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. cardio note

    When adding cardio workouts on the calendar, I would like to be able to add details about the cardio. Such as how far or how long a client should run, cycle, swim, etc. for. This would make this feature far more useful.

  2. Ability to restrict trainers so they cannot edit other workout templates

    So I'm looking at bringing on an apprentice - allowing me to train more clients through trainerize.

    I would like to be able to add the new trainer under my trainerize account. However, I would like to be able to restrict him so:
    Option 1) He can view all MY workout templates, but not edit them
    Option 2) He cannout veiw my workout templates, and can only see what he builds and what I share with him.

    At the moment, If i add a trainer under my account, he can go into workout templates and see all my programs... then…

  4. add macros without a meal plan

    I noticed I have to upload a PDF meal plan before I can enter the calories/macros. Is there a way around this, or maybe a future update where one can go straight to entering a macro goals instead of uploading anything?

  8. Allow access to a clients file by multiple trainers

    At my facility we have multiple trainers training each client, I need to find a way to access a client’s file by two different trainers without the need to change the client’s “trainer” each time.

    Possibly simply allowing each trainer access to simply make the changes to the client’s trainer themselves would be an idea?

  9. Ability to mass send auto messages with all your clients calendars

    Having a page that you can write an auto-message for all clients but have each client listed so you can choose which date you would like to put it in their specific calendar

    I have weekly education for clients scheduled as auto-messages but depending on when my client starts, will depend on what days I need to schedule that specific education message for.

    Instead of writing an individual message in each clients account and exiting to get to the next client, it would save a lot of time to have the ability to click into all clients calendar on one…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. Option to turn off in-app messaging for each client

    Right now there is 2 options when making a new client.

    1. Trainer has full control of app and client can't login(without sign in)
    2. Trainer and Client have full access to app(with sign in)

    Why not add a 3rd option

    1. Client can login and use most of app for training and nutrition with no interaction with trainer or no in-app messaging. This would allow a client who has experience but only wants some direction through an assigned program and instructional videos. It could go farther with the ability to add price tags to additional features within the app (ex. $5 dollars…

  14. Add a stopwatch function - Allow the timer to start from 0 and go up

    Hey.
    So sometimes I want to track how long it takes me to do something. I would love to be able to use the Trainerize app to do this, but the app timer only goes down.
    Is it possible to add the ability to use the inbuilt timer to function like a stopwatch - So I can press start and then end, rather than counting backwards.

    Also - sometimes I need to enter this time into the program I use, but the input box only measures seconds, it would be great if the timer had a total second count so…

  16. Cancel payment -> Deactivate client.

    When a payment plan is cancelled in stripe on a specific date, deactivate that client in trainerize!! We do a month to month program and we have to add a note on a calendar to deactivate a client on a certain day and do it manually.

  17. Improve Running Stats

    My specialty is Running and it would be great to add more fields to this type of cardio, so personal trainers who are also Running Coaches, like me, can use just one app instead of two like Tranerize and for example TraningPeaks.

    Important fields that could be added are: Pace (Average and Max) and Heart Rate (Average and Max).

    Thanks in advance!!!

  20. 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
