Coach / Trainer - ABC Trainerize

We are continually upgrading your fitness app with new features based on your feedback. Please add a new idea, or vote on an existing idea. This ensures your ideas don't get lost and always visible and other users can upvote your ideas. The idea forum allows us to keep a pulse check on what our user community as a whole wants.

Why should I vote?
This forum allows us to more accurately prioritize ideas to ensure a system of fairness by executing on improvements needed more urgently by a larger cohort of our user community, in order of voting priority. It offers you transparency into what we're reviewing, starting and have completed.

Vote subscribes you to the idea so when its status changes, you'll get notified. 

When does an idea get picked up?
The higher the votes, the more likely the idea will be completed but there is no fixed formula if an idea will be picked up as it is just one avenue we look at. The idea forum is only one of the many avenues we use to evaluate an idea's feasibility. We also factor in your conversations with our support team, in-app surveys, Facebook beta groups,  complexity of the idea, talks with our inner circle of users and how it fits with the overall vision of the platform.

For example, "Portuguese support" was for the longest time in our top 3. But embarking on that would significantly dent our ability to serve our primary English speaking community effectively.

Thanks!

  1. Modification Video

    I would LOVE a feature where when a client clicks on an exercise, we could include a modification to the suggested exercise.

    So for example, if I have step ups in a client's program, and this doesn't feel accessible to them, there could be a modification video option for a forward lunge.

  2. Video play back speed

    When loading the exercise video to play the demo there is always a lag and I've had feedback from clients that this can be frustrating. Not sure how it would be solved but just giving feedback.

  3. For stretching exercises being able to change the cover photo

    For stretching exercises when I custom upload the video being able to change the cover photo is important. When we create an interval workout the video holds still sometimes in some awkward positions for at least a minute.

    Clients don't want to have to always play the video. A good still image of the static stretch would be enough but at the moment it looks really unprofessional and there is no way I can see to change this.

  4. Progression based on 1RM

    Basically give the trainer the option to set progression spreadsheet based on the clients 1RM.
    For example a client 1RM for deadlift is 200lb and to progress this client the spreadsheet gives the option to set it based on % off 1rm. starting from 70% and slowly progressing this client to 90% of 1 rm for reps.

  5. Exercise Type: Timed (faster/better)

    Exercise Type: Timed (faster/better) for sprints is a good, but it would be drastically better just by adding milliseconds. In sprinting, there's a huge difference between a 10sec 100 meter sprint, and a 10.89sec 100m sprint.

    As is, this option isn't really functional at all for timing sprints. I'd rather athletes not enter a time at all, versus being forced to input the wrong time.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  6. bulk video import

    The youtube integration is a bummer. It is super glitchy and when the client opens the workout, instead of the video playing they have to click on it and watch it and the timer stops all together. My clients need to be able to just open the workout and follow along.

  7. Clients are getting last session's reps/weights and this session's confused

    Some of my clients are getting last and this session's reps/weights/sets confused and repeating last's sessions variables, again and again and again... Having spoken to them, this is because the layout of where the prescribed variables and previous variables are shown in the workout tracker. I would suggest making it clearer as to which is which, through either labels, fonts or a different layout, as this has happened a number of times now.

  8. Enhancing User Experience: Introducing the 'Exit Safety' Feature

    Have you ever been working diligently on Trainerize, only to accidentally click the back button and lose all your progress? It can be frustrating and time-consuming to redo everything. I've come up with a solution that could save us all from these unwanted mishaps.

    I'm suggesting the implementation of an "Are You Sure You Want to Exit?" option. This would appear as a pop-up window whenever we attempt to leave a page with unsaved changes. By having this safety net, we can prevent accidentally losing our hard work and data. This feature could be particularly beneficial when working in the…

  9. Change workouts in master programs within a specific clients program

    We have many clients subscribed to a single master program but each client has their individual needs. We would like the ability to change the workout that is subscribed with their master program, within the individual clients profile.

  10. instead of time based programmes, set amount of cycles through a plan

    Instead of setting a set amount of time/end date for a programme to run

    set a certain amount of cycles to the programme

    for example a client has 4 sessions on their plan and the plan runs until they have completed 4 run throughs of it instead of a 4 week programme

  11. REST NOTIFICATIONS!

    Have a background notification when your rest time is finished.

    Allow this to be push notified if the client is outside of the app.

  12. Better Congruency with Exercise Categories

    The categories don't always make sense with what is displayed and then what the client actually sees.

    For instance: Some "Timed (Longer Better)" exercises like Runner Stretch can only be entered in with reps not time by the trainer, which makes no sense. But then when the client actually enters what they did the option they see is to enter in seconds.

    Another example where things don't line up well is with endurance exercises. While the trainer does get to choose between reps or time for endurance exercises, the client only sees reps regardless. So even though it would make…

  13. Ability to Change Progression for Timed Exercises

    If you create a client a regular workout and have them do an exercise for a certain amount of time, you aren't able to increase the time in the progression spreadsheet unless that exercise is a "cardio" exercise. Obviously you can label the exercise as such but then it adds a ton of extra categories for the client that don't apply to the exercise. You also can't edit exercises from the Trainerize library, so if you are using one of those and want to have the client do it for time, there won't be any way to increase the time…

  14. Auto Fix all intervals/targets/rest periods when designing workouts

    When designing a client's workouts, I'd often like to ensure they have the same targets or rest times for each exercise. Every activity is different, and it would be nice to select all or a few to adjust all at once rather than go individually to change the targets and rest times. It feels like tedious work with a simple solution.

  15. Mass Video Import Option

    Bulk import from YouTube is totally inefficient as now YouTube only lets you upload 15 videos at a time.

    We need a way to efficiently upload and label videos without the tedious click click click wait game.

    Is there a way you could integrate a spread sheet template for this?

  16. Modernise and stream-line the user interface for clients when inputting their reps/sets for their workouts.

    I've used a few training platforms from Truecoach to TrainHeroic prior to returning back to Trainerize, as I like having everything in one place.

    However, I feel that the Trainerize UI for the workouts is a severe let-down of such a great product in comparison (particularly against TrainHeroic). This is due to it looking quite bland due to the design and colours used, as well as it looking overwhelming when you need to input your reps/sets.

    For reference what TrainHeroic does well well is that the program is simple, but sleek with an option to display it as bright/dark and…

  17. Volume Tracking, pleaseeeeee

    Can we please get a way to look at total volume per workout and muscle group instead of just singular exercises?

    This really is crucial for anyone wanting to do a legit workout program and I've seen it asked for many times.

    If this doesn't get figured out I'm going to have to find another app because this is just too big to not have.

  18. Allow clients to see their workout calendar when they log in via computer as it was previously.

    My athlete would pull up his current workout and previous workout on different browsers/screens to input his new weight/rep scheme. Being able to view the workout from the calendar has bee requested by more than one client already.

  20. Turn off stacked program feature

    I'm an online trainer who uses master library programs for all of my clients. Since the stacked program feature has rolled out, my clients now see two programs under the workout tab - their usually master program, as well as "client name's workout", which is completely empty.

    Queue mass confusion about what their program actually is.

    I understand that stacked programs have a use case for many trainers, but this new addition has torpedoed the app for other trainers like me whose clients just want simplicity.

    We need a feature to toggle it on or off, or at least only…
