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!

  2. Client able to “star rate” workouts

    I think it would be a great way to get some feedback but more important be able for everyone to see the star rating of a workout. So they can say, wow this workout’s is 4 out of 5 rating. I want to try it out!

  3. Countdown

    Allow a countdown/timer in the set when the client starts the workout

    For example I sometimes have clients to a mix of timed work and reps and it would be nice if when we enter a time for an exercise that there is an automatic countdown like there is for intervals

  4. Offer swap for alternate exercises for situations where equipment isn't available

    For instance, if the fly machine is taken, give the client the ability to toggle an alternate which would display DB flys (or whatever I choose to offer)

  6. Ability to create "Favorites" exercise folder or filter.

    It would be great to put certain exercises into like a Favorites category or database. The exercises I use the most so it's easier to look through.

  7. Change swim metrics to "Yards" and "Meters" instead of "miles"

    It's rare if ever that people swim in "miles." Make this system more user friendly toward triathletes and coaches of endurance atheletes.

  10. 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.

  11. Custom Exercise Measurements/Types

    Right now we have a few exercise types to choose from. Example:
    - Strength: track REPS and WEIGHT
    - Endurance: track REPS

    But what about when we need to track something else to see progress? Example, pseudo planche pushup. This is an exercise that is progressed by leaning further and further forward to increase resistance. So I would want to track REPS and INCHES.

    Some other examples:
    - incline pushups: track hand height from the ground.
    - incline rows: track hand height from the ground or body angle.
    - step up squats: track height of step
    - resistance band exercises:…

  12. MORE AT HOME WORKOUTS

    We are all stuck inside without a gym, most of our clients only have limited equipment. I have looked through every exercise and you guys do not have some very basic exercises that can be done with a band. Lat Pull down tricep push down, the list goes on. We're going to be stuck in this horrible situation for a while until a vaccine is created. You guys have to adapt to at home exercises. I realize that i can just put notes in for the client but so many need a visual, like a said you must adapt like…

  14. Free text option to the carido listing

    add 'Other' as an option with an open text field to the cardio list. This will allow users to add their own activity which may not be included in the list.

    Keep up the great work!

  15. Redo your Kettlebell videos

    I've noticed that some of the kettlebell exercises (Kettlebell cleans in particular) in your video library are being improperly performed. Sometimes in a manner that if replicated by a client could cause injury. I know that I can make my own videos and do not need to use the ones provided. However, when providing exercise demonstrations as part of the service said exercises should be demonstrated properly. I feel that Trainerize has an obligation to provide correct exercise demonstrations and by not doing so it hurts your credibility as a "Fitness Platform".

  16. Sort exercises

    Be able to sort exercises into muscle groups. For example if I want shoulder exercises, I choose shoulders and then I can choose from the list or being able to sort it by category for example lower body exercises, upper or abs.

  18. Training phase with progressions printable

    Being able to print a training phase with all the progressions included. Compact but easy to see all weeks over one or two sheets. It could look much like the progression editor.

  19. Replace/Add new upper body foam rolling exercises

    I want to do mobility workouts for my clients and for the foam rolling the form is worse than horrible. For some of them the person demonstrating rolls all over his low back. And for other, the "chest foam rolling", couldn't be worst, the guy rolls from his armpits all the way down his chest, and first, that's not how you roll your pecs, and second, that is no possible to do for a woman for obvious reasons. I'll have to film my own videos for this. Please, please, replace those videos or just delete them for avoiding someone using…

  20. Progressive overload calculator

    The ability for the client or coach to calculate their new PB’s for volume and weight so they can accurately implement progressive overload for muscle growth and strength

    Eg if the Clinet beach is 100kg - 10 we want the app to calculate what their new pb should be each week in order to induce progressive overload
