Full transparency: I have been using Trainerize to train clients online since day 1 of Trainerize’s existence. I am so grateful for how much it has helped me grow my business and expand my reach as a fitness coach. That being said, all of the latest features Trainerize has rolled have truly helped me grow even more! I now use the app to coach clients in things other than just fitness and workouts!
The two features I’m going to mention below have also helped get better results out of my in-person personal training clients. Why? Because when they leave my studio I know I can see what they are doing and I am on their mind until their next in-person session.
Beyond fitness coaching, there are two main features I love to use with clients.
1. Nutrition coaching
This feature has allowed me to provide nutrition coaching to clients who are not interested in online fitness coaching. Some clients already attend a gym or go to a studio; however, that gym does not provide them with personalized nutrition coaching and this opens the window for me to still work with them.
Having Trainerize integrate with MyFitnessPal allows me to effectively coach clients in overall nutrition to reach their weight loss goals. I am able to see their calorie intake and macro split each day and use the in-app messaging to communicate on what they eat= each day. I also love that I can upload my own documents such as a meal plan or other supplementary information to help them out with their nutrition.

2. Habit coaching
The other feature has been a game changer for me and my business—as well as my clients’ results. Habit coaching has allowed me to again reach clients who are looking for overall lifestyle/wellness coaching. Some clients have come to me not looking for a “diet plan and workout regimen,” but more for an overall lifestyle plan. They are looking for an overall lifestyle shift to create healthy habits in every aspect of their life, this is where habit coaching has really helped!
I am able to set specific habits for clients to focus on each week and month. Simultaneously, they continue to work on their fitness and clean eating routines. We often forget things like sleep, daily movement, water intake, slow eating, and abstinence from alcohol—but they all contribute to an overall healthy lifestyle. The habit coaching feature will remind clients when they go on streaks or get achievements, this is a great way to keep people on track and create more of a bond with my online training clients. They always feel like you are checking in on them and helping them in more aspects of their life than just working out!
Sure, my main clientele on my Trainerize app uses it for workouts and personalized online coaching. However, it’s been a major key in continuing to build my business to offer other services such as nutrition coaching and wellness/lifestyle coaching.
