Be able to subscribe clients up for multiple programs (individual + other programs)
Be able to sign clients up for multiple programs. They could keep their individual program and be subscribed to other mobility programs or challenge programs.
Thanks for your great suggestion! We’re marking this idea as completed!
You can now stack multiple programs. This feature is now in beta. To find out more, join our FB beta group:

Right now, clients can only be on one training program at a time. I would like to add some of my current clients to a group challenge. In order to do this, they have to sign in with a different email in order to complete their group training and another email to complete their personal training program. I really enjoy the motivation of including people in a group challenge through a training program since they get to keep each other accountable and challenge each other in the messaging thread but this can only be done if they are in the "Group". I need my current clients to be able to also easily see their personal training program as well and logging in and out for each program is a problem.

I do a month to month membership program (master program), but I also do a 6 week challenge throughout the year (new clients are put on the month to month program for the challenge) and sometimes during that challenge I have "extra" workouts. So in this case I had to convert them to custom and then I'll have to remember to go back and subscribe them to the master program.
Another example was during January, a lot of members were complaining that the workouts were hard to do because the gyms were packed. So I created January circuits (minimal equipment for the january rush). Same thing, I had to convert to custom program.
I assign the programs. And ideally, I would like there to be folders on the client side. Even folders within the master program so I could have them easily find "gym" "home" "challenge" workouts
To sell the monthly program and the challenge, I use Click Funnels and Stripe. Right now I only use trainerize for 6 week programs.

Would love to be able to have a group program running and then be able to assign additional programs to people. For example, if someone was in our CrossFit group but also wanted to follow a pullup program to do some extra work on their own, I would like to be able to put them on two separate programs.
Another example would be a nutrition program as well as a training program running at the same time.
The vast majority of the programs would be assigned by staff. That being said, we would probably also set it up so people could purchase programs and it would auto assign them.
Most of the second programs would be upsell programs.

1. What kind of multiple programs do you want to subscribe clients to?
I write movement and mobility programs for my clients if they have particular limitations within their movement or positions.
2. Will you assign the programs, or will clients self-select a program?
As the coach, I will assign the programs specific to the clients
3. How will you sell the multiple programs? Are you bundling them together upfront or the second program an upsell add-on?
My clients pay a weekly fee, the do not buy a single program, therefore it would be beneficial to program them ahead so they can see de-loads and their next training program ahead of time instead of waiting to the day it is due to start/before the current one finishes.
1. I would like to overlap short-term group programs(or challenges) onto their individual training plans without disrupting the current plan.
E.g. 30-day squat challenge, 15 days of mobility, etc.
2. It could be assigned by the trainer, or possibly bought into, where the client can select the challenge/program that they would like to overlay onto their current plan.
3. For me, the second program would be an add-on. However, I can definitely see the merits of bundling. Some clients might like to join a fat loss program, while also doing a mobility program. Or some clients might buy into a yoga/muscle-building bundle. Multi-program discounts might make that more attractive too.

Client purchases a membership for a monthly recurring fee, then gets access in app to a library of pre made programs made by us. They can start, stop, switch any program at their leisure.

I'm a clinical exercise therapist, and see clients in-person for active rehab exercises as well as provide online fitness coaching.
For my business, I encounter problems when a client is subscribed to a fitness program AND a therapy client, because they often have supplemental programs or exercises.
On the flipside, I run into this when I have a therapeutic client who then purchases or joins a group program. I have automations set up through zapier for online fitness coaching, and if an therapy client purchases a program it messes everything up and overwrites their existing program.
This would also help when I get a new client. I start them on a 2 week 'prep' program that is behaviour and orientation focused, but because their first session with me from the time of purchase varies, I have to either copy/paste to 'workouts' I've created, or I just don't bother.
It would be amazing if that 'prep' program would just carry on regardless of when I add their actual program.
As far as assigning of programs, it would be both assigned by me and by the client (who purchase it online, and have it autostart using zapier)

For my business, we sell ongoing programming basically subscription style. So it's a generalized plan. Recently we put together a 10K Run program for race season and a lot of clients expressed interest. But, of course, we couldn't have them on both programs. I see this most effective in the specialty/niche/add-on use case. Seems like most trainers sell some sort of generalized programming, but if someone wanted to add in even more core training, or booty training, or a pregnancy or post-partum program, etc.
So for us, it would definitely be an add-on. It would be nice for clients to be able to self-assign, but if it has to be manual assignment, that isn't such a big deal.

I’m a quarter the way into creating a 12 week program that’s 100% about behavior change. This program has videos and/or written instructions that are “auto messaged” everyday. I want to include already existing exercise programming however I have numerous training programs which makes it difficult to include both in a clients profile.
For me clients will not assign programs themselves but that would be an incredible option.
I would bundle different programs depending on what the client chooses.
Nicole Sanders commented
If we are doing a group challenge or group training with same program to see how varied the results are.
I will assign the programs.
These programs will be sold as an upsell addon
Absolutely need this. Allowing existing clients on a program to take part in a 21 day, 30 day, x week challenge without derailing their current programme would be brilliant. Allowing them to purchase another plan to take part even though they have a live programme running would be awesome. This is simple up-selling and allows us to keep them engaged with groups of others whilst still tackling their specific items in their personal program. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do this one.

I have clients subscribed to a month to month program. But throughout the year I do 6 week challenges with extra workout options. It'd be nice if I could add those to the client without derailing the subscribed program.
David Allen commented
I've been needing this feature ever since I joined trainerize several years ago. Can we please get this going?
Brittany Byrd commented
This would be very helpful so you could assign some pre workout "mobility" work rather than having to add it into each and every workout!
Mykala Smith commented
Yes! I run 30 day challenges and I have multiple clients who are already subscribed to a workout program that would love to do the challenges but can't because I cannot overlap their plans. It would be so helpful to allow clients to purchase and sign up for multiple plans.
Lesley Admin commented
We have a series of 'x' week programs. Each program is a succession of the other. It is quite painful that we can only set clients up as the one program ends and not for the entire series if they have paid.
So this feature would be so helpful!
Jose Pena commented
This will be great!
I have clients with individual training plans, AND group programs.
Rather than customizing a Program, is it possible to keep the Training Plan and Program separate, but still displayed on the client's calendar together?
Is there any more traction on this request? Overlaying - not replacing - a Program on top of a manual Training Plan would be fantastic.
