Clients can now schedule workouts to any day of the week and they can even track stats for past workouts.

CLIENT DASHBOARD RE-IMAGINED.  We’ve completely redesigned the client dashboard into a 3-screen experience. From the Summary screen, trainers and clients can access the calendar and the plans by simply swiping left or right.

NEW CLIENT LIST CATEGORIES. Your new client list knows everything. You’ll be able to see the last time you got in touch and the last time you messaged your clients. This is a great way to find out who is engaged and great way to keep them committed by messaging them at the right time.

Workout Tracking

Workout tracking is one of the core functionalities in Trainerize. We wanted to leverage the great features that we already have and make them even more amazing! We added multiple training plans for trainers to plan in advance and better optimize their time and workload. We also enabled queuing training plans, adding timed rests within workouts and adding a general exercise type when building workouts. But the biggest time-saver and life-saver that we’ve added is a brand new, totally redesigned copy tool. We can’t wait for you to try it! You can copy your plans and workouts in so many new ways, using a simple drag and drop interface.

INTRODUCING MULTIPLE TRAINING PLANS. This feature is finally done! We are excited to announce one of the most requested features, the ability to create multiple training plans, is now available! Trainers can now plan in advance and stay on top of their client fitness history. Having multiple training plans is a key feature for phasing, as trainers can reference previous training plans and edit them based on new targets.

QUEUE SCHEDULED TRAINING PLANS. With the launch of multiple training plans, we introduced an exciting new way of organizing training plans. Based on the duration of the training plans, you’ll be able to plan both your client’s training and time-off. While you make changes to the duration of a plan, extend or delete plans, rest assured that all the other plans will adapt and so will your scheduled workouts.

8-rest-trainerize-features-2YOU CAN NOW ADD TIMED RESTS IN WORKOUTS.

You asked, we listened! We are really happy to announce that you can now include rest timers as part of workouts.

This allows clients to track workouts continuously and allows a continuous workout flow. Add them in between workouts or group them when making supersets.

 

INTRODUCING THE GENERAL EXERCISE TYPE. With the new general exercise type you’ll be able to make complete workout programs with everything included. Think all in! The general exercises will not need to be tracked, so they are ideal for stretches, foam rolling or when you just want clients to go through motions.

SAME EXERCISE, MULTIPLE TIMES. Whenever you build a workout or you need to create a sequence of exercises, you’ll be able to customize workouts by adding the same exercise multiple times into the same workout.

INTRODUCING THE SUPREME COPY FEATURE. With the launch of multiple training plans, in Trainerize V3, we have redesigned the copy feature and transformed the copy technology inside the web app. From the web app, trainers can now perform various copy actions that will will help them streamline their work, save time and boost efficiency when creating training plans. We’ve added highly powerful options such as copying to and from your workout templates, copying between clients, or copying full or partial training plans. Yes, down to individual workouts! With all these options and improved look and feel, the copy tool will become your new best friend. You’ll never have to create a workout from scratch – unless you want to. Ready to create plans quicker and train even more clients? Mix and match workouts to make plans faster than ever before.

Cardio Features

DO MORE WITH REFINED CARDIO ACTIVITIES. We’ve streamlined cardio activities to include the most popular ones. Trainers and clients can select from the most popular cardio activities and add them to their calendar. We’ve also left room to personalize the cardio activities with a “general” type of activity which let’s you track any type of cardio you want.

TRACK CARDIO TARGETS.
Trainers now have the ability to add cardio targets to all cardio activities. Distance, time and even heart rate zone target setting is now available. For example, whenever a trainer sets a heart rate zone target, the system will automatically figure out the right zones based on client body stats, and set the target according to the suggested zone. Cardio targets are visible to clients when opening a cardio activity and while tracking it.

REDESIGNED CARDIO TRACKING. We know tracking is essential not just for workouts, but for cardio activities too. In Trainerize V3, you’ll be able to get more out of your cardio tracking by adding time, distance, speed, incline and calories to your cardio activities.

BUILT-IN CARDIO TIMER.
 One of the most important things to track with cardio is time, and now it’s easier than ever. The built-in timer mode for tracking cardio on mobile app is so simple to use, you can hit Start timer now and it automatically starts tracking and adding the time to your workout.

Overall experience and enhancements

IMPROVED APP RELIABILITY FOR BAD CONNECTION. Basement gym? No problem, you will not lose any workout tracking stats! They will stay on your phone and you can just save your workout when you get a better internet connection.
