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!

  2. Allow customers to select among different versions of a workout session - normal, 30-min, 15-min, body weight

    Currently I have a normal workout, a 30-min version, a 15-min version, and a body weight zero equipment version. Most of my clients are busy entrepreneurs and professionals and need additional flexibility when it comes to training to stay consistent. If they go to the gym and can easily select a workout that fits their schedule or even skip the gym and choose the body weight version, that would be a game changer for them (and myslef).

  3. Custom Time Intervals (Interval Workouts)

    Interval App Timer Needs Finer Adjustments

    The current times available jump from 2 min to 5 min to 10 min

    This makes progression for HIIT style training difficult, when attempting to add 10 sec to a work interval, or take 10 sec away from a rest interval.

    For example, 2:10 sec Work, 4:50 sec rest, etc.

    Currently, the only solution is to write the workout as a regular style workout, and have the clients download and use a separate interval timer app, which takes away from the "custom app" experience

  5. During workouts; adding a "comment/ note" sections after each exercise

    When my clients and myself are using Trainerize I explain it as a "digital journal". I think it would be beneficial to add a "notes" or "comments" section after each exercise. For instance if I complete a Bent Over Row and my 3rd set was too light at the bottom of that exercise I could make a note i.e "go heavier next week on 3rd set too light". It could be as easy as where it usually says "+ ADD NEW SET" there could be another option saying "+ADD COMMENT".

  6. When I “start my workout”

    I like to keep track on my apple workout on my watch as well. When I start my workout on my phone through the trainerize app, it automatically stops my workout app. I don’t like it

  8. Auto rep input and previous weight

    I’ve been using trainerize as a couch for 1 year now while I find the app great it’s so Annoying having to enter the reps in every set even though you have already set clients reps in the top when my clients are with me I fill this in and it’s annoying if there was a way that it auto did it based of the recommended rep Range I entered this would be amazing and same for weight

  9. Add text option for notes on each exercise during a workout.

    Add text option in workout tracker for better notes for progression on each exercise, instead of only having the ability to put numbers. For example: heavy band, green band, short box, 24" box etc...

  11. Estimated calories burnt during workout

    Trainerize to calculate based on reps/sets and exercise type how many calories have been burnt during the workout and it add to expenditure automatically. Really useful for achieving specific goals. :)

  14. When you click on a workout from your program, there should be an average rated RPE calculated based on everyone that's completed it

    I feel like this could help trainers decide if certain workouts need to be revised in their program based on eveyone's feedback who has completed it. And you can get a good idea if your wokrouts are on target with your average client.

  15. Fix navigation in master workouts

    Every time I click back on master workouts it goes back to the main menu by name. Even if I filter them by date changed or designed, when I click back it just goes back to default list of workouts sorted by name instead of the previous screen you were on.

  17. drop down menu for sets/ reps

    When in a "workout" there seems to be a lot of "empty/white space". So it seems like the workout is long because of all the wasted space it has around the exercises etc.
    What would be good is if there was a drop down arrow on the exercise that once clicked, drops down the sets/ reps of that given exercise instead of having the sets/ reps already on show.

  19. Add "Readiness" questionnaires for pre-workout.

    Adding the ability to have a "Readiness" questionnaire within the app would be highly useful for those of us who train high level athletes.

    We currently have to use a google form for this purpose, instead of using the app. If we were able to use the app for this purpose, we could streamline our coaching processes.

    Adding this might also entice other Sport science/S&C coaches to the platform

  20. Need a dedicated weight field when creating a workout plan

    Right now, each exercise added to a Workout only has one field for sets and one field for everything else, Weight/resistance, reps, special notes/instructions.

    This is far, far too limiting. Especially in the case of weight/resistance. All of my clients are demanding to know what weight to use, especially because this can vary depending on total reps assigned. They are thrown off when Trainerize shows them previous max weights, which is not always applicable to a given workout. (For example, if we had an in-person session where I figured out their 1RM with them and logged this, it later shows…
