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

Overall: 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: Ease of use, integrations, the MFP integration honestly is everything and I worked directly on this so I'm so happy that it has come out the way that it did

Cons: Wish some of the branding looked a bit better...I might have also not sent the most optimal files. I also wish that messages from clients and to clients were received as better notifications. I don't notice messages from clients until I am inside the app and I am assuming they don't see mine until they log in. Perhaps I'm missing a notification thing here but I just wish messaging was a little more noticeable. Clients might not want messaging going thru all the time, but I certainly would like to receive messages from them right away.

Overall: I have worked with Trainerize for about a year and a half now, and it's been a great relatioship. I have gotten to know the support staff in the executive department quite well, as well as the other staff on the technical side, and one person on the customer service side. Everyone at Trainerize is about making the online fitness experience better for both the professional and the end user clients. It was a pleasure getting to organize the initial conference calls with the executives at Trainerize and the executives at Under Armour Connected Fitness to make the MyFitnessPal integration possible. I am very proud of this addition and my part in it, because it means that thousands of trainers across the world, and probably hundreds of thousands of clients now have a way of managing nutrition in real time.

End of the day, it's all about making things better, and Trainerize is at the forefront of that movement. Pleasure to be associated with them, and I look forward to a lot more success together in the time to come!

Recommendations to other buyers: Not really...I'm sure it will only keep getting better and better over time.

Pros: I have been using Trainerize for over 3 years. It has helped me build my business. Being a personal trainer my wife and I were able to move everything online vs in a gym. Freeing us to train more people and in less time. We can create programs, see the client's activity level, see how often they are working out. Trainerize also has a built-in messenger which is great since it is separated from our personal text messaging. I looked into and tried other programs similar to Trainerize but Trainerize, in my opinion, was so much better than the competition. Not to mention my ideas were heard on improvements to make and things to change. They are always coming out with updates and making things better.

Cons: I don't really have many complaints about Trainerize. Typically if I had a problem with the software or needed something to be done that it could not currently do, then the developers would work with me on making those improvements. It has been amazing to see the updates they have come out with since I started with them. They really want the user and client experience to be great and they want you to be successful!

Overall: Trainerize allowed me to build my online personal training business and has helped me work from home and not in a gym. It has enabled me to work with more clients, get them better results and with less time and effort!

Pros: It's easy to create workouts in the formats that I want. The exercise demo videos included in the Trainerize library are great, but I also have the option to use videos from YouTube. This gives me the flexibility I need. It's easy for clients to log their workouts which is a huge help to me in tracking their progress and keeping them accountable. The messaging system is a convenient and efficient way to keep in touch with clients. Customer support is very responsive. The team at Trainerize is regularly updating and improving the functionality of the software.

Cons: Occasionally an update will change or phase out a feature that I like. There are some minor issues, like the lack of a simple way for clients to log the resistance bands they use or that there's no way in the app for them to see notes from previous times they've done a particular workout.

Overall: While I have used Trainerize to work with clients exclusively online, the biggest benefit is with my in-person clients. Trainerize has really filled in the gap for those who only see me once a week. It has enabled me to offer a more complete and comprehensive fitness solution to my clients.

Pros: Beautiful interface. Progress charts. Keeps track of clients' progress on specific lifts in specific workouts. Easy client communication.

Cons: I can't access my workout templates from the APP - I have to open a client's profile for that. I can't change/update training plans of multiple clients at once - having to go one by one is really time consuming.

Overall: Helps me stay organized with programming and client communication. I can stay on top of all my clients without going nuts or spending too much time. Clients are always impressed with the professional structure Trainerize gives my business, and they love keeping track of how many workouts they've completed, receiving messages for their Personal Bests, etc. A simple feature that goes a long way in client retention! I can't say enough good things about Trainerize. In the 2 years I've been a customer, I've seen them listen to customer suggestions and put them into action. The app has grown and developed exponentially in 2 years, which makes me look forward to every update they make. If you're a trainer, and you're not using Trainerize, you're missing out on a system that will make you more efficient and professional with your programming and client connection.

Recommendations to other buyers: I'd love to be able to change client's training plans in bulk.

Pros: Data available.

Once the system is learned it is very powerful

Cons: Workflow suffers. When training strictly online weight selection is tied for number one in importance with technique. Where you time is squander is with clients who have to have their weights added to guide them. They must be entered for every workout. We currently use our workout builder we have designed in excel to program the training and then have to transfer those numbers. We use a formula or boolean statement to process this. If trainerize could allow for weight percentages that are based of a weight we define and then define that percentage for each individual exercise your time per client will be cut in half. We haved used this program strictly online with high level athletes and your every day gym goers. The price per minute of your time is slightly over breaking even. I would love to talk more about how we use our builder and trainerize togther to help come up with a solution.

Also there is no list of new exercises that are imported. I have filmed exercises only to see a month later trainerize has their own version.

Overall: Broken enough to do alot of really cool things the developers did not intend. They are constantly trying to get better and their customer service is top notch.

Pros: Trainerize is an extremely effective software to train clients online! My clients love having their own personal dashboard and being able to track their workouts and body stats.

The company is truly invensted in each and every trainer and in their clients. The owners and employees of trainerize are constantly asking how they can improve their software. They listen and deliver and have been able to grow as a software and offer many features. We have been with trainerize for 4 years now and every year; they improve! Making it easier for me to grow my business.

