Product Upgrades and Releases ABC TRAINERIZE UPDATE | Introducing the Smart Meal Planner – The Fastest and Easiest Way to Offer Meal Plan Suggestions for Clients

Introducing the Smart Meal Planner - The easiest, fastest (and most fun) way to offer meal plan suggestions for clients

In the past, when someone signed up for a coach, they were introduced to a set of weights and the differences between a set and a superset. The focus was on fitness and training, but over the years there’s been a shift. Coaches are now starting to take a holistic, 360° approach to coaching, one that includes fitness, nutrition, and habit coaching. Ultimately, it’s a combination of the three that will help clients reach their goals.

With the personal trainer role being redefined to become more holistic, we see nutrition as a default element of personal training. Which is why we’ve been focusing on enabling trainers to deliver on nutrition coaching seamlessly with one app. One app to deliver on nutrition habits, tracking meals, and delivering meal plans.

However, we’ve taken it one step further with extra nutrition coaching features!

The Advanced Nutrition add-on makes it easy to generate and deliver personalized meal plans in seconds

Say Hello to Advanced Nutrition Coaching

ABC Trainerize’s Advanced Nutrition Coaching add-on will make it easy for you to generate and deliver personalized meal plans in seconds, so you can spend less time building meal plans from scratch and more time coaching clients. You can generate meal plans using the Smart Meal Planner feature.

The Smart Meal Planner helps generate meals for clients, customized to their caloric goals, macro split, dietary preferences, and more.

Easily Deliver Meal Plan Guides with the Smart Meal Planner

It’s never been easier to coach a variety of clients who have different needs and dietary preferences. If clients are looking for more guidance around what to eat, you can generate up to 3 days worth of meals for clients based on their caloric goals, macro split, dietary preferences, and more in seconds. The meal plan will get delivered to clients right away and they can follow along to engaging videos and detailed recipes as they cook. 

Customize your smart meal plan based off of daily caloric intake, meal frequency, macro splits, dietary preferences, and food allergies and sensitivies

When creating a smart meal plan coaches have the option to customize it based on several criteria:

  • Number of calories per day
  • Number of meals per day (choose between 3 and 6 meals)
  • Macro split for the meals (choose between Balanced, Low Carbs, Low Fat)*** 
    • Balanced (40% Carb, 30% Protein, 30% Fat)
    • Low carb (20% Carb, 30% Protein, 50% Fat)
    • Low fat (30% Carb, 50% Protein, 20% Fat)
  • Dietary preference (choose between General, Vegan, Vegetarian, Pescatarian and Paleo)
  • Excluding food sensitivities (select to exclude Fish, Eggs, Dairy, Shellfish, Soy, Gluten, Tree Nuts, Peanuts)

Coaches can customize frequency delivery and select how many sample meal plan days they want their clients to receive (1-3 days).
