Coach / Trainer - ABC 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. Formulas for mesocycle programming

    I’d like to use IF statements or simple formulas for programming. Example: have squats increase by 2.5% per week, rounded to nearest 5 pounds.

    Example2: if soreness is extremely low, add 1 set to next weeks muscle group

  2. Disable autofill stats

    Clients are autofilling last weeks exercise numbers and it’s a bad habit

  3. Auto suggestions for exercise substitutes

    It would be great if clients were given a number of “suggested exercises” if they weren't able to do the prescribed exercise in their workout. For example, if a client didn't have access to cables for a cable chest flye, the substitutes would provide alternative exercises for the chest.

    It would mean that clients wouldn't need to remember additional names of exercises, and it would save time searching through the entire library for what to substitute in. They could just look, and pick an exercise they feel most familiar with.

  4. Allow master programs to be edited after they are in clients program

    Once we subscribe a client to a master program we would like the ability to modify the week in the individual profile without unsubscribing them from the master program.

    This has to be an easy fix, but currently it's taking us a huge amount of time to workaround this fix.

  5. More Filters/Search Options for "Workout Library" Program

    With the new feature of the "Workout Library" as a program. I find the filters very limiting for clients to find the ideal workout they want. Having a general search bar to search for workouts by name, muscle group, etc. Having filters to search by muscle group, style of workout ( regular, circuit, etc). As a client on my own app using this "Workout Library Program" I find it challenging to find the workouts I want. Also showing the workouts in a list view rather than a slide across, as you can't see the names, general workout desciption, before clicking…

  8. Have the ability to assign substitute exercises to any given exercise that is programmed

    Have the ability to assign various alternatives to any given exercise so if you programmed a smith machine incline chest press for example and its not available the client can click onto alternatives to take out any guess work and can choose something you've selected and can get on with their workout without feeling lost.

  9. TIME SCORING & LEADERBOARDS

    TIME BASED WODs
    I am a CrossFit Coach. We often program time-based workouts such as:
    3 ROUNDS FOR TIME: 400m Row, 30 Air Squats, 20 PushUps, 10 Burpees, 10 PullUps

    Can we add an input box for time scoring to be recorded?
    This needs to be recalled next time that same workout is performed so that progress can be tracked
    Can we add a daily leaderboard for athlete scoring and ranking within a group?

  10. Are portable dip bars worth it?

    Portable dip bars are versatile fitness equipment that allows users to perform various upper body exercises, primarily targeting the chest, triceps, shoulders, and core muscles.

    Design
    Portable dip bars typically consist of two parallel bars, either adjustable or fixed, that are sturdy enough to support the user's body weight during exercises like dips, push-ups, and leg raises.

    Portability
    These dip bars are designed to be lightweight and easily transportable, making them suitable for home use, outdoor workouts, or travel. Some models may feature foldable or collapsible designs for convenient storage and transport.

    Adjustability
    Certain portable dip bars offer adjustable height…

  11. VBT Prescriptions / Progression

    Along with adding a feature to be able to prescribe loads based on 1rm, Id like to be able to prescribe loads based on velocity (a la VBT, or velocity-based training).

    As a sport scientist, I use VBT and its and OBJECTIVE measure that can be great for fostering intrinsic motivation and intent to lift.This is a fun and easy way for clients to self regulate their loads while still attaining the desired training goal (i.e. strength, strength-speed, power, speed-strength, hypertrophy).

  13. Program Selection

    I propose the implementation of aprogram selection model within Trainerize, similar to features available in apps like Westrive, Everfit, and Movement.so. This would allow clients more flexibility in choosing and managing their fitness programs.

    Detail:

    Program Selection: Clients can choose from a variety of programs that best suit their fitness goals and preferences.
    Flexible Start and Stop: Allow clients to start and pause their chosen program at any time. This is particularly useful when unexpected events occur, such as illness or vacations.
    Program Resumption Options: Upon returning, clients should have the option to either resume their program from where they…

  15. workout builder script

    The biggest issue I have with the progression calendar is having to go into each field and update the RPE/ RIR week by week. I would love an option to create the workout builder in excel and import them into the workout builder with the progression calendar. this can be done easily with key ID's for the workouts and column attributes to include our own notes. once completed in excel we can just import into Trainerize.

  18. Change exercise order during training

    Add the ability to drag and drop exercises to change the order during a workout.

    When it's busy at the gym clients would like to change the order of the exercises because of the equipment they need to use is already being used by someone else. To keep things tidy and for the trainer to see in what order the exercises were performed it would be nice to have the ability to change the order and log the order of the exercises as well.

  19. The best treadmill for walking in 2024

    Treadmills are versatile fitness machines that cater to a wide range of exercise needs, from brisk walking to intense running. Specifically designed for walking, treadmills offer an accessible and convenient way to improve cardiovascular health, burn calories, and maintain overall fitness levels without the need to venture outdoors.

    When choosing a treadmill for walking, there are a few key features to consider:

    Motor Power
    Look for a motor with around 1.5 to 2.5 continuous horsepower (CHP) for smooth operation.

    Belt Size
    Opt for a treadmill with a longer and wider belt to accommodate your walking stride comfortably. Aim for a…

  20. Free Form or Combo workout option

    We use workouts that are often a combo of a regular and a HIIT program. There's no easy way to enter such a thing. Here's an example:
    10 x 10 Strict press ( same protocol as the rest of the week)
    15 minute AMRAP
    10 alternating single arm DB devil press
    9 Strict Pull-ups
    8 Burpee to target (shoot for a 6-inch jump)
    7 Toes to Bar
    rest 3 minutes
    15 minute AMRAP
    6 Sandbag over shoulder
    5 Sandbag Zercher squat
    4 Sandbag situps
    300' Sandbag Walk

    I would like to see a free form option or a combo option…
