allow client to add notes for each excercise
Now, it's possible for clients to make notes for the whole workout, but not for each excercise. Would be great to do that (Example: "Reduced weight bench press due to DOMS" --> barbell bench press. "New record, yes!" --> Barbell Squat)
Otherwise, great job! Love your Service and my clients do too.
Thanks for your great suggestion! We've added this to our work queue. We'll post further updates here as our teams pick it up to work on it. Please come back to ideas.trainerize.com to add your vote to other ideas.

allow client to add notes for each exercise

Hey! This could be an interesting feature to have. Maybe with an ability for the client to Flag some exercises with something like:
- Demo is not clear
- Don't have the equipment
- Can't perform this exercise
- Exercise doesn't feel right
- Exercise causes pain in "enter zone"
- Exercise is too easy
- Exercise is too hard
- Exercise feels great (we have to know which ones do feel better for the client)
- Improved my form
- Lowered my tempo
- Increased my tempo
- Changed the Machine (cause different machines tend to have different resistance curves)
- Reduced Rest Time
- Increased Rest Time
I think exercise notes could be useful right under the Workout Notes. That's the most convenient place where I can think about placing them at this moment, considering all other things remain the same (interface wise).I'll be back with other ideas if something crosses my mind.
Would like seeing this feature in practice.

This is something almost all of my clients have asked for. Some examples of where it would be used are things like adding the weight of a none standard bar so they know when calculating what to load on. Sometimes we use bands, so colour of band. Maybe adding notes to go heavier next time or if they had issues that day with something
Hunter Olson commented
For example if I want a client to do glute bridges in a circuit. But the last round I want down with no weight and glute pumps added. I can note that in the exercise for that specific circuit.

This needs to happen. TrueCoach is ahead of the game when it comes to this, and I know a ton of coaches who have opted to change due to this one fact alone. Given the current climate, it's more important than ever to know exactly how each client is getting on with each exercise in their programme. Hopefully, this is sorted ASAP, or I'll also be making the switch.

Have a section where clients are able to write notes next to the exercise prescribed. This will allow them to write any important notes or reminders for the next time they train (e.g. push knees out in the squat, or make sure to activate glutes prior to session as glutes were switched off)

And/or level of difficulty for that workout/reps/weight. When I manually write down client workouts, if the client needs to go down on weight next time (to focus on form), then I put a minus sign next to it. If he/she needs to go up on weight (or reps) next time, I put a plus sign beside it. They may log, eg. doing 3 sets of 10 w/25, but it was too hard and realize next time they should do 10 w/20.
Add a notes option to add a note to specific exercises - example perform this as a drop set or perform AMRAP.

Be able to make notes about the exercise right next to where you can edit or input reps and lbs, instead of another click to the comment's or in the chat box.
Individual exercise notes and the ability to send photos and videos for the form checking
Can’t believe this was discussed nearly two years ago and still doesn’t seem to have been added... Am I missing it somewhere? This is a big thing for me and my clients, so it looks like I’m going to be using TrueCoach!
I totally agree with Liam's (and all the comments). It's one of my factors for trying to choose between Trainerize and TrueCoach. I prefer the way that Trainerize sets up the workouts for clients to follow, but the challenge is on the feedback side - clients' ability to provide simple input or upload a video with a set to review form, etc. I also do a lot of work with seniors in their homes and we use bands rather than weights for many of them, but there is no way to note what bands we used, if we had to make any alterations to a set, one leg having more balance than another, etc.

Allow for comments/instruction/notes on each individual exercise
Liam Saechao commented
Hi I'm new and testing out Trainerize and I noticed this post has been in here for a few years. It would be nice to get some update on what's going on with this. I'm currently using TrueCoach and the client feedback feature for each exercise was one of my favourite feature with TrueCoach. I think allowing clients to add a note or video for each exercise will help improve the software. I would like to be able to review their notes as I check in their completed workout log
Let the client make a note on a particular set of an exercise.
For example on the last set of a barbell bench press, The client would be able to make a note that they could only get three reps versus five. Or they can make a note about how their shoulder felt weird when they hit the last set of an exercise.

Need to be able to log amrap and emom

Special note section for exercises so we can leave more clear instructions for clients

It's so so useful especially now that we're training with bands and random objects to specify "today I add 1 can to the squat / I used two bands together / I kept the legs straight during my table body rows".
Super important to be able to see past exercises notes as you can see past PBs
