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!

  3. Automatically play custom videos (uploaded or imported from YouTube)?

    I chose the Trainerize platform for its ability to be customised for my business, however, when I assign exercises with my own custom videos, the videos do not automatically play as the default Trainerize videos do. There shouldn't be any reason for this - the platform can obviously autoplay videos.

  5. Exercise Flagging by Clients

    Exercise Flagging - When a client wants to change an exercise, he/she can flag the exercise and the trainer sees all flagged exercises for each client in the dashboard so he can easily change or modify the exercises.

    Another example, a client needs additional instructions on a particular exercise so he flags the exercise as "Require more information" or something similar.

    This would make our life as Trainers much easier. At the moment the only option is to have clients leave comments after their workouts, but this means that we have to read every note of each workout. I do…

  6. Being able to delete stock exercises in favor of custom

    Being able to delete or make invisible to clients some of the pre-existing stock exercises. Since the trainer can create their own exercise technique demo videos, many end up being doubled up, which is a waste of scrolling time when designing workouts.

  7. If you Upload an Exercise, Choose the Option to share with All of Trainerize

    If a trainer/owner adds a new exercise from YouTube, there should be a way to make it public to all coaches on Trainerize.
    I understand some trainers wouldn't want to do this if it's their own image, and that's fine, but if it's a generic YouTube video then why not? Think of all the time it would save, instead of every trainer re-inventing the wheel when an exercise isn't already uploaded.

  8. Proper rowing exercise information

    Current rowing notation does not match any data on the majority of devices. They should allow for inputs of:
    Total Time
    Distance (meters)
    Stroke rate
    Time per 500m
    Watts

  9. Add jiu jitsu under Activities

    I am a trainer, and I also do Jiu Jitsu. It is a great exercise/activity. I am able to add it as an activity on another app... the list of possible activities is very small in comparison to others. Jiu Jitsu, martial arts, surfing, there are so many more details options that don't belong under general because that doesn't really help measure progress of other activities outside of the workouts inside the app.

  10. Delete option for interval exercises to have "side" instructions

    There are numerous exercises in the library that alternate sides (e.g. bird dog) that, when added to an interval workout, automatically show "left" and "right" sides. I usually delete one of them, but either "left" or "right" still remains and can't be deleted. Can you please fix this?

  14. Improve Exercise Filters

    In the Workout Builder, when applying more than one exercise filter we should only see results that have all of the filters. Right now we are seeing results that only show one or more filters. Not accurate.

  15. Remove Pop-up when clicking on search bar in exercise library on desktop/laptop

    Please make it possible to turn off the pop-up that appears every time you click in the search window in the exercise library. Once you've seen it once, you don't need to see it again. It becomes super annoying to have to click it off every time you search for a new exercise. It slows things down heaps and blocks exercises on the screen. If there's a way to turn it off, please let me know, otherwise, please remove it as it detracts from the experience.

  17. Exercise Notes

    Recommend a notes section for any exercise when building a workout. This allows the trainer to add modifications, options, and safety tips that the client can use inter-workout.

  18. Increase max interval time from 30 mins

    Can only prescribe runs for a maximum interval time of 30 mins, anything more than 3/4 hours would be great! i work with alot of endurance athletes so they could use the additional time frame!

    This will be an easy fix im sure!

  19. Ability to add an exercise in progression view

    Hi, what i have realised in the short time of purchasing is that the app has one major flaw. That being, if i build a 12 week plan or any length of time, i then schedule the days and periodise the workout for the client.

    then if they for example want an extra exercise on that day, when added it doesnt simply let me enter the stats on the spread sheet, id have to uncheck the full 4 week block and then add the exercise and re do all the numbers.

    this is a huge issue for the app. It…

  20. Ability to duplicate a custom exercise

    I would love the ability to duplicate an exercise demonstration video and then edit it slightly to change the equipment used. Much like how we can copy workouts and are prompted to rename the new workout from "_____ workout name copy"

    Here's why. Lets say I make a glute bridge video. Upload it to a new exercise demo video listing on the app and methodically tag it with muscles used, movement complexity, etc.

    Then duplicate that listing, change one thing like checking 'dumbbell' instead of 'bodyweight' and create a new listing needing a different video for the variation. This way…
