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. Allow trainers to 'cue up' the next training plan for a client

    A feature to allow trainers to 'cue up' the next training plan for a client, and specify a date for the new plan to replace the old one. That way when a client's old plan is over, it switches them over to the next training plan without any intervention needed by the trainer.

  3. Allow fully automated pre-set workout programs and challenges for online sign ups directly

    We do 90 day challenges with workout plans, video support and meal plans. We only have two workout plans for the 90 days, beginner and intermediate and a couple of available meal plans. It would be wonderful if we could set this up to be a fully automated experience for the client. It would also allow us to scale the service to a wider audience.

    Hi everyone,

    The Zapier app automation feature is now out of beta. Simply sign in into your add-ons section and locate the Zapier app automation section.

    Here you can see some common workflows, but with our support for Zapier, we now integrate with over 500+ apps that you can plug into Zapier and build out your custom workflow.

    If you have any questions about it, please do not hesitate to contact our help team at help@trainerize.com. Thanks!

  4. Allow vimeo videos to be uploaded for training demonstrations

    As of right now, there's only one option to use to upload videos which is Youtube. Using Vimeo provides better quality back to clients(especially visually) and overall experience.

    Hi everyone,

    We’ve performed a huge upgrade with the Trainerize platform on Friday. We’ve now launched the Video Drive so you can seamlessly upload videos in app, without needing to go to YouTube or Vimeo, syncing them and deal with the messy permissions.

    Learn more about this in your add-ons section under Video Drive.

  5. add the ability to "flag" emails or tick as "unread"

    All to often we can over look important emails if they have been unticked. The ability to flag an email would be fantastic to help prevent this.

  9. Ability to customise log in screen with custom image & colours etc

    Would be good to be able to customise the currently rather grey and dull log on screen with custom image/logo/colours to reflect individual business.

  12. Include a welcome video in a trainer's profile

    Have the ability to post a welcome video. So when a client signs into the app for the very first time on the web or iphone, they are greeted with a trainer's personal greeting video.

    HI everyone,

    You can now add a welcome video to greet your new clients when they first sign into the app. Simply go into your mobile app’s Settings > In-app videos and upload the welcome video directly from there.

  13. Have the ability to COMPLETELY bypass the Trainerize site and instead use our own website.

    Currently we are forced to have a trainerize homepage, contact page etc. I think it is outright silly that we do not have the option to just have the log in page and insert a link to our ACTUAL homepage, contact page, sign-up page, etc. into the platform.

    I know I can just give users the "log in" link but this is far from enough because:


    1. The users are instructed, in the welcome email, to go to the trainerize version of my site in order to log in.


    2. Once they sign into the platform if they click on ANY of…

    Hi Barton,

    This is already available. Please go into your site settings > web address and use option 3.

    By putting in your existing site address, any communication to your clients uses your existing site address.

    Just also make sure on your own site, to encode the login button to point to xxx.trainerize.com/app/logon.aspx.

    Any links to your “main site” will point to your own existing site. Your client will not be exposed to the xxx.trainerize.com/ simplified site.

  14. Disabling of email reminders to clients for any time a change is made by the trainer

    The disabling of email reminders to clients for any time a change is made by the trainer to one of their programs.
    Can we have a checkbox to disable these update emails, and just have them sent their normal workout reminders?

  15. Upload client progress pics directly from phone.

    Currently we have to sign in to the desktop to add photos. It would be great to be able to do this directly from the phone app

  16. Update the mobile app so that we can add exercises to clients program on the go

    Allow us to change their workout by adding in exercise on the fly. Therefore if half way through training a client I decide I want to add in hamstring curls then using the app I can just add the extra exercise right there and then and still be able to track results.

  18. Fix mobile site so that previous stats show up for custom exercises.

    Currently they do not. I alternate different intensity training on each workout so it would be nice to see my prior stats for each intensity level. I've noticed the stats don't show up for custom created exercises.

    Also, the stats that do show up for the other exercises are out of order. Please order them by date!

  20. Being able to add and access client profiles on the mobile site / iPhone app

    We're exploring the idea of adding features to the mobile side to allow you to access your client information on the go.
