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. 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.

  2. Exercise Use Stats

    Over the years I have created and uploaded duplicate exercises on accident. I want to delete the duplicate, but I don't know if it is being used in one of many workouts and programs that I have created.

    It would be a great feature to know if an exercise is being used in a workout or program.

    I've made this mistake before. Deleting an exercise and inadvertently deleted part of someone's workout without knowing.

  3. Optimize search keywords for workout library

    When I go to search for a specific exercise, majority of the time it does not even remotely pop up first, and I have to scroll to find it anyway. It’s frustrating and time consuming, especially as someone who just started and is still building up their programs on the app. Creating a new exercise from a YT video is basically faster in the long run, because at least you know it’ll pop up first in the future. A little SEO would go a long way.

  5. Different cable exercise for different attachments

    Due to the pandemic, there is an increase in functional trainers which are all pulley based, as well as an increase in at home cable like systems, resistance bands with handles etc. It would be great to see different types of cable attachment workouts like standing row with rope, floor seated close grip pull down, 1 leg up lat pull with cable, rear delt bent over 1 arm reverse flye with cable... cables are amazing and versatile. Other than that this app is amazing!!!!!!!!

  6. merge exercises

    Im sure I am not the only one who has created an exercise more than once with a slightly different name, or used the trainerize exercise and then created my own. The problem with this is that if you ever switch to "the other exercise" you lose the statsfor that exercise and have to start over. It'd be great to have a MERGE option to allow stats to cross over between stats.

  7. MORE AT HOME WORKOUTS

    We are all stuck inside without a gym, most of our clients only have limited equipment. I have looked through every exercise and you guys do not have some very basic exercises that can be done with a band. Lat Pull down tricep push down, the list goes on. We're going to be stuck in this horrible situation for a while until a vaccine is created. You guys have to adapt to at home exercises. I realize that i can just put notes in for the client but so many need a visual, like a said you must adapt like…

  8. Countdown

    Allow a countdown/timer in the set when the client starts the workout

    For example I sometimes have clients to a mix of timed work and reps and it would be nice if when we enter a time for an exercise that there is an automatic countdown like there is for intervals

  12. increase distance amount that can be inputed on cardio exercises by clients

    Hi
    If I schedule a cardio exercise or day as ‘rower’, my clients can input a maximum of 999m rowed. Given some of my clients are training to row across the Atlantic Ocean this isn’t enough. Can this be increased to unlimited? Or have the option to input KM’s? Cheers

  14. Would like to see pregnancy specific exercises

    If possible I'd like to see pregnancy specific exercises ... existing exercise database could be updated to show for example: safe in trimester 1, 2 and/or 3

  17. Sort Exercise Library by video type and whether it has a description

    Add in a sorting or filter feature to quickly find Custom Exercises that:

    • Have no video, have a custom video, or have a linked YouTube video
    • Don't have description text

    Often I will quickly add exercises from YouTube if it is something that I need for a client's plan but haven't filmed yet (and isn't available in the Trainerize Library). I then go back and fill in these exercises with my own custom videos when I have the time, and it would be nice to be able to sort and find these quickly.

    The same applies with Exercise descriptions. Sometimes…

  18. Allow clients to record the amount of weight they used for an exercise

    I don't know if this is a feature already, but I cannot find it. When a client completes a workout with dbs, kbs, bb, or resistance bands, they should have the ability to record how much weight they used for the exercise. I am designing programs and don't see where I can add that field.

  20. Add a "height" field for certain exercises

    Add a "height" field for exercises. For example: box squats (height of box used), elevated push ups, and even height of j-cups for barbell/rack exercises.
    This also be useful to store seat settings for various machines, like a seated hamstring curl. It's not easy to remember yourself!
