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. Please allow appointments to be booked for an open ended period

    I have clients I have been training for 5 years and having to re-book my permanent clients every 15 weeks or so is a hassle

  2. Adding “personal blocks” so that I can see when I am unavailable (group ex, personal, etc) when using the appointments feature to schedule.

    I use my trainerize app mostly for clients that I see in person through my gym as well as virtual. I have been using the appointments tab to schedule with my in personal clients, most times as we are wrapping up a session. Working full time at the gym, I have other appointments that I need to schedule around like teaching group exercise or meetings. It would be awesome to be able to add those other appointments on the trainerize calendar so that I am not switching inbetween calendars while trying to also finish with a client.

  3. Allow clients to self-book 60-minute appointments at both full-hour and half-hour marks

    Currently, 60-minute appointments can only be booked at the hour mark (11:00, 12:00, 1:00, etc) unless either one of the following is applied:

    1. A 30-minute appointment is booked beforehand
    2. If trainer availability starts on a half-hour mark (9:30, 10:30, etc)

    However, if one of the following above is applied clients will only be able to book 60-minute appointments on half-hour marks for the rest of the day.

    It would be most convenient if it could be possible for clients to freely book 60-minute appointments on both the full-hour and half-hour mark by default

  5. Include full gym management features with class booking that tracks trainer commission payout

    Ability to replace my gym scheduling system completely so I have one app. I do the ability to track commission payouts based on class attendance.

    Also, include ability to gate certain classes for certain membership types.

  6. Set Appointment Availability per Client

    Create appointment availability windows on a per client basis. So if a specific client would like to be able to book on Mondays at 6PM, block that time from other clients.

  9. Custom Descritpions for Vacation / Off days

    I would LOVE to be able to make a custom description for each Off-day / vacation date series that is set up so I know what it is when I survey my list. Right now each item says "Vacation".

  10. Allow purchasing of single appointment types as well as session packs

    Right now, it appears that I can only develop one session pack per appointment type, but I would like clients to be able to purchase just one single appointment when they need as well. Also, I would like to be able to create multiple session packages

  11. Reports by Appointment Type

    Running reports by Appointment Type by Client. ( how many appts client a has or has had) Appointment Type Count (how many group training appts), Appointment by Month., Appointment Type by Trainer by Client.
    This will allow business to review past time spent. This can also be used to measure if a new coach is needed for gyms
    This will allow coaches and business to

  12. Client to be able to choose their trainer

    In the appointments section where the client can now book online, it would be nice to allow the client choose their trainer, rather than it only being the assigned one.

    This would be an absolute game changer for our business.

  13. Session tracking without Trainerize Pay

    Have the ability to add-on an "appointment bundle" of sessions on the clients training phase. Track inside TZ each appointment from that add-on "appointment bundle." Example: Jane Doe signed up for 6 months of online coaching and a 20-session add-on. Each appointment in TZ is marked 1/20, 2/20, 18/20, etc as Jane uses up her sessions. She sees it. Coach sees it. So if Jane has 4 months remaining in her training phase, she and the coach both know there's no more sessions remaining after appointment 20/20. No confusion.

  14. Add to and delete multiple future appointments in coaches schedule

    When editing on the coaches appointments. A selection to do the same change to future appointments.
    Or to delete the same upcoming appointments.

    You are only able to do one at a time for any editing done to appointments

  15. Main Calendar View Change

    When I create an appointment in the main calendar, I want to see the Client's name instead of the appointment type.
    Details such as the type, length, and time of the appointment should appear when the cursor is at the top.
    It is currently very difficult to find customers.
    otherwise
    if search option available - might be useful too.
    But the current calendar view doesn't help

  16. Allow 1 on 1 appointments to show which session pack # the client is on.

    It would be handy to see the "session number" on the appointment in the Calendar. When appointments are mass-scheduled, say 12 at a time, the client can easily miss a notice for a session. The trainer then has to keep a tally of sessions owed and it can be difficult when they're not labeled. Some long time clients have many sessions and reoccurring session packs so things can get confusing.

    It would also be good to check for a client how many sessions they have left without having to go to the calendar and count.

  17. One Appointment Type that can be in-person or virtual

    I would like the ability to add in-person OR virtual appointments to the same product, and let the client or trainer choose upon purchase which version of appointment that will apply to them.

  18. Improve the workout counter in the calendar

    If you notice in the calendar, the workout counter in the top left is inaccurate. It will count your workout in one month and then when you go to another month, it ADDS the previous month's workout count in the current month's count. So you ultimately end up with a number of workouts completed unrepresentative of what is current. This should be fixed to better reflect what has been done in the month you're viewing.

  19. Final appointment reminder

    Currently can book up to 16 appointments out. Would be great to have a reminder on the final appointment for the coach to schedule additional appointments. Sometimes it's easy to get into a routine with appointments and lose track of how many are left in the calendar and it would save time to just get a notification about final appointment in calendar.

  20. Allow for an option to add a post appointment time/break following an appointment.

    Allow for an option to add a post-appointment time that prevents a client from booking in an appointment immediately after a previous appointment.

    This can be technically already be done by lengthening the actual appointment type, but the issue is this then shows an incorrect appointment length for the client. This is why a built-in or difference in displayed vs actual appointment time is important.

    So for example, a client will book and see a 60 minute session, but the actual scheduled time will be 75 minutes (allowing for 15 minutes of charting, programming, note taking, etc after the appointment).
