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. Trans / Non-Binary Videos

    The current Male or Female video first is a very gendered approach to fitness. Part of deconstructing colonialism is rethinking how we present content. My suggestion is to either remove this feature or introduce a Non-Binary option (selected by default) that mixes Male and Female videos, and ideally, would have some core video content including Trans/Non-Binary models.

  2. more resistance bands videos

    There should be a resistance band video for Hammer Bicep Curls. And just more options for resistance bands exercises in general. There's only a select few to choose from. And it becomes hindering when my clients go on vacation. Thanks!

  3. Keep a timer option for timed based exercises.

    It would seem that if the exercise is definitely time based, I should be able to set a recommended timer for that exercise.

    Currently, if an exercise is Timed (Longer Better) or Timed (Shorter Better) or Timed Strength, we lose the ability to select a recommended timer with the exercise. We can only type in text with the exercise when prescribing it to a particular client or workout.

    If I can make a feature request, please allow Timed exercises to have an editable timer on them like standard Strength exercises.

  4. Stretch timers and ability for client to log time held

    My primary desire here is to have the ability to recommend a timing of a static stretch for my clients AND for them to log how long they held the stretch for.

    Trainerize’s current setup for Stretches is to “display only”. Which is crazy to me. Flexibility training is so crucial in a balanced training program, and yet my clients can’t log if they did them or not or for how long they did them. I have to ask them every time.

  6. Apply filters to exercise library depending on client tag

    We should apply filters by clients tags and exercises categories so that, for example, beginners won't see all the library with too difficult exercises for them or client won't see non relevant exercises like barbell exercises for yoga workouts.
    A client tag should give access to some selected exercises tags to allow them to build efficient freestyle workout depending of 'kind' of client.

  7. If you Upload an Exercise, Choose the Option to share with All of Trainerize

    If a trainer/owner adds a new exercise from YouTube, there should be a way to make it public to all coaches on Trainerize.
    I understand some trainers wouldn't want to do this if it's their own image, and that's fine, but if it's a generic YouTube video then why not? Think of all the time it would save, instead of every trainer re-inventing the wheel when an exercise isn't already uploaded.

  8. carb cycling cardio exercise

    I do a lot of training with clients for triathlons and carb cycling is very important. Having that as a cardio activity would help.

  9. Remove Pop-up when clicking on search bar in exercise library on desktop/laptop

    Please make it possible to turn off the pop-up that appears every time you click in the search window in the exercise library. Once you've seen it once, you don't need to see it again. It becomes super annoying to have to click it off every time you search for a new exercise. It slows things down heaps and blocks exercises on the screen. If there's a way to turn it off, please let me know, otherwise, please remove it as it detracts from the experience.

  10. Add jiu jitsu under Activities

    I am a trainer, and I also do Jiu Jitsu. It is a great exercise/activity. I am able to add it as an activity on another app... the list of possible activities is very small in comparison to others. Jiu Jitsu, martial arts, surfing, there are so many more details options that don't belong under general because that doesn't really help measure progress of other activities outside of the workouts inside the app.

  11. CHANGE "Medicine Ball Slam"

    A "Medicine ball slam" is incredibly dangerous. Please for the love of god change this to "Slam ball" ...|

    A medicine ball bounces, or breaks. It's not designed for impact work. The clue is in 'medicine' ball compared to 'slam' ball

  13. Delete option for interval exercises to have "side" instructions

    There are numerous exercises in the library that alternate sides (e.g. bird dog) that, when added to an interval workout, automatically show "left" and "right" sides. I usually delete one of them, but either "left" or "right" still remains and can't be deleted. Can you please fix this?

  15. Make available a list of all the exercises in the trainerize library to easily find the techniques

    I don't want to spend time scrolling down to check all the library techniques of having to guess the name Trainerize chose for the technique. I want to have a CATALOG to understand how Trainerize chose to classify the exercises and the names assigned by it.

  18. Tidy up exercises and improve selection functionality

    The list of exercises is currently a bit out of control, with inconsistent naming and duplicate entries.

    I would suggest categorising the exercises and creating an organised structure with the following hierarchy:
    - muscle group (legs/arms/torso/etc.)
    - muscle (forearm, bicep, etc.)
    - exercise name (bicep curl, tricep extension, etc.)
    - variations (green machine, cable machine, straight bar, etc.)

    (or similar)
    You should still be able to search terms and these would filter at all levels of the hierarchy, but the results should fit into the categories.

    Obviously a lot of exercises may be part of multiple sub-categories and that's ok,…

  20. Improve Exercise Filters

    In the Workout Builder, when applying more than one exercise filter we should only see results that have all of the filters. Right now we are seeing results that only show one or more filters. Not accurate.
