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. MindBodyOnline or Paypal Payment. Allow seamless payment and new account creation on a purchase of my online workout program

    Allow some form of integration or process to take a payment through MindBodyOnline or Paypal.

    Once done, seamless up the account and copy a template client into the account to get it all set up.

  2. Improve Calendar : Add a "Drag/Drop" functionality / Master calendar

    This "Drag/Drop" feature would work best from both the "Workout Template" page (if the client's calendar can be seen at the side) but also as a feature on the client's calendar page. Too many times I want to change around workouts to different days but the current method is very time consuming. Training Peaks has this feature and it's awesome!

  3. Merge Workouts

    A feature that allows trainers to merge two workouts together, say combining a leg workout and an arms workout. That way, my instructions are already there and can be tweaked for the new client, instead of having to retype them.

  5. Add ability to copy and paste days on the calendar.

    If a client has the same workouts on Monday and Thursday they should only have to schedule Mondays and copy and paste all the workouts for that day into Thursday.

  6. Would love to be able to see multiple client info/workouts on one screen.

    We do a lot of partner training at our studio, but each client has a different workout, so it would be great to be able to see both clients' info on one screen, maybe have a split screen. I tried to have multiple browser tabs open, but that did not work.

  7. Export names, last workouts logged

    I would like to be able to run reports of my online training clients.

    For example, run a report that exports to excel with info like client first name, client last name, last session logged, last workout logged etc.

    This goes one step further than the dashboard and we would really help with bulk training

  8. Have the ability to use lbs or kg for specific exercises

    In the gym, we have a mix of equipment using lbs and kg. It would be god if we could the mixture of both.

  10. Allow customization for "body parts" in the measurement recording area.

    I would like the ability to change body parts on the Measurments tab. I.e., instead of having a girth measurement for a neck, I would like to be able to use abdomen, etc.

    Thanks!

  11. Integrate with LoseIt! (Meal diary/planner, Calorie counter, etc.)

    Loseit! is the next best choice from myfitnesspal. It is almost identical and has a killer android and iphone app that would make it super easy for clients to track their food intake. It even lets you see the macro (protein, fat, carbs) ratio that you are hitting on any particular day!

  12. Create ability for trainers to make WORKOUT LIBRARIES for easy searches at a later date.

    With the ability to make various libraries of workouts (categorized however a trainer needs, i.e. "30-min workouts" ; "Upper Body workouts" ; "Band/Bodyweight Workouts") a trainer can streamline their search for a past workout they created without having to scroll through a huge list of every single workout created.

  13. Ability to build workout programs without using client profiles.

    Trainerize is in great need for a workout program tab... Currently creating workout programs cost 1-3 dollars a month per program. This is such a basic feature that should be built in trainerize. I have well over a 100 workout program templates that I would like to freely build on trainerize but I can't due to the financial constraints that trainerize has put in place (i.e. having to use a client account for each template we create).

  14. Allow clients to print their calendar

    my clients want the ability to be able to print their calendar so they know what exercises they are doing each day without having to always access their profile.

  15. Ability to Automatically Generate Custom Workouts

    I would like the ability to build a workout program template for a specified period of time but have the ability to change based on the clients equipment availability and perhaps even experience level.

    The way this could be done is if:


    1. We had the ability to build workout programs.


    2. Within those workout programs we could select multiple substitute exercises for each exercises so if the original exercise was bench press and the client did not select bench press under the equipment filter then the program would automatically choose a substitute exercise and make the process of customization seamless.


    Also,…

  16. Make tracking bulk clients easier

    A single interface to overview all of your clients progress. It is extremely time consuming checking each clients progress weekly. All I need to know is if they worked out or not (accountability)

  17. Be able to add instructions to cardio activities rather than have to create tons of templates

    When adding cardio to my client's calendars' there is no option to add individual instructions for cardio activities. We don't want it as a workout template because we will need to change every week. Will it be an option in the future to add instructions to cardio?

  18. MindBody Appointment Sync

    Need to have the calendar from Mindbody sync with Trainerize. We need to have the ability so that clients can book in (schedule in) for a personal training session with a personal trainer using Trainerize phone app. At the moment clients in Mindbody have personal training sessions booked in Mindbody 6months in advance with a personal trainer. They get an email reminder from mindbody about the session the day before but are unable to change or book a future session on an app, (they have to do it via the web). If we have 100 Personal Training clients and 6…

  19. Change swim metrics to "Yards" and "Meters" instead of "miles"

    It's rare if ever that people swim in "miles." Make this system more user friendly toward triathletes and coaches of endurance atheletes.
