Pros: There are so many features in this software it's crazy. I love the vast amount of exercises in their library and the easy of use.

Cons: Interface could look a bit better. For custom exercises there wasn't a feature to use my YouTube videos and I had to upload them myself instead.

Thank you Tim. We really appreciate you taking the time to leave a great review. You will love the new look when PT Distinction V3 goes live. It is the best looking software I have seen in any industry.

So far this has been a great platform and I love the interface. Keep it up!

Pros: I really like the functionality and the consistent updates. they really put a lot of into the site and it shows. Over time this will become, if not already, the best PT software in the world.

Cons: So far not much I don't like but it would be very nice to see some more endurance activity friendly areas of the platform. I just signed up for a free trial with Final Surge which is designed for running coaches and it's great. They don't have the same exercise library as PTD does and I will probably always keep PTD so I can work with general clients more as a personal trainer. As a running coach, which is what I'm putting my focus on right now, I will use Final Surge and then ask my clients to go to PTD for the exercises. Over time I will make my own videos so that my running clients don't need to shift back and forth. Their platform is great so I would honestly consider something like that because PTD will gain more coaches that way. Training Peaks is too expensive and Final Surge isn't so right now many endurance coaches are gravitating towards Final Surge from what my colleagues tell me. I'm sure there are more platforms that are great for endurance coaches but so far Final Surge has the nod in my opinion.

Overall: My clients get a very easy to use platform and they LOVE the app to look up their workouts. That sets this a part from most platforms.

by PT Distinction on October 23, 2017

Thank you Jeff. As you mentioned our primary design is online training and online coaching but if we can improve our service for endurance coaches we are always open to suggestions. I think the recent integrations of MyZone and Fitbit should help with endurance athlete tracking and we have Garmin integration coming soon as well. If you have any exercise videos you want us to add or any specific improvements you would like to see feel free to drop us an email via the website contact from or to me directly tim@ptdistinction.com. Once again thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review.

Pros: I've tried using a number of third party services in order to offer quality services to my clients and these guys at PTD are by far the best I've met in many years. Every third party provider makes amazing claims but few actually step up and deliver, these guys exceeded my expectations with regards to servicing my account, improving my knowledge of how to use the solution in order to help my clients and on top of all that, they're genuinely nice guys.

Cons: This is unfair as they are currently revamping their offering and the newer version sounds like it's going to be something very special indeed. A couple of things feel a little clunky at the moment but the fact that these guys are very fast in answering questions, offering help and are clearly genuine in their passion to help fitness pros the cons are basically washed out. I would've scored the product higher on the stars but the new version will likely answer any additional needs I may have.

Overall: ease of use, time saving, client friendly usability, cost efficient solution.

Pros: The messaging centre is phenomenal. I can send or schedule text messages, in app messages and emails to individual clients and groups of clients in seconds. The impact this has had on my coaching is huge.

I also love the flexibility of the software and program builder to do everything I want to do in the way I want to do it.

My clients find it very easy to use.

Cons: It takes a bit of time to set up the website integrations and the app branding. This is not a massive problem as they show you how to do it and even do it with you live in the free Masterclass.

Overall: See above. It has helped me to become a better coach and train more clients.

Pros: It has everything you need to become an online personal trainer. They teach you how to get clients and their stuff works. As you learn more about the software you can handle a lot more clients than you can without it.

Cons: That the forms and questionnaires are only available online via my website and not in my app.

Overall: I now have a good online coaching business and continue to grow. I can easily handle a lot of clients which is what I want to do as I love helping a lot of people.

Pros: It has everything I need to set up and grow my online business in one place.

I know with PT Distinction I can train as many clients as I want to, other platforms were to time consuming per client to go much beyond 15 clients . With this I can do a better coaching job in much less time.

Customer service is great.

Cons: Nothing really. I think it could look more modern but I have heard something is in the pipeline for this and these guys don't mess around when they do upgrades so I'm looking forward to that.

Overall: It has helped me grow my online training business.

Pros: It streamlines the ability for my clients to access info - everything is in one place

Overall: My expertise lies in fitness, definitely not in technology. Having heard great reviews from others, I was keen to try out PT Distinction. I'll admit, it took a little learning but that's because I have zero ability with computers. With help from Tim's excellent tech team I was able to get my business off the ground much faster and easier than if I had gone it alone. Running my online fitness coaching business is now much less stressful thanks to PTD!

Recommendations to other buyers: I think it would be great if a client could only use the computer or an app. For the assessments, they must log in via a computer. It would be great if that could be done on the app too.

