Overall a great app. I only use it to build a weekly workout.

2017-11-09

Great way to electronically generate and save workouts.

Pros

Love the exercise database and ability to add new exercises.

Cons

Say I want the client to complete as many supersets as possible in 5 minutes, or do the superset EMOM.

Very good; software is easy to use and intuitive

2018-06-16

Pros

That has almost all the features we need as personal trainers, with tools for nutrition plans and workouts; foods database is very complete and also is the exercises database, which include videos

Cons

It should include a BMR/TDEE calculator for clients, using data provided (weight, height, age, gender, physical activity per week); also it would be good to have an IMC calculator

I love this app! My personal trainer uses it for all her clients, and we love it! So easy to use!

2018-06-28

It's really helping me keep up my workout schedule! I used to have a very hard time maintaining a routine; FitSW has made it a lot easier!

Pros

It's very easy to get to your various workouts, it keeps completed workouts on file so you can still reference them.

Cons

I can't figure out how to duplicate workouts on my own. If for example my trainer misses a day, or forgets to input a workout, I don't know how to duplicate an already existing workout!

Good overall software, needs a few improvements to the app features that are not integrated across.

2017-10-26

Increased client compliance, increased client competence in completing workouts on their own.

Pros

Extensive (and expanding) database. Linked demos of exercises.

Cons

Inability to search via muscle group when creating workouts, rather needing specific word combo/orders in website.

Exactly what I needed to help me better track all of my clients and their information!

2017-08-31

FitSW saves me time because it lets me quickly build client workouts, diet plans and map out client goals.

Pros

I also like how responsive the FitSW team is to my feature requests and improvement requests.

Cons

One thing I guess I could mention is there are a lot of exercises in the exercise database - many of which I don't use.

Good value, mostly quick navigation, found a glitch and work around in edit function

2017-12-29

Pros

The exercise data base is pretty well stocked, and it is easy to add them. Clients can easily access their plans from their phones, it links to nutrition tracking.

Cons

Some of the saved videos don't display great form and function, others have ads. The scheduling series portion is a little cumbersome.

Took a little bit to get used to but once I figured it out it's super easy

2018-06-23

Pros

I like that I can look back on a client history to see where they're trending.

Cons

If you simply use the arrows the values go by .1 so it took me a few times to figure it out. The automatic emails to clients also leave something to be desired.

It's a great and affordable software that does what it says.

2017-08-31

Clients can see their progress therefore it makes tracking my clients progress easier.

Pros

Would be great if I could somehow embed it into my website so clients could see their progress through it.

Cons

Unfortunately the app keeps crashing on my iPhone 7 when I try to view the graphs. This has been a problem for a while and been in fact in touch about the issue but nothing has change.

Anna Rosbury

My experience so far has been good! I like the overall idea of FitSW.

2018-06-14

YouTube videos are a great addition to this software! I love being able to look back on videos and descriptions WHILE I am working out!

Pros

Mostly I like the YouTube videos associated with certain workouts so in case I forget how to do a certain move, it is a good reminder.

Cons

For example, I would prefer better descriptions and an easier way to view each day OR all days at once, more like a calendar view (daily, weekly, monthly).

Use for personal training and online consulting

2017-09-01

Frees up time in fitness programming each client. A great way to communicate consistently and effectively with each client.

Pros

Adding own workouts to exercise database. Exercise demo option.

Cons

Limit on # of workouts created. Limit on # of progress pictures. Having to pay for certain functions. Can only mark workouts as complete or delete them. Would like a "not complete" button to monitor consistency. Nutrition logging a little tedious.
