Upgrade Announcements Scale your training efforts with our latest upgrade

You’ll notice signing into your dashboard that we’ve made many changes within Trainerize to help you work faster, scaling your training efforts.

Over the past few months, we’ve spoken to many of our trainers and the overwhelming feedback was to make it quicker and easier to manage a growing list of clients within Trainerize. We’ve taken all your great ideas and gone back to the drawing board. On the surface and under-the-hood, we’ve made critical changes. Let’s review them.

Easily See Who Needs Attention At A Glance

The new platform-wide Needing Attention feature helps our trainers follow-up and engage their clients. Engaged customers are more likely to renew. We want to help you get your clients hooked on your service.

  • Red clients need immediate attention. Attend to each one until your attention list is empty. Easy.
  • Orange clients need attention soon. Just a heads up.
  • Make use of start/end dates on your training plan to activate reminders in Trainerize. We will remind you when clients are near the end of their plan and require a follow-up.
  • Walking a client through their set up is completely automated. However, in the rare case that a client might have e-mail or technical problems (ie. spam filters set too high junking everything), we highlight them so you can follow-up personally so nobody falls through the cracks.

Distribute Training Plans Quickly
To Train A Massive Amount Of Clients Online

Many trainers have asked to be able to rotate training plans, or quickly populate plans from a template. We’ve streamlined the copy feature to allow you to do all these in one place. This allows you to quickly populate plans across your clients according to how you structure your business. Some workflows trainers use are:

  • You need a quick rough starting point. Create a few clients as templates (ie. Mass Building, Weight Loss). As clients are added, simply copy a template client to your new client. Tweak and customize for your new client.
  • You train clients using Levels or Phases. Simply create a template client per level or phase. As clients are added, copy the appropriate template to them. As they get stronger, progress them to the next step by copying a more advanced plan over it.
  • You group train. Use a client as your master client. Setup a training plan, then copy it to everyone. When you wish to rotate plans, update the master client, and re-copy to everyone.

Visually See Clients Grouped By Training Plans

The new Sort By Training Plan view helps you more effectively manage group training by sorting them into groups.

Simply copy between clients or manually give training plans the same name, Trainerize will automatically organize them for you. In one click, quickly select groups of clients to message or copy training plans to.

More Information. Less Clicks.

We’ve floated as much data up to the trainer level without being overwhelming.

The client page has more data in one view so you don’t have to switch into each client to get an overview. Opening up a client’s profile now shows you a complete picture of the activity of your client.

We’ve also overhauled many interface elements to make clicking and navigating through Trainerize easier.