Cons: There are times my training app will freeze. I sometimes find it easier to answer all of my client messages from my laptop rather then my cell phone.

Overall: Trainerize has made my online training business successful by providing amazing tools that are simple, quick and effective for myself and my clients.

I have been able to successfully grow and manage 100+ clients and after using many other training softwares prior, I'm confident that Trainerize is the most effective for myself, my trainers and my clients!

Maximize your time and get Trainerize!

Pros: I love what my clients love. They love being able to track and reference back to their workouts. They love having videos and instructions on how to do exercises when I'm not around. The app gives them a direct connection to me to answer questions. And I can help motivate and keep my clients accountable though check-ins and goal tracking.

Cons: The system doesn't work the greatest with android devices. Also, if I am training more than one person at a time I have to have a separate device for each person.

Overall: I mainly use Trainerize for my one-on-one clients. Before starting with Trainerize two years ago I would easily spend 2+ hours per day writing up client's workouts in notebooks. It took away time from my family, and limited time I would be able to use meeting with clients. Now it doesn't take me more than a half-hour per day to program. I use a tablet to track my clients throughout the day, and it has greatly streamlined my business! Trainerize also uses easy ways to schedule and progress entire macro or mezo cycles at once, and copy plans from client to client!

Pros: I love that Trainerize is a one-stop shop for running your business. From creating and delivering programs to managing client communication to handling payments and invoices, I appreciate not having to use dozens of different apps and software services.

Cons: Honestly there isn't really anything I don't like about it. They are always open to taking feedback from their users and they implement changes regularly.

Overall: Prior to using Trainerize I was creating workout programs on excel sheets, video demonstration playlists on YouTube (which was a hassle in and of itself), and then delivering those programs and playlists via email. I had clients reaching out to me through social media, through email, and through text, and I felt like I was always running in a million different directions.

Now, my clients message me through the app when they need me. I don't have to send check-in emails to see how their workouts when because my nightly report fills me in on all the stats, and I can deliver both the programs and the videos in one place which is a HUGE time-saver. My experience with Trainerize has been amazing.

Pros: I love everything about the App. From my management of the business to what my clients are able to use when training.

Cons: My only complaint is to make using the Zappa easier. I've had a difficult time connecting all the systems together and stopped using them all

Together.

Overall: I've been using the product for over two and a half years. As a Fit Pro for over 32 years I am thrilled with the success my clients have achieved as a result of having access to workouts 24-7! I am not only thrilled with their results but applaud the efforts of Trainerize and their constant updates and changes to make the program more supportive to our clients needs and also the rapidly changing science and technology that the fitness industry presents to us personal trainers. When I started with the program the capability of using many wearable technology was minimal. Not only has Trainerize embraced that portion of the industry but is constantly evolving in supporting my business making it easy to manage from the sales and marketing standpoint. Kudos to Trainerize! Thrilled with your product and support.

Recommendations to other buyers: Making the Zapps connections more supportive to Non-tech individuals.

I really like it. I tried PT distinction for awhile but didn't like it. It fits my style of program

Pros: I like that you keep updating it and making it better so that it stays in line with your competitors.

Cons: I'm struggling to think of something. I think you changed it so that now I have to use the calendar to copy a programme from a current client to a profile which I am currently logged into......... but in the past there was an option to do this in the clients 'training programme' section. I'd like to have that back. (I think you can only add a brand new programme now when in the training section) I'd also like to be able to schedule messages to people so that on day x they'll recieve a message. I know there is an option to do a few of these at the beginning but I'd like to be able to schedule a lot of these running over the course of a 6 month programme. A bit like PT distinction and also another software called coachcatalyst (previously habitcatalyst)

Overall: Easy client management - I run my entire business using this software and Facebook.

Pros: I love that Trainerize is always looking for our feedback as trainers and making improvements. I have only ever used Trainerize because there has never been a need to go anywhere else. They fill the holes when they see them. It allows me to give an amazing experience to my clients too. I receive referrals just because of the app alone! I feel like I can over deliver with it

Cons: I don't like that there are some auto messages even when I don't want them. There is difficulty with scheduling sometimes for international clients. I also think some of the videos need better form from the Trainerize library. I also think that there are too many glitches between phone and computer. Sometimes my phone will say 30 progress photos even if there is only 3.

Overall: I have had an amazing experience. Great customer service. Good incentive to refer other trainers. Lots of updates. And never a reason to leave or look for something else.

Pros: I like the ease of use, and how it allows me to keep tabs on dozens of clients at once. The morning reports indicate who's following the program laid out for them, and who's not. The automatic messages it has enable me to do simple things like wishing my clients a happy birthday, and holding them accountable when I don't. Can't recommend this app highly enough!

Cons: One thing I would like for Trainerize to enable is to have a preview of what each workout you create entails. Over the years I've used it, I've come up with hundreds of workouts, and sometimes I forget which exercise are in each. Depending on the client, I'll sometimes have to flip through several workouts before finding one that's varied enough in comparison to what else they're doing that week, and is at the appropriate level.

Pros: Constantly updated to better serve the trainer and client. Best feature has to be the push notifications/reminders.

Cons: I want to access workout templates and assign workouts to training plans from my phone. I know this feature is soon to come.

