Trainerize

We are continually upgrading Trainerize 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 trainers can upvote your ideas. The idea forum allows us to keep a pulse check on what our trainer 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 trainer 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 trainers and how it fits with the overall vision of Trainerize.

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 an option for SQL queries or exports

    I would like to query all our client data to allow for different repot types. I.e., this client performed this many reps of this exercise between these dates... or, what percentage of my clients are male/female and in this age group. Easy to do manually in the calendar for a few clients, nearly impossible when you have 50

    Hi everyone,

    

Closing out this idea as this can already be done in the app.


    While you cannot run SQL queries directly, Studio and above plans have API access so you can make queries and assemble reports the way you want to.

  3. Automation of emails

    It would be great if you could drip feed emails to clients with healthy tips etc. Not just the welcome email, but longer term emails that could go out to every customer on say the 1st, 7th and 14th day of getting the app?

    Hi everyone,



    Closing out this idea as this can already be done in the app.
 The auto-messages feature with master programs allows you to drip messages to a client.

    For sending an actual e-mail drip campaign, we recommend checking out Mailchimp, Aweber or Constant Campaign. You can integrate those with Trainerize via Zapier.

  4. workout tags

    please add the ability to TAG exercises and workouts in a custom way to suit my business. for instance I really need to have the option to tag workouts in a number of different ways like short, 10 mins, travel, build, speed etc...

    this would help me filter as i search through all workouts to find options to give to clients. i'm building my workouts and don't want to search through hundreds each time i edit a clients file.

  5. Group Area

    I create groups in Facebook. It would be much better easier aNd quicker if I could create a group in the app, and select clients. There they can share, connect and I can help them focus in voicing off each other.

  6. group clients

    Ability to categorize clients and filter them. It would be great to categorize clients with standard identifiers such as by gender, age, fitness level, or custom identifiers such as bodybuilders, runners, home gym clients etc...

  7. Make the buzzer on the timer louder so the client can hear it

    Very simple increase the sound on the buzzer so it's very clear to the client that the interval is over. Currently it's a low volume beep, so my client uses her phone timer outside of the app

    Hi everyone,



    Closing out this idea as we’ve made improvements to the way the timer audio functions last year. It should route through the speaker automatically if no headphones are used.

  8. Complete workout template

    I would like to be able to create a template for a whole workout routine - not just one training day. Or be able to save workout templates to a sub folder.

    If I write a 12 week program for someone, I would like to be able to have the full 12 weeks be a template in one spot.

  9. Quit "Find a Trainer" and trainerize.me

    Trainerize.me and the “Find a Trainer” feature, which creates a marketplace for trainers, makes us commodities and forces us to lower our prices to compete with everyone else.

    Trainerize used to be a service for trainers, not for clients to compare trainers to many others. It was so different from anything else. It was perfect!
    By offering trainerize.me / Find a Trainer, it makes Trainerize like thumbtack.com where people can just search for a trainer in their city online.

    Now, we can’t offer an app to our clients. We’re now “just a bunch of trainerize trainers”. What I loved about…

  10. Trainer Controls All Emails To Client

    My clients often complain to me about the amount of emails they get from trainerize. I tell them they can manage their emails in their account settings but nobody wants to do it. The trainer needs to be able to control who gets emailed what and not everyone wants the workout reminder!!

    Thank you!

  11. Have the option to make program templates not just workout templates

    Need to have the ability to create program templates not just workout templates

    If I could create my full programs whether it be 6 weeks 12 weeks or a year and adjust the workouts within each program when necessary to suit the individual clients needs would be very helpful and less time consuming of just having workout templates!!

  12. have somewhere to add client's height and calculate BMI

    There is no where to add a client's height! While I realise BMI is purely a guide, it is a useful benchmark. Please include height in client profiles. Thanks!

  14. Social Media Sharing

    When a client reaches a goal this creates momuntum and a boost of self-confidence. When a client feels good about themselves following a workout they are inclined to continue such positive behaviors. When i shout out and tag clients following their workout my clients feel a sense of accomplishment when many congratulate them on their workout. I would like for my clients to have the option to share their completed workouts

  15. Limit clients looking ahead in calendar,

    Be able to schedule clients workouts ahead of time by the day and they can't access the workouts till that day. Not upload the workouts all At once fro them to see it. This will not give them a reason to skip out, they would only get access to today workouts and the past workouts but no future workouts.

  17. Allow Trainers to add other/custom tasks to Client calendars i.e. "coaching call" or "start weekly challenge".

    When adding to a client's calendar allow an option to plug in a "custom" entry. This way as coaches we can schedule certain proprietary tasks for our clients that may not be a workout or body comp.

  20. Ability to Create Stand-Alone Products - PASSIVE INCOME!

    Allow trainers to create a product that a client can download automatically. With the information content like an ebook, but with the tracking features of Trainerize. I think clients would pay for this!

    Something like this:
    1. Trainer creates 3-month training plan, with general instructions, exercises, daily workouts, and progressions already in place.
    2. Trainer sets the purchase price
    3. Potential client decides to purchase the product and can pay online without trainer having to do anything
    4. Client now has access to the information AND tracking features of Trainerize for the entire duration of their program
    5. At the…
