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. Show macro breakdown per meal (not just calories)

    Make macro breakdown per meal vs just total added? For example - here there's are 2 meals added. Overview page lists calories, but once you have more than one meal, you can't see what made up the macros, or where they came from. If a client (or myself) wanted to see where the carbs were coming from (whether it be as an education tool or just to see what was carb dense), we can't tell what foods made up the total carb count and how much. Yes, it's on the single items info when it is being added, but trying…

  3. Self-Adjusting Cal/Macro Breakdown Per Item In Meal Tracker

    Currently there is only a cal/macro breakdown of each individual item based on the default serving size, but when you adjust the serving size, you're not able to view the update cal/macro breakdown of that item until it gets added to your daily total.

    I think having a self-adjusting cal/macro breakdown with each item in the food tracker that changes based on CUSTOM serving size BEFORE you add it to your diary would be most idea. Just like MFP.

    I think this would save our clients a ton of time and frustration.

  4. Ability to help client enter foods as a trainer

    Ability to help client enter food details from meal photo. In trainers app you could look at client's photo and add the food items to find out macros. That way if you are managing a client on your own you could even help track as a starter.

  5. Separate Meal Photos From Meal Tracker

    Let's be honest, clients who are taking meal photos likely aren't going to be tracking their cals/macros, and clients who are tracking their cals/macros likely aren't going to be taking photos of their meals.

    So for those of us who's clients are strictly tracking cals/macros, the current workflow of having to "skip" the meal photo option before being able to add a meal/item to their diary seems like an unnecessary, cumbersome step.

    I think having Meal Photos and Meal Tracker separate would be most ideal, or perhaps the ability to toggle Meal Photos On/Off while using the Meal Tracker.

  7. Hand Portion Converter

  8. Ability to specific number of portions of a client's saved meals

    The client is building their own recipe. So for example, if you made a soup at home and ate on it all week. You would create a custom recipe and add all the ingredients and the amounts. Then lets say that recipe made 1 gallon of soup, but you only eat 2 cups of it throughout the week. They would be able to log the portion they had and the total calories for the 2 cups. Hopes this makes sense.

  11. Ability for admin to hide MFP as an option in client's settings

    Business wants to move fully to in-app tracker and not even show the option of MFP tracking to a client. Admin should be able to turn on and off ability for client to see that option for food tracking.

  13. Rolling Macros and Fat/Carb slider

    Would be nice if we could have rolling macros. This was one of the key things that helped me and a lot of my clients succussed with counting macros through a different tracking app we currently use. What it does is assigns them their daily macros and if they go over/under on fat/carbs it auto adjust the rest of the week (7 day check-in periods) to account for it and as long as they hit their total by their check-in day they still usually hit their weight loss/gain goal for the week but it gives them a little more freedom…

  14. Loading full size images is very slow

    When a client uploads there food and I review the entry the thumbnails appear immediately. When I hold my mouse over the thumbnail it takes 10-20 seconds for the larger image to load. This makes things difficult if reviewing many photos. It would help if the full size images could load more quickly. Thank you.

  15. need more food info

    need to make nutrition labels viewable to the coach so we can see what the client sees for nutritional values, and may want to check labels on some of the foods that are there now for accuracy. Example Mahatma Rice has the wrong carb amount in the app compared to what is on the package. App says 3/4 cup is 36 carbs and package says 1/4 cup is 36 carbs, but neither state if this is dry or cooked amounts and this is very important when setting macros for a client's weight loss thanks.

  16. Automate so system adjusts macro goal depending on if client over or under ate

    When clients over eat or under eat, automate the whole process so the system changes the nutrition goal so the trainer is hands off and just needs to focus on motivation.

  17. Review meals in a table form

    The ability to collate and review a clients meal photos over say a week with options to breakdown further into say review client breakfast for week of 4th Jan. Then all those meal pictures come up in a table form that you could print off and discuss with a client

  19. Additional meals or missed meals tick box

    Ability for client to add in a food (or even a meal they missed) and to tick a box (either add to daily total or substract) so that the meal they enter is either subtracted or added to the nutrition goal set. This way if they are following a meal plan where macros are calculated … we can see if the meal they have had is on top of or missed. It might save them entering everything on the meal plan to track daily compliance
