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. Redo your Kettlebell videos

    I've noticed that some of the kettlebell exercises (Kettlebell cleans in particular) in your video library are being improperly performed. Sometimes in a manner that if replicated by a client could cause injury. I know that I can make my own videos and do not need to use the ones provided. However, when providing exercise demonstrations as part of the service said exercises should be demonstrated properly. I feel that Trainerize has an obligation to provide correct exercise demonstrations and by not doing so it hurts your credibility as a "Fitness Platform".

  2. Have a PR/PB tab

    Have a menu button for personal records of any movement and make them searchable. I know that when a workout is currently programmed it shows the recent stats and best overall of the movement but there is not a way to search for a movement from a previous workout.

    All my clients have said I wish I could just search a lift (I.E barbell bent-over row) and see what the most weight I have ever logged is. or have all the info of that exercise like a 3 rep max or most reps done in an unbroken set

  3. Allow different rep ranges within the same exercises

    Allow to edit a certain set within the exercise to change the rep range. This is quite annoying because i have to add the exercise twice to change the rep range.

  4. Custom Exercise Measurements/Types

    Right now we have a few exercise types to choose from. Example:
    - Strength: track REPS and WEIGHT
    - Endurance: track REPS

    But what about when we need to track something else to see progress? Example, pseudo planche pushup. This is an exercise that is progressed by leaning further and further forward to increase resistance. So I would want to track REPS and INCHES.

    Some other examples:
    - incline pushups: track hand height from the ground.
    - incline rows: track hand height from the ground or body angle.
    - step up squats: track height of step
    - resistance band exercises:…

  5. Add "Disc Golf" to the options for cardiovascular activity

    Disc Golf is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. There is an estimated 8-12 million people globally that have played disc golf. I'm requesting that it be added as an option alongside golf, table tennis, and the other sporting activities listed.

  6. Add "Rucking" to the list of cardiovascular activities

    Rucking is becoming increasingly popular as a form of cardiovascular exercise. It would be great to see it added as an option to select for cardio.

  7. Allow for distance customizations based on exercise rather than overall "preferred unit" selections that apply to all.

    I think its common to track running in terms of miles. But if I prescribe rowing, its more of a standard to track that in terms of metres. I want to be able to choose the specific measurement standard on current and also custom exercises without it being an overall selection of my "preferred unit" (metric/imperial). Just let me choose the exact type of measurement for each exercise.

  8. Notes for movements

    in the section for scoring GPS movement assessments, there should be a section for each assessment to include freely taken notes

    there should also be a section with every exercise in a given workout, for any given program, to freely take notes

    This is on top of a whole separate note taking section to keep things organized for specific needs

  9. Steps

    I would like to be able to track steps with Trainerize only without using a 3rd party integration as some clients don't have Fitbit, Apple watch etc, so would be great if Trainerize would have this integrated

  10. Allowing Freestyle Workouts to be saved in clients workout

    When I create a freestyle workout, sometimes I want clients to re do that exact workout. There should be a way you can copy freestyle workout without having to re write the workout.

  17. Not all exercises are reps x lbs. Please add a blank box to notate more flexibly

    Many many sports use body weight/other specific exercises that can't be described as reps x weight. An easy fix is to give trainers the ability to just add a blank box for unique sport notation. E.g, universal notation for hangboard training in climbing is 6x 7:3 (-10) (6 sets of 7 seconds hanging with 3 seconds rest with 10lbs taken off body weight). You are radically reducing your market by limiting functionality for gymnastics, boxing, rock climbing, swimming training and many other sports.

  18. Add "Loaded Carry" as an exercise type

    I would like to see LOADED CARRY added as an exercise type option.

    Exercises that fall into this category are; Farmer carries, suitcase carry, ruck hike, etc.

    The objective here is to transport a load over a distance. Measures to t record that would indicate progress would be;
    1) the load carries
    2) the distance transported
    3) the time to cover the instance (or time under tension/load)

    So, when recording progress for his type of move we need to be able to record and track progress on;
    A) Distance covered
    B) Time under tension
    C) Load

    At this time I…

  19. Add Reps in Reserve (RIR) after every set

    It would be useful to understand how the clients find each exercise / set rather than the workout as a whole. I find the overall rating isn’t a true reflection.
