Super powerful platform with great customer service.

Made my business so much easier to run and helped me get better results for my clients.

Pros

Very flexible and powerful platform allowing you to coach clients in a way that is tailored not just to your clients but to you as a coach too. Mix that with the live masterclasses, training and incredible support your on to a win with PT Distinction.

Cons

The only thing I can think of is the look of the software, though this is being improved in the next version of the software.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a great review. The look in PT Distinction V3 (out soon) is the best in any software I've seen in any industry, we can't wait to show it to you.

Excellent software for online training, best out there

No problems at all, whenever I've had a question the response was fast

Pros

I believe this is the best software available today for online personal training (but not for live, in-person training, so if you need that look at PT Enhance or My PT Hub). Includes your own branded app that lets clients do their assigned workouts and lets the trainer view video of clients performing movements, which to me was a must-have feature (there are only 1-2 other software providers that currently have this, and their feature sets are not as good as PTD). PTD also lets all of your clients use the software for free for the first 30 days, a must if you are going to run online challenges. PTD even has tons of free resources about how to be successful as an online trainer. To me they are a no-brainer.

Cons

They do not integrate the trainer's calendar with Google calendar, Apple etc which makes it not great for in-person training (but they don't market this software for that anyway, they market it as being great for online training. So I'm not sure if it's fair to call that a Con.) Also as of this writing the Android app is not fully functional compared to the Apple app, which means my clients with Android phones are often better off using the web browser on their phone rather than the app. Other than that I can't think of any negatives, love this software.

Reasons for Choosing PT Distinction

With all the amazing features and support, I believe PT Distinction is the best choice by far for online training. I use another provider (PT Enhance) for in-person training; it is expensive and inconvenient having 2 software providers but I want all of my clients to have the best possible experience.

PT Distinction can be a useful tool

Overall this software is solid depending on your goals. If you are trying to make a lot of money as an online trainer for putting in minimal effort, then go with this software. But if you want to work honestly and make a difference in someone's life, train in person.

Pros

PT Distinction will greatly help you if you intend on becoming an online personal trainer. It gives you the resources needed to thrive in this personal training trend.

Cons

Online personal training is kind of a joke. There is so much value in being with an actual trainer. And almost anybody can be an online trainer. For anyone looking to be a personal trainer, go to an actual fitness center.

Hi Luke, We see you tried signing up for a trial of PT Distinction 2 days AFTER leaving this review but haven't yet logged in! Interestingly you have been offered gift vouchers by Capterra to review software's. Your negativity toward online training probably comes from a place of well meaning but is thankfully wrong. The support and results from online training is often far better than those for face to face training. Online coaching gives the opportunity to support your clients 24/7 rather than just 1-2 hours a week. The results reflect this. Many of our members report life changing results for their clients and most say their results with online clients are better than results with their face to face clients. Online coaching allows the best trainers to help far more people than face to face training so the impact for those that actually do it is incredible. To date our members have helped 150,000 people and many have shown life changing results.

Outstanding Personal Training Software

I have got back hours and hours each week that I can now use to do more important things to help grow my business further. It's been transformational for me.

Pros

It has changed my life SO dramatically and given me so much time. I used to used Excel to deliver workouts to my clients as I grew it just took more and more time PLUS the user experience of using the Excel sheets on a phone were so clunky and embarrassing. Now I easily create new programmes for clients, modify them on the fly, keep track of their progress and keep in touch with them easier than I thought possible. And they ability to create groups and communicate with groups of members at once is great too.

Cons

Honestly, it's difficult to think of anything. There is the odd, very occasional glitch, but they are always resolved via the awesome customer service team in no time at all.

Reasons for Choosing PT Distinction

A combination of the best reviews, most reasonable pricing and features.

The most comprehensive fitness software you will find.

Pros

I love that I can do anything I need/want to do for my business. I can design programs in minutes. I can make changes that update across multiple clients at once. I can customize exercises, forms, assessments in addition to adding pdfs and tutorials. I have been able to customize a nearly year-long habit-based nutrition program that offers daily lessons and bi-weekly habits.

Cons

The only con is there is a bit of a learning curve with the software. Once you spend some time with it, I find it user-friendly but this can be overwhelming in the beginning.

Reasons for Choosing PT Distinction

I chose PTD because it offered all the features, functions and customization that I wanted for my business.
