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. Preview/announcement of next exercise during rest periods in an interval workout

    For example, during an interval workout that is structured: Exercise A (30 seconds), Rest (15 seconds), Exercise B (30 seconds), Rest (15 seconds)...etc., it would be nice for the client to see a video preview of the upcoming exercise during the rest period in between, and also for said upcoming exercise to be announced during the rest period (rather than cutting into the time of the exercise's actual interval period).

  2. Audio added to workouts

    Add audio to workouts, for example when clients do EMOM workouts it would be great if the reps are read out so clients don’t have to stop and check how many reps to complete.

  4. Add an auto save feature to workouts, incase the app closes

    I've had quite a few clients mention this over the last few years. It would be awesome if the app could auto save entries for weight and reps during a workout, just incase the app crashes. It's happened quite a few times where the app will crash and all of the data entered for that workout will be deleted.

  5. Copy/Paste Function for Entering Workout Data

    Allow for copy/paste function when client is entering their workout details, instead of client having to enter rep/weight into each set (example: “copy to next line” function)

  6. Autosave stats on workouts without completing the workout

    Right now you cant go back to dash in the middle of recording a workout without all of your stats being erased. You have to save and rate an incomplete workout, go back and check what you need to check, and then go back and finish, or discard everything and then put everything all over again. You should be able to check your calendar, dash, training program, and profile in the middle of recording your stats.

  8. Ability to automate the WOD feature so you can create specific workouts to be sent on on specific dates.

    I want to be able to automate a WOD to be sent out to a group on a certain day and certain time. I don't want to put these workouts in a program since I have a product that is specifically for WODS.

  9. Easily see other similar lifts I or clients have done in past to make loading decisions

    For instance a client is in a new phase and wants to know where they should set their load but they haven’t done this lift before but they have done similar ones and want to get an idea of where to start

  11. 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.

  12. An apply all button

    An apply all button so that you don't have to change the sets reps for each exercise.

    Example
    You make a plan with 6 exercises in it then click on one exercise enter sets and reps and then a button to apply the same to all exercises would just save time

  15. 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…

  16. Calculate total weight lifted during a workout

    I personally use an app called Strong for my training, which tells me the total weight I have lifted during my workout. I put a photo of this on Instagram and a few of my clients were asking if the trainerize app does this as they would like to know. From my experience, a lot of people like to know the total weight they have lifted.

  18. More minutes and seconds options for intervals

    In the interval feature, after 2 minutes, it jumps to 3,4,5,10,15,20,25,30. More interval options would be helpful. For example, half minutes and every minute up to 30 minutes or more.