Vendor Response

by PT Distinction on March 24, 2017

Thanks Sally. To put assessments in to the app just add them to the record sheet. Your clients can then access them via the computer or the app, whichever is most convenient to them. I'm very pleased your online business is growing well, keep it going!!

Pros: The flexibility to deliver excellent coaching to my clients remotely.

Cons: No real cons to speak of as any recommended improvements have been quickly implemented to date.

Overall: I have been using this system for over a year and I thought it was good back then, but it just continues to get better and better with new developments coming on board all the time. The team behind PT Distinction really listen to the demands of the user base and act on feedback really quickly. It's crystal clear that they care about the product they deliver to you as the trainer and this allows you to provide a fantastic service and product to your clients which is the most important thing.

Recommendations to other buyers: You get a free trial, so go and play with it. But do make sure you take some time to learn the features of the system through the many video tutorials as it's power can be hidden away.

Pros: Professional look, price, support

Cons: Ease of use, unable to edit templates

Overall: This is a really nifty program which does a lot more than you think on first appearances. They've recently launched a masterclass series which will assist with understanding, the program can do a lot but is not always entirely intuitive.

If you're willing to put the time in with this and make it your own, it's an excellent program which looks highly professional at a VERY reasonable price.

The support you get from Tim and his team is second to none, they respond quickly to all enquiries and take on feedback from users to make regular improvements. I would really recommend PT Distinction.

Pros: Intuitive and easy to use. The training for users how to use all of the tools as grow your business - they don't just want you to know how to use the program, but to be a successful online personal trainer.

Cons: None

Overall: PT Distinction has been the best decision I've made to advance my business. As a trainer, we're obviously limited in the number of people we can train by hours in the day. PTD allows me to train more people, and to train those outside my immediate area.

The software is easy to use, and they really set you up for success with all of their training so you can maximizes the efficiency of the program. Customer service is top notch when you have a question, and they are always making improvements to the program based on feedback from the users.

I looked at several different systems before using PTD, and this is hands down the most professional looking and effective program.

Pros: Everything.... the fact that I can automate almost everything means that I am not limited to the amount of clients I can serve with out taking anything away front their experience and give them the best of me really gives me the ability to run a successful business and still have the time to spend with my kids. Not to mention the support Tim and the team provide is crazy!

Cons: A little overwhelming to start whilst trying to learn everything. Has so many features it takes time to familiarise yourself!

Overall: I reviewed every online training software available but PT Distinction was head and neck above the rest. There is not much I can't do in PTD and really makes running my business so much easier. It was so good I stared my month free trial and ended the free trial after about a week because I was so impressed I just wanted to start building my custom app and start building my business. The features and the functionality are great but they are accompanied by some of the best customer service I have ever encountered. Tim and the team are unbelievable, if I need an answer to a question the support is in place either through the closed Facebook group or direct message. I even had Ash contact me via hangouts to have a face to face chat to try and help answer any questions I may have and help get me set up quicker. The software and the service are second to none!!!!

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are a personal trainer and looking to expand to online coaching..... don't mess around just get onto PTD trust me!

The support and customer service is awesome, the team from PTD always work on new improvements and upgrades and the response time is the best I have seen.

I have tried many other products ( possibly all of them). I have a very critical eye as my goal is to deliver a highly effective, high quality but simple to use product for my clients and PTD does exactly that.

IF you wondering which coaching software to use and feeling stuck, give PTD a go, try it for 30 day free, you have nothing to lose, and you feel love it.

Comments: I've tried other apps like trainerize and train heroic and PTD blew them out of the park way back when I started using it in 2014.
With the updates that have come since, it is a no brainer for the coaching that I do.
We use it for:
- Programs
- Nutrition coaching courses
- Habit tracking
- Email support
- Measurements
- Food journalling.
- Gratitude Journalling.
These are the main things, there are many more individual changes we make to the app depending on the client.
The customisation is what I like about it the most.
With the planned updates coming to the app, this will be the ultimate tool to help create an environment for your clients to make positive behaviour change

Overall: Super quick and great customer support from the CEO himself on the Facebook page. Constantly making upgrades (for free) based on user requests. Endless possibilities with the app once you play around with it a bit and figure out all you can do with it. Allows you to really coach as opposed to just write programs.

Pros: Customer Service is exceptional! It may not be an immediate response but they Facebook group that has been implemented really has brought this to the next level.

Cons: Nutrition is lacking a little right now but an improvement to this is in the works.

Overall: When I first started with PT distinction, I was hesitant. I can honestly say this is the best thing I have done for my business. The PT Distinction team when I signed on was primarily a one man team. Now the team is growing and has created a Facebook community of the best and brightest trainers in the industry. They are always going above and beyond and are so kind and patient with their clients. They will not only answer my questions but even log in and fix the coding for me if I have trouble.

