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. Make available a list of all the exercises in the trainerize library to easily find the techniques

    I don't want to spend time scrolling down to check all the library techniques of having to guess the name Trainerize chose for the technique. I want to have a CATALOG to understand how Trainerize chose to classify the exercises and the names assigned by it.

  4. Tidy up exercises and improve selection functionality

    The list of exercises is currently a bit out of control, with inconsistent naming and duplicate entries.

    I would suggest categorising the exercises and creating an organised structure with the following hierarchy:
    - muscle group (legs/arms/torso/etc.)
    - muscle (forearm, bicep, etc.)
    - exercise name (bicep curl, tricep extension, etc.)
    - variations (green machine, cable machine, straight bar, etc.)

    (or similar)
    You should still be able to search terms and these would filter at all levels of the hierarchy, but the results should fit into the categories.

    Obviously a lot of exercises may be part of multiple sub-categories and that's ok,…

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Upload Vertical Videos

    Vertical video uploads are not supported. Add the Ability to Upload Vertical Videos. It's 2022 and vertical videos on phones are how clients view exercises. The videos will be bigger and easier for the clients to see.

  13. Add gardening as activity with calories, estimated intensity and time

    I have some clients who do gardening and don't own a smartwatch to synchronize with TZ, so they never know how to gauge and log their exercise activity.

  14. Be able to edit sets of exercises in interval workouts over the workout schedule

    It would be great to be able to edit the sets of various exercises of interval workouts in the workout schedule. Currently, if I put in 3 sets of 45s, I can edit the 45s but not the number of sets, which is frustrating from a progression perspective.

  15. Be able to edit cardio exercises in workout schedule

    It would be great to be able to edit cardio exercises in the workout schedule after I've made a workout and scheduled it for certain days. Currently, it's not possible and if I put in 2km as part of a workout, that cannot be changed over the schedule.

    Allow trainers to edit or delete Trainerize-provided exercise demo videos from our exercise library without having to hide or show all of them. The ability to replace Trainerize videos with custom videos of ourselves.

  17. Disable client's ability to see the Trainerize Master Library of exercises through substitutions or additions

    Because the clients can see the master library through substitutions or additions, it puts the coaches and clients at risk. Not only can the clients try workouts that the coach did not assign to them and potentially injure themselves, the clients can also create their own workouts and potentially be able to go at it on their own, which defeats the whole purpose of using the app.
