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!

  2. I would really like a quick "Like" function for client activity.

    To be able to quickly acknowledge them without having to send a full message! Just like on FB or IG, to be able to simply "Like" that they checked in for cardio.

    This can be on the overview screen.

    Hi everyone,



    Thanks for your great suggestion! We’re marking this idea as completed!
 You can now do it on the web app. The v6.9.16 iOS and Android apps are rolling out and you should see the same functionality over the new few days.

    We’re returning your vote to you so please come back to ideas.trainerize.com to add your vote to other ideas.

    Thanks!

  3. 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:

    http://ideas.trainerize.com/forums/167887-fitness-nutrition-training-features/suggestions/38714152-send-video-message-via-web-app

  4. 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.

  5. Add a daily reminder to the calendar, or schedule daily habits

    The ability to set up simple habits for clients to follow and track adherence to i.e. Yes/No to Getting protein at a meal time.

    Apps like Habit Bull on Android or websites like Coachific are great examples of these.

    Hi all,

    The habits feature is currently in open beta. You can turn it on by going to Add-ons > Integrations and scroll down to the bottom section “Beta Labs”.

    You can turn on the habit module from there.

    Habits v1 will go live in Q1. v1 focuses on prescribing custom habits to individual clients.

    Your vote has been returned to you. Feel free to suggest new ideas for the habits module back on the ideas.trainerize.com.

    Thanks!

  6. Allow MyFitnessPal to sync with all data (including calorie goals and what they're actually eating).

    Currently, it says clients have a low workout compliance and you can only see macros. This doesn't help with knowing their calorie goals and what they're actually eating. If you could change this then I think a lot of people would be happy as it would be such a useful tool!

    Hi all,

    Happy to announce this has been completed.

  7. Allow a video loop to keep playing while the timer keeps running

    Allow video playing while the timer keeps running.

    For Interval training is a big handicap to stop the timer to see the video...specially fot HIT workouts that need short bursts and flow.

    Is reaaly a big issue, many clients left the app due to this problem!
    Please check this option ASAP ! Thanks in advance

    Hi everyone,

    

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


    The new interval timer with looping videos is slowly rolling out but you can manually turn it on via your settings > Advanced > Enable New Interval Workouts. Currently the looping videos are only for Trainerize videos only.

    We’re returning your vote to you so please come back to ideas.trainerize.com to add your vote to other ideas.

    Some interval related ideas you might be interested in:

    Ability to easily substitute or replace Trainerize exercises with my own.

    Thanks!

  8. 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.

  9. add to the trainer version of the mobile app the ability to setup and edit client data including workouts

    I would love to be able to add clients via the mobile app so I DON'T have to get onto a laptop or desktop to create a client profile, add or remove exercises, etc. It takes extra time out of my day to have to go home and sit for 30 minutes to set stuff up when I could just do it in my spare time from my Android on the go! I'd love to have that flexibility and freedom!

    Hi everyone,

    Over the past few mobile app versions, we have ported most of the daily editing functionality for workouts and training plans down to the mobile app.

    For now, advanced functionality like copying training plans will remain on the web.

    Thanks for your great ideas. Please create more new suggestions on how we can help you build your workouts or training plans faster!

    Thanks.

  11. Folders For Master Programs

    Allow us to place our different Master Programs into folders, or at least allow us to tag them.

    For instance:

    Giving us the ability to create a folder such as General Physical Preparedness (GPP) and then store all our GPP programs in the folder for ease of us.

    GPP
    - Program 1
    - Program 2
    - etc...

    Or

    Weight loss
    - Program 1
    - Program 2
    - etc...

    This could also be done by allowing us to tag our master programs

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Goals

    Clients buy the vision of what you will do for their bodies not the app itself, as awesome as what it is. Where's the section on goals, with deadlines to achieve these? Goals section please, so so important to know, keep track of and work towards. Auto reminder everyday to go out to the client reminding them of their most important goals and confirming they are achieving results that are helping them get there. Thanks D

  16. Client assessment forms along with a Par-Q

    It would be ideal if trainerize offered automatic emails of assessment forms to those signed up. Right now we have to email them but would be easier if it happened automatically once they logged in. Everything from Par-Q to a dietary record so that we can create a comprehensive client profile to better offer personalized training based on their needs.

    Hi everyone,



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


    Upon setting up of your app for the first time, you/your clients will be prompted to pick a calendar to sync Trainerize appts to. Simply pick your Google calendar.

    Similarly, you can change your sync options manually in your Settings > Appointment sync on the mobile app.

    We’re returning your vote to you so please come back to ideas.trainerize.com to add your vote to other ideas.

    Thanks!

  18. Virtual group training

    Provide a way to add multiple clients to the same session who will share the same training plans and calendar for a certain period of time (i.e. 7 days, 30 days) like what is done for group challenges.

    HI everyone,

    Happy to announce we’ve completed this idea. Thanks for supporting the idea everyone.

    If you notice in your web app, there is an additional section called Programs. you can now subscribe your clients to programs.

    If you wish to do virtual group training (like intakes or bootcamps), you can create a new Training Group and everyone in the group will follow the same program at the same time.

    If you wish to have people start at any time, or subscribe to different programs, you can certainly subscribe them directly to a program, but just put them into a regular Fitness Community group.

    We hope you enjoy this feature.

    Many of you have commented about challenges too. You may wish to vote and leave your comments on this thread for us:
    http://ideas.trainerize.com/forums/167887-general/suggestions/19599250-challenges

  20. Video messaging!!
