Menstrual period tracking in app and shade the weight loss graph a different colour for coaches
When females have their menstrual cycle, it would be great to be able to see it on the chart with their weight loss, in a different colour

This is an amazing idea as the cycle can have huge impact on our RPE and the number on the scale.
This is such a fantastic idea!

A menstrual cycle tracker As stated in others that also allows to track energy/fatigue/RPE/recovery

Somehow have the ability to monitor when female clients are in the follicular or luteal phase of their cycle. The apple cycle tracker, Clue, or FitRWomen are all amazing apps, but it doesn't allow for me to see multiple females and their predicted hormonal states.
If I'm going to genuinely coach and train these ladies, this needs to be considered! I would be doing them a disservice by not including it in their training program! I realise that to incorporate it in the software is a lot of work.
But Trainerize, you could definitely look to integrate Apple/Samsung app, or another cycle tracking app so that trainers and coaches can have a really good sense of how our ladies are!
Burnout is one of the primary reasons why female leave sport in New Zealand, and by monitoring their cycle, we can look to care for them and support them throughout every phase of their month.
Something (anything!!) to see where our ladies are in their cycle, for their safety!

OMG! 100 times yes to this post!! I adjust my programs based on what phase my ladies are in! And it would be soooooo much easier to do this (and a better service), without having to do the maths on it every time!!

This would be so incredible for the women I coach.

Yes, a number of clients use the app Clue to track periods and symptoms. Would be great if Trainerize was able to sync with this.
Can i vote for this 11,000 times!!!! Out of all suggestions - this is by far the one that Im so shocked that it hasnt already been added.

I think this needs to go one step further and track the cycle the females are on as this directly impacts their strength and workout capacity.
By knowing which part of their cycle phase (Follicular, Ovulation, Luteal) they are on, the Trainer can better program for the client specifically.
Also have thing ability for the client to check-in went Ovulation starts and finishes mean you can track the cycle length and consistency.

Either through Apple Health, or another period tracking app such as Flo. I use alot of menstrual/hormonal focused protocols with my female clients, in which we are constantly tracking for body temperature and menstrual cycle timings, and symptoms - having this integrate with Trainerize, or a built in option for women to select when they are menstruating would be helpful

yes I love this! I always have to check in with my female clients when their weight goes up a little like "hey are you on your period?" lol, kind of awkward sometimes

Many of my clients have asked for this
If Trainerize could link up with Flo app cycle tracker, this would help our female clients to get even better results by understanding how their cycle effects progress/training etc. I use this app currently with my clients, but it would help so much to have it link to their profile so all data is in one place.
The menses cycle in women plays a vital role in how they are feeling and their training phases. Being able to predict when a client is going to be able to lift heavy and when she needs to go slow would be extremely beneficial
Ashley Pierce commented
On the Clients DASH they can add a workout of many types. Can we add an option where they add a start/stop menstrual cycle from that same (+) menu?
That way we can correlate that info with pictures and biofeedback!
Thank so much!

This is so important and sad that the industry doesnt make enough noise about monitoring it. It would definitely be first of it's kind.
Female hormonal imbalance is a huge factor in achieving results.
Right now my clients are sending me screenshots of their tracking app so I can periodise their program accordingly and open the discussion on whether their nutrition isnt the only thing they need to be mindful of
With female clients around their period they can experience weight gain and bloating. Adding a period tick box to measurements with some way of highlighting the plot on the graph would allow clients to look back at their progress and see if their period is the reason for any changes to progress.

This would be VERY helpful. I find myself am constantly asking my female clients where they are on their cycle. Being able to see habit/lifestyle trends along side of cycle data would be extremely useful.

An option for female clients to enter confidentially their mentrual cycle ( tick box if / when menstruating to allow a logarithmic calculation after 2-3 repeated cycles to highlight the expected next period). This would permit for adjustments in training adjustment and cycling of carbs/ protein if nutrition is part of the program.
