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. Organize Workouts on Client Side (by muscle group or beginner, etc) so they can pick from the dashboard what they want to do

    Ability to set up "folders" (like muscle group, beginner, advanced, travel option etc) to organize workouts that clients can choose from from their dashboard. That way it's up to the client to choose what they'd want to do with what is available to them.

  2. Allow trainers to schedule any workout

    Trainers should be able to schedule any workout that they have built vs. only scheduling workouts that were synced into that clients program. Clients need adjustments to their plan all of the time. The exercise substation is nice, but will not work well if i need to sub for every exercise on the fly.

  3. Option to add cover photo for workouts

    Option to upload a cover photo to workouts, instead of the screenshot of the first exercise.

    This helps make them more easily identifiable within a program, especially if all workouts begin with the same exercise (i.e. all of mine have activation exercises at the beginning, so almost all covers look the same)

  4. Add "pole fitness" and "aerial dance" to activities

    Pole fitness and aerial dance(silks, hoops, and hammocks) are pretty trendy now. Most of the women I met have tried at least once, including my clients. Many of my clients go to pole classes and I'd like them to have the option to document it. Thank you.

  5. Being able to add set variations within the same exercise

    I would love to have the option to add variations of sets within a exercise.

    For example : 3 sets of 12 and the 4 set will be a drop set. On the current design I have to ad the exercise again

  7. Ability for clients to filter workouts on demand by body part or goal.

    I see the new filter for workouts in the workout sections to filter by time and machine type.
    Are there plans to add a filter to this by body part or type of workout?

    If so that would be great, if not, It would make the user experience great to be able to pick a workout based on the area of the body they would want to work on, or based on type of workout.

  8. Show written exercise descriptions within interval workouts

    We have several clients who find it frustrating that they can't access the written exercise descriptions from within an interval workout. We often use multi-exercise workout finishers (e.g. a dumbbell finisher with 5 moves), and the only way for them to see the exercise list is to exit (discard) their workout. It would be great to have the same view as "regular" workouts, where you can tap to see written descriptions of each exercise.

  10. Rate Workout On Enjoyment

    Have the option for clients to rate their workout based on how much they enjoyed it as well as the RPE rating that we currently have. A few clients have said its a 8/10 but satisfying or good fun etc.

  11. See full Heart Rate profile of workout from Apple Watch

    I use HR Training for all of my endurance athletes especially. They are trying to hit a certain percentage of cardio work in different "zones". This would be such a beneficial feature!

  13. Easily accessible progress charts from week to week

    To see a chart from week to week on the progressions from each workout/exercise. It would be easier to program further down the line instead of clicking back and forth to find one singular exercise

  14. Add GPS to cardio activity so distance can be auto-tracked

    When clients go for a walk, run or cycle outside, it would be nice for them to just click 'start workout' and the app records the time (which is already happening) along with the amount of distance they are doing.

    At the moment - I am suggesting they use another app (mapmywalk, etc) but it does put them off using our app as they already have to use a different app for food logging plus zoom.

    I would rather them not need to download another app and have all these features in this one!

  15. A better integration of "Rate of Perceived Exertion" (RPE) within Regular workout design

    A better integration of RPE would include a designated field for trainers to communicate the RPE for each exercise to the client, letting them know how hard this set should feel.

    In addition, I would suggest the inclusion of a field where clients record their "Last Set Rate of Perceived Exertion" (LSRPE) This way trainers can get a more granular picture of how and where clients rate of exertion reaches or approaches failure throughout the workout rather than relying on the single exertion rating at the end of the workout.

    This could also be tied into automation, automatically generating a…

  16. More than 5 Workouts in Training Phases

    Show more than 5 workouts on the page in the Training Phases in a Program. Currently, building a Program from scratch, the 6th workout goes to "page 2" with no way of changing that. Yet several of the pre-built programs have more than 5 workouts on 1 page in the Training Phase.

  17. Ability to show workouts, videos and timer on a TV for small group training like a coach's assistant.

    Be able to connect a TV to a computer or Apple TV and show all the exercise videos, timers on the TV so the class can follow along.

    The TV can act as a coach's assistant, so the coaches can focus on coaching technique.
