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. Bring back colour coding and repeating events to program scheduler

    With a recent update for Stacking Multiple Programs, Trainerize introduced a new scheduler that depreciated the colour coding and repeating events.
    This idea is to bring back the features from the previous scheduler.

  2. Ability to see upcoming training phase to prepare for it.

    As a user, it's frustrating that I can't see my next program until the day it starts.

    Example: It's Saturday and my new program starts on Monday (updated exercises or reps or something). Nothing shows up in my calendar though until Monday :/

    Ideal: It would be great to see the next program that I have available so that I can prep for it. Instead, I have to wait until Monday morning (workout time) and I have to scramble to figure out the new routine in order to get it done in time. I'd prefer to have the next program…

  3. I'd like to be able to insert "Rest" directly into the a workout I'm building.

    We should be able to drag and drop "Rest" instead of it being automatically added to the end of a session.

  4. Easier Program Changing

    When you update a program description and change, add or substitute exercises, you have to re-schedule the workout in the calendar and re-do the advanced progressions every time, otherwise the changes never show up.

    Make it so that when you make a change to a program, it is automatically updated without rescheduling and without re-doing the entire advanced progression planner.

  5. Let us build and assign training programs from the app

    Instead of having to jump on the computer, using the app we can assign programs quicker and easier

  6. Ability to plan out muscle group volume by sets

    It can be challenging to calculate just how much volume a particular muscle group will receive in a workout and week. It would be great if the app could graph how many sets a particular muscle group will be exposed to in a workout and across the week when planning training programs. It would greatly benefit stimulus/fatigue management. I can't imagine this being too difficult to implement as the exercise library already has the main muscle groups for an exercise recorded; it would just need to calculate total sets per muscle group and graph/table it.

  7. Total volume for each exercise within the session plan

    It would be great if at the bottom of each exercise there was a total volume displayed in consideration of the sets reps and weight selected.
    Even better if it could be changeable if you add more sets etc.
    This would be helpful for the clients to ensure they're progressively overloading.

  8. AM or PM training schedule

    Example....Some of my clients do Running in the AM then I’d like them to do their Rehab Ex program in the PM or Swim in The PM post Run as an Active Recovery session

  10. Unlimited scroll on clients/programs

    With clients and programs it’s a waste of time and hassle to constantly have to click on the little page icon to get to either more clients or a program within a client. It needs to just be a continuous scroll up and down that auto populates as you go. TrueCoach and others have this and it’s so much easier and faster to just scroll especially when you have a program on say pages 3-4 so now you have to click page 2 just see page 3 visible to click. Lots of wasted time.

  11. Welcome video for specific master programs

    I have personal training clients and sell programs that target 2 completely different demographics. When I sell a program I would like them to see a different welcome video than my personal training client see.

  12. PRINT

    We need to have an option for clients to print workouts that includes the REP SCHEMES DESIGNATED. The ability to print right now only gives the exercise then the number of sets, but no instructions from the reps or rest columns. They should be able to print something that has everything they need to do their workout (aside from videos obviously) because not everyone likes carrying their phone with them everywhere in the gym.

  13. Schedule a break/ time-off in a plan

    It would be nice to have a option to add a break into a scheduled program for a client if they need time off for illness or injury without having to fully rebuild the plan. For example you have a 6 week plan set up and workouts scheduled but client gets sick and you need to delay the plan for 10 days on the 2nd week of the plan so they can recover and start back up on week 3 after their scheduled 10 day break. It would just automatically push everything down on the calendar without needing to manually…

  14. Progression Spreadsheet should be built in with the edit screen.

    You should allow for the monthly progression to be done while creating the workout as well.

  15. Access saved programs from the app

    Access, edit, and subscribe clients to programs from the app. When I get a notification that someone purchased a program, I want to be able to subscribe them to the program as soon as possible. If I’m not home at my computer, it would be great to be able to subscribe them right from my phone instead of waiting hours (or maybe days) to be on my computer again.

    Would also be great to be able to edit programs from my phone. The good idea fairy comes at random times, so I might want to make a tweak to a…

  16. Running and cycling programs

    I use training peaks to set training plans for marathons, triathlons etc. It would be good to have the facility to set threshold zones, pace and HR zones for running and power zones for cycling. As well as being able to add notes to advise the client on how to tackle that session

  17. Substitute exercises in master program

    what I'm asking for is what you have in the work out mode itself where I can quickly substitute an exercise without having to rewrite all the information in the box. Similar to the phone app. Hopefully all that makes sense.

    I am currently building different phases of programs that I can plug in I just want to make a quick switch to an individuals program without the need to type in the additional information.

  18. Ability to create workouts on the app and not just the computer

    Sometimes if you are on the go, you don't have time to get a quick workout to a client from your phone without your laptop. It would be WAY easier to make workouts straight from the app on your phone and adding to your client's program.

  19. Training systems

    A simple training system drop down for each exercise on a "regular" workout.

    So rather than having to type the full drop set, pyramid set, Eccentric info etc etc, in each exercise note. where we already type the rep range etc.

    As a trainer we could put a key in the workout description

    DS = Drop set (perform set for required reps.... Etc etc)

    PS = Pyramid set......

    Etc etc.

    Then all we have to do is along with typing in notes on each exercise, we put in the reps and sets as we would normally and then simply select…

  20. Adding notes to master plans

    Can you please add the option to add trainer notes to the master programs/workouts? I used to be a "sticky note" nut before trying to adopt technology and being able to add little notes as a reference point has always been really helpful. For example, on one saved program the ability to put "this is for people who will train at home using only body weight/resistance bands 3x per week and the gym 2x per week" etc.