Overall: I've been using Trainerize since 2012 or 2013 and the app has been detrimental to my growth as a trainer and as a business. Even at corporate gyms before I was independently training I used the app to give my services more value and sale more at my respective clubs. The best thing about the trainerize app is it constantly updates to better serve the trainer and be more convenient for the client. Anytime I have an issue I can email or call and get a response in a timely manner to have the issue resolved. I'm very pleased with the app and don't know how I would be able to give my clients so much of their needed attention or make each client feel like they are my only client had I not found this app.

Pros: I appreciate that they continue to add features and innovate. I also like the ability to create workout and program templates and copy it over to individual clients, with the ability to modify the workouts from there. The ability to add my own custom exercises is also pretty crucial.

Cons: I wish the payment system was easier to navigate, and I wish there was a way to add a one-time billed product while a client has an existing package running - currently I need to cancel the existing package, do the one-time billing item, then re-subscribe them to a recurring billing package. This is wildly inefficient and disruptive, but not an often-enough-needed feature that it causes major problems for me. I also wish I could modify program templates once assigned to a client.

Overall: Overall Trainerize has been a positive experience - it has allowed me to create, build, and grow my virtual coaching business and greatly increase my earning potential.

Pros: I love Trainerize! It gives me the power to create a superior experience for my clients while allowing me more time and freedom for content creation and spending time with loved ones.

It is truly the future of personal training and I am excited about the new features that Trainerize will continue to add. It is also a very affordable service, which is great for trainers starting out online to 'get their feet wet' and build a client base.

Keep up the great work!!

Cons: 1.) I wish I could view and create master programs and master workouts through the app. Especially since I am currently on the go a lot and it would be awesome if I could build my client templates on the go.

2.) A 'trainer' slot for our own workouts and programs would be a great addition. It would also give us more experience with the app, which would be helpful in answering any client questions.

Overall: Love it overall!

Pros: Too many to type, but for sake of simplicity I'll pick the top three

-Programs feature which allows you to store pre-made programs and copy them out, or add subscriber

-groups feature, which is great for increasing social motivation and something special that the app offers

-It's integration with new payments that has incorporated automation aspects that will allow us trainers to create a program and then simply "let it run" and not more work is needed on our end if we set it up properly; just need to collect the $$

Overall: -Ability to save a lot of time, as well as store everything in one central place.

-can now take on a much larger clientele base and train solely online - much better than old school excel spreadsheets and just simple email communication

Great for workout programs. Needs improvement for nutrition.

Pros: This software is great to write workout programs. There are great demo videos for clients and the option to import videos from YouTube is very useful. The charts showing my clients' progress are great snapshots that help me keep my clients' progressing towards their goals.

Cons: What I like least about this software is the lack of weekly averages for weigh-ins and weekly averages for calories and macros. Right now I am hand-calculating both of those and it's a lot of extra work.

The second thing would be to make the timer automatically start counting down upon the completion of an exercise. This is a feature that my clients love from other apps and miss in this app.

The ability to make edits to clients' programming via the mobile app is almost nil. I always have to get on a computer to change anything which can be a hassle when I'm on the go.

Overall: Customer service is very responsive but when I ask questions about the items I listed above for improvement they always promise the changes are coming soon however I have yet to see any of the changes they promised months ago.

As a trainer, I've used this service for nearly 4 years now, and I must say that I have no regrets!

Pros: The fact that it contributed greatly in allowing me to expand my clientele and the way I track my client's progress. With the click of a button, I can go back and see how my clients are advancing. It's also great that they provide multiple means to track progress; such as body fat, pictures, and tape measurements. Once my client downloads the app, they will be able to see their progress, receive workouts and meal plans, and communicate with me through its built in messaging. I truly love this app and it's services.

Cons: What I like least about the software is that I am not able to print out a client's progress the same way I could their workouts,that is the only bummer that I have against it.

Pros: This software is easy to use not only for myself as the trainer but also for my clients. (Not all of whom are tech savy) It helps to keep clients accountable no matter what their goals and my it allows me to continue to add on to my client base even when my face2face business is full.

The ability to take pictures, measurements and weight stats and see them all on a graph is a big plus as well. Some of my clients haven't lost much weight, but when we put the pictures together there is no doubt they are doing well.

I look forward to even more updates and to see where Trainerize goes with this app. Keep up the great work.

Cons: I currently have no cons with this app. I have not worked on groups or meal plans I am currently just using it for single clients. Keep up the great work.

Overall: My clients and I really like Trainerize. The ease of use, the ability for the clients to change their workouts if needed or add on extra things they do is huge. I like the flexibility of the app and look forward to going on vacation soon and still training my clients.

Pros: I like having all clients in one spot vs. worrying about individual files. I use Trainerize for both online and in-home clients. My clients love following the workouts and they are easy on my end to put together. I also like the option of tracking progress through photos, measurements and weight. It really steps up the accountability for clients.

I've used the software for three years and they've continued to listen to trainers' ideas and improved it more and more. It is a necessity in my business!

Cons: I wish they would incorporate healthy habits into the app. I have worked around it though by making habits as "workouts" to still allow clients to check in on them daily.

Pros: The exercise builder is my favourite part. I can upload whether it's reps and sets or an interval or a circuit.

What I love most about it, is you can upload videos for the client to check if they're not sure.

I left trainerize for a year and tried other providers but non compared when it came to actually building a user / client friendly experience.

