TrueCoach overview

What is TrueCoach?

TrueCoach is a web-based personal trainer platform designed for fitness trainers, coaches and physical therapists to track clients' workouts and monitor training progress. It offers robust tools for designing complete training programs that can be shared with clients in daily or weekly modules. The solution helps physical trainers to streamline administrative works and manage client communications efficiently.

TrueCoach helps in creating personalized workout plans for clients, communicating daily workout schedules to them and tracking their progress from a web interface. Trainers can contact clients via phone, SMS or even email via TrueCoach. A built-in scheduler allows messages to be scheduled -
through different channels - daily, at a fixed time. The robust visualization tool allows trainers to monitor daily workout activities of clients on a progress tracker and helps in tracking their progress over time.

TrueCoach can also be used by clients to log workout and post-workout details or diet-related questions to trainers; watch exercise videos embedded in emails; as well as record their workout history. Real-time messaging features allow clients to chat directly with trainers through the application itself. The solution can be configured and custom branded, with users able to set rules for notification, communication and information sharing.

A central exercise library in TrueCoach contains a number of pre-built workout templates that can be used by trainers to design workout programs. Trainers can also create and save their own, detailed workout plans. Other features include nutrition tracking, client management, and mobile web accessibility.

Best programming software I have used

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2018-11-09
Review Source: Capterra

I have no longer had to rely on using an excel or google sheets type format that is awkward for writing and can get confusing the longer you use it. Clients love the ease of use of TrueCoach and communication has never been better.

Pros
Do you want to spend more time then is necessary programming? This software greatly enhances your ability to effectively and efficiently deliver programming to clients. Reviewing results and communication is seamless. Its design allows for organizing what your plan is and then translating that to a program that delivers it in an attractive format . Their new app is incredible.

Cons
Sometimes it is a little slow to respond, something I know they are working on

Response from TrueCoach

TrueCoach: Truly Amazing!

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

The biggest benefit I've noticed is a time saver. From dealing with spreadsheets and emails in the past, I was always sifting back and forth trying to find and track information. TrueCoach has made that a breeze, so I can focus more on client service, rather than waste time.

Pros
What I like most about this software is that it's made for coaches who not only LOVE to program exercise and training programs, but also want ease of use to quickly write programs to see progressions and client results. From the bench mark features, to 'exercise history' features, TrueCoach has it all. I'm able to track any data I want on my clients and see their history with the assessments as well. The notifications work just like Facebook, so there's no confusion on notifications you've seen or not read. The video aspect is HUGE for me and my clients because I like my clients uploading their film of exercises. Through TrueCoach, I'm able to slow the video down, do a screen capture video, and send it right back to them with critiques and praise in a matter of minutes.

Cons
What I 'don't like' about the software was the transition from 'FitBot' to 'TrueCoach'. I think 'FitBot' was a more fitting name and told people what they were getting, but they wanted to rebrand and come out with an app. The app is knew and has some bugs, so I have my clients save the website on their home screen. It acts better than the app (until improvements are made) and it's more user friendly. It's a growing pain that they'll get past, but it's a slight annoyance for now.

Still pleased with TrueCoach!

Review Source: Capterra

Overall, I still find TrueCoach very valuable to me!

Pros
It delivers the program to the client automatically. Updates are immediate. Communication is seamless. Features are easy to use. Response time for help is quick and helpful. It's organized pretty well.

Cons
There are some things that I still use Google Drive for that I feel could be in TrueCoach. Going back and forth wastes some time.

Response from TrueCoach


Thank you for such an honest review Keith. We appreciate your support and are hard at work to deliver the best solution possible for our community.

We would love to learn what features google drive is still providing for you.

Overall, I have used this software for 3 years now and I wouldn't change to anything else. Best out there!

Pros
I love being able to copy and paste training sessions onto the next week. Editing is super simple and my clients always get what they need. Responses are sent real-time and I can do everything from my phone if I have to.

Cons
Sometimes it can be a little slow with the video uploads. Which can be frustrating for my clients.

Best online platform so far

Used daily for free trial

Review Source: Capterra

I had a great trial run with TrueCoach. I am choosing them for my online training clients. I'm looking forward to new features shortly.

Pros
I've used a few different online training platforms, but TrueCoach has been the easiest to navigate for me and the client. Has a clean look and has a good exercise library with correct form shown unlike some other platforms.

Cons
There isn't a payment processing option, but is in work according to TC support. Has a few less features compared to competitors, but I know they have a lot in the works.
