It has helped me grow my online training business.
It has everything I need to set up and grow my online business in one place.
I know with PT Distinction I can train as many clients as I want to, other platforms were to time consuming per client to go much beyond 15 clients . With this I can do a better coaching job in much less time.
Customer service is great.
Nothing really. I think it could look more modern but I have heard something is in the pipeline for this and these guys don't mess around when they do upgrades so I'm looking forward to that.
Jason from Core Functions fitness
Great software that does everything you could every want for delivering online PT. I haven't many of the more advanced features but love the software and find it very easy to use.
They offer great support and give all the business building training you could ever need to set up online.

I have been using PT distinction-PTD for about two years now and honestly, it is the best platform out there to deliver a high quality Online and even Offline fitness, nutrition and life-changing coaching.
The support and customer service is awesome, the team from PTD always work on new improvements and upgrades and the response time is the best I have seen.
I have tried many other products ( possibly all of them). I have a very critical eye as my goal is to deliver a highly effective, high quality but simple to use product for my clients and PTD does exactly that.
IF you wondering which coaching software to use and feeling stuck, give PTD a go, try it for 30 day free, you have nothing to lose, and you feel love it.
Easy of use for clients
Lots of features and constant innovation
Can't think of any
Chris from The CJ Rubric
I've tried other apps like trainerize and train heroic and PTD blew them out of the park way back when I started using it in 2014.
With the updates that have come since, it is a no brainer for the coaching that I do.
We use it for:
- Nutrition coaching courses
- Habit tracking
- Email support
- Food journalling.
- Gratitude Journalling.
These are the main things, there are many more individual changes we make to the app depending on the client.
The customisation is what I like about it the most.
With the planned updates coming to the app, this will be the ultimate tool to help create an environment for your clients to make positive behaviour change

Super quick and great customer support from the CEO himself on the Facebook page. Constantly making upgrades (for free) based on user requests. Endless possibilities with the app once you play around with it a bit and figure out all you can do with it. Allows you to really coach as opposed to just write programs.
It has potential to offer so much that it is a bit overwhelming at first .... BUT .... they just started offering free Masterclasses on how to use the software.
Dan from My Personal Trainer Website
I've reviewed a LOT of online personal training softwares and PT Distinction stand head and shoulders above the rest in terms of practical application.
Here's the problem with a lot of other PT softwares... They are full of exercises that clients can do in a GYM. Bench press, barbell squat, lat pull down etc.
But the type of person that wants online training is the type of person who DOES NOT want to go to a gym.
So the exercises need to reflect this.
This is what PT Distinction have done very right. They've created an exercise library that requires very minimal equipment but still challenges the client.
An example exercise is squat to reverse lunge (each leg), to burpee, to press up, to squat jump!
These are the types of things a client can do at home.
Also, it's important to note that if personal trainers give their clients a cheaper way to train in the gym... they'll take it. Even with the best fitness software in the world, they'll still struggle when it comes to technique.
Training in the gym requires a personal trainer... Training at home (online personal training) requires PT Distinction.
Steve from Steve Mackay Fitness
PT Distinction has been a very impressive software for a long time. Other reviews have summed up its amazing functionality and ability to save online trainers time and help them provide a first rate online service.
The new look is the final piece of the puzzle. Now I have this amazing software and when clients login through my own website the product looks brilliant and makes my programs, coaching and service look even better.
James from Jim Clark Personal Trainer
I can't speak highly enough about PT Distinction. The time saving features it has are unbelievable. If you want to add an online coaching and training element to your personal training then you really should join.
The software is always being updated and improved, I cant wait to see what they come up with in the future as every new improvement is always fantastic and innovative.
Mathew from Mathew Smith Fitness
I use this software to offer a higher priced package to my Bootcamp clients and for my purely online clients.
The groups feature combined with the fact that I can add extra coaching via email, video PDF or text makes it stand out massively for my needs. On top of that the fact that it can be completely customised and branded with my stuff is very important.
I also really love the exercise videos and the fact that I can add my own without the need for YouTube and the distractions that brings for my clients!
When needed the customer service has always been very fast and helpful.
Charlotte from Platinum Health and Fitness
This software saves so much time and hassle from coaching and training my clients online. It truly is an amazing and clever software.