Cons: I would like to be able to run the interval training on the desktop site and not just the mobile app. That way it can also work for clients without compatible phones.

Overall: It has helped my client journey so much better than simply sending them away with homework. They have to check in when they do it too which means that they get much better results.

It keeps everyone accountable.

One wish is to have a calendar to book my appointments and to accept payments in my country. Then It's a one stop shop! I love it. I'll never leave again.

Pros: It addresses most of the fitness programming and online coaching needs while allowing integration with other best in class platforms for an overall comprehensive system. (Still further to go, but the development team seems open to addressing these needs)

Cons: Well, it isn't perfect, and it isn't all things (but nothing is, so to be nit picky)

The big items are:

- the integrated pay system only allows one package or product, no add-on upsells to a pre-existing service

- there is not an integrated scheduling system (yet)

- we cannot assign Master program and a Custom program to a client

Overall: Overall extremely satisfied. We are very reliant on the Trainerize platform for our future coaching services.

Pros: I love Trainerize is always updating the app to make the features even better. Since they ask all clients to input thoughts or vote for ideas. The features that get implemented are always what I need! I wouldn't even think about the added feature but be so grateful once its updated to the app. I also like that customer support is very quick to respond. The platform is used friendly and there are tons of video tutorials. Best part is I have my own app and logo in both the Apple/Google Play Store. It makes me feel so accomplished, professional, and tech savvy!

Cons: Honestly none. Since Trainerize and constantly improving I have no issues.

Pros: I like the ease of uploading my own videos, my clients find it easy to use and easy to follow. I like that I can design programs for program templates. I like that it appears that this is my app

Cons: It is a bit pricey, I can't see exact meals my clients are having. I would like to be able to respond to check - ins using my apple watch for instant correspondence. It would also be nice to have a back office for trainers to have bookkeeping even if we dont use the stripe app that is actually very expensive for me to use.

Overall: Overall I'm very pleased with this app. I like that it allows me to automate my online client workouts!! Ive looked at other apps but this one still seems the best for me!

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.

Overall: 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.

Recommendations to other buyers: I've got a lot of complaints, but it's still probably the best app out there - maybe one day they will get rid of the bugs and improve it's reliability, but that's what I hoped for a year ago. Take a few months and weight for the initial "I LOVE THIS APP" high to wear off before considering a longer term subscription.

Pros: Easy to use, I can build workouts in NO time!

Cons: I wish there was a way to build and sell pre made programs

Overall: Trainerize has helped my business grow, along with helping my clients see quicker results. I run a personal training studio and online personal training business. My clients see fast results due to the "easy-to-use" Trainerize app. This app has progressed and is staying up to date with the latest software techniques and training techniques. It's so easy to communicate with my clients and build workouts for them. They all LOVE it! Highly recommended Software. We have been using Trainerize for nearly 2 years now and our business has quadrupled income since.

Recommendations to other buyers: I've tried many different training apps, this one had the best way to build workouts FAST! (Which is what you want when you have a large client base!)

Pros: Easy to use, great customer service and an all round great software.

Cons: None

Overall: I have been using Trainerize for nearly 3 years and would highly recommend it to any fitness professional. Building workout programs is simple and makes running the business much easier, while at the same time giving me the edge to not only expand but deliver personalized programs and RESULTS for my clients.

It has been the driving force behind my online product and puts me head and shoulders above other personal trainers in my area. It really is fantastic. Client base has tripled along with the income. And it has given me the freedom to enjoy being a personal trainer and have more free time to enjoy life with the extra income. Give it a go, it will transform your business guaranteed.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it for yourself. You will be happy you did!

I've looked into other online fitness apps and this one has been the best all around!

Pros: Trainerize just keeps improving, updating, and getting better and better. My clients love so many of the features provided to make their workouts easy to access, easy to move around on their calendar, and easy to check in with me as their trainer. I can go on and on of the benefits of using this online training software!

Cons: The one con is that it can be glitchy at time with opening the app and take quite a while to open up for me. I don't know if it's like that for my clients devices. It may just be mine because of all the data and video content I have stored inside that needs to be uploaded. But overall, a great software tool.

Pros: After 2 years, building workouts has become second nature. The flow of the phone app and the website work well together when programming individual clients as well as groups.

Cons: The only flaw in the app is a lack of a booking platform for clients to both book into boot camps/classes and being able to see my availability in app (I combat this to an extent with google calendar integrated into my trainerize website)

Overall: The software works well with my 1-2-1 clients week in week out. It adds accessibility to more/all budgets by permitting me to distribute satellite coaching services at my local gym. Moving forward I plan to start some more online coaching as well to enhance my business

Pros: Trainerize was great for us in the beginning with less volume of clients. It gave us the ability to upload our meal plans and build workouts. I love that it has workout videos and exercises loaded into the app for when you need some inspiration for new client workouts.

Cons: It was a bit outdated compared to other training apps I have seen. Only allowed for one meal plan upload at a time and was always in a document format. Would love to see this software integrate with a meal plan building software.

Overall: It was great at the beginning until we grew, then the value of the software for our number of clients wasn't competitive enough with other solutions.

