Trainerize

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!

  2. Ability to log/track and search for 1RM, 3RM, 5RM, 10 rep max history for each client easily

    Currently in the trainerize apk there is a history list and a running bar showing 3 rm, 5rm, max weight ever and max volume. As so, the trainee is unable to quickly check the PRs for the rep range that his/her coach prescribed for the given day.
    Solution:Clicking the exercise leads to a history list with date, reps and weight, swiping left leads to a list of all rep ranges (1-15) and the records for these rep ranges.

  4. Adding an auto percentage max rep calculator based on 1RM

    I have a suggestion that could potentially help out a Lot of you.
    Adding a PR tracker/calculator to the app. If the client hits a 3RM of
    squat for 205, then that could be added to the clients personal record
    tracker. The calculator part would take the 3RM, and see what percentage
    that is of the 1RM, and state the estimated 1RM. so lets say the clients
    1RM is calculated as 220, then when the trainer says to do 8 reps to fail
    on 8th rep, the client can see that they should be doing around 175lbs.
    Another benefit of…

  6. Add small group, partner or duo training format. Ability to track each client quickly

    For small groups it would save a lot of time if we would add group workouts to a group of people.

    This would work for small group and semi private clients.

    There could be two options for tracking.

    1. The clients track their own stats (ideal for small groups)

    2. With in the same view/page you could add stats for multiple people in a given workout with out having to switch in and out of clients to add stats (ideal for semi private)

    This is a must have feature. Right now stat tracking for more than one client at a time is…

  7. Polar heart rate technology

    I currently use Polar HR7 Monitor with all clients, tracking training zones, average heart rates and maximum heart rates, this would be great to link with Trainerize so that all session data is recorded automatically.

  10. ability to set or schedule future nutrition goals and see past nutrition goals

    I would love to be able to create a 'new' nutrition goal rather than editing it. Also I'll like to be able to schedule future nutrition goal for nutrition phases and pre-planning of their macros.

    I would like to be able to see what we've done in the past as I don't set goals based on % of macros so when the client is losing weight, the calories and grams of each nutrient changes. I would like to be able to still see past goals for comparison and change over time.

  12. More automated Message customization options

    More automated Message customization options. Id like the ability to:
    1. send a message when a client misses a set number of workouts.
    2. send a message when a client logs in for a set number of workouts.
    3. send a message based on pre set crieria ( Ex: send message if client Resting HR is above 60. Send message when over/under on calories )

    Hi all,

    Thanks for coming to the idea forum and adding your vote to this idea.

    Over the next few years, we are committed to increasing the diversity of models within our exercise library as we have more resources to dedicate to this.

    Thanks!

  16. Allow me to define availability and let clients to self book/reschedule appointments

    Trainers should be able to plot in when they are available and when they are busy, so that clients can schedule and re-schedule sessions easy.

  17. Ability to track Appointments as "completed, no show, etc" - show completed appointments under each Trainer

    This would be critical for payroll/accounting purposes. As a brick and mortar establishment, we of course kept track of all completed personal training sessions for payroll purposes of our employees. We also tracked/compensated for appointments where the client late cancels, or no shows. If this could be tracked somewhere for easy reporting - like underneath each trainers name and sorted by weekly, monthly, etc it would simplify payroll processing. It would also allow us to charge clients for no shows or late cancels.

  18. Logging Exercize Bands, using their Color or Type

    When training with Exercise bands, we need the ability to log them.

    We need to be able to log them, by the 2 main indicators used with bands, which are: COLOR (such as Red, Green, Black, Purple, etc) and Light/Medium/Heavy/XtraHeavy

  19. I would like a suggested alternative exercise section

    I understand clients can go in and substitute exercises. But I would like to have a list of my suggested alternatives first. I sell master programs and I run into the issue of clients not having the necessary equipment and need an alternative I do not want to go in and build out a million different versions of a master plan to meet each individual client's needs. I would like a way for clients to substitute exercises with that I suggest in case they don't have that equipment.

    Another solution that might be a stretch is based on the consultation…

  20. Free Trial Period without credit card

    I want to create a program where I can "sell" a 1 week free trial. With payments they have to put in a CC number before they can move on and I think that will scare everyone away. I would like for it to only require a payment if the cost is greater than .01

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for suggesting this feature.

    We are currently starting the planning phase with this feature and we need your feedback and use cases to ensure we build this correctly for you.

    Please let us know:
    - What kind of free trial offers you are currently running?
    - Where do you/would you list your free trial offers?
    - Any program/meal plan/etc automations required on sign up?
    - How long is the trial for?
    - What happens at the end of the trial?
    - Do you want their credit card collected upfront to upsell them to another product? Or be credit card free?

    Any other details you think will help us understand your needs for free trial will be extremely helpful!

    Thanks!

    Trevor Chong
    Product Director @ Trainerize