Henry from HC
The main reasons I love this software and its apps so much are twofold:
1) It can be completely customised as my own i.e it is integrated in to my website, all printouts have my branding on and all emails come from my email address.
2) It allows me to be an online coach rather than simply create some training programs and make a meal plan. PT Distinction allows me to make and share coaching videos and articles via my login protected website and the apps. It also allows me to do proper assessments and get all forms easily filled in and filed neatly. Further to that it gives tools to motivate clients and to keep them accountable. All this means that I can closely replicate my face to face PT service online.
Also through their emails, blogs and YouTube channel they truly go the extra mile in educating trainers on how to get the best from the software and how to build a successful online training business. I have picked up 9 clients from the stuff they taught me (for free) in the last 3 months.
Lauren from inner athlete UNLEASHED
I've been trying to start an online fitness coaching business and up until finding PT Distinction, I was uncomfortable with the fitness program delivery software I was using. What I was using up until this point did not allow for regular assessments, automations, special attachments and forms like the Par-Q to be filled out with ease. PT Distinction has all of those features which, in turn gives me the capability of building and delivering quality online coaching programs while also leveraging my time better. Also, I really appreciate all of extra value Tim has added through his online tutorials, tips, and resources on how to run and delivery a high-end online fitness coaching experience. I have yet to find another software program like this that has gone to those lengths to ensure their customers are successful. Through the YouTube tutorials I was able to explore the software before even signing up for the free trial--with every video I watched, I was blown away by the capabilities of this software and how easy it was to use. As corny as this may sound, I'm so glad I've found PT Distinction--I'm confident that it will help grow my business and help a lot of people. Also, I'm happy to be supporting a company that cares more so much about their customers success!
Chaz from Chaz Degun Performance
Very good product. Quick and easy to build and change programmes. Saves a lot of time. Brilliant library of exercises and videos which helps clients remember what they're supposed to be doing. Clients find the product they receive effective and professional.
Al from Fitness
I have spent time researching the best sites for my online training project and tried many platforms. This is the best by a long way in terms of quality and features that allow you to provide a top class job and save time. This platform has made high class online training a very doable option.
Emma from Emma Elliot
PT Distinction is an excellent online training platform for professional personal trainers. I use it to add extra coaching to my face to face clients and for an automated online coaching system that gives me a small passive business that goes alongside my face to face work.
If you are a PT that is either looking to create an online training business or to supply a really impressive extra service to your in person clients then I highly recommend PT Distinction.
Martin from Martin Davis Personal Training
Since using pt Distinction I've been able to pick up a decent amount of online clients, which has completely changed my business. Once you work through the tutorials provided it's pretty easy to work your way around the site and my clients have commented on how great the product is that they see. The hardest part of online training is drumming up business but they even give you a hand with doing that!
They sell it as a way to earn more money while not putting in the early mornings and late nights that we have to deal with as PTs with face to face clients and I'm discovering that to be true. I'm spending less time travelling from client to client and more time with my wifea and children, which I'm obviously delighted about. All in all I'd definitely recommend that any decent trainer signs up to PT Distinction, you can only benefit from it!
Mike from Fitness Elite
My clients think I must have invested $000's to make the perfect membership website and personal training software but really I spent a few minutes setting myself up on PT Distinction. It really is an amazing piece of software with website and apps, brilliant exercise videos and time saving features that are way beyond other softwares.
I love it.
Steph from SJ Fitness
Fabulous software that helps with every aspect of training people online. I also use it to add extra service to my in person clients and they love it.
Harry from Stronger Training
I integrated this software in to my own website in about 3 minutes, then added my email address. From that moment on it saves me so much time training my online clients. The quality of every feature is amazing and it is really well thought out for both online personal training and offering my own automated mass sold training programs.
I have tried other similar software's but PT Distinction is a level above.
James from James Burt Personal Training
Has every feature needed to do high quality online coaching. Easy to integrate in to your website, apps look amazing. 3 steps ahead of all other software's in terms of quality and innovations to save trainers time while doing a first class coaching job.
Customer service is fantastic as well. Have always got back to me with the correct help within a couple of hours.