Pros: I live the ease of use. I studies other similar programs and found them too time consuming to learn. Trainerize makes it super easy. I like that you have the option to upgrade for more clients; thereby not having to invest more money when you may not have the clientele to support that investment. The help desk is awesome as well. I like the updates & improvements that Trainerize has published as well. The program is great for keeping track of your face-to-face clients in addition to clients you train online. Overall highly recommend!

Cons: Any cons that I might have had in the beginning have been resolved with the addition tonaccwor payment through the program. The only recommendation I would make is the ability to make notes within a client's account.

Cons: Nothing I can think of, off the top of my head. Every now and then there's a situation where I wish Trainerize had a feature for, but eventually it gets added because they're great at listening to what their users need!

Overall: I've been using Trainerize for approximately 18 months now and I absolutely love it. The recent upgrades over the last year or so have really improved the user interface and I love all the features and functionalities. I tested out a few different types of training software before committing to Trainerize, and I found it was the most user-friendly from my clients' perspective, and it was great for me because I was able to keep everything in one place. I now use it for online coaching and in-person training, both in group and individual formats.

Recommendations to other buyers: I highly recommend it!

Pros: I've been with Trainerize since 2014. They've come along ways since the beginning. I have full faith that they will continue to improve their product.

Cons: There is no offline tracking. Last time I checked, I cannot make a customized (master) program via app. To use the software properly you HAVE to use BOTH a computer (desktop website) and the app. It's near impossible to use the desktop website on a tablet or phone.

Overall: They have big plans for Trainerize's future. They aren't perfect, but they continue to make leaps and bounds with their software. I've been with them since 2014, so I know they are continuously working hard to give us an amazing product.

Better with each upgrade. Clients really enjoy it.

Pros: Updated regularly and the ability to save workout templates. I also love that it is an easy to use app, it really makes my programming for clients both in-person and online much easier. I also like the ability to substitute movements on the spot for when it doesn't work out perfectly. Lastly I really like that I can go back and review the previous workouts to better adjust programming for each client.

Cons: A little laggy with the app, especially with the Android phones. Wish there was a "fill all" button for straight sets. I also would like the ability to add notes within each exercise.

Pros: Custom branded feature

I like how you can add you're own Welcome video - a lovely touch

The ability to remove the Trainerize exercises and add all of your own videos

In app messaging between trainers and clients

The ability to periodise workouts across a training phase

The integration between MFP and the app, is a really nice touch and makes the overview of daily macros look attractive in an easy to view format, which clients love.

Cons: I would like to have the ability to remove the Trainerize client dashboard video that comes up when someone logs in for the first time and can be found in settings. To have the ability to replace this with your own would be good.

To be able to change the stock images for the cardio exercises as well as being able to track daily steps on the walking exercise rather than just distance/calories or time.

To be able to assign two trainers to one client so trainers can share client responsibilty

Overall: Currently all of our workouts are displayed on screens which doesn't give the client the ability to track and log their weight or progress. Introducing Trainerize now allows them to track their workouts, see the progress they're making, to see what's coming up over the next few weeks and, keep track of their food intake - all in all, a super app that adds a lot of value to our business and our members.

Pros: How trainerize is always improving and open to suggestions. I like how there is constant contact and always someone there to help and support.

Cons: I would like to see it where when I write programs I can modify each program template easier and save with a new name. For example: Chest and Back Hypertrophy workout 1, altered and saved as Chest and Back Hypertrophy 2. I would also love to see it where I can set up emails to be sent out every "x" number of days apart to clients so I can systemize the communications with my clients slightly better.

Overall: I built a new revenue stream for my business and made it so I can help more people

Pros: I love being able to graph my clients progress as they work towards their goals. The visualization really helps people that need constant verification of their progress. I also wish that the notes that the client writes in the individual workouts could be easier found overall versus having to track down that exact workout plan.

Cons: The software on the app is hard to design workouts, upload exercises or do anything other than talk to the clients through the messenger. There are many times I need full access while only having my cellphone, and it forces me to postpone my work until I have access to a computer.

Overall: Trainerize is a really great option to keep organized when working with multiple clients simultaneously. It's nice to be able to talk with them through the app.

Pros: Trainerize give your everything you need to run a successful online fitness training business, from programming, to uploading your own content, to payments, to messaging features. Everything you need if in one place!

Cons: I would love to see Trainerize add a built-in document signing feature for clients so that they can sign waivers and training agreements in the app as well. This is the only feature missing that I have to use an outside service for.

Overall: I've tried other online training platforms and keep coming back to Trainerize because it works well for the population I work with (general population).

Pros: -The Dashboard is a visual and interactive way to keep clients engaged and accountable. So far my clients have found the interaction on the app. Highly motivating

-The ability to sync other applications such as My Fitness Pal and Evolution Nutrition

-One place to view calendar, work out videos with instructions, progress, etc. in one place.

-Personal Messàger within the app makes it easy to stay connected to clients

-À simple add on service to existing in person clients who wish to do more training on there own

Cons: There have been some issues with My Fitness Pal Tracking- although known issue it was not syncing properly for some time. Also, there is no ability to see the finer macro and nutrition menu or food diary details within the app.

-No ability for separate news feed to post articles or live videos for specific groups

Overall: Overall very happy with it so far!

Cons: When I have an in studio client in a group program I cannot add any other workouts to their calendar. All group clients have one on one training also so it makes it hard to keep track of their one on one training.

Overall: Great! very helpful when I call and always willing to listen and share my ideas of how to make their software better for coaches.

