Hands Down The Best Software For Online PT

I chose PT Distinction having tried all of the top softwares for online trainers. I had heard great things about PTD as trainers recommend them in Facebook groups I'm a pert of almost every day. I was quite excited when joining that it would be the best one. As I looked around I thought this is good, as I looked some more I thought this is great and with every hour I spent on the software I realised it was truly incredible. Some other softwares are good but PT Distinction is far more than just a software, it gives you everything you need to have a successful online training business. You can create any systems you like such as 7 day challenges, membership sites, free trials, flagship programs, 1-1 bespoke online training and more. You can coach your clients nutrition by video which adds that extra touch. I used to use meal plans for nutrition and clients didn't stick around long. Tim (the guy that runs PTD) suggested I try setting nutrition habits and added some video coaching, now my clients stay with me long term. That's another thing that makes PTD stand out, they know how to create online training businesses and they teach you everything you need to know and show you how to do it. If you join up and listen to what they have to tell you, you will do well, no doubt about it.... I started with 1 online client and now have 27 and getting new ones every week.

Pros

Amazing software. Help you get clients, grow and deliver a brilliant service.

Cons

None

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.

Exceptional software for fitness professionals and clients

Love the product and have only had exceptional service.

Pros

I love the ability to individualize and implement future program changes all in a simple click of a button. I love that I can add "repeating" features on the schedule-such a time saver! Clients love the app as well.

Cons

I wish there were more features (i.e. manage client calendar, payments, etc) available through the mobile app from an admin perspective.

Reasons for Choosing PT Distinction

Better value and the look and feel of the website was more inviting.

Thank you for the great review Darla. You can't manage clients via the app as there's simply too much depth for an app. However, if you login to the web portal on mobile it's as perfect as an app and allows you to manage everything for any of your clients, groups etc..

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.
