Allow me to define availability and let clients to self book/reschedule appointments
Trainers should be able to plot in when they are available and when they are busy, so that clients can schedule and re-schedule sessions easy.

Yes i agree, if clients could book own appointments based off trainers availability this would be much easier and simpler for the trainer & Client to manage.

If this feature is added, I am switching my company (4 trainers) to Trainerize next day. I landed on My PT Hub instead, as that is the ONLY online PT platform with this simple client self-scheduler feature.
Craig Chesham commented
A system where you set your working hours and can block hours as unavailable if needed. This then allows clients that have paid to select a time that they wish to train with you. You then get a notification whether to accept this time or not.
It would also be nice if this could sync with personal calendars so other appointments/holiday is automatically blocked off for bookings
Charlene Dowling commented
Adding a client booking calendar feature would be extremely beneficial. Having something where PTs could set their schedule with the option to block off certain dates/times would make the booking process efficient for both PTs and clients as a lot of coaches are currently using other calendar apps.
Adding cancelation policies, automated emails reminders and new client intake forms would make this app a one stop shop covering all the needs of a PT business.

If this app intergraded a booking platform, that would handle needs I use Square appointments for. Clients can see all your availability, choose a service (30min-60min), cancel, reschedule, and receive automatic customizable reminder texts and or emails for upcoming appointments or cancelled appointments. This literally takes so much time and effort off my hands and provides exceptional service to the client.

It is critical that the client self-booking also reflect time zones. We have clients in over 56 countries and 22 timezones so a reflective time feature is a must.
Yep I literally be able to use the appointments features until my clients can self book like they do currently with Calendly. Even an integration with Calendly could work but it would be really neat to be able to automate a message to client every other sunday for example " Hey FIRST NAME for extra support this week click 'here' book a coaching call or 'here' for a remote PT session." and then they can book it according to their calender.
Instead I will currently be sharing them links to Calendly booking that is linked to auto linked to Zoom account.
Antonio Manocchi commented
Right now I have to set up a schedule with Calendly then send the clients the link in their program to schedule an appointment with me. This would make a fantastic option so that members can know when we are available and book their own appointments. That way we can just check out calender when we get to the office and know who is coming in.

This would be a game changer. I use Mindbody because I do not have o micro manage all my clients schedules. I find my cancellation rate is extremely low because spots are filled fast--and I do not lose time and money chasing my clients for their appts.
Coach Nico commented
The client could see the availability of a coach and buy and book a slot for a 1hour private coaching
Jessie Casas commented
Allow clients to schedule appointments based on availability.
KBX Coach commented
Allow members to reserve spots for classes and group training. Add wait list option.
KBX Coach commented
Allow clients to reserve spots in group classes or personal training sessions. Wait list option.
De Bolton commented
Give clients the capability to book 1:1 sessions and to offer packages for sessions.
Burgess Patterson commented
This would be great. Currently using Appointy free so that clients can book based on my availability but to have everything within Trainerize appointments so that clients can see trainer availability (for whatever appointment type), would be the best solution.
I wish we had the feature in the Appointment tab to block off specific times that we want to be free time, be it lunch, or our own workout, or business building time.
Antoine Desrosiers commented
In the appointment section, it would be useful / save time if the Trainerize app had a feature that allows clients to book themselves a session online.
It would need to let the trainer set availabilities (ie. Within your working hours) and probably show the rules to book in and cancellation policy.
And even better, an automated message once a session is booked if its a new client with your personalised ‘New client form / questions / goals’.
Shannon Asiamah commented
This would save us admin time. If we could select when we are free/block out any time that they cannot book, then let them schedule in their own appointments. This could be used for clients who want to book in 1-2-1 personal training or for online clients who want to book a call
Joanne LeGal commented
I would LOVE this time saving automation! I will currently need to set something up outside Trainerize to make this a reality, but the more I can do in Trainerize, the better!
Christina Martin commented
It's great that there is now a calendar feature, but it appears that we cannot change our availability on the calendar for a client to properly self-book. I don't want my clients booking appointments when I cannot service them and it would be extremely valuable to be able to manually make preferred time-slots and time blocks of availability. This is where this app would actually be competitive to appointment booking software that's out there!
