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. Change the options for rest time in workout builder

    The options for rest time in the workout builder increase in 5 second increments for 0-60 seconds, but then jump from 60 to 90 seconds. I would like 75 seconds to be added as an option, as well as 2.5 and 3.5 minutes, etc.

  2. Ability to have multiple open training phases

    In the training program tab it seems like there can only be one open training phase. It would be nice to have an option of having multiple open so that the client could keep workouts organized like a training phase with all of their flexibility work, a phase for all their core work. And then from the trainer side, being able to still schedule workouts from any training phase past or present. right now you can only schedule things from their current phase.

  3. Overview of clients training program in a list view

    It would be very helpful for regular check-ins if you could see the client's entire training program at a glance (in a list view) and make changes to reps, etc., right there, like in the progression spreadsheet. But not just for one workout but for the entire plan.

  4. Add text option for notes on each exercise during a workout.

    Add text option in workout tracker for better notes for progression on each exercise, instead of only having the ability to put numbers. For example: heavy band, green band, short box, 24" box etc...

  5. rpe

    Having the number out of 10 corresponding to the RPE the client chooses at the end of the workout.
    For example, being able to see that "Somewhat easy" corresponds to 4/10.
    Some clients would benefit from a more quantitative appreciation of RPE.

  7. 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…

  8. Add comment field to activities

  9. New phase pop-up

    It would be great if whenever a client is starting a new phase that it popped up as soon as they enter the app that day or try to start their workout. Otherwise, clients are wondering why their workout is different or need an explanation when it is all explained under the phase and they forget to look at it.

  11. Allow Clients to share specifics of workouts not done using the app.

    I have quite a few clients who want to use my services for nutrition only. Would be nice if they. had a way to upload their workouts so we know what they are doing at boutique type places (such as Orange Theory, CrossFit, etc.).

  13. Add RPE targets/rating to each exercise and also to progression tables

    The ability to see how each client is rating an exercise speicifically and give them a target to hit on this exercise would be great.

    What would be even better is if you could also add this to the progression tables. So you might start someone on RPE 7 on an exercise week 1 and slowly through a training block move them up to an 8, then a 9 etc..

  14. Ability to track client's heart rate throughout entire workout/cardio activity etc.

    Currently the app only shows average, max and min heart etc.
    It would be GREAT to be able to see a full graph of their heart rate throughout the entire workout/activity.
    This can be pulled from any of the major phone's health apps.

    This would be great to be able to see their heart rate at certain times (spikes) / make sure they're consistent if training at a certain zone. It would pair well with the RPE and other stats.

    Thanks!

  15. Allow you to program weights as a % of 1 rep max in the progression spread sheet.

    This would be very practical for delivering an entirely online service and eliminating guesswork for the client whilst ensuring progression on the given exercise.

    For example, if you wanted the online client to perform
    3 sets of 10 @ 70 % of their last 1rm, you could program this in the progression spreadsheet as 3 x 10 @ 70% as opposed to now manually having to calculate the weight-based of a 1 rm that will most likely increase throughout the training block.

  16. More filters for Exercises in Freestyle workout builder for clients

    Clients do not always know the name of exercises, and it can be confusing for them to sift through so many while creating freestyle workouts. It would be helpful if clients were able to filter exercises by body part, experience level, and equipment type. I have had clients ask about this because they have used BodBot and like the filters for finding exercises.

  18. Remove rest after last set when building workouts or at least have the option to remove it

    When building a workout and adding a rest between each set, there is no need to have the rest included after the last set on the exercise.

    Example 3 sets rest 60 sec between each set. no need to have a rest after last set. Confusing to clients.

  19. Cardio Description and Notes

    We need the ability to add descriptions to the cardio workout. More than what is currently offered. Most plans give clients more structured workouts on time, pace, and heart rate. The description box that is available for resistance training workouts would work perfectly. Give clients the ability to add notes after their cardio workouts. More than ranking their perceived exertion.
