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. Track RIR (reps in reserve)

    Create more specialized training programs for clients by using reps in reserve to help guide training progress and not leave strength and muscular gains on the table.

  2. Be able to set your own workout intervals e.g between 5 to 10 mins

    I have clients that are completing rounds of circuits over 5 minutes but the next jump is 10 mins. Would be nice to set my own timings e.g. 5 and a half mins or 6 mins etc.

  4. Showing previous workouts when using the progression feature

    Currently you can change the reps and sets on a weekly basis for any given workout. If you could include the previous stats, weight, reps completed or RPE from the previous weeks; this would make it easier to successful program what volume and intensity the client should receive for the following weeks.

    You can also layout the progress made for each client in a more concise manner.

  5. The ability to format text in the workout instructions

    It would be nice to have the ability to format text in the workout instructions (i.e. bold, italics, underline, bullet, number, etc). I think it would help make instructions more clear and appear more professional.

  6. Programme any length set time for the interval workouts.

    Rather than just being able to input timings in the interval workout between 10-60 and then every minute, we should be able to programme any timing. Eg 65 seconds or 75. The jump is too high from 60 seconds to 90 seconds to allow my clients to progress properly.

  7. Can the workout progressions save from week to week?

    When I progress the workout weekly, It shows the initial program. It would be helpful if you could see the progressions from the previous weeks.

  9. "Adjust All" for interval timers on interval workouts

    For the workouts that we build as "interval workouts" is there a way to include a feature where we can adjust all the exercises to the same interval/rest? For instance I have 5 exercises and I want to adjust the intervals from 45s on/15s rest to 50s on/10s rest; right now I have to adjust EACH exercise and rest, if I could have a change all option that would be fabulous and easier to adjust my client's workouts as they progress.

  10. I would like to have an option to add a "Rest day" button into the calendar.

    I would like to have an option to add a "Rest day" button into the calendar. I think it helps to visualize the importance of considering rest day a part of your workout program.

  11. Ability for clients to form groups with their families to self-motivate

    A group of my clients are challenging each other to drop the extra weight. I was thinking, it would be great if we could just use Trainerize to form a group – share our workouts, habits and food with each other to help hold each other accountable. So, instead of using Strave+FitnessPal+Facebook, we could just use Trainerize.

    None of us were interested in signing up with a trainer to get it done – but we’re pretty good at challenging each other 😊

    Especially for clubs I think this would be a great way to allow friends, families and groups to…

  15. Ability to view video and type in stats + notes in same window

    I've had many clients tell me how cumbersome it is to have to click out of the workout to watch the video, then back in to type the stats and go to the next exercise. I'd like to see that flow better so they can simply type their stats under the video and then flow directly to the next video without all that clicking back and forth.

    This missing thing may have me switching to PT Distrinction soon.... :(

  16. Autofill

    When a client is working out, currently they have to fill in reps and weight or time for each set individually, this is very redundant. If a client is doing 4 sets of bench press @ 185lbs for 10 reps all 4 sets should auto fill.

  19. bulk copy workouts to programs

    If we create a new workout/warm up/etc. that we want to copy to multiple programs at once vs. doing each individually would be awesome
