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. Ability to track sleep and add sleep hours

    create an entire part of the client profile for them to report sleeping, recovery ratings and stress! Great to have for clients in prep or in crazy training blocks

    Hi all,

    Your clients can now use their Apple Watch, Fitbit or Withings wearables to track sleep and have it sync into Trainerize.

    For the syncing with the Apple Watch, you will need to go turn on the beta by navigating to the Add-ons > Integration and scrolling down to the botttom and turn Apple Watch beta on.

    For Fitbit users, they will need to disconnect and reconnect their account to request for the new sleep permissions.

    Manual sleep tracking can also be done by tapping on the sleep tile on the dashboard, opening the graph and hitting +.

    https://help.trainerize.com/hc/en-us/sections/360007955332-Apple-Health-and-Apple-Watch

    We are also currently working on the sleep habit. What aspect of sleep would you want to set a habit on? Total sleep time, time to sleep, or wake time?

    Your vote has been returned to you. Please come back to vote on new ideas.
    Thanks!

  2. Steps! We need to able to see our clients steps

    We all understand NEAT and how much this count for energy expenditure! We must be able to see our clients steps from their fitbit/ watch of choice. This would make the app near perfect. This is a massive thing for all fat loss clients especially

    Hi all,

    Closing this out as in our previous release, Fitbit and Withings devices now sync their steps into Trainerize.

    If you are looking to turn on syncing for Apple Health/Watch, you can turn on the beta within the Add-ons > Integrations and scroll down to the bottom section “Beta labs”.

    Your vote has been returned to you. Please come back and vote on more ideas at ideas.trainerize.com or add any new suggestions.

    Thanks!

  3. Customize color Scheme

    Creating a connection between my brand in my clients is important to me. Customizable colors and branding would be “amazing” for my business. I appreciate your platform, but I don’t want my clients to “feel” like it isn’t “my” platform. Hope that makes sense

    HI all,

    This can already be done if you purchase a custom mobile app. You can add your custom logo and branding colours.

    You can find this within your Add-ons > Custom Mobile Apps section.

  4. Re-scheduling the automated workout reminders.

    My clients all receiving their reminders at 9am(while at work) is either too late, or too early to do anything other than annoy them.

    Please allow us to change/reschedule the automated client workout reminders - preferably individual to the client.

    Manually filling their calendars with reminder messages, despite being templated, is tedious.

    Thanks!

  5. Allow more customization of branded app

    I would like to see more customization choices for those who, like myself, have purchased a branded app.

    It's great that we can upload our logos, customize splash landing screen, banners and colors, but at the end of the day, the actual interface of every single own branded Trainerize app is the SAME!!!

    I appreciate that making an app and adding all these things to it is a lot of work, but when we purchase one it's to have our business stand out. Therefore we don't necessarily want our app to look like that of the next trainer that comes…

  7. Ability to send an particular email based on the product they purchased

    If my client buys one one one training, I'd like them to get a custom email that is different from those purchasing a template program etc. Thank you!

    Hi everyone,



    Thanks for your great suggestion! We’re marking this idea as completed!


    This can be done by hooking up Trainerize to your favourite e-mail campaign app like Mailchimp or Constant Contact.

    Simply use the “new product purchase” or “product start date” event and hook it into an action that subscribes the user to that mailer journey.

  8. Manipulating start Dates for Master programs assigned to a group

    We are currently unable to manipulate the start date of a master program subscribed to a group! For example, I had a Weightloss challenge set to start on January 15th. When I subscribed all of my challengers to the master program as a group, I was ONLY able to pick the 13th (a Monday) or any Monday for that matter as my start date! So I had to unsubscribe everyone from the group , and then upload ONE BY ONE the same master program/challenge just so that I was able to change the start date of the program! Very tedious…

    As a trainer, you can go in a configure their dashboard by clicking on the little gear icon on their dashboard.

    The way you rearrange and turn on/off the graph tiles is the way your clients will see it.

    As such you can invite a client to the platform and then customize the dashboard to way you would like it.

  11. Update meal plan action

    Be able to change a client's meal plan PDF by using a Google drive or Dropbox file.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for your great suggestion! We’re marking this idea as completed!

    The zapier options now allow you to modify a client’s meal plan using the “Attach meal plan PDF” action and attach a file from Google Drive or Drop box.

    Similarly, you can now use the payments features in Trainerize to automate this.

    On purchasing of a product, you can have a meal plan PDF automatically attached to the client.

  12. Add hip thrust exercise and smith machine exercises

    Currently there is only a glute bridge option but no hip thrust exercises (eg. smith machine hip thrust)
    Also noticed there’s not a lot of Smith machine exercises in general or banded exercises.
    Also perhaps some partner exercises would be great as I often train 2 clients together (eg. partner Squats, sit up with medicine ball pass to each other).

  13. FILES / Informational Tab - Upload informational videos, documents etc

    I just want to be able to upload videos or documents (other than exercises) eg: "How to track on MFP", Macros 101, Guide to Supplements, How Fat Loss Works, Which triaining is best for you etc etc.

    Because this is an online coaching platform you want to be able to give as much information to the client as possible.

    A seperate tab on the overview page would be perfect. And allow clients to be able to access the Files whenever they needed information.

    Hi all,

    With the new v6 app, you can now record a video message directly from the mobile app, or pick from the camera roll.

    You can also attach a file in the messenger.

    Thanks for supporting this idea. Your vote has been returned to you to revote up another idea.

    One related idea you might be interested in is the ability to send video messages via the web application:

  14. Macronutrient Calculator

    An in-app Macro Calculator would be helpful. One that could do the heavy lifting and either update for a single client or mass update clients macros based off of their measurements/progress. This would help for groups or group challenges.

    Currently a feature in My PT Hub but not a fan of their UI.

    I've brought up this idea to other training software providers and all they do is link me calculators as if I don't know how to use google lol. It would be nice to be able to do this all in-app.

  15. Allow Trainers to Start Programs on Any Day of The Week

    As is, I can only subscribe a client to a program with a start date on a Monday. Not all of my clients billing cycle is set up to start on Monday, and I simply cannot keep up with the workload to create new programs starting on Monday every time. It seems silly that I am unable to start a program on any day of the week.

  16. Allow videos to be sent from camera roll as attachments in messenger.

    Currently, videos cannot be sent from clients to me or vice versa. This would be a helpful feature so I don't have to toggle back to texting when a video needs to be sent.

    For example, my client needed to send me a video of her home gym, but could not so texted to me.

  18. inspelade videos

    När jag spelar in en video till en klient så vill inte jag att den är offentlig. Det borde finnas ett val här. Detta är ett enormt minus för appen. Nu använder jag appen via mitt jobb Annars hade jag absolut valt en app där mina videos inte blir offentliga eller där jag har valmöjligheten. Detta borde ni definitivt se över.

  20. Adjustable Tiles on client dashboard

    My clients don’t need the default tiles currently on each dashboard... I track caliper % .. not generic BF (double work re entering info) I don’t use HR but do track inches ... The updated client dashboard is more aesthetically pleasing but since all of my 80+ clients aren’t using those tangibles for progress the dashboard really loses any ‘quick look’ appeal like it was intended for.
