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. Allow for video introduction to be put on website landing page

    Instead of just pictures on the landing page there should be the ability to add a quick 30 second intro video. Videos have proven to convert more views into sales

  2. Referral function

    Be able to have members refer you easily and collect points for a prize.

    A simple system. You choose the reward, how many points they need to get it and how many points each referral is worth. Then each member gets his or her individual code to give to people, which they can either enter when signing up or give to the trainer which then enters it manually during registration. On their profile they can see how far they've close they are.

  4. Download Progress Pics

    It would be great if we could download progress pics so that we can do before and afters for our clients

  5. Allow clients to create additional workout not in plan

    I have a few clients who go "off-plan" and add a workout to their week that I didn't include in their overall plan. If it's a cardio workout, they can add cardio-general on the calendar. But they don't have the same option for a strength workout (for example, a "leg" day). Would love to give permission to them to add a workout and track their stats so I can make recommendations. Right now, they text me and I have to go add exercises, sets, reps. Double work!

  8. Make the activities graph less confusing

    The Activities graph in its current state is a little confusing. For one the color for workouts on the graph is green when they are represented as blue in the calendar and cardio is blue in the graph but green in the calendar. More importantly it's odd that the "workout graph" is a graph of ALL exercises performed regardless if it was cardio or a planned workout yet there is a separate graph just representing cardio. It would make more sense to have 1 line for workouts (blue) and 1 for cardio (green) so that each type of activity can…

  9. Allow for graphing of multiple variables at the same time

    For example, I need to be able to graph (on the same graph at the same time);
    1) exercise load AND reps.
    2) BF and Lean mass

    I would also like to be able to determine the time frame (start date and end date) for each graph

  11. Exercise difficulty rating

    With a previous software that I've used, each exercise was rated on a difficulty level from 1-10, and when searching for exercises, you were able to sort based on difficulty level, which makes it much easier when trying to find exercises for extreme beginners, or extreme experts if necessary.

  12. allow for reporting of results to send to client

    I would like to have the ability to send my clients a report on their progress, that shows more than just one metric @ a time. It would be cool to show them a report with up to 3 or 4 metrics (EXAMPLE: waist, hip, LBM,FM & Weight ) with the dates of measurements as well. Right now they can only go online and view each individually on a graph. It would be cool to be able to print this out and give them to put on their fridge for motivation. I have used VirtuaGYM previously and that is something…

  15. I need an area to write a coaching plan for running and hit 'repeat'

    I have some Triathletes on my books and I would like to be able to schedule a cycle for them at a specific tempo and add in so speed work or intervals - same goes for running. But when selecting cardio, all I have is a small space to write a complicated programme and I end up adding it on dropbox! Defeats the purpose of me purchasing the software!

  16. Highlight changes that have been made when a client opens their app.

    When a change is made to their training plan, the client is notified via email, but when they open the app there is nothing to draw their attention to what was changed. My clients are requesting that when a change is made to their plan, the app displays where the change was made upon opening the app.

  17. Make it possible to hide workouts from clients dashboard/calendar until completed

    I wish you could have an option to hide workouts from a clients calendar until they are completed. I like to put 3-4 weeks of workouts in at a time and don't want my client to see what they are. Maybe it would be good to have a label that says Private Training, that only a coach can view, and when completed, they can then view it.

  18. Allow the trainer to set the weight each set should be preformed

    Allow weight sets reps all to be individual boxes instead of combined in the notes tab and allow the weight and reps to be modified for every set by the trainer

  19. Lifetime points for rewards or levels system to redeem for swag etc

    An automatic system that rewards milestones and achievements in Trainerize with badges or points, to keep clients motivated in their training. For example, no workouts missed in February might earn a consistency badge or a certain number of points.

    Points can be accumulated through the lifetime of a member to swap for swag or shakes

    For points for group challenges, please vote here:
