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. increase distance amount that can be inputed on cardio exercises by clients

    Hi
    If I schedule a cardio exercise or day as ‘rower’, my clients can input a maximum of 999m rowed. Given some of my clients are training to row across the Atlantic Ocean this isn’t enough. Can this be increased to unlimited? Or have the option to input KM’s? Cheers

  3. Would like to see pregnancy specific exercises

    If possible I'd like to see pregnancy specific exercises ... existing exercise database could be updated to show for example: safe in trimester 1, 2 and/or 3

  6. Sort Exercise Library by video type and whether it has a description

    Add in a sorting or filter feature to quickly find Custom Exercises that:


    • Have no video, have a custom video, or have a linked YouTube video

    • Don't have description text

    Often I will quickly add exercises from YouTube if it is something that I need for a client's plan but haven't filmed yet (and isn't available in the Trainerize Library). I then go back and fill in these exercises with my own custom videos when I have the time, and it would be nice to be able to sort and find these quickly.

    The same applies with Exercise descriptions. Sometimes…

  7. Allow clients to record the amount of weight they used for an exercise

    I don't know if this is a feature already, but I cannot find it. When a client completes a workout with dbs, kbs, bb, or resistance bands, they should have the ability to record how much weight they used for the exercise. I am designing programs and don't see where I can add that field.

  8. Comment box to enter reps and weight

    Sometimes you want to enter partial reps so being able to write in in the comment box would be easier

  9. Add a "height" field for certain exercises

    Add a "height" field for exercises. For example: box squats (height of box used), elevated push ups, and even height of j-cups for barbell/rack exercises.
    This also be useful to store seat settings for various machines, like a seated hamstring curl. It's not easy to remember yourself!

  11. Allow clients to live stream their own workout so their trainer can offer advice and tips remotely.

    Basically any client could have the option to do their own live stream so that their assigned trainer can pop in to see what they're doing and give them advice and tips on how to improve form and/or offer different modalities to the workouts they are doing for an added challenge.

  12. Training phase with progressions printable

    Being able to print a training phase with all the progressions included. Compact but easy to see all weeks over one or two sheets. It could look much like the progression editor.

  13. Replace/Add new upper body foam rolling exercises

    I want to do mobility workouts for my clients and for the foam rolling the form is worse than horrible. For some of them the person demonstrating rolls all over his low back. And for other, the "chest foam rolling", couldn't be worst, the guy rolls from his armpits all the way down his chest, and first, that's not how you roll your pecs, and second, that is no possible to do for a woman for obvious reasons. I'll have to film my own videos for this. Please, please, replace those videos or just delete them for avoiding someone using…

  17. checklists

  18. More bodyweight/calisthenics exercises. Particularly isometrics

    Planches, levers, l sits holds etc.

    The whole bases of bodyweight exercises is that they use progressions to create load.
    Knee pushup
    Regular pushup
    Elevated pushup
    Handstand pushup
    Etc.

    Maybe a option for people to share their exercise libraries to join the main pack. With approval of course. For the greater good. So you dont have to film every possible exercise. You could have guidelines on what is acceptable and then open it up to the community. I would share mine.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the vote for this idea. We’ve added the push-up progressions to the our to-film list.

    If there’s any other exercises, you would like to see, please provide a list of the specific exercises so we can add them to our list.

    Thanks!
