Allow trainers to log into the app and track their own workouts.
PLEASE make the app recognize that we as trainers, actually use the app for our own workouts as well. There is no reason we should have to use a different email account for our training and workouts than we use to log in to access our clients. It allows me to track my own workouts as the trainer, but it doesn’t recognize that I have “logged in” at all. Therefore, when you make new changes we all wanted, like the Apple Watch syncing, it doesn’t show up for us unless we log out completely, log in to our never used email account as if we were “only” a client. With all of the great technology this app uses, I don’t understand how this is not something we already have. I get that we have to take up a spot in our client list to record our workouts, but there should be the option to do so AS THE TRAINER/owner, rather than logging out, re-logging in, and then having to sit through initializing the app/icon/message/notification setting prompts, just to get to our own profile. And then after completing our own workout, when our next client comes in, we have to now log out of our account, re-log in advance the trainer, wait again for the app to load and initialize, set our notifications all back up the way we need them for our business etc. It just seems so redundant and this seems like a basic function. What trainer doesn’t use the app for their own workouts too?
*I posted this in your Facebook Habits group and the overwhelming consensus was that most want this to be a thing. It is tedious and just annoying to have to log out and log back in or to keep logging out workouts as if we are not in our own profile.
Thanks for coming to the idea forum and adding your vote to this idea.
We’re keeping this set to ‘Not Right Now’, as this isn’t something we have any immediate plans to implement.
As Trainerize is really built from day 1 for a client signing in to interact with their trainers and track their fitness.
However, you can use the Peak Fitness labs app and sign in as a client. This is the app we use to train our team internally but you can sign in with your credentials.
We appreciate you sharing your thoughts. We’re returning your vote to you. Please come back and vote on ideas.trainerize.com.
Yes and make it shareable to social media as well as to the Group messenger in the app so we can use our own work as motivation for our clients.

This would be very helpful. Creating separate accounts is frustrating, especially with multiple trainers.
Josiah Quintana commented
Still waiting for this one!
Kimberley Foreman commented
This would be amazing. I currently do this but it means I have to weigh up my own training vs bringing in another client
Hannah Tooley commented
Yes please :)

I am a trainer myself so I train my own clients but I'm also a client of another trainer who uses the Trainerize app to train me. Having the ability to switch between the 2 profiles without signing out/back in would make it much easier.

Get a free profile.
When you pay for slots one should be open for us as the trainer to add our own training

Totally agree. It would be awesome to be able to track my own progress without having to create separate accounts and login/logout every time.
Mykala Smith commented
yes yes yes!!! Please!

I am a trainer with clients in trainerize, but I am also a client of another trainer who uses trainerize.
So, multiple times, throughout the day, I have to completely log out and log back in.
It would be unbelievably appreciated if there were just a button to "switch programs" or "switch accounts" or something like that so that someone who is using trainerize in both capacities doesn't have to log out and log back in repeatedly.
Trainerize is an awesome app, but as a trainer I want to be able to track my own personal workouts without having to make myself a client profile. I have gotten to the point where I am maxed out on the number of clients I can have on my Trainerize profile so I had to archive myself (client profile) so I am now not able to use the app to track my own fitness progress. Is there a way that you can add a feature to the Trainerize app that allows us as trainers to be able to track our own workouts without having to take up a spot for a client profile. This would be very helpful and I'm sure a lot of trainers would agree.

Also so we can access it from the same dashboard/account and not need a different email account.

I use the app for both my clients and myself. It’s a huge hassle to always switch between the profiles. So it would be great to integrate an option that we can use the trainer mode also to track our own workouts
Able to switch accounts from trainer to trainee.

I suggested this a year ago....let's go, it's a good idea lol.
Chuck Gross commented
I am a client of another trainer, AND a trainer myself. It's a HUGE hassle to constantly sign in and out of the app and website depending on what I'm doing.
Aaron Ishac commented
As trainers having our own accounts just as our clients do is important to practice what we preach and advertise the features more to prospective clients as well as be on the same page as our clients and motivate those who need it.

There are similar services like Trainerize that allow you to set up a training program for yourself. Why can't we do this here? I love the interface, and when testing it out in the gym with my iPad I thought it would be nice to use this myself. As of right now, the only way to do that is to add an "alter ego" of myself with a different email and login. Why not allow me to switch from trainer to client? I could train myself, or maybe one of my other trainers could train me.