Recommendations to other buyers: The industry selection in this form is mostly irreverent, don't think there will be many people using trainerize operating in the farming industry!!!! Maybe this should be more specific for your data collection, Personal Trainer, Gym Etc.

Pros: Things just work. There's almost never a crash or problem. We tried a lot of software before Trainerize and this was the first that actually did everything it claimed.

Cons: There's limited function for CrossFit style workouts, which can be alleviated by inputting them as a single exercise - however, it would be great to have the ability o change the word reps in the input page to something else in this case. So for example when tracking a CrossFit workout you may be able to put in 2 tracking options (a la cardio), daily rounds and Time.

Pros: This software is brilliant, it links with with MyFitnessPal and allows me to track my online clients and their completion ratio of the workouts. It also allows me to set my physical client's workouts to do in between PT sessions and again track their compliance.

What I love is that my clients find it easy to use and there is an extensive video gallery and pre-written workouts.

Cons: It can be a bit clunky when trying to change a Master Programme for a client but having liaised with your customer service team I now understand how to do it and their response rate and helpfulness was incredible.

Overall: Using Trainerize I am able to set all of my clients workouts to do when they are not with me, I am able to track their compliance rate and message them via the app when I need to. I would struggle to operate without it now and have already recommended it to a friend.

Pros: THere are so many things to like about Trainerize but one of the things I love the most is the ability to scale the amount you pay to the amount of clients you currently have. Sometimes these types of software are so hard to get into when you are just starting out. Trainerize makes if possible to pay a lesser amount for fewer clients and to pay more as you grow.

Cons: While the software is actually pretty simple there have been times it has taken me a while to figure out some features such as creating programs and setting up groups

Overall: It has been easy to use and a "wow" factor to clients in my business. they are impressed that I have an app with videos of each exercise

Pros: I am working 10 hours a day and that leaves very less time to go to gym/fitness center/classes to keep myself healthy and fit.

Then I came to know about Trainerize which is great app to get fitness training without travelling to fitness center. It really saves great deal of time and helps me keep fit. I also get advice in planning my daily diet so that I can manage my weight.

I am getting personal training for fitness at my home itself, which saves my time and ofcourse car fuel. Also I can use it according to my time schedule, no need follow the time schedule of fitness center which was not compatible with my office timings!!

Cons: It works on internet connection and when internet is not available then theres a problem. Also it does not show notifications sometimes.

Trainerize has been a great online software to deliver programs to my clients.

Pros: I like how easy it is to building training plans. It's very user friendly. I like the video aspect and all the features it has such as: progress pics, tracking workouts, myfitness pal etc.

Cons: 1) I don't like the fact you can't add multiple sets in the program. (i.e. 3-4 sets).

2) I put my warm ups in the "workout instructions" box and include videos of the warm up. However, sometimes my clients (usually non iPhone clients) can't open the link so see the video. So I have to send them via message.

3) Clients recommendation: to be able to add in their workout for the day. Sometimes they can't get to the gym and want to add in what they did for the day. (MMA class, sprints, ab circuit, etc)

4) No video access for clients. It would be nice to be able to send videos (not just pictures) via the messenger to clients.

Pros: Trainerize has the all of the features you'd need or want from an online training perspective. The software has gotten better and better over the years and I have been a customer since its inception.

Cons: Some of the new features can be confusing but they do offer videos on the new features whenever they are added. There are some small things that are a minor inconvenience sometimes but unfortunately I can't recall what they are.

Overall: Getting my mobile clients results at a fraction of the cost of one-on-one training.

I use Trainerize to help coach client to healthier lifestyles. It is a vital component.

Pros: Ease of use for admin and client. Cust support and tech support team listen and act on requests. It is the best overall solution for health and fitness coaching at this time and they are developing quickly to improve upon that.

Cons: It isnt yet a comprehensive solution (but they are working on that with the appts and pay feature), and it yet has to get habit based functions, calendar integration, and develop a real business overview as opposed to the limited singular client by client overview

Trainerize has made my job as a personal trainer and online fitness coach so much more profitable.

Pros: This software program allows me to assign workouts to my clientele in an easy-to-use layout. I've used it to provide a strength training program with video demonstrations of myself to an entire lacrosse team and was able to monitor their progress and adherence during their college breaks. The athletes absolutely loved it.

Cons: I would love for people to be able to purchase subscriptions to my different training programs directly on the app without them having to go to my website.

Pros: Looks professional. Has had a lot of updates

Cons: Constant freezing. Can't enter data while using app

Inability to look at past work while in 'track mode

Loosing previous values when changing similar exercises. For example, from a goblet squat to front squat

Overall: Great concept and does take time to set up, but once set up easy to use. However, there are a lot of limitations and bugs when using it on a Mobil device. I often have to restart the app after clearing my browser. This is very inefficient Due of clients time. Due to both myself and clients using the mobile app while in the gym, the freezing and lack of functions has me question if it's worth using. I have sent messages of the problems both through the site and the Facebook group and did not get a response.

Pros: You can create programs and payment plans right inside the app. It's easy to use. There are so many features that benefit a personal trainer. I love this for keeping my clients on track with their goals.

Cons: It does not connect with all fitness trackers but other than that I feel it's an amazing tool.