There have been many recommendations for the software and they not only consider (and more often than not implement) these recommendations but actually ask for them. Are there areas the software can be improved? I am sure there are some but I am also sure that the representative and his team promptly will find a way to improve any area that the trainers they serve on ask. I cannot say enough. This team is honestly just as much business coaches as they are IT. They are constantly providing information to their trainers not only of how to use the software but ways to improve our abilities as trainers.

I am so glad to have these guys and the rest of the PT Distinction trainers in my corner. You will not regret going with these guys.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a chance,

Thanks for the review Adonis. Getting set up if you are completely branding your app, integrating the software in to your website, integrating your email address and setting up your branding on print outs can certainly be the hardest part. However, we do feel it is a great thing to offer you these options. You should definitely get yourself signed up to the live masterclasses we have just set up for all members and trialists as these will get you all set up with your entire online training service in a very short time. After this you will be blown away by what PT Distinction can help you do, how great it can make you look and how much time it can save you. I look forward to seeing your successful journey progress.

Pros: Fully customised app
The level of support
The automated features
The workout library
Results tracking

Cons: I struggle to keep up with all the new features.

Overall: To have the ability to have a fully customised branded app to help track clients progress, habits, workouts and much more is amazing. It gives me a boost as a personal trainer, ensuring I am delivering a professional and personalised service to my clients. I have nothing but praise from all my clients, most of them think it¿s amazing that I have my own app.
The system is ever evolving and updates are rolling out all the time. Just when you think it can¿t get any better a new feature appears. The representative and his team must be busy bees behind the scenes.
The software has endless opportunities for set up. I am only scratching the surface with what this software can offer, but I know I can adapt and change it at any time. There is an extensive range of `how to¿ and coaching videos to ensure you are making the most of PTD.
PTD takes the stress out of training online. By having the ability to automate, but keeping that personal touch, frees me up to spend time with my family and friends.
The support is amazing. Any issues (usually finger trouble by me) are swiftly sorted. There is also a Facebook group to bounce ideas off other trainers and support each other through our fitness careers.
I have used other PT software in the past and PT distinction pulls the pants down on them making them look ridiculous. It really is the bees knees!

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't hesitate, just do it!

Pros: That it is a go-to one stop shop.

Cons: It is a bit clunky in places and I have made a few time costly mistakes.
It is not particularly easy to learn
It doesn't automatically save as you work
Having said the above, there are video's and now free training sessions

Overall: Can't recommend PT Distinction highly enough. The software is constantly evolving, taking into account what Personal Trainers (PT's) really want, need and require in terms of offering a better service to their clients. The FaceBook page offers support and even more importantly the representative listens to the PT's, responds directly to their questions and takes into account suggestions about his product. This in turn has meant that in even in the last few weeks PT Distinction has started offering some excellent software updates, is offering free training (pretty unheard of in this industry) and surrounded himself with experts who are taking the company forward. If you want to have complete trust in a company then PT Distinction is for you. They really do go the extra mile. I haven't met the representative in person, but such is his affinity and approachability with his customers that he has made me feel part of the PTD team. PTD offer a month's free trial so you can make your own mind up and see if it is a fit for you. Win Win.

Recommendations to other buyers: I see the software as organic and it is improving all the time. There is now doubt that it will be a completely different animal in a couple of years. I am confident that it will become smoother and more user friendly.

Pros: I set up an online challenge feeding in to a flagship product and then to a membership site in a few hours. They taught me how to set up every part of this service, to market my services and bring in clients. Incredible.

Cons: None

Overall: Incredible. You can set up any systems you like on PT Distinction, this software is designed from top to bottom to make online personal trainers succeed, train many clients and do amazing things.

The coaching they give you to go alongside the software is next level. If you're a personal trainer that wants to do well online this is the only software to use.

Recommendations to other buyers: All trainers with an online part to their services should use PT Distinction.

Pros: Designed specifically for online training and coaching. Help you with getting clients, setting up your online business and everything needed to deliver online coaching.

Cons: Takes a bit of time and effort to get it all setup and branded as your own. Worth it, though!

Overall: The idea of online training has always appealed to me. Work from anywhere in the world, help more people and get known globally.... What's not to love!! The problem was that I struggled to get clients or even think of systems to manage and coach lots of clients online.

I joined PT Distinction partly because of all the great reviews in Facebook groups and partly because of the extra support and help with business growth that they give.

