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. Ability for Trainers to program "Recommended Substitutes" in the Workout Editor to allow for Equipment Availability/Progressions

    With the world going in and out of lockdowns, equipment availability is ever-changing. Additionally, delivering Group Training Programs, different members may have differing Equipment Availability, Personal Preferences & Levels Of Skill

    The ability to program a primary exercise, with additional options that a trainer can program/recommend as an appropriate variation/substitute... this would work wonders in creating a highly adaptable program for the member's experience

    I currently work around this issue by "Supersetting" exercise options based on equipment availability together for each movement pattern into movement-type categories with written explainers to help provide more information & variety with exercise selection for…

  2. Ability to PAUSE a clients program.

    Need to be able to put a pause on a clients program. Say they are away from 2 weeks on vacation, ability to pause for the 2 weeks (or however long) then start back where they left off when they return.

  3. create and edit master programs in mobile or ipad app

    There isnt a way to create master programs, or a program at all in the app. The app isn’t very user friendly for the trainer

  5. Easier Program Changing

    When you update a program description and change, add or substitute exercises, you have to re-schedule the workout in the calendar and re-do the advanced progressions every time, otherwise the changes never show up.

    Make it so that when you make a change to a program, it is automatically updated without rescheduling and without re-doing the entire advanced progression planner.

  6. Bring back colour coding and repeating events to program scheduler

    With a recent update for Stacking Multiple Programs, Trainerize introduced a new scheduler that depreciated the colour coding and repeating events.
    This idea is to bring back the features from the previous scheduler.

  8. To be able to update a training plan while viewing how they did the previous week

    When programming a new workout you are unable to view how the client did in their previous session at the same time, which makes it harder to currently programme accordingly.

    At the moment I am needing to go through 2 devices one for programming and one to view the workout that they completed the previous week.

  9. Pause Master Program

    Add a PAUSE button for a Master Program so the client can participate in another short term program, like a 28 day Holiday Challenge. Allowing the client to have two programs at a time but one is paused. This allows the client to pick back up where they left off, on the Master Program

  10. Making the Workouts in Trainerize Available to Download

    The workouts created in Trainerize are currently available only on Trainerize. However, when a trainer creates their workouts, they want to have a copy so they may remember and use that workout later or use the workout on people who don't have the app. I believe it would be very beneficial to make the workouts/programs available to download, and they could be downloaded onto a PDF or even an excel sheet of some sort. The workouts to download would not need to include the videos on Trainerize, but merely the sets/reps/times/distances, etc. that may be included.

  11. Track volume per body part.

    Have programs total the number of sets per body part each workout has invidually and how much volume per body part the program has as a whole. This is necessary to calculate how much volume a client is doing base on their training age (beginner/intermediate/advanced).

  12. Training days and rest days macros. Add macros in overall program.

    Being able to prescribe training day macros and rest day macros to a client would be ideal. Also being able to add daily nutrition goals and habits to the overall program would be awesome. Thanks.

  13. Workout section

    When building workouts, sometimes the workout builder randomly shuts down. Very annoying when you’ve spent a considerable amount of time building a plan only to get to the final exercise and for it to then be lost! Glitch needs fixing ASAP. Clients have also mentioned that their activity watches/other apps keep un-syncing to the app randomly.

  15. Availability to give an exercise substitute easily without losing the progression planned

    I cannot change an exercise without having to do all the progression again... If a client need a substitute, I have to edit thee workout, reschedule the workouts the same days and then do all the progression all over again...

  16. Have the option of not having to add a video into a programme

    It would be great if we could just add the notes and not HAVE to also add a video. Or if we could add a video without the option of the reps/sets coming up, just the video explanation.

  17. Make it so we can see other scheduled workouts on the calendar when we are scheduling them. It was a feature previously.

    In the past, it showed different colors for different workouts that had already been scheduled in the calendar. Make it so once I schedule one workout for the month, it shows up on the calendar when I go to schedule the other workouts so I don't end up doubling up workouts on the same day.

  18. Ability to see upcoming training phase to prepare for it.

    As a user, it's frustrating that I can't see my next program until the day it starts.

    Example: It's Saturday and my new program starts on Monday (updated exercises or reps or something). Nothing shows up in my calendar though until Monday :/

    Ideal: It would be great to see the next program that I have available so that I can prep for it. Instead, I have to wait until Monday morning (workout time) and I have to scramble to figure out the new routine in order to get it done in time. I'd prefer to have the next program…

  19. Ability to plan out muscle group volume by sets

    It can be challenging to calculate just how much volume a particular muscle group will receive in a workout and week. It would be great if the app could graph how many sets a particular muscle group will be exposed to in a workout and across the week when planning training programs. It would greatly benefit stimulus/fatigue management. I can't imagine this being too difficult to implement as the exercise library already has the main muscle groups for an exercise recorded; it would just need to calculate total sets per muscle group and graph/table it.

  20. Scrollable Workout, Program etc. Pages instead of multiple shorter pages

    When looking at the Master Libraries or Client's training program you have to navigate through multiple short pages to see all of the items. It would be easier to navigate one long scrolling page.

    Moreover, it is not intuitive that in order to select all of the workouts you have to click the square box and select "select all workouts". The software should be more conservative and easier to navigate.
