Feature requests, ideas and suggestions

We are continually upgrading Trainerize 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 trainers can upvote your ideas. The idea forum allows us to keep a pulse check on what our trainer 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 trainer 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 trainers and how it fits with the overall vision of Trainerize.

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. 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.

  3. Option to personalise an activity

    Whilst there is a "general" activity option available should your chosen activity not be one of the pre-sets, it would be an enhancement if when choosing "general", you had the possibility of renaming the activity.

  4. Timed Stretches/Mobility Exercises

    Currently we have to use the "rest" timer to time mobility/stretch exercises. A timer should be built in where the rep box is

  7. Results section for load

    Have a results tab on each set for every exercise clients do.
    e.g.

    Set 1: 12 RM (client input result)
    Set 2: 10 RM (client input result)
    Set 3: 8 RM (client input result)

  9. 75 sec rest periods

    I would love to have rest period options between 60 and 90 secs and even between 90 secs and 2 min. My vote is to add in 75 and 105 sec rest periods as options between sets!!

  11. Add "Steady State Cardio" and "HIIT" as cardio options.

    We assign cardio to our clients, but don't want to tell them exactly what movement to do (Elliptical, Walking, Running, etc.) just what TYPE of cardio (Steady State, HIIT, etc.). Right now we do "General" and add a custom target that says "Any steady state" for example, but I hate that it just shows up as the word General.

  15. Flexibility with exercise and workouts

    I need the flexibility to mix and adjust elements of an exercise (Sets/Reps/Time/Weight) and elements of a workout (Regular/Superset/Circuit/Interval) all within a single workout.

    Example -

    Barbell Deadlift 3 x 5 135 lbs.
    Barbell Clean AMRAP for 3 mins @ 95 lbs.
    Push Jerk 10 minutes to establish heavy double
    Ab Crunch 2 x 1 min

  16. The ability to edit an existing workout and change the format from regular workout to interval, etc...

    Ex: I created a workout under circuit, but realized that I wanted to load it under interval so the timer would run automatically.

  17. Alphabetize your exercise library

    It would be useful if the Exercise database were broken up in alphabetical order. If I wanted to find any exercises that started with the letter A I could just click on the "A" tab, and so forth. Right now I'm in the middle of going through our exercise database and whenever I leave the project for awhile and come back, I have to start at the beginning. I have to scroll down, wait for the videos to load, scroll down further, wait for videos, etc., until I get to whatever letter I was on. Not a major issue, but…

  19. Custom Video Filter

    When looking through exercises, we customize a lot of videos so want to search specifically for ours but when we add the filter for “custom exercises only” it still shows some stock videos.

  20. calculate percent body fat from pictures.

    Construct a 3d model from the front side and back pictures. Use that 3D model to measure circumference measurements and input those measurements into a percent body fat meter. Halo app and styku already do similar calculations. Yes, the formulas are not the most accurate but that can be said for several methods, from calipers to bio-impedance. The idea is to make it easier for the clients and there are already photos that are inputted and a place on the app for body measurements to be placed. Just adds a 3D model and an additional formula.
