Ability for Trainers to program "Recommended Substitutes" in the Workout Editor to allow for Equipment Availability/Progressions
With the world going in and out of lockdowns, equipment availability is ever-changing. Additionally, delivering Group Training Programs, different members may have differing Equipment Availability, Personal Preferences & Levels Of Skill
The ability to program a primary exercise, with additional options that a trainer can program/recommend as an appropriate variation/substitute... this would work wonders in creating a highly adaptable program for the member's experience
I currently work around this issue by "Supersetting" exercise options based on equipment availability together for each movement pattern into movement-type categories with written explainers to help provide more information & variety with exercise selection for group coaching
My members then have to manually edit the workouts each session to remove the variations they're not doing... which is far from ideal and requires me to program dozens of exercises into the editor, which looks a little messy.
Being able to simply have a button to press that can easily swap between the primary exercise & recommended substitutes (with their own exercise notes) would be an absolute game-changer for an adaptable programming experience
VOTE FOR THIS, I BLOODY DARE YA 😍🤘🏻

YES I can’t tell you how often a client tells me something is unavailable and the lose hope until I get back to them. If I could just place a sub it’s a win all around

Recommended substitutes is REALLY a great way to have clients who may have to deviate from the created (group or subscribed) program feel welcome. If they have injuries or their body is going through a temporary ailment. This would allow them to feel successful while keeping their progressive momentum

Yes!!! This is crucial!!! I have so many people paying a monthly subscription and the biggest issue is the substitute option in the app library!!!
