enough action to stay ahead of the competitors. I have another platform lined up that allows group changes and to add workouts simply to a whole group of clients in a few clicks. I'm eager to see if the Trainerize team are taking action on this before we have to inevitably move our account after 2 years.

If clients could see everyone else's tracked numbers, within the group that would be SO motivating.
If they could chat or even comment on the workout, with avatars, in a social way, that would make Trainerize the single best training app out there.
A message to the development team: listen to the coaches guys! I haven't seen anyone asking for a Trainerize Video Storage solution ever in the forums! What are you working on? Based on what? Let us know.

But this is already possible? Multiple clients can share the same plans and calendar.
If you have made a training plan for just one client for 30 days, with different workouts, planned progression and so on... then you can just copy this to another client. Or even many clients at the same time as long as their calendars are open.
Or do you mean like a "real time" virtual training session where a group gets at it at the same time? :)

Build programs and add teams EG sport teams assign workouts to groups
Have categories under the workouts templates eg function
Tom Blaney commented
Do it. Would make lower tiers easier to schedule. Or can set up xxday challenges real simple
Groups is such a basic thing. Seems like this has been asked about for years...
Nicole Simonin commented
A way to have clients see what everyone else is doing in the challenge. Possibly a way they can chat to each other to motivate each other....Easy way for trainer to tally whatever is required for the challenge. Start and end dates that can be adjusted.Maybe a way the client can share their progress/success during the challenge via social media. I am just starting integrating challenges so I am open to whatever awesomeness you guys typically create ;-)
In addition to many of the great comments here, the ability to have a group "hub" or dashboard would be great. For small groups or for corporate wellness programs, having a page where you can go to see upcoming workouts, helpful/inspiring content, and group chat would be great.
