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. Resting / Active energy tracking

    Would love an update that connects with Apple Health (I see this is already requested) but specifically connecting to reading the data on Active and Resting energy. All great for my trainer to see my on going nutrition but he also needs to understand my energy output to best balance the two

  3. Allow set nutritional focus/goals/meal plans to be attached to programs

    I would like to see the ability to attach nutritional information to a program. So if someone purchases or is subscribed to a program they are also subscribed to a nutritional guide/goals. This could be a PDF information sheet or a meal plan. So if for example someone is on a muscle gain/fat loss program there can be specific nutritional direction given to compliment that program.

  4. Allow for fitbit nutritional data to be viewed on trainerize.

    There are a lot of companies who utilize the fitbit for wellness programs. Part of the incentive they provide is entering nutritional data into fitbit. Currently, I would need to require clients to double enter their nutritional data for the day. Once in myfitnesspal and once on Fitbit. If the client could have the option on what they want to use it would be extremely helpful. Thanks!

  5. I would love a feature in trainerize to where clients can purchase a program that I've created as an automated thing and do it on their own.

    I would love a feature in trainerize to where clients can purchase a program that I've created as an automated thing and do it on their own. This is so I can generate more income on a passive level for those who need less hands on support. This feature should include automated emailing too.

    Hi everyone,

    You can now schedule messages within the calendar.

    Simply open the calendar of a master program or the calendar within a client’s account.

    You will see the option to schedule up to 3 messages to be sent out at a particular time..

    Thanks for voting up this idea!

  8. Ability for clients to view videos in Landscape orientation

    I've uploaded my own workout videos, each are around an hour in length. My clients watch, listen and follow. If a phone is all they have available, then it's difficult to see the form in the current default orientation (vertical). Would be nice if when the client turns the phone sideways that the content (video) would rotate with it and show up larger in "landscape" mode.

  10. Workouts notes and client comments about a workout

    In the notes tab section when the client is doing it finishing their work out if there could be a notification or 8+ one on the note tab section because my clients leave notes sometimes but I don't know whether or not they left a note unless I tap on the note tab. It would be nice if there was something notifying if a client left a note about their workout without having to tap on the note to see if they did. It would help because the note that they would leave would be regarding about their work out…

  12. Make auto-messages from the coach NOT cause unread messages from the trainee to appear as read.

    I have 100+ clients. When an auto-message goes out to new clients, say on their 4th day, it functions like a personal message from me and marks any previous unread message from them as read. I can easily miss something they have asked. Same with "message-all" functions - say I want to send everyone a great article or new blog post... suddenly all unread message notifications are gone.

  13. Interval Timer: Allow us to enter work/rest times

    The new Interval Timer is awesome! I would like more control over setting the times - specifically, I need it to allow for 60/20, 45/15 and 40/20 work to rest intervals. I don't use Tabatas often, but I'm sure many would appreciate and option for 20/10 as well.

  14. Voice prompt stating "half way" on interval timer

    When performing an interval workout, it would be nice to have a voice prompt that lets you know when are at the half way mark of the allotted time. Example: for a 30-second exercise a voice prompt says "half way" at 15 seconds.

  15. Rowing metrics - Meters & Calories NOT Miles

    When choosing rower for a cardio workout, it should give an option to program the client's workload in both meters and calories. Right now it only allows miles as an option.

  16. Give Clients the option to film video of an exercise for trainer review

    It would be great to give clients the ability to shoot a short clip of them performing an exercise for the trainer or coach to review form and make suggestions. I know for a fact this will give our clients a more personal connection and better retention eliminating the need to seek in house trainers for additional coaching.

  17. Disable business features such as earn a free month for shared trainers and below.

    Currently, a business owner has no way to disable features such as earn a free month for any of their trainers. Being able to hide such features would make the app feel more professional, especially when using a customised app.
