Good option for delivery for online personal trainers

5 4 days ago New

Comments: Trainerize helped my online fitness coaching business manage and train clients with exercise plans and nutritional information.

Pros:

Trainerize made it extremely easy to schedule and manage client programs with built in exercise videos and instruction and plug and play capability. Clients found it intuitive and easy to use the app and get trained this way and it increased compliance as well.

Cons:

The software was a bit bulky to use with a high amount of clients and otherwise, there was not much nutritional functionality offered besides integration with MyFitnessPal which did help a lot. No major complaints however, the software works really well for use.

Does more than most fitness apps

4 last year

Comments: The great thing about Trainerize is that you can add your own exercise videos from your YouTube account very easily, which negates the worst aspect of Trainerize -- it's exercise selection.

Pros:

The ability to schedule messages, workouts, check ins, and progress photos is easy and intuitive.

Cons:

The built-in exercise options are lacking, and some of them are just unsafe exercises altogether.

Alternatives Considered: My PT Hub, TrainHeroic, TrueCoach and PT Distinction

Reasons for Choosing Trainerize: Trainerize automates nearly all the things I do as a coach. Once I set things up, it's super easy to focus on coaching my clients.

Switched From: Google Sheets

Reasons for Switching to Trainerize: Trainerize does everything average or above average. The rest of the competition does some things better, but doesn't do it all.

So Much Potential, Misses the Mark

3 5 years ago

Comments: I've tried 6 or 7 of the most popular personal training apps and decided to go with Trainerize. It's best at creating workouts quickly and easily, and has excellent client monitoring features. Unfortunately, there are still a lot of bugs. There is nothing worse than logging a whole workout during a session with a client, and then the app won't save it - losing everything. It has essentially forced me back to pen and paper.
The integrations with fitbit and myfitnesspal sound impressive, but they don't import activity data. Makes no sense. If you can sync some of the data, why not sync the MOST IMPORTANT data? I have people tracking their activity with fitbit or with other apps - but now they have to enter it one more time into Trainerize.
Customer service is frustratingly slow, it takes three days to get a response - even when you purchase an annual plan that promises "priority support" and a "dedicated customer service manager." The response will always be, "our team will consider it." Then nothing. If you want an app improvement, there has to be enough votes collected by the Trainerize community (which most users probably never take the time to visit) to work on it, even if the development team is fully aware of it and knows it makes sense. They remove features without warning. Before, when you created exercises for the app, you could link to a youtube video OR use photos. In many cases, it made more sense to use a photo (stretches/simple exercises). After taking weeks to create, edit and upload all these photos for my exercise database, they removed the feature and lowered the quality of my photos so much that all the user could see was a pixelated mess. Their response was essentially "Too bad, so sad." Without these (and some other) problems, this app would be unbelievable! But with it's continued crashes, it loses it's usefulness and can be more problems than it's worth. Might be fine if you're only using it for online training. Recommendation: It's still probably the best app, but I will revisit the others. DEFINITELY, don't sign up for a year - go monthly for a while and see how it works for you.

Pros:

Easy to use, easy to create workouts (and great flexibility to adjust workouts on the fly), many automated features, excellent client monitoring (including a new push notifications system).

Cons:

Crashes, losing data, won't sync what counts, requires client to have internet connection, poor communication from customer service that responds to, but does not solve, problems.

Hey Frank! Thank you for taking the time to review us and provide feedback! We are sorry we weren't able to get back to you sooner, we recently realized we were able to reply to reviews on Capterra and are now trying to get back to everyone. We are so happy you find creating workouts in Trainerize easy! In regards to the crashes, we are in the process of releasing a brand new version of the app (we invested over a year in rebuilding it from the ground up) that is going to improve the performance and overall stability of the app! If you would like beta access to try it out please email us at [email protected] and we would be happy to give you access! In regards to MyFitnessPal, we can only sync the data they send us. We are working on improving our integration with them to hopefully include more data soon. Thank you for your patience while we work to grow and improve Trainerize. - Team Trainerize

Trainerize for personal training is the best!

5 4 months ago

Comments: Overall I reccomend trainerize to all personal trainers to give them a great business platform

Pros:

Trainerize allows me to have all my online personal training in one place. I am able to check in with clients, assign programs, video tutorials, cardio and more. Daily habit tracking is a huge feature!

Cons:

There are some bugs in the app that happen often. Sometimes when I add a client workout or body Stat it will also add to other client profiles. It crashes often.

Training With Technology

5 8 months 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.

Alternatives Considered: TrueCoach

Reasons for Switching to Trainerize: I chose Trainerize over another product because it was recommended to me.
