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. Add jiu jitsu under Activities

    I am a trainer, and I also do Jiu Jitsu. It is a great exercise/activity. I am able to add it as an activity on another app... the list of possible activities is very small in comparison to others. Jiu Jitsu, martial arts, surfing, there are so many more details options that don't belong under general because that doesn't really help measure progress of other activities outside of the workouts inside the app.

  2. Delete option for interval exercises to have "side" instructions

    There are numerous exercises in the library that alternate sides (e.g. bird dog) that, when added to an interval workout, automatically show "left" and "right" sides. I usually delete one of them, but either "left" or "right" still remains and can't be deleted. Can you please fix this?

  3. Disable client's ability to see the Trainerize Master Library of exercises through substitutions or additions

    Because the clients can see the master library through substitutions or additions, it puts the coaches and clients at risk. Not only can the clients try workouts that the coach did not assign to them and potentially injure themselves, the clients can also create their own workouts and potentially be able to go at it on their own, which defeats the whole purpose of using the app.

  6. BOX- Please add "Box" as one of the equipment options! Seems like a quick and easy add?

    Please add the equipment "box" as an option. Seems like this would be a quick fix!

  8. Unilateral tracking

    Have the option to track the left and right sides for unilateral exercises. Also, have the option to open more than one client at a time if you are doing group training.

  9. Add "Disc Golf" to the options for cardiovascular activity

    Disc Golf is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. There is an estimated 8-12 million people globally that have played disc golf. I'm requesting that it be added as an option alongside golf, table tennis, and the other sporting activities listed.

  10. Add "Rucking" to the list of cardiovascular activities

    Rucking is becoming increasingly popular as a form of cardiovascular exercise. It would be great to see it added as an option to select for cardio.

  12. calculate percent body fat from pictures.

    Construct a 3d model from the front side and back pictures. Use that 3D model to measure circumference measurements and input those measurements into a percent body fat meter. Halo app and styku already do similar calculations. Yes, the formulas are not the most accurate but that can be said for several methods, from calipers to bio-impedance. The idea is to make it easier for the clients and there are already photos that are inputted and a place on the app for body measurements to be placed. Just adds a 3D model and an additional formula.

  13. Allow clients to record the amount of weight they used for an exercise

    I don't know if this is a feature already, but I cannot find it. When a client completes a workout with dbs, kbs, bb, or resistance bands, they should have the ability to record how much weight they used for the exercise. I am designing programs and don't see where I can add that field.

  14. Sort Exercise Library by video type and whether it has a description

    Add in a sorting or filter feature to quickly find Custom Exercises that:

    • Have no video, have a custom video, or have a linked YouTube video
    • Don't have description text

    Often I will quickly add exercises from YouTube if it is something that I need for a client's plan but haven't filmed yet (and isn't available in the Trainerize Library). I then go back and fill in these exercises with my own custom videos when I have the time, and it would be nice to be able to sort and find these quickly.

    The same applies with Exercise descriptions. Sometimes…

  15. Add a "height" field for certain exercises

    Add a "height" field for exercises. For example: box squats (height of box used), elevated push ups, and even height of j-cups for barbell/rack exercises.
    This also be useful to store seat settings for various machines, like a seated hamstring curl. It's not easy to remember yourself!

  17. Time customization

    Something I would love to see is the ability to completely customize times/ time targets. From 0 sec to however long I need it to be. Not 10 minutes then 15. I want 11 through 14 minutes too.

  18. Tracking exercises

    This feature may exist, but it would be great to have a feature that "flags" exercises added into the next training phase that are being used in the current phase. For example, if client has straight leg deadlift, and I add it to the next training program, it will identify it as already being used in current program. That way I can modify the programming more easily without referring back.

  19. More combo movements like squat and punch

  20. Be able to graduate from a bodyweight to a weight exercise

    -the ability for clients to include amount of weight used, length, and reps, on every exercise (not only just one). For example:
    Hanging Leg Raise - you are only able to include amount of reps done, as a client, and not additional weight if applicable (if they were to do weighted hanging leg raises).

    Right now you have to use 2 different exercises
