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. Show macro breakdown per meal (not just calories)

    Make macro breakdown per meal vs just total added? For example - here there's are 2 meals added. Overview page lists calories, but once you have more than one meal, you can't see what made up the macros, or where they came from. If a client (or myself) wanted to see where the carbs were coming from (whether it be as an education tool or just to see what was carb dense), we can't tell what foods made up the total carb count and how much. Yes, it's on the single items info when it is being added, but trying…

  3. Self-Adjusting Cal/Macro Breakdown Per Item In Meal Tracker

    Currently there is only a cal/macro breakdown of each individual item based on the default serving size, but when you adjust the serving size, you're not able to view the update cal/macro breakdown of that item until it gets added to your daily total.

    I think having a self-adjusting cal/macro breakdown with each item in the food tracker that changes based on CUSTOM serving size BEFORE you add it to your diary would be most idea. Just like MFP.

    I think this would save our clients a ton of time and frustration.

  4. Separate Meal Photos From Meal Tracker

    Let's be honest, clients who are taking meal photos likely aren't going to be tracking their cals/macros, and clients who are tracking their cals/macros likely aren't going to be taking photos of their meals.

    So for those of us who's clients are strictly tracking cals/macros, the current workflow of having to "skip" the meal photo option before being able to add a meal/item to their diary seems like an unnecessary, cumbersome step.

    I think having Meal Photos and Meal Tracker separate would be most ideal, or perhaps the ability to toggle Meal Photos On/Off while using the Meal Tracker.

  5. Ability to help client enter foods as a trainer

    Ability to help client enter food details from meal photo. In trainers app you could look at client's photo and add the food items to find out macros. That way if you are managing a client on your own you could even help track as a starter.

  7. Easier for clients to add food to the diary:

    a quick add button on the main page to add food to the diary; it would be great if they could just use this app for tracking food, but the feedback im getting is that my fitness pal is so much easier to add food to, on this app they have to go through lots of options instead of just being able to click once and be on the add food/ scan barcode section.

  8. Copying Meals from Previous Days

    When my clients eat the same thing a few days in a row they can copy and paste. However it is not letting them delete their notes. For example my client ate half of her breakfast yesterday and added in her comment below breakfast that she half. This morning she ate the same breakfast but ate all of it. When she copies the breakfast from yesterday to today it doesnt let her edit her comment.

  9. React to Client Hitting Daily Nutrition Goal

    I'd like to be able to react to the notification I receive that a client hits their daily nutrition goal. Currently you can only react when they add a meal, but it would be far easier to "like" that they hit the goal for the day instead of "like" 6 meals that they've added!

  11. A dashboard for the trainer to see an overview

    In the Meal Tracker portion that I see as a trainer, I wish I could view all of their food pictures for the past week or month. Just like you can view the macros and calories via MyFitnessPal in the progress tab under nutriton graphs. If you added another tab to progress that uploaded all their photos with the date then you could click on each one from there to get the food stats if they uploaded that.

  12. Separate custom meals from Trainerize meals

    The new nutrition updates have been extremely helpful, particularly the ability to add my own Foods and Meals in the database. Just a small change that could make things much easier for the clients is when they click on the "discover" tab, Instead of seeing all of the Trainerize meals mixed in with my meals, they will only see MY meals, with an option to look at the Trainerize suggestions if they would like to.

    I think the Trainerize meals are GREAT and very helpful, however many of them look a little "daunting" as they call for a lot of…

  13. Hand Portion Converter

    have a hand portion to grams+calories converter: 1palm protein = 30-50g/150cals, 1 thumb of fat = 9-15g, 20cals

    AS WELL as be able to include photos to ensure client is accountabale and correct.

  14. Ability to specific number of portions of a client's saved meals

    The client is building their own recipe. So for example, if you made a soup at home and ate on it all week. You would create a custom recipe and add all the ingredients and the amounts. Then lets say that recipe made 1 gallon of soup, but you only eat 2 cups of it throughout the week. They would be able to log the portion they had and the total calories for the 2 cups. Hopes this makes sense.

  15. Ability for admin to hide MFP as an option in client's settings

    Business wants to move fully to in-app tracker and not even show the option of MFP tracking to a client. Admin should be able to turn on and off ability for client to see that option for food tracking.

  19. Rolling Macros and Fat/Carb slider

    Would be nice if we could have rolling macros. This was one of the key things that helped me and a lot of my clients succussed with counting macros through a different tracking app we currently use. What it does is assigns them their daily macros and if they go over/under on fat/carbs it auto adjust the rest of the week (7 day check-in periods) to account for it and as long as they hit their total by their check-in day they still usually hit their weight loss/gain goal for the week but it gives them a little more freedom…

  20. Not enough foods, not easy to access

    My clients are saying that they cannot record simple things like a tsp of butter, or 25g of cheese and the diary doesnt have very many options to choose from. They are also saying it would be better to have a button that takes you direct to the add food/scan barcode option as they have to keep clicking through things to get to it. I would really like to get rid of using my fitness pal for my clients and have everything in the one app, but this doesn't seem possible until the in app tracker is just as efficient…
