No matter where your clients are in their journey, nutrition is key at every step of the way in helping them reach their health and fitness goals. Here at Trainerize, we’re focused on helping you deliver a holistic approach to coaching, one that includes fitness, habits, and nutrition coaching. This means we don’t take nutrition lightly when it comes to giving you and your clients the best tools you need to succeed.
Redefining and building the next-generation of meal tracking
When you look at all the apps you can use for meal tracking and calorie counting, there are a lot to choose from. However, we noticed gaps and missing features from those apps and ultimately decided that if we wanted to give you and your clients the best nutrition coaching experience, we needed to also deliver on a seamless way to track meals. And the only way to do that was to build our own in-app meal tracking within Trainerize.
We built the ability to track meals inside Trainerize over a year ago now and received an overwhelming response of positive feedback. Whether clients prefer to keep a photo food journal of their meals or log their meals in full detail, they can easily do it right within Trainerize. However, that was just the beginning.
Since then, we gotten lots of great feedback on what you all wanted in a meal tracker. Something that was easy and intuitive for clients to use, detailed and specific, and allowed you to work alongside clients to make sure they reached their goals. With our latest set of game changing features, we’re excited to finally share that you and your clients will get to experience one of the best meal tracking experiences available today. Welcome to the future of meal tracking.
Meet your new favorite meal tracker
⚡ Clients can now find the foods they need to track faster
No one wants to see an overwhelming list with multiple serving sizes of the same food. Clients can find the foods they want fast, with a shorter list of relevant results.
⚡ Track servings accurately with fractions and decimals, in whatever units clients prefer
Clients can track their foods quickly and more accurately with serving size options right from the meals or food search page. When adding foods, there are a variety of new serving sizes for clients to choose from.
⚡ See the macro and caloric breakdown for each meal
Seeing clients’ nutritional intakes for the day was great, but sometimes you need to see a bit more. You and your clients can now view the macro and caloric breakdown for each meal under a new Diary tab to understand their intake in more detail.
Plus, when clients add a meal, they’ll get a preview of the change to their macros and calories for the day. That way, they’ll be more mindful and aware how different foods and meals impact their goals. For you as a trainer, you’ll be able to gain a stronger understanding of your clients’ eating habits, and make recommendations to guide them closer to their goals.
⚡ Support clients through feedback and collaboration
Does a client drink too much soda or habitually tends to grab unhealthy snacks late in the afternoon? One of the biggest reasons why clients turn to you as their coach is for your coaching and feedback.
So, when clients log their meals, you can easily give feedback or jot notes into their meal logs to help them make healthier choices and stay on track. And if you’re really hands-on with your clients’ journey, as a trainer, you can edit meals and add foods for your clients once they’ve logged it to ensure meals are tracked as accurately as possible!
