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. Allow other workouts/tracking while a part of a program

    It drives me nuts that if I create a program for a client it takes away all their other workouts and the ability to move a workout or track a non-program workout. PLEASE open it up so even if a client is on a program they can still track "other workouts" and have workouts not in the program be a part of their library.

  2. measuring overall training volume

    I would like to see some additional functionality with regard to tracking the total number of hours scheduled and completed in strength training, cardio, etc. Its tough to track total training volume when you cannot record minutes/hour completed.

  3. Increase interval timer so it can be used for longer cardio sessions

    The interval timer seems to only go to 5 minutes. It would be nice to used a countdown timer for running workouts like this:
    Walk/Jog Warmup - 5 minutes
    Run (zone 2) - 15 minutes
    Run (zone 3) - 10 minutes
    Run (zone 2) - 15 minutes
    Walk/Jog Cooldown - 5 minutes

    We also use it for cycling, which has intervals up to 90 minutes.

  4. Calendar Edit Functionality

    It would be great to be able to change a workout on the calendar without having to delete it and put in a new workout.

  5. make "recent activity" optional on the dashboard

    The dashboard loads very slowly - maybe because I have 400+ clients all doing stuff. The "spinny loading wheel" in the Recent Activity panel leads me to believe that's what's slowing it down. I can't switch to any other view (Clients, Messages, etc) until it's done loading. Would love to have an option to toggle this panel off to speed up my process every time I log on. Thanks!

  6. Create a Program for days, not weeks

    Allow a program to run for a certain amount of days vs having to have it last a whole week.

  8. Stats On Measurement Screen

    Provide: Age & Height when you enter body stats. This would help me when completing BF% using bioimpedance.

  9. Ability to download MFP journals (breakfast, lunch, dinner).

    We have clients whom are using MFP to create their food journals. Would like to see capability if use calorie link to have access to the food journal by day on the calendar. Easy way for the trainer to look at what they are eating if not on macro's - by clicking on the calories and bringing up the food journal in the calendar.

  10. Text only workouts

    The ability to post written text workouts with stats tracking feature. Some clients do not want videos. Also searching for videos to go with an exercise can take time especially if the videos are not well suited to your clients goals, are not the desired length, or do not have the exact movements you want. Having to import from a YouTube search is labor intensive. Having the ability to input a workout template with text and stat tracking would be a nice addition for those clients who are intermediate to experienced.

  12. Adjust the app to support dynamic type so that text can be made larger, darker or bolder for clients

    I have some clients that have trouble reading programs. A switch to support 'dynamic type' gives clients the ability to set font to their preferred size.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for voting for this feature.

    We have started work on making the key sections of the app respond to the phone OS’s font settings.

    Excited to share this with everyone when it’s ready.

    Please come back to vote and add new ideas at ideas.trainerize.com. Thanks!

  13. add a calendar option for the trainer to see what each of my client has scheduled each day. .

    I would love my own personal calendar to see in a calendar view what each of my clients have scheduled that day and then also allow me to schedule with myself what I would like to do on a specific day for my clients (such as remind so and so about body stats tomorrow morning or write so and so's new workout plan, and etc.). I think this would help me see more easily what each client has scheduled for that day or in the future. I just think a calendar would be a little easier and feel more organized…

  14. Introduce a section within the workout plan to gauge the intensity each exercise/workout.

    Personally I like to use the 'Reps in Reserve' (RIR) model. For each set I ask my clients to record how many more reps they feel they could have completed in good form. Very simple and gives me an indication of how hard the client is working. This is vital when progressing the workout (increase load/reps/ROM ect.) or even more importantly can help to identity if the intensity is too high and increasing the risk of injury.
    Maybe this isn't for every trainer but it would be nice to have the option to customise the workout information.
    RPE scale is…

  15. allow trainer to view as a client

  17. When you track a workout have the previous workout reps/weight show on the screen

    When my clients are tracking their stats their previous workout info doesn't show, so they can't do the workout and track at the same time since it doesn't show what weight/reps they did last time.

  18. Graduate a client - Export their data

    When a client "graduates" and completely stops training with you, it would be nice with a "Graduate" button which exports all his workouts (nicely, so he could print it), all his stats, meal plan, etc., into 1 PDF file which you can e-mail to them.

    The export could have settings to choose which training plan to export, or choosing what time period.

    The file could even have a nice front page, and a "About your trainer" section, a list of Personal Bests, links to social media, etc,.

  20. owner have access to all trainers messages

    Im the owner and while im adding new trainer (nutritionist) to my business is just fair that i can overlook whats going on and have access to their messages so I can step in if needed. I feel like once I sign a client into a new trainer i have no control of it anymore. please, let the owner have access and control everything under his/her business and new trainers only have access to whats assigned to them.

    Furthermore, the new trainer doesn't need to have access to other overall information like how many clients you have but only how…
