Coach / Trainer - 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. Remove estimated workout time (or make it optional)

    Estimated workout time is inaccurate (too short) 99% of the time. Clients are constantly messaging us, wondering if they should’ve done their workouts in half the time — or less. It adds an unnecessary layer of pressure for folks who are already feeling anxious about starting a new program. Please remove, or at least make it optional.

  3. In-App programmable "reminders"

    We need an option to customize in-app notifications.

    Example: 10am reminder to log breakfast, 1pm complete 30 minute walk.

    Clients are using us as accountability coaches but being able to automate this process would be fantastic, allowing us to spend more time engaging with more clients.

  4. Schedule tasks/habits or activities for specific times of the day

    It would be nice to be able to schedule reminders for different tasks, habits or activities for different times of the day. This is a feature I've seen in PT Distinction and it's actually a feature used by many Calendar Apps.

    At the moment, in Trainerize you can only schedule Private Messages for different times of the day. All other stuff on a client's calendar: Habits, Workout, Cardio, Photos and Body Stats only have a daily reminder which is set for a particular time of the day (Default is 8AM I think and only the clients can change this daily…

  5. Put notes on calendar

    It would be helpful if I, as a client, could put notes in on the calendar to, for example, mark events that could limit my ability to work out (travel, work, etc).

  6. plate calculator

    An in app calculator for loading plates would be awesome! A lot of clients don't have a grasp on what plates to load to = the weight programmed. For example say an exercise was set for 185 lbs ---- it would inform clients "45 lbs plate and a 25 lbs plate" would = that. So much time is wasted from their workouts trying to do the mental math would benefit them greatly.

  7. Ability to turn off Trainerize's app walk through video

    Not all businesses provide services that the Trainerize app walk through video demonstrates, therefore, it would be nice to have the ability to turn this video off and/or provide our own.

  8. Tracking progress and Tracking weekly average weight

    You guys are doing a great job and I know people have said it before.

    BUT

    1. You NEED to have a weekly average weight tracker for weight loss when it comes to doing check ins. It's a fundamental and will get you more potential customers.

    2.TRacking weight performance for check ins is too tedious there needs to be a better way. And if you are able to incorporate some check flag when reps are not matched. Would be great.

    1. A total volume for work done would also be perfect.

  9. SCHEDULE EDIT : THIS & ALL FOLLOWING EVENTS !

    SCHEDULE EDIT : THIS & ALL FOLLOWING EVENTS !

    We really need to be able to SCHEDULE EDIT (appointments, workouts, auto messages, habits, etc) for THIS EVENT & ALL FOLLOW EVENTS.

    If we schedule 12 weeks out we should not need to edit week by week. This is a basic calendar function that would save so much hassle and lost time for us busy people !

    Thank you many times

  11. Add ability to program workouts from app

    Add ability to program workouts from app.

    Currently you can manage exercises but you cannot create a workout in the app, and as an online business owner that can be a barrier

  12. A small/minor addition, but adding a pronouns feature in signup.

    I work with a couple non-bianary and trans clients, so getting their pronouns right is a huge thing. I have them in my consultation notes, but having it on app would help too.

  13. Cast to TV in landscape format

  14. Education tab

    It would be a complete game changer if there was a tab for educational purposes. I do a lot of education and videos explaining things regarding the clients' nutrition and training. For now I have to use a separate platform for them to access the "learning course" and watch the educational content. It would be awesome if Trainerize had an "Education" tab where we can upload educational videos where clients can access the library of content at any time and that we can continue adding to so that clients are continuing to learn during their journey with us.

  16. Ability for clients to pick exercises out of a group of options

    Some clients get more out of a workout when they can pick what exercises they are 'feeling' instead of just following the plan. What I propose is the trainer creates a group of options to hit one muscle group and then the client can pick one for that day or training phase.

    The trainer will dictate the big lifts for the day but accessories can be left up to the client or provide 'free time' where the client can pick what they want to work.

  17. Easy to find uploaded files in app

    Clients can't find uploaded files in groups easily. Need easy access to group files. Example; challenge group I have, I want to upload PDFs for ALL members to the group. Not individually. I sent them via the group message and now they all have to scroll through to try and locate. Solution; group files easy access.

  18. Secure app with Face ID or password option

    A client suggested to have the app secured with password or Face ID unlock as an option for Apple users. Some clients are sensitive to who could see their biometrics if phone is lost or stolen.

  19. Textbox for notes.

    Not sure if anyone else needs this, but just a simple text box next to the exercises so that client/trainer can input any notes pertaining to that particular exercise would be quite useful for me. This would also be useful if it can be displayed along the 'previous sets and weights' section when in the workout screen.

  20. When Upgrading Plan, Show Total Amount that is Being Billed for Pro-rated Amount

    When you go to upgrade your plan to a higher plan, it will not show the total pro-rated amount that will be billed until after purchasing it.

    It would be ideal to see this before accepting the upgrade/being billed.