Overall: Trainerize customer service has been amazing. They are pretty quick to resolve any issues or glitches. They are constantly moving forward and adding beneficial features that have tremendously helped my business.

Pros: I like that I can upload my own videos or use some from the library. It's really user friendly for uploading your own videos.

Cons: Sometimes when I am designing a program for a client it feels like the process should be easier. It's probably that I have so many of my exercises uploaded that it takes some time to design a workout. That and rarerly are two of my workouts the same for each client.

Overall: Even when I'm not actively training clients and need to downgrade it's affordable and I don't lose any of my files.

Pros: I love that Trainerize is constantly improving. I've been using it since 2017, and love the constant updates that makes running my online fitness business much easier! I love that they have a great exercise library, and still add to it often.

Cons: It doesn't allow for other apps to run at the same time. When tracking a workout, if you leave the app to try to open a music app, the tracking stops. The timer should run in the background. Also, it crashes a lot.

Pros: The ability to upload my own videos with ease provides the personal connection that is important to me and my clients. They can still see ME and I can still provide the variety they enjoy at a very low cost ! It also allows me to discuss and demonstrate modifications and specific cues which is important in working with my clientele which are all over 55 years of age.

Cons: Many options available on the desktop version are not available on the phone or tablet.

Overall: With Trainerize, I have been able to retain half my clients following a geographic move to help my aging parents. It has provided me with the flexibility I wanted to have during this time.

Pros: I really like all of the features. I put a lot of my own video content up for clients, but the exercise library they have is huge, I use lots of those as well. It takes a few weeks of diligent use to become competent with the software, I also scheduled a phone training session that went great!

Cons: Just a couple things that threw me was that it was not quite as easy to use as it sounded in the ads, it also lacked a couple of features that I want... But they add new features all the time and as I mentioned earlier, now that I have been using it for a while it's great!

Overall: Very positive experience and client feedback as positive!

Cons: nothing

Overall: I have been using Trainerize for about 3 years now and I can't imagine running both my in-person and online training business without it. It has grown significantly through the years and are always asking for Trainer Feedback about how they can improve the app. So much easier than typing out all of my client's workouts and attaching youtube video links. All of my clients love the app and report they feel like they are training with me even when they are at the gym by themselves.

Cons: Differences between trainer and client views make communication difficult - often times my clients will forget to see the "notes" on a workout or not see how many sets or reps they have because on their end, these features are more hidden/non-intuitive

Overall: I am able to manage many clients at once from all over the world!

Cons: Not to be a homer, but I can't complain! Whenever I've recommended an addition to the interface, Trainerize always delivered in a prompt and effective manner.

Cons: Wish there was an easy payment function for my clients directly in Trainerize, but Trainerize has partnered with Zapier to allow us to integrate payment from other sources.

Overall: I subscribed to Trainerize many months ago and it just keeps getting better. I think they've added functionality each month. My clients find it easy to use and I no longer have to use pen and paper. Plus, it's allowed me to get serious about providing online training. I tried a competitor of theirs first and there is absolutely no comparison. This high quality and intuitive program, combined with great customer support, makes Trainerize well worth the small monthly investment. I would highly recommend!

Recommendations to other buyers: Fellow Trainers...stop shopping around. Trainerize has everything you need plus things you didn't even know you needed!

Pros: I like that you can archive clients

Easy to use

The app is great

Cons: When you click on the arrow next to a client that is lower on the page, it automatically scrolls back up because I guess the "drop down" doesn't fit on the screen. So you have to scroll back down

There is a lot going on in the home page

Overall: It's been a great experience and I've enjoyed the updates since I've been using it. I love that you can have clients archived, which helps keeps things saved. It's been easy to use and so important in my training.

Recommendations to other buyers: When clients write in the "notes" section it would be nice if it would notify me and that I could write back in the notes to them and they would see it. So you could discuss that specific workout.

Pros: I love that it simulates how you deliver a workout to your client on paper. You create a workout, and the each time the client tracks it, it logs the sets, reps and weights. Simple and effective.

Cons: A little to long between updates. I'd love to receive minor bug fixes more often, than only get an update once a month (or sometimes longer between updates). Custom apps also are to far behind the official app it seems.

Overall: Better overview of clients training and diet habits.

I also like the fact we can now charge through trainerize. The way we can customize workouts and keep our clients in neat organized place with a messenger feature is awesome!

Cons: The thing I dislike the most is the fact that the weigh in my clients input from myfitnesspal do not sync over and have to constantly remind them to input in trainerize!

Overall: I'm able to keep my clients all in one place. See my transaction history, when the next bill is due and be able to manage finances.

The ability to have to spend less time creating programs when you can transfer from client to client and the on loading of a new client is tremendously easier!

Pros: I love the flow this software gives when writing out workouts. It's very beneficial to have YouTube as a back-up for videos. I also like the option to add notes when needed. The ability to customize workouts and keep track of past workouts for each client is very helpful.

The check-in's with pictures and measurements are very easy to read and compare.

Cons: I wish it had a nutrition feature to this program. It forces me to use another software instead of staying in one place. I also think that the cost is more on the high-end.

Cons: I've had a few clients ask about linking their fitness tracking devices other than Fitbit to the system as it's not an option yet. We sent a request through and I'm sure it will be soon enough!

Pros: I like the fact that I can add my own videos, there's a website, and the whole marketing aspect. I know the questions asks what I like most, but I like everything about trainerize. I'm very anxious to see where they want to take it.