This turned out to be a great decision as I now have systems in place, a consistent flow of new clients coming in and I know exactly how to train and coach them online.

I now have a solid online income and am helping more people online than I ever have face to face.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it, join their Facebook Group and don't look back.

Thank you for the great review Chris. Regarding the branding; Everything can be branded and edited as your own. You can integrate in to your website and chose your own colours and setup. You can also set up your own app with your own colours, images, logo, name, app description etc.. If you login and click on the "Customise" icon it shows you how to do all of that. If you have any problems just ping us an email and we'll get it all sorted.

Pros: Solid platform with varying amounts of depth. Great content teaching you how to build a long-term sustainable online PT business.

Cons: None

Overall: Having tried various different online personal training platforms, PT Distinction is by far the most well-rounded and enjoyable software to use.

I feel I can work really personally with my clients and the new schedule feature has been a huge plus for my clients.

Something that really makes PTD stand out is everything around the software. Tim and the team work tirelessly to help you build an actual business rather than just an empty platform of great software.

The insider content is always updated and I'm really looking forward to using PT Distinction for a long time and can't thank Tim and the team enough for really putting something fantastic together here.

Thanks guys!

Pros: Amazing software. Help you get clients, grow and deliver a brilliant service.

Cons: None

Overall: I chose PT Distinction having tried all of the top softwares for online trainers. I had heard great things about PTD as trainers recommend them in Facebook groups I'm a pert of almost every day. I was quite excited when joining that it would be the best one.

As I looked around I thought this is good, as I looked some more I thought this is great and with every hour I spent on the software I realised it was truly incredible.

Some other softwares are good but PT Distinction is far more than just a software, it gives you everything you need to have a successful online training business. You can create any systems you like such as 7 day challenges, membership sites, free trials, flagship programs, 1-1 bespoke online training and more. You can coach your clients nutrition by video which adds that extra touch. I used to use meal plans for nutrition and clients didn't stick around long. Tim (the guy that runs PTD) suggested I try setting nutrition habits and added some video coaching, now my clients stay with me long term.

That's another thing that makes PTD stand out, they know how to create online training businesses and they teach you everything you need to know and show you how to do it. If you join up and listen to what they have to tell you, you will do well, no doubt about it.... I started with 1 online client and now have 27 and getting new ones every week.

Recommendations to other buyers: Couldn't recommend strongly enough. Do the new success map they have it is brilliant for getting set up, getting clients, delivering your training and growing big.

Pros: It has everything needed to be successful as an online personal trainer and coach.

Cons: The only con I can think of is that it takes a bit more time to set up than some other softwares. However, this is because it is branded 100% as my own so I need to put in my logos, descriptions, email address and integrate to my website. Well worth the small effort and now I have my own online platform.

Overall: I tried a lot of softwares before starting my online business. I actually really liked a number of them, then I got to PT Distinction, I couldn't believe what was possible on this software.

As I worked my way through the tutorial videos I just thought WOW this is incredible. The systems you can set up, the coaching you can produce and the branding are unbelievable.

There are many great softwares for online training but PT Distinction simply blows them all away.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it and take your time in the trial. On first glance it looks like any other software for online PTs. As you dig a bit deeper, watch all of the tutorial videos (Click on icons when logged in, PTD support these videos could be more obviously placed) and explore the site you start to understand how amazing this software is and how much it can help you as an online coach.

Hi Bea, Thank you, I'm pleased your loving PT Distinction so much and it's helping you do so well with your online business. I think your right about the tutorial videos, it is too easy to miss them and with that totally miss out on seeing the power of PTD. We will set up some clickable walk throughs which are very obvious and guide trainers seamlessly. Thank you for your kind words and for your constructive feedback. Tim

Comments: PT Distinction is different to many other software's as it is all about you. My clients login via my website, my apps are now my own (I.e I have my logo, name and own listing in the Apple and Android stores!), communications come from my email address, if clients print out a program it's my banner at the top!

Even putting this level of customisation and branding asside it is still an unbelievable peice of software:

- The exercise videos are the best looking videos online and are synchronised from front and side angles.

- The tracking and charting of results is incredible. Multiple variables of any exercise compared on one graph....A true reflection of results.

- You can create assessments, programs and emails then schedule them to be delivered to your client at a time and date that you want it to go. For me this means I can set up 3-4 months worth of client programs and assessments at one time and just let it happen (though if needed I can edit and change anything, anytime). I can then run an auto responder series of emails to guide, coach and encourage my clients.

