    The current strategy is pretty bad.

    A lot of my workouts start with certain custom exercises and these either all use the same video or in some cases no video at all. As a result, all my workouts look like one of three things, a blank gray square, a cardio placeholder, or the same thumbnail from one single video.

    Being able to set a custom thumbnail for exercises is critical.

    Being able to set a custom thumbnail for workouts is also critical.

    Fine to default to current behavior but we need the ability to override.

    Also, if I assign a recommended weight on each exercise, Trainerize could auto-populate that number for each set on the client's end so the client has one less thing to type while working out. Only in the cases where they decide they need to use a different weight would they have to edit that field, which is no harder than filling it in from blank.

    I find this works fairly well in practice.

    It does underestimate bit (like 10%-15% in my experience) and I attribute this to (1) some fixed number that is counted per rep (and therefore not always accurate depending on exercise and form)… and (2) to the downtime experienced when going from machine to machine (and sometimes having to wait for a previous person using a machine to finish up).

    It would be trivial for Trainerize to instead overestimate each rep, assuming that a rep for any exercise is going to consume 7-10 seconds (about as long as the slowest *normal* rep I encounter). Then, account for an extra 90 seconds to travel between exercises; plus, add an extra 5 minutes per every 30 minutes estimated, to account for things like waiting longer than exported for a station to free up, going from one floor to another floor, using the bathroom, getting momentarily distracted, etc.

    That would result in a very accurate prediction most of the time, and generally come out on the high side. Clients would greatly appreciate knowing they came in under the estimated time most of the time!

    • As well, it means any client coming in over the estimated time is almost surely taking too long between sets or chatting/texting too much.

    • As well, it allows us, as trainers, to ensure we are not overtraining our clients by assigning too many sets or reps… which is a possible oversight sometimes even with the best of intentions. It absolutely helps to have an AI provide feedback on how long a workout SHOULD take AT MOST.
