    Really helps keep online training clients organized.

    Pros

    This software is great, keeps you well organized and is really easy to use. The customer service is amazing. Any time I had an issue, they would get back to me in a reasonable amount of time.

    Cons

    I had great experiences with this software, however if I had to pick, I would just have to say that it is primarily focused towards online personal trainers instead of in studio trainers.

    Pros

    This app has an awesome exercise library and the company is constantly upgrading the features. PTD has more features than any other software that I checked out. It's great that you can put people into the program for a short trial period and not be charged. PTD also offers business business training.

    Cons

    The exercises in the library was done in England , so the names differ a little from our american exercise names and could be a little confusing to American clients not a problem you can always upload your own.

    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.

    In the beginning there is a learning curve and you need to spend sometime getting used to it. But nothing of great quality dies;t take time to learn and once you have learned it everything is a breeze.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.