- The group's system is simply amazing! Put your coaching, programs, assessments, emails, coaching videos, questionnaires, meal plans, food diary etc...in to one coaching group and add the content to multiple clients accounts in 2 clicks!..I only use this for emails, a welcome video, some coaching videos and a few paleo recipe books but the potential with this is massive!

- Then there is the ability to create totally automated packages and sell them to the world while I sit back and relax...... True passive income! I have so far got 2 automated programs, one for coaching cricket fast bowlers and another for weight loss. They are both low cost and can help almost anyone in the world...... This is great for me as my face to face PT prices are £120 per hour so I can now help anyone and not just the rich!

- Add to all of this the latest feature that allows my clients to video themselves doing an exercise and then instantly view it alongside the correct demo video! My clients get instant feedback on their technique and the videos upload in to my account so that I can have a look and give my feedback as well.

- All in all PT Distinction is amazing and every trainer who has pride in their own work and their own brand should use it.

The Best Online Personal Training Software To Date

Comments: I've reviewed a LOT of online personal training softwares and PT Distinction stand head and shoulders above the rest in terms of practical application.

Here's the problem with a lot of other PT softwares... They are full of exercises that clients can do in a GYM. Bench press, barbell squat, lat pull down etc.

But the type of person that wants online training is the type of person who DOES NOT want to go to a gym.

So the exercises need to reflect this.

This is what PT Distinction have done very right. They've created an exercise library that requires very minimal equipment but still challenges the client.

An example exercise is squat to reverse lunge (each leg), to burpee, to press up, to squat jump!

These are the types of things a client can do at home.

Also, it's important to note that if personal trainers give their clients a cheaper way to train in the gym... they'll take it. Even with the best fitness software in the world, they'll still struggle when it comes to technique.

Training in the gym requires a personal trainer... Training at home (online personal training) requires PT Distinction.

I feel this software supports me with everything I want to deliver online training. I had tried another software before but felt it held me back as it was a bit un flexible, after that experience it is amazing to find PT Distinction.

Comments: I use this software to offer a higher priced package to my Bootcamp clients and for my purely online clients.

The groups feature combined with the fact that I can add extra coaching via email, video PDF or text makes it stand out massively for my needs. On top of that the fact that it can be completely customised and branded with my stuff is very important.

I also really love the exercise videos and the fact that I can add my own without the need for YouTube and the distractions that brings for my clients!

When needed the customer service has always been very fast and helpful.

Comments: The main reasons I love this software and its apps so much are twofold:

1) It can be completely customised as my own i.e it is integrated in to my website, all printouts have my branding on and all emails come from my email address.

2) It allows me to be an online coach rather than simply create some training programs and make a meal plan. PT Distinction allows me to make and share coaching videos and articles via my login protected website and the apps. It also allows me to do proper assessments and get all forms easily filled in and filed neatly. Further to that it gives tools to motivate clients and to keep them accountable. All this means that I can closely replicate my face to face PT service online.

Also through their emails, blogs and YouTube channel they truly go the extra mile in educating trainers on how to get the best from the software and how to build a successful online training business. I have picked up 9 clients from the stuff they taught me (for free) in the last 3 months.

Just began using it last week and already love it!

Comments: I've been trying to start an online fitness coaching business and up until finding PT Distinction, I was uncomfortable with the fitness program delivery software I was using. What I was using up until this point did not allow for regular assessments, automations, special attachments and forms like the Par-Q to be filled out with ease. PT Distinction has all of those features which, in turn gives me the capability of building and delivering quality online coaching programs while also leveraging my time better. Also, I really appreciate all of extra value Tim has added through his online tutorials, tips, and resources on how to run and delivery a high-end online fitness coaching experience. I have yet to find another software program like this that has gone to those lengths to ensure their customers are successful. Through the YouTube tutorials I was able to explore the software before even signing up for the free trial--with every video I watched, I was blown away by the capabilities of this software and how easy it was to use. As corny as this may sound, I'm so glad I've found PT Distinction--I'm confident that it will help grow my business and help a lot of people. Also, I'm happy to be supporting a company that cares more so much about their customers success!

Comments: Since using pt Distinction I've been able to pick up a decent amount of online clients, which has completely changed my business. Once you work through the tutorials provided it's pretty easy to work your way around the site and my clients have commented on how great the product is that they see. The hardest part of online training is drumming up business but they even give you a hand with doing that!

They sell it as a way to earn more money while not putting in the early mornings and late nights that we have to deal with as PTs with face to face clients and I'm discovering that to be true. I'm spending less time travelling from client to client and more time with my wifea and children, which I'm obviously delighted about. All in all I'd definitely recommend that any decent trainer signs up to PT Distinction, you can only benefit from it!
