Quit "Find a Trainer" and trainerize.me
Trainerize.me and the “Find a Trainer” feature, which creates a marketplace for trainers, makes us commodities and forces us to lower our prices to compete with everyone else.
Trainerize used to be a service for trainers, not for clients to compare trainers to many others. It was so different from anything else. It was perfect!
By offering trainerize.me / Find a Trainer, it makes Trainerize like thumbtack.com where people can just search for a trainer in their city online.
Now, we can’t offer an app to our clients. We’re now “just a bunch of trainerize trainers”. What I loved about Trainerize is that it still let our business be independent, unlike someone who is, say, a Beachbody Trainer who works for…BeachBody, not themselves. This makes us uber drivers for training.
It marginalizes what we do and how we can market ourselves. Before this marketplace (trainerize.me / Find a Trainer,), we could advertise our own businesses as being something special and different, a business with online training offered on our websites and the Trainerize app…but this takes the exclusivity and uniqueness of what we had and makes it worth nothing.
This is a radically disappointing change that is going to have catastrophic results to most of your best clients.
Why would anyone get a great trainer when they could get a cheap one?
I would much rather you have invested in more exercise demonstration videos and additional app features than something this.
Closing out this idea as this can already be done in the app.
Simply go to your Settings > Trainerize.me and toggle the switch to off to turn off your list.