Cons: I would like to view clients caloric expenditure when they're connected to Fitbit, and a few more functions that would make training remote clients more effective.

Overall: Trainerize is awesome. I've found other ways to generate income in my personal training business using trainerize. I can use it for upselling or for strictly online training.

Recommendations to other buyers: More information from the Fitbit link, an interval timer that is similar to an app called Seconds Pro where I can really focus on my training and still track my mobile clients. I would like to add WuFoo forms or be able to add links in messages.

Fantastic and cost effective software that transformed the way I do business.

Pros: My favorite aspect is that Trainerize has a mobile app that is just as easy to use as the website! I can easily schedule and manage my life straight form my phone. I schedule appointments, track clients' fitness goals, and also manage my own schedule and progress. Love this app.

Overall: Tracking clients' fitness goals, scheduling appointments, tracking my own goals, communication with customer all done from one place!

Pros: I really like that I can upload my own videos. I also like that there are already videos included in the software to use while I continue building my own library. The ease of incorporating YouTube links in the software is also a plus.

Cons: It took me a little while to figure out how to use it.

Overall: My goal is to have an online training portion of my business where I use this software to train clients miles away. While I'm building that, Trainerize has allowed me to give additional value to my in-person clients by setting up workouts for them when they can't come to me.

I'd say the Trainerize has opened new doors for me as far as what I can offer my clients. I know there is potential I haven't tapped into yet as far as setting up automatic payments and creating programs clients can subscribe to.

Pros: I love how I'm able to visually see the progress my clients are making, easily check the macros that they are hitting while the app links to MyFitnessPal, and deliver workout programs that my clients can access

Cons: Sometimes it gets buggy and the nutrition changes do not load for my clients. And also some of my clients report having difficulty with notifications and/or receiving messages

Overall: I used to use google sheets which had to be manually entered on by the client and I wouldn't be able to visualize progress as well as now. I love that Trainerize automatically loads the nutrition information, tells me when my clients are getting their workouts done, is an easy to use instant messenger, and graphs the clients progress while also allowing easy access to progress photos.

Overall: Our experience has been fantastic, again we are very happy with this platform and appreciate their continued support and growth.

Pros: I LOVE this app. Makes it so easy to build workouts, keep body stats and progress pics and I LOVE that it saves all info so you can track your progress.

Cons: I wish that there was a notes section next to each exercise for the iphone so you can add in details, like used cables insted of barbell etc.

Overall: Easy to get my clents their workout plans and to track their progress and send check in messages all in one place :)

Trainerize is a great app and super helpful in keeping track of my workouts :)

Pros: I like that you can send messages to your coach/clients, that it shows you graphs of body measurements and has videos of exercises to make sure you are doing the right exercise with proper form. I also love that it shows me/clients what I/we lifted the week before.

Cons: I wish that there was a section next to each exercise for notes to make quick comments like how the exercise felt or to put reminders about that exercise for the next time you do it. It would be great if the app wouldn't randomly just shut down so I don't have to re-launch it.

Great option for On-Line Personal Training

Pros: Trainerize is enabling me to provide a professional online experience for my clients through my own branded app. It is easy to use for me and for my clients. They have all expressed their happiness with the app and we use it to communicate with each other as well.

Cons: Although updates are always being made to improve the app, there are a few options I would like for it to have regarding specific tracking of details. If it had these functions, I would use it for my in person clients also.

Overall: Freedom to train online which provides me more time at home.

Pros: I love Trainerize, the app allows you to send workouts directly to clients and alerts you when they have completed them. They also highlight you as a trainer to anyone looking for personal trainers in your area!

Cons: The only downside which they have now fixed was only having Paypal as an integrated payment option. Unfortunately, I had to merge my business into another software program prior to the change but I still use Trainerize to setup and send programs to my clients and I recommend it to all my trainers and coaches.

Pros: Sends notifications when clients do anything. Easy to communicate and message with them. Able to see what they are all doing. Able to check in and take them through workouts.

Cons: Would be nice to be able to edit workouts within the app, so I can make changes when needed instead of waiting to get to a computer.

Overall: Able to manage and coach personal training clients with ease and from a remote location.

Definitely worth it!

Pros: Easy to use interface for clients. Ever expanding exercise database. Super easy to create plans and progress as needed in the advanced editing option.

Cons: Tough to search in the new search bar/area for exercisesoutside of the trainerize database.

Overall: Ive been using trainerize for a few years now and each time they update I like it more. It is easy for my clients to use (key) and easy to track progress.

I'm so glad we found Trainerize!

Pros: We experimented with many other products until one late night I was fed up and searched for an application that did all of the things we needed it to do in one place. I some how found Trainerize and have not turned back since. We can effectively manage client programs while keeping engagement and motivation high. The automation features make things a lot easier. Our clients live in the app. Those that engage with it the most have had the best results.

Cons: Some of the features on the dash are hard to interpret from the coaching side and the tagging features are a little bulky.

Overall: We are able to manage our local members and online membership and special programs all in one place.

Overall: I have been using trainerize for over 3 years and absolutely love how easy it is to use. They are constantly adding improvements and new features.

Recommendations to other buyers: keep creating those updates and thank you so much for listening to my feedback.

I have been using this software for a few years now.
