Pros

I love how it allows me to automate basically anything I'd like to whether it be emails, reminders, texts, workouts, check-ins, and instruction videos.

Cons

V3 hasn't launched yet, it doesn't update automatically for some users and kicks them out of the app while in use.

Thank you for the great review Chris.

PT Distinction V3 will be well worth the wait, I promise!!

It sounds like some of your clients may need to update their app as it shouldn't kick them out. Could you ask your clients to update to the most recent version please.

If that doesn't solve the issue for every one of your clients then please drop us a message via the contact form and we will get another update sorted for you.

There are so many features in this software it's crazy. I love the vast amount of exercises in their library and the easy of use.

Cons

Interface could look a bit better. For custom exercises there wasn't a feature to use my YouTube videos and I had to upload them myself instead.

My clients get a very easy to use platform and they LOVE the app to look up their workouts. That sets this a part from most platforms.

Pros

I really like the functionality and the consistent updates. they really put a lot of into the site and it shows. Over time this will become, if not already, the best PT software in the world.

Cons

So far not much I don't like but it would be very nice to see some more endurance activity friendly areas of the platform. I just signed up for a free trial with Final Surge which is designed for running coaches and it's great. They don't have the same exercise library as PTD does and I will probably always keep PTD so I can work with general clients more as a personal trainer. As a running coach, which is what I'm putting my focus on right now, I will use Final Surge and then ask my clients to go to PTD for the exercises. Over time I will make my own videos so that my running clients don't need to shift back and forth. Their platform is great so I would honestly consider something like that because PTD will gain more coaches that way. Training Peaks is too expensive and Final Surge isn't so right now many endurance coaches are gravitating towards Final Surge from what my colleagues tell me. I'm sure there are more platforms that are great for endurance coaches but so far Final Surge has the nod in my opinion.

Thank you Jeff.

As you mentioned our primary design is online training and online coaching but if we can improve our service for endurance coaches we are always open to suggestions.

I think the recent integrations of MyZone and Fitbit should help with endurance athlete tracking and we have Garmin integration coming soon as well.

If you have any exercise videos you want us to add or any specific improvements you would like to see feel free to drop us an email via the website contact from or to me directly tim@ptdistinction.com.

Once again thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review.

ease of use, time saving, client friendly usability, cost efficient solution.

Pros

I've tried using a number of third party services in order to offer quality services to my clients and these guys at PTD are by far the best I've met in many years. Every third party provider makes amazing claims but few actually step up and deliver, these guys exceeded my expectations with regards to servicing my account, improving my knowledge of how to use the solution in order to help my clients and on top of all that, they're genuinely nice guys.

Cons

This is unfair as they are currently revamping their offering and the newer version sounds like it's going to be something very special indeed. A couple of things feel a little clunky at the moment but the fact that these guys are very fast in answering questions, offering help and are clearly genuine in their passion to help fitness pros the cons are basically washed out. I would've scored the product higher on the stars but the new version will likely answer any additional needs I may have.

See above. It has helped me to become a better coach and train more clients.

Pros

The messaging centre is phenomenal. I can send or schedule text messages, in app messages and emails to individual clients and groups of clients in seconds. The impact this has had on my coaching is huge.

I also love the flexibility of the software and program builder to do everything I want to do in the way I want to do it.

My clients find it very easy to use.

Cons

It takes a bit of time to set up the website integrations and the app branding. This is not a massive problem as they show you how to do it and even do it with you live in the free Masterclass.

I now have a good online coaching business and continue to grow. I can easily handle a lot of clients which is what I want to do as I love helping a lot of people.

Pros

It has everything you need to become an online personal trainer. They teach you how to get clients and their stuff works. As you learn more about the software you can handle a lot more clients than you can without it.

Cons

That the forms and questionnaires are only available online via my website and not in my app.

It has helped me grow my online training business.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

My expertise lies in fitness, definitely not in technology. Having heard great reviews from others, I was keen to try out PT Distinction. I'll admit, it took a little learning but that's because I have zero ability with computers. With help from Tim's excellent tech team I was able to get my business off the ground much faster and easier than if I had gone it alone. Running my online fitness coaching business is now much less stressful thanks to PTD!

Pros

It streamlines the ability for my clients to access info - everything is in one place

Advice to Others

I think it would be great if a client could only use the computer or an app. For the assessments, they must log in via a computer. It would be great if that could be done on the app too.

To put assessments in to the app just add them to the record sheet. Your clients can then access them via the computer or the app, whichever is most convenient to them.

I'm very pleased your online business is growing well, keep it going!!

I have been using this system for over a year and I thought it was good back then, but it just continues to get better and better with new developments coming on board all the time. The team behind PT Distinction really listen to the demands of the user base and act on feedback really quickly. It's crystal clear that they care about the product they deliver to you as the trainer and this allows you to provide a fantastic service and product to your clients which is the most important thing.

Pros

The flexibility to deliver excellent coaching to my clients remotely.

Cons

No real cons to speak of as any recommended improvements have been quickly implemented to date.

Advice to Others

You get a free trial, so go and play with it. But do make sure you take some time to learn the features of the system through the many video tutorials as it's power can be hidden away.

This is a really nifty program which does a lot more than you think on first appearances. They've recently launched a masterclass series which will assist with understanding, the program can do a lot but is not always entirely intuitive.

If you're willing to put the time in with this and make it your own, it's an excellent program which looks highly professional at a VERY reasonable price.

The support you get from Tim and his team is second to none, they respond quickly to all enquiries and take on feedback from users to make regular improvements. I would really recommend PT Distinction.

PT Distinction has been the best decision I've made to advance my business. As a trainer, we're obviously limited in the number of people we can train by hours in the day. PTD allows me to train more people, and to train those outside my immediate area.

The software is easy to use, and they really set you up for success with all of their training so you can maximizes the efficiency of the program. Customer service is top notch when you have a question, and they are always making improvements to the program based on feedback from the users.

I looked at several different systems before using PTD, and this is hands down the most professional looking and effective program.

Pros

Intuitive and easy to use. The training for users how to use all of the tools as grow your business - they don't just want you to know how to use the program, but to be a successful online personal trainer.

I reviewed every online training software available but PT Distinction was head and neck above the rest. There is not much I can't do in PTD and really makes running my business so much easier. It was so good I stared my month free trial and ended the free trial after about a week because I was so impressed I just wanted to start building my custom app and start building my business. The features and the functionality are great but they are accompanied by some of the best customer service I have ever encountered. Tim and the team are unbelievable, if I need an answer to a question the support is in place either through the closed Facebook group or direct message. I even had Ash contact me via hangouts to have a face to face chat to try and help answer any questions I may have and help get me set up quicker. The software and the service are second to none!!!!

Pros

Everything.... the fact that I can automate almost everything means that I am not limited to the amount of clients I can serve with out taking anything away front their experience and give them the best of me really gives me the ability to run a successful business and still have the time to spend with my kids. Not to mention the support Tim and the team provide is crazy!

Cons

A little overwhelming to start whilst trying to learn everything. Has so many features it takes time to familiarise yourself!

Advice to Others

If you are a personal trainer and looking to expand to online coaching..... don't mess around just get onto PTD trust me!

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.

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:
- Programs
- Nutrition coaching courses
- Habit tracking
- Email support
- Measurements
- 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.
