Easily the best software on the market if you can afford it

I love how they made this so easy for a trainer from all area with different style of programming able to this software with ease if your ok with the price and not have a meal planner for clients this a great thing to offer your client I grant you that.

Pros

easy to use, you a free trial there are tons of exercise video for training programmes, you can link most app clients will be using, great online support

Cons

it expensive​ when I started I​ could afford to use it.
don't have a meal planner so you pay for another software so your​ clients can track their diet plan.

Trainerize review

Pros

I like how easy it is to create workout programs and that I don't need to record videos showing the movement as it is already done for me

Cons

The example videos should only have one model and same background in order to keep it more uniform.

Great Software Program for personal trainers

Pros

I love Trainerize, the app allows you to send workouts directly to clients and alerts you when they have completed them. They also highlight you as a trainer to anyone looking for personal trainers in your area!

Cons

The only downside which they have now fixed was only having Paypal as an integrated payment option. Unfortunately, I had to merge my business into another software program prior to the change but I still use Trainerize to setup and send programs to my clients and I recommend it to all my trainers and coaches.

Overall a good software for Fitness Professional to connect with clients

Overall I appreciate the Trainerize software, but feel it could be a bit more user friendly.

Pros

I enjoy Trainerize's newest interface and calendar feature that allows you to add client workouts easily; as well as move and duplicate them without having to reenter information.

Cons

The software is exactly intuitive when it comes to layout. Unnecessarily tabs open when you open client pages and some of the paths to get to client information is clunky.

Take your Fitness Biz Online

I've tried other online training platforms and keep coming back to Trainerize because it works well for the population I work with (general population).

Pros

Trainerize give your everything you need to run a successful online fitness training business, from programming, to uploading your own content, to payments, to messaging features. Everything you need if in one place!

Cons

I would love to see Trainerize add a built-in document signing feature for clients so that they can sign waivers and training agreements in the app as well. This is the only feature missing that I have to use an outside service for.

Trainerize

Pros

Love the wide variety of activities available on the app. Love the ability to customize the app to our brand. Love the ability to add our own personal exercises. Love the ability to grow the clientele base and make master programs/workouts to use on several subscribers. Saves a lot of time and allows to scale and reach more people and clients.

Cons

Would love to be able to add pictures (instead of only youtube videos) to our own personnal exercise library. Would also love to add pictures/documents as references for the client to see every time they log in to the app, if they need them.

Trainerize Review

Trainerize has taken my personal training business to the next level, and has allowed me to have more freedom by increasing my online training through customs built online programming and macronutrient guides.

Pros

Abundance of exercises and demonstration videos available.

Cons

Certain functions do not work at times, but they are constantly upgraded and improving.

Great work out app

It keeps me motivated to stay healthy and fit. Its an easy way to compare your workouts.

Pros

I love being able to track my workouts within the app. When I am doing a new workout I can see my results from a previous workout to be able to make sure I push myself to do more than the last workout. Having videos of each workout when needed is very nice. The messaging portion is also nice especially in the custom workout programs used by some of the trainers.

Cons

Sometimes it takes awhile for my previous workouts to show up on my current workout screen or doesn't show up at all so I have to go back to a different page to see them.

Started using two months ago and it has been awesome

I have used this through Lifetime Fitness and it has been a real gamechanger as far as keeping me on track and allowing me to monitor progress week to week.

Pros

Communication capabilities with my trainer, opportunity to utilize video and report results that my Trainer can comment on

Cons

I use this for a daily routine and while I can make overall comments on the day I would love to have the ability to comment on tasks within the day

Awesome One!!

Pros

I am working 10 hours a day and that leaves very less time to go to gym/fitness center/classes to keep myself healthy and fit.

Then I came to know about Trainerize which is great app to get fitness training without travelling to fitness center. It really saves great deal of time and helps me keep fit. I also get advice in planning my daily diet so that I can manage my weight.

I am getting personal training for fitness at my home itself, which saves my time and ofcourse car fuel. Also I can use it according to my time schedule, no need follow the time schedule of fitness center which was not compatible with my office timings!!

Cons

It works on internet connection and when internet is not available then theres a problem. Also it does not show notifications sometimes.

Create fitness target with it

Pros

If you want to build your healt with personal trainer you can use this stuff for it. Clients can track workouts, nutrition, fitness targets, progress photos, and more. Very good software for both gym users and personal trainers. I use it for about 6 months and don't want the other :)

Cons

sometimes it breaks the connection from the phone, but otherwise there are no problems

Very good product overall

Very positive experience and client feedback as positive!

Pros

I really like all of the features. I put a lot of my own video content up for clients, but the exercise library they have is huge, I use lots of those as well. It takes a few weeks of diligent use to become competent with the software, I also scheduled a phone training session that went great!

Cons

Just a couple things that threw me was that it was not quite as easy to use as it sounded in the ads, it also lacked a couple of features that I want... But they add new features all the time and as I mentioned earlier, now that I have been using it for a while it's great!

Overall good but can be glitchy

Pros

I appreciate the ease of contacting my trainer and the specialized workouts prescribed for me and my specific needs. I sometimes find the workout video clips to be a helpful tool when learning a new exercise.

Cons

I find it to be glitchy sometimes. I'll check in for a workout but later in the day I'll STILL receive a notification reminding to do the workout I've already completed. Occasionally there will be a workout video that will not load for whatever reason while other videos do load. I want to be able to set the timer for multiple time options other than one minute.

My Clients love it

I absolutely love this app. I would recommend it to any trainer.

Pros

So easy to use. I love that you can track a clients progress and hold them accountable with daily emails with the workouts. I also love that you can attach a video so that your client knows exactly what is expected with each movement.

Cons

Take a little getting used to but customer service has always been so helpful.

Trainerize is ok

i used it for the free 30 day trial to see if it would be better than the current software i use. Clients prefered the other software for ease of use.

Pros

It shares workouts with other trainers easily , has a weight up feature for weightlifting.

Cons

difficult for clients to work around, not as user friendly as others.
