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

This would be sooooo very helpful!
I try to put the explanation in the workout description, but I feel like clients need it to be very, very clearly laid out for them.
Some of my workouts include multiple circuits within them. I'd like to be able to label them as needed.
e.g. Warm-Up, Dumbbell Complex(10 reps), Barbell Complex(8 reps), Super-Awesome Core Blast.
This would definitely be helpful. Unfortunately, the only workaround I've come across is to create each block as a separate workout - which is just as much of a pain for the client to maneuver, as repeatedly building full workouts where only one or two blocks are different is for us trainers.
Just like we can save entire workouts, it would be a HUGE time saver to have workout blocks that can be used for the building of workouts.
Workout block 1: Warm-up
Workout block 2: Resistance Training i.e. 5x5 Strength
Workout block 3: Prehab work 3x10
Workout block 4: HIIT or Finisher
All of these could be saved so that we can easily search and add to a workout, instead of always rebuilding everytime we want to make a workout.
This is a big one.
Any further progress on this request?

This would be VERY helpful! I've added notes about which section a movement is in, in the Target section and am training Clients to look there but it is clunky and could be much smoother if exercises could be categorized as Main, Warm-up, Cool Down, Accessories or even custom sections.

Separate components for each workout ie WARM UP , STRENGTH, METABOLIC CONDITIONING with movements under each component and suggested time etc

I’m currently writing a completely separate workout for the warm-ups and it looks messy. I don’t like putting the warm-up right in with the workout (with how it’s currently set) because it makes the workout look way too long and overwhelming.

It would be great to have the ability to assign a catagory title to each section of the workout. Such as Warm-up, Mobility, Primary, Assistive, cool down etc.

This is a fantastic idea. I started off trying to have each block as a separate workout but found that clients were skipping them so now I add them right into their workouts but would love the clear labels or separation.

It would also be incredible if Trainerize included warmups to integrate into our master workouts. This would streamline how users view warming up if it is able to be included in the actual workout builder, not simply in the additional info box where we give our clients instructions.

Would be great to add Garmin watches, fitness rings, samsung and apple fitness watches

Sometimes clients have trouble differentiating blocks of exercises within supersets (even with rest programmed in between). The ability to color code supersets/circuits or label them (Warm-Up, Circuit 1, Circuit 2, Cooldown, etc.) would be very helpful.
I like this idea. I understand you could create a whole separate warm up workout, but having it as a part of the main workout would be easier and less confusing. Then clients know they only have one workout to check off for the day.

Agree with Josh C below. Can add below, but maybe just a tab to show it’s separate to the actual workload .
Also a tab for alternate exercise options that you can input after the workout

I would love it if, within my workout, I can superset some workouts together and title it things such as: mobility, warm up, SAQ, HIIT or anything of the like.

This is how PT distinction does its workout programming. Too bad their interface is not user friendly as yours.
Also, having the ability to copy and paste those sections from one workout to another will make it a feature that let's you create a client program in under 60 sec.

When you want to put together 2 or 3 smaller workouts into one larger it woud be a GREAT TIME SAVER to copy an already existing workout with all the excercises into workout one is creating at the moment .
RUDOLFS GOBNIEKS commented
A must have feature. Working with previous workout design platform where they had this option .. creating wokouts on Trainerize takes a lot more time and patience without this function
add warm up to beginning of workout without counting the exercises as exercises in the workout
