Ability to label sections or blocks for each workout such as warmup, strength, assistance, skills, mobility, cool down, etc.
Currently there is no distinction between areas/sections of the workout such as warmup, movement prep, strength, assistance, met-con, skills, cool down, mobility/stretching, etc.
It would be great to have the sections labeled or the ability to create a custom area/section.
It would also be great to have templates for each area/section that could be saved and easily placed into the other workouts
Rower @ 5 minutes

I agree with Maya Depaz comment below.
Many of us have standard warm up routines but not the same workouts for people so would be good to be able to build warm up templates.

Has this been solved yet? I can't seem to figure it out on my end...
Maya Depaz commented
I find myself constantly retyping the same warm up, cool down, core section, I think an ability to create the section one time and add it in to a workout would save a ton of time and make building out programs much more efficient

This would be wildly beneficial for anyone who is serious about their programing. You need to be able to split your workout into sections so your clients understands their purpose within a bunch of exercises and can focus on the specific task at hand. Please update.

I often have a set of 4-5 exercises (eg stretching, mobility) that I have clients do at the beginning of every workout. When I create new workouts, I have to go add these to the new workout individually. Could you create a way to have a block of several exercises that I could add to the workout all at once?

Trainerize should allow us to create labels for different parts of the workout. Instead of everything just being together, we should be able to label which part of the workout is the warmup vs. which part of it is the actual training session vs. which part is the cooldown.

It would be very helpful if you were able to name a Circuit!
For example "double kettlebell circuit" "warm up circuit" "strength training circuit"
It would help keep the exercise program more organized!!!

I use TrueCoach with my own coach and the workouts he assigns to me are all separated by each component (warm up, mobility, dynamic movements, workout, cool down etc.) It's aesthetically pleasing and easy to see each component and it saves time by not having to write in the instructions.

Exercise Library, it amazing that we can upload our personal exercises. A feature I’ve seen elsewhere is ability to add a exercise that just demonstrates it for 30 seconds for those that just forgotten what the exercise looks like. And then the ability to swipe along to then watch a more detailed video on how to do the exercise correctly would be a great feature. This could also be build in to where you add your own exercises, when uploading you just have two opens one for a short one and the other for the in-depth demonstration. With a added option for them being able to upload a video to do a form check to that exercise.

This seems to be like a necessity, I'm surprised so many of us have been able to get by without it thus far.
Please do this!!

Ability to "Bundle" groups of exercises together and name them for easier program building

Would LOVE this
Javen Palmer commented
Yes this is a big problem
Coach Dionte commented
Give us the option to make warm up blocks for our clients. All we have is “superset” or “circuit” but my online clients would benefit from a warm up block. Right now, I have to type warmup in the reps block
Marta Palancar-Poveda commented
This would be a huge time saver for me! Some clients like to have warm-ups and/or cool-downs separate from the workout, and it would be fantastic to be able to use them for the rest of the clients who like them included in the workouts, instead of creating them from scratch.
This would be a great feature. I program using templated subsets of workouts. These are stacked together. It looked like the client needs to do multiple sessions in one day. It also messes with the stats regarding compliance etc.. if one day is missed.
This method adds flexibility and personalisation for clients with more tailored programs for periodisation and specific goals.

I have a few consistent warm and cool down sequences (depending on what’s trained in the workout) and I’d like to have a library for those blocks so I can just pull them in. The work around is to copy another workout sometimes I want to copy a workout for its structure and that workout has a different warm up or cool down than I want. This feature would also be helpful for workout segments like supersets or certain favorite circuits. I’ve experiments with other apps that have this feature and it’s really helpful.
Any more updates on when this is going to be available? Such a missed opportunity that True Coach does really well.

When you add in a rest day the client marks it as complete. This counts towards thier monthly goal which makes it looks like they have completed more workouts than they did.
Also, option to in a warm up and cool down in a program.
If you do it separately the calendar shows 3 workouts for the day. When clients complete all 3 it says completed 3 workouts that day.
