Pros
I really like all the features of it and the flexibility is awesome. Especially all the automation possibilities are perfect for building and scaling your (online) fitness business.

How easy it is to use for myself which saves me lots of time. My clients find it very easy to use as well so it's a win win.

DG

Darragh G.

Everyone was very helpful and the support and education they have in place now is the best. They have a great community with users that are always willing to help each other.

Cons
I switched over from MyPTHub because I was having a horrible experience with them.

AD

Aaron D.

The app freezes and clients lose their workout tracking when their phone locks - PTD blames user error but this never happened with trainerize.

The lack of responsibility that they seem to take in tackling this very clear BUG does not sit well with me. The search feature in the mobile app does not work period.

Fast. Reliable and really cool!

Reviewed 10 months ago

To be able to create memberships has been such a great feature for me! I’ve always wanted to learn more about this. PTD has everything in one space. Allowing me to have everything in one space has been freeing up so much time and decreasing the stress around building my online business.

Pros

I love that it is so easy to use. Helping me save time and overthinking. The PTD University is such a great feature and helped me get setup in no time!

Cons

I would love to have a app for the trainer. This way I can get instant notifications from clients and track their efforts.

Lots of Integrations - Overall Poor UI - Slow Development and Lots of Bugs & Unattractive Features

Pros

PTD has a lot of capabilities and integrations.

Cons

I wish that I had more good things to say about PTD. We made the switch from Trainerize to create an overall more integrated experience for our clients -- I was drawn to PTD only for the google sheets integration which is big for our client delivery - however PTD has many issues 1.) The UI looks very old and looks as though it hasn't been updated in years. It's slow - to me it looks like something...

I've tried many coaching apps and I've enjoyed working with PTD the most

Reviewed 3 months ago

My overall experience with PTD has been great. I feel like I've had everything I need to learn how to use the software and it is extremely adaptable to use which is great for a growing coaching business.

Pros

I love that I can send messages to multiple clients at the same time, the ability to have a calendar to keep me organized, and the ability to attach videos, pdfs, and links within coaching content.

Cons

At this point in time I am still learning the software so I don't know what I would add or remove.

Great Software

Reviewed 16 days ago

Customer service is incredible. Especially combining this and the services of PTD Ninja make the services phenominal. The automations and the power of this software is great. I have been using it for 7years as i got fed up of using spreadsheets with my 1-2-1 clients. Then over time we opened a studio and we coach all our clients via it. We also invested in PT Ninja to help build out or system too.

Pros

The software is easy to use once you get use to it.

Cons

Getting to understand the software is the hardest part and sometimes getting the clients to engage using it, but once they have become practiced they find it easy like any software.
