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!

  2. Compliance Percentage Displayed On Client's Dash

    A feature where every client can see their own compliance percentage at the top of their dash, with the ability for them to toggle between nutrition, workouts, habits, or all, via a drop down. Perhaps even with the ability to toggle between weekly, monthly, or all time compliance. Based on the program(s) they're currently running.

  3. "End of Month Report"

    I think it'd be great to have the system send an "End of Month Report" to each client with stats like:

    Total Workouts.
    Average workouts per week.
    Personal Bests summary
    Nutritional summary with average calories, carbs, fat, protein.
    etc..

    Most "online fitness options" do something like this as a way to give clients a feeling of accomplishment at months end. This would be a great way for us to show how we are helping clients get stronger and healthier.

  5. Not asking clients for their weight when signing up

    When clients sign up they have to enter their weight as part of their profile. I work with a number of clients who have body image struggles or a history in eating disorders so asking for their weight is really not okay and I have to physically tell them to enter 0kg in this because it's irrelevant.

    It would be brilliant if we could remove this or have this as an optional thing instead of compulsory

  6. 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…

  10. More metrics for “hiking” activity

    I work with a lot of hikers/outdoors people, and they like to share their mileage and elevation gain, not just the time it took to hike.

    Please add more metrics for the hiking activity.

  11. Having The Ability To View Where Clients Are Within Master Program

    I have a master program that currently has over 100+ subscribers who have purchased the program throughout the summer months. It would be nice to be able to view where everyone is within the Master Program on a Master calendar of sorts.

  13. I would like a suggested alternative exercise section

    I understand clients can go in and substitute exercises. But I would like to have a list of my suggested alternatives first. I sell master programs and I run into the issue of clients not having the necessary equipment and need an alternative I do not want to go in and build out a million different versions of a master plan to meet each individual client's needs. I would like a way for clients to substitute exercises with that I suggest in case they don't have that equipment.

    Another solution that might be a stretch is based on the consultation…

  14. Better Display for food brands

    Instead of putting the brand of the food on the same line (making it look like a very long run on sentence), it would be nice to have the brand displayed underneath in a lighter font color (like the serving size amount is displayed).

  17. Ability to track servings or portion of vegetables/protein through the day

    Right now, it's yes/no. It's better if the user could add a serving throughout the day to track their veggie/protein intake etc.

  18. Allow in-app sign ups and seamless in-app purchases via AppStore or PlayStore

    My business has a significant amount of people trying to download my app and they're blocked from signing up.

    Also, after that, they cannot upgrade to a paid plan in-app.

    We are ok with the app stores taking 15% of the commission as it outweighs the loss in business of people not being able to seamlessly sign up.

  20. Making the Workouts in Trainerize Available to Download

    The workouts created in Trainerize are currently available only on Trainerize. However, when a trainer creates their workouts, they want to have a copy so they may remember and use that workout later or use the workout on people who don't have the app. I believe it would be very beneficial to make the workouts/programs available to download, and they could be downloaded onto a PDF or even an excel sheet of some sort. The workouts to download would not need to include the videos on Trainerize, but merely the sets/reps/times/distances, etc. that may be included.
