Coach / Trainer - Trainerize

We are continually upgrading your fitness app 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 users can upvote your ideas. The idea forum allows us to keep a pulse check on what our user 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 user 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 users and how it fits with the overall vision of the platform.

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. Lower calorie 1400 menu options with more than 3 meals offered and lower calories per meal like 300 not 500

    Clients between 1200-1400 need more than 3 options like protein shakes or mini snacks. If the meals were simplified this may help as well as allowing trainer to add a pdf and meal plan instead of either or option.

  2. Have multiple tabs for different clients

    Have multiple tabs for different clients, so when you're training a group of people you can track everyone.

  4. Ability to choose where a meal gets added when adding a whole meal from discover

    Currently, if you add a Meal from the Discover tab, you don't have the option to choose where the meal gets added (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack). You have to go back to your dashboard and edit and change it.

  6. Selecting billing start date.

    I've been with several trainer/fitness programs and the majority of them allow the trainer to select their own billing start date, not merely when the client signs up. This should be a standard feature. Having clients wait till the first of the month is pretty rediculous and is not a professional business solution.Please, please, please give us trainers, business owners the ability to sign up clients at any day and choose a billing start date.

  7. Not enough foods, not easy to access

    My clients are saying that they cannot record simple things like a tsp of butter, or 25g of cheese and the diary doesnt have very many options to choose from. They are also saying it would be better to have a button that takes you direct to the add food/scan barcode option as they have to keep clicking through things to get to it. I would really like to get rid of using my fitness pal for my clients and have everything in the one app, but this doesn't seem possible until the in app tracker is just as efficient…

  8. Recipes need gram per weight serving size

    Instead of recipes just saying 6 servings, it would be extremely useful if the serving size was in grams. This would make shopping and meal planning and customizing much easier for the client.

  9. Add the ability to add weight for banded exercises

    Many brands have weighted bands. With as many home workouts occur, please allow the ability for clients/trainers to input the weight of bands that the client uses/should be using.

  10. Make Freestyle Workouts made in the calendar Duplicatable

    Right now if you make a freestyle workout directly in the calendar on a mobile device, there is no way to duplicate it, share it, or add it to a program after. In order to do this, you must go back in and recreate it all over. I think it would be a great idea if after you make a freestyle workout directly in a calendar you could go back and share it to another clients program, or even save it to a mater program.

  13. Longer videos in the attachment section of the client's profile

    In the attachment section of the client's profiles, there is a limit of around 8mb (1 minute max, sometimes even less, 50 seconds or so) for video uploads. This section would be really useful for any trainers that want to upload mobility tests that clients have done to track their progress. This way the trainer can track how the client has progressed from the start. This is the same for any exercises that the client may have had issues with. They can be uploaded at the start, be worked on with the trainer, and then upload new videos of the…

  14. Allow select clients to access all of the smart meal planner recipes (regardless of meal plan)

    Not all clients want a meal plan, but it would be great to offer the recipes in the smart meal planner in a kind of "on-demand" style program that shows up in their app or something similar.

  15. Enable syncing of body weight from Apple Health to Trainerize

    Given that there's people out there that have digital scales other than Withings that automatically send their weight to an app that either syncs with Apple Health or Apple Health directly, and the fact that most other things can be synced from Apple Health to Trainerize already - even unnecessary things like blood pressure and cycling distance, it shouldn't be so hard to allow syncing of body weight as well. Especially since body weight is likely one of the most important markers for most clients & coaches.

  17. Ability for clients to select easier/harder exercise (progression or regression)

    Ability to add regressions and progression. So clients can progress an exercise to a more challenging version, or regress to an easier version by themselves, without having to think about the right substitution.

  18. Schedule tasks/habits or activities for specific times of the day

    It would be nice to be able to schedule reminders for different tasks, habits or activities for different times of the day. This is a feature I've seen in PT Distinction and it's actually a feature used by many Calendar Apps.

    At the moment, in Trainerize you can only schedule Private Messages for different times of the day. All other stuff on a client's calendar: Habits, Workout, Cardio, Photos and Body Stats only have a daily reminder which is set for a particular time of the day (Default is 8AM I think and only the clients can change this daily…

  19. Exercise Notes

    Recommend a notes section for any exercise when building a workout. This allows the trainer to add modifications, options, and safety tips that the client can use inter-workout.

  20. Exercise Flagging by Clients

    Exercise Flagging - When a client wants to change an exercise, he/she can flag the exercise and the trainer sees all flagged exercises for each client in the dashboard so he can easily change or modify the exercises.

    Another example, a client needs additional instructions on a particular exercise so he flags the exercise as "Require more information" or something similar.

    This would make our life as Trainers much easier. At the moment the only option is to have clients leave comments after their workouts, but this means that we have to read every note of each workout. I do…
