Great Software

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: I love the app and think it's a great concept. There's lots of room for improvement. I've been using it for about half a year now and I'm getting more used to it. But it wasn't too easy to figure out initially.

Pros:

1. I like the timers for the circuits and the rests. 2. I like the ease of creating the workouts. 3. All the video demonstrations are great. 4. The automated messages, reminders to workout, ability for clients to check-in. 5. Data! Weight charts, measurements, progress pics, tracking stats 6. Love how you can deactivate clients without having to delete their data. 7. The daily recap sent to email. 8. Ability to upload meal plans

Cons:

1. I don't like how you can't modify a program from your phone. There are a lot of things you can't do from the phone and have to be at a computer to do. 2. It'd be nice to link the Apple Watch. 3. The check-in and start now is confusing to my clients. There should be one button to start the exercise and that should automatically check you in. 3. It would be nice if there was a fast forward or a skip for the circuits, just in case they need to skip an exercise. Maybe they're injured or for some reason can't do that one. Instead of waiting until the time is up, they can move on. 4. It would be cool for my clients to be able to watch the demo video during the circuit. Instead they have to pause the workout to watch the video. It would be great it the video played while the time continued so they can do the exercise while watching the demo video. 5. Should be a way to add drop sets or a variation of reps. 6. Would be cool to keep a client subscribed to a program and still be able to customize one or two things on their program without unsubscribing them/converting to custom plan. 7. Small issue, but I'll still mention it: on the newer iPhones, it's hard to fast forward the demo video because the slider is very low. The exercise doesn't start until he explains it so usually 5-10 seconds later and most people just want to get to the demonstration part. 8. Inability to send video over the messaging app 9. Would be nice to be able to load multiple meal plans

Hey Jacqueline! Thank you so much for your review and feedback! We are so happy you like the ease of creating workouts and tracking your clients progress in Trainerize! Good news, we will be integrating with the Apple Watch soon. We are also going to implement a feature that allows clients to skip exercises in interval workouts! Stay tuned :) - Team Trainerize

Former Trainerize Supportor

4.0 4 months ago

Comments: I loved Trainerize at the beginning, I was a part of as many beta tests as I could. I was always on their FB page trying to help new users out. As time went on, I could no longer excuse the increase of bugs the software was having. When TZ became a part of ABC and ABC wanted to rebrand everything. It seemed like the bugs got worse. I was ready to move on.

Pros:

Trainerize was the first software I used to train my clients outside of Apple Numbers. I loved that each client could have their own section of the app and everything was saved to them via their profile.

Cons:

As Trainerize grew and they become part of the ABC family. The shift to nutrition became a main focus and the training aspect fell behind. Neither section was working very well after awhile, which left the software riddled with bugs.

It helps me get myself motivated to workout

5.0 last week New

Comments: I have a love hate relationship. I enjoy it some of the days, but if I have a large meal with multiple things, it becomes difficult to track and go through all of the food. It would be great to have more basic options, vs only purchased food or meal from particular restaurants. What if someone makes a meal at home? Isn't there a standard size for a chicken parmagiana anywhere?

Pros:

I enjoy the communication between myself and my trainer through the app. It helps motivate and make adjustments. I think that as I use this app, I learn to get better with it.

Cons:

The standard preloaded messages from my trainer, I can tell it's not the person I typically work with. I don't love how it can be very difficult to change from 1 cup, to 1/2 a cup of whatever the food is that I'm eating. My trainer has told me to track all of my food, the app doesn't make it easy for this.

Good for programming, misses the mark entirely for nutrition

3.0 last year

Comments: Best comprehensive app I've found. But for straight programming I would go with TrainHeroic, and for straight nutrition I would use Google Sheets.

Pros:

The programs are easy to build, and the progression builder is very helpful for building out multiple week programs with overload.Client onboarding is simple, and you have the ability to customize intake forms, messages, etc.Easy to add your own exercises with videos. Built in library is extensive.Easy to make supersets and add rest periods.

Cons:

When it comes to nutrition coaching, I've yet to find ANY app that works as well as the google sheets I created. There's no history of what the previous week's macros were. The app doesn't let you select a calorie level and then autopopulate the macros, you have to input macros until you get to the calories you want. There's no way to select a protein requirement (i.e. 0.8g/lb, 1g/lb, 1.2g/lb etc) or a carb/fat ratio. You only have preprogrammed tolerances of 10 or 20 or 30% so good luck coaching a bodybuilding client where you need +/- 2%.There's no charts at all correlating calories, BMR, body weight, etc.And then the "meal planner" that they charge you $45/month for is a complete joke. You can't set it to a client's individual goals. You have to use pre-programmed calories and macro ratios. There's no ability to deselect a wide variety of foods (just some basics like gluten or dairy.) There's no ability to select only certain foods. Most meals take 30 minutes or more to prepare. I've found it to be completely useless.The goals and habits are ok, but they can't link to any metrics, they have to be updated manually to show any progress, so it's all completely arbitrary.When it comes to programming, there's no way to program drop sets. Also, the instructions for the training week do not automatically come up when a client starts a session. I've had to go tell each client individually where to find instructions.

Training With Technology

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I really enjoy using Trainerize, however I believe connection is key between a coach and client and would like to see the communication experience enhanced.

Pros:

My favorite part about the software is the analytics Trainerize provides after each workout.

Cons:

My least favorite part about the software is the communication, I would like voice reply or video reply to be included as a standard feature.
