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. auto fill workout data

    Auto populate workout data with the clients last personal best (repetitions and weight) when creating the clients training program so when the client trains there is minimal data entry needed by the trainer into trainerize. Entering the repetitions and weights can be slow and take the trainer attention away from the client, especially when there are back to back personal training sessions with no turnaround time to update after the session.

  2. Technique randomizer!

    🙋🏼‍♂️Movement randomizer feature!!!!

    Example: I’m building a pushing workout. I have bench press, dumbbell press, incline dumbbell press and military press... is love to have a feature where I could insert a randomized block that’s set to choose from specific movements that I select. Say after the four I want two random isolated pushing movements. So I could select tricep push down, skull crushers, Sphinx push ups, Bobineaux the head dumbbell extensions or lay pull over...

    each time the client open the workout it will automatically be set to one of those movements that I set to randomly select.

  3. Multiple day/week or month layout for exercise programming

    A table-button which allows for the trainer to choose how many days they choose to make at one time (ex. 3,4..6,7) and then the chosen amount of days would appear as columns and then the exercise library would appear above each column instead of on the right. A "workout title" box could appear at the head of each. Font and text boxes would need to be smaller to fit all the info but this would allow for some serious speed when making workout programs. Then when selecting a single workout option you can look at the progression over several weeks…

  4. Edit workout from calendar screen

    Allow the ability to edit a cardio activity or workout from the calendar screen. For example, if I schedule running and forget to add a target I have to delete the workout and add it back in rather than being able to click on running and edit. It would save time and improve ease of use when programming.

  5. Start Client mid Program

    When creating Training Programs with multiple plans/microcycles that are progressive/periodized in nature, it would be nice to be able to start clients on certain plans. For example, having a bodybuilding Program, but beginner starts at the very beginning while someone who is a little more advanced starts on the 2nd or 3rd mesocycle

  7. Have a Complete Programming View

    When I'm programming I like to be able to see everything I've programmed for the client over the last couple of months to get a big picture of what progressions I'm following etc. Right now I'm basically listing the exercises outside of Trainerize so I have a quick-glance option when I'm writing their next program, which seems a bit silly.

  8. Allow "Plans" under a Master Program be set for "1 month" vs only by weeks.

    For billing, it's much easier for plans to be monthly not just by a set number of weeks. I realize I can customize per client for whom the plan is "copied to" but this takes extra steps since for my purposes, all clients are billed monthly, not weekly. I see this same idea mentioned elsewhere and I voted on it, but I'm not as concerned with the syncroniztion with Mindbody as I am just for the sake of selling/billing on a "monthly" basis vs weekly basis.

  9. Add a generic "event" to the calendar

    Client check-in calls
    5k
    Zumba
    I would like to be able to add an event to someone's calendar that is related to their workout program, but that isn't specifically a workout I've built or "cardio."
    If there was a generic "event" option that we could customize - that would be very helpful!

  11. Do undulating periodization programs without having to schedule days in the calendar

    At the moment you can only DUP programs if you schedule the days in the calendar. Would be good to just be able to them with the calendar

  12. More customizable options on mobile app

  13. Please autosave our summaries! I forget to save sometimes and have to completely rewrite them...my summaries are in depth. Rewrite-no fun

    This is something I have been wishing for ever since I started. I write out summary specifically for each client's workout program. Sometimes I am scrolling down to look back over the workouts real quick and forget to push "save" in the summary before I click on something I see needs to be edited in the plan. Then I realize I completely erase my entire summary...and I haven't copied it so I have to try and rewrite what I wrote the first time. Is there any way possible to add an "autosave feature for the summaries?" That way when us…

  14. Importing and exporting custom workouts from and to PDF or Spreadsheet.

    Many trainers create workouts and templates in other programs and it would be nice to have an option to import them to the templates here. Also the ability to create different phases of individual workouts like Warmups, mobility, strength, cool down etc.

  15. Import existing program, and have app automate exercise videos matched to it.

    Similar to myfitnesspal with recipes, after you put in the ingredients, myfitnesspal pal matches it to their database and asks you to review before finalizing. If we could import existing programs, and have trainerize match with heir video library and allow for review, this would be a whole new level for this platform.

  16. Create Program Templates

    We should be able to create programs as templates then load to a client. It’s a very long process when you have to do programs for more than 6 people per week. The ability to do a 6 week basic program will also aid new starters in the gym.

  17. add the ability to include fitness classes in a client's program

    It would be great to be able to work a client's fitness class schedule into their plan, even if the class isn't with me. Ideally, this would include the ability to add a class as a Workout, and customize the location of the class-like if you want them to attend a certain studio, or to have the address of their class come up for direction purposes when its time for class. Since all studios are not on mindbody, having this option gives individual studios the opportunity to use their app to monitor client class accountability as well.

  18. Improve Program functionality for Copying to, or copying from

    • Ability to copy workouts to multiple Programs at once, i.e. in order to update or add a workout to all plans
    • Ability to Copy from a Program to a client from within client view - i.e. where it says “this client doesn’t have a program, add one” then below that there’s a link to copy to, but only from workout templates.
    • Ability to Copy from a Program to client(s) from the general client list ‘copy to/from’ window (again, currently the only 'from' options are clients or workout templates).

  19. Better Organization / Selectability Of Training Programs for Clients

    For us trainers that fully automate some training plans with the app, the current setup doesn't work for all clients. Trainerize 'Programs' requires a set time table and then moves the client on to the next 'program'. Please allow clients to see the list of all programs and allow them to choose a plan and plugin workouts as they choose. I currently have 5 training plans listed for them to choose, but it is messy since all workouts of all 5 training plans are listed - PLEASE organize training plans better for clients (i.e. client chooses Training Plan A ->…

  20. Ability to save programs developed by trainers.

    Currently there is no way to save or archive programs developed by personal trainers. If a program that is developed by a trainer and is deleted by mistake and/or in haste, it is permanently deleted. There is no archive or method to insure that what is deleted is intentional.
