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. Allow clients to save workouts they tweak for future use.

    I had a client cancel because he couldn't save a workout that he had tweaked on the fly. He liked that he could substitute on the go, but he wanted to be able to access workouts that he himself had done/created. Would be good (especially for advanced clients) to have this capability

    Hi everyone,


    Thanks for coming to the idea forum and adding your vote to this idea.
     
    We’re keeping this set to ‘Not Right Now’, as this isn’t something we have any immediate plans to implement since Trainerize is a trainer driven platform, we do not want to expand the abilities to allow clients to build their own workouts and make it less intuitive for your clients. We want to invest in making the platform simpler and easier for your clients to pick up.

    We appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

  2. Add a master calendar for personal trainers to see all the work from each client on any day rather than having to individually check clients

    It’s be awesome to have a master calendar to see what all clients have scheduled each day and whether or not they complete their tasks that trainers can refer to rather than having to check each client individually to see what they completed or have scheduled for the day.

    Hi everyone,


    Thanks for coming to the idea forum and adding your vote to this idea.

    As trainers typically manage 10-30 clients, and clients might have a workout + 2-3 habits a day to do, a master calendar will quickly become unreadable.

    A better way to review recent activities is to the use the right “Recent Activities” panel to scroll down and review all activities. Does that work for you? Or there are specific use cases we’re missing?

    Similarly, if you are using Trainerize as a sort of booking system, we encourage you to try out the Appointments beta. Please email me back for access.

    We’re keeping this set to ‘Not Right Now’, as:
    - the master calendar doesn’t seem to be a scaleable approach to quickly review client’s workouts
    - can already be done via the Recent Activities panel and .
    - master calendar of trainer’s appointments will be…

  3. Allow trainers to log into the app and track their own workouts.

    PLEASE make the app recognize that we as trainers, actually use the app for our own workouts as well. There is no reason we should have to use a different email account for our training and workouts than we use to log in to access our clients. It allows me to track my own workouts as the trainer, but it doesn’t recognize that I have “logged in” at all. Therefore, when you make new changes we all wanted, like the Apple Watch syncing, it doesn’t show up for us unless we log out completely, log in to our never used…

    We’re keeping this set to ‘Not Right Now’, as this isn’t something we have any immediate plans to implement.

    As Trainerize is really built from day 1 for a client signing in to interact with their trainers and track their fitness.

    However, you can use the Peak Fitness labs app and sign in as a client. This is the app we use to train our team internally but you can sign in with your credentials.

    iOS:
    https://apps.apple.com/us/app/peak-fitness-app/id1117456592

  4. Not inform clients of every simple change. Create a "save" and "publish" changes feature.

    At times a may make 5 to 10 changes over a day. My client then will receive up to 10 emails telling them of the changes. They have informed me this can be annoying for them. Maybe create a "Save" feature and a "publish" feature so client only receives changes once I am ready to release it.

    After careful deliberation, we decided an automated notification system is still the best way going forward.

    Most cloud-based software will send notifications on any edits to content.

    The client is able to turn off this notification on their side if they do not want to keep receiving these notifications.

  5. Allow Clients to Design and Save Freestyle Workouts

    A lot of our programming is accessory work for clients who have existing programs. I want them to be able to use the app and store their progress.

  6. Allow manual tracking of steps without having to sync a device

    I have clients that do not use a smart watch, but wear a pedometer and their step goals are important to them. It would be great if there was a way for them (or me even) to enter their steps manually so that they can see how they are improving over time.

  7. Integrate Trainerize Pay with PayPal Payflow Pro or PayPal Business as the Payment Gateway

    At the moment you can only use Stripe as your payment gateway, but since Stripe does not offer true merchant account services, international payments very often fail.

    To solve this problem, trainers should be able to integrate their PayPal Business account (or PayPal Payflow Pro account) to Trainerize Pay as their default payment gateway.

    PayPal Business and PayPal Payflow Pro offer true, verified merchant account services and therefore would reduce considerably the amount of failed payments business owners face right now.

    Also, clients could use PayPal Express checkout or maybe even PayPal Credit to pay.

  8. Add an SMS reminder service to remind clients to perform habits such as take a multi vitamin (Precision Nutrition Style).

    Hi Guys, just a thought, can you add a "habit/task" reminder into the software. Either by email or txt message. This was I could automate things like "take your multi vitamin today" for many clients on the same phase. Precision Nutrition style.

    Hi everyone,

    You can now use the mobile app to upload quick short videos in-app hosted within Trainerize.

    We believe a video conveys so much more information and provides a better experience for your clients so going forward, we are recommending the video option.

    Thanks.

  12. Add custom fields in body stats

    Allow for the coach to customize the body stats information. Not just measurements of the body but subjective measurements like hunger, fatigue, etc.
    Let us name the "measurement" and customize the range for example: Rate your fatigue from 0-5
    Rate your training intensity 0-5
    etc.

  18. Custom Exercise Management

    We need a better Custom Exercise management. The current system is very bad when you have hundreds of exercises. Having to load 20 at a time, EVERY TIME you update one exercise is horrible and takes forever.

    1. Be able to see ALL exercises without loading 20 at a time
    2. Be able to export the library with ALL information entered into TRZ
    3. Be able to import a csv/excel document with exercises AND all info available for exercises such as youtube url, type and tags.

  19. Add the ability for clients or trainers to upload device data

    I used workoutlog.com as a "client" for a certification I was doing with another trainer. I was able to upload my polar heart rate monitor data (*.hrm file) and it automatically had my heart rate data. I saw it was also available for Garmin, Timex, PowerTap, SRM, and CompuTrainer. Is this something that can be integrated into trainerize?
