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.
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.
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.

Great training software for fitness and heath professionals

Reviewed 4 years ago

Wonderful software and I highly recommend it to health and fitness professionals who want to grow and scale an online business or in person.

Pros

PT distinction makes life incredibly easy when managing a book of online clients from check ins to content delivery.

Cons

Sometimes the support is rather difficult to work with and takes days upon days to figure problems out.

Vendor response

Thank you for the great review Chandler. We're pleased you love to software. Sorry our support has been slow for you, we generally answer all helpdask questions within a couple of hours and aim to have solutions at the first response. Occasionally our team does need to investigate further which can take a little more time, when this happens we still aim to have the solution with you in one business day. Thank you, and once again we're pleased you love the software!

PT Distinction

Reviewed 3 years ago

PTD has been easy to get the hang of with the university providing courses and tutorials and the customer support is always quick and helpful. It has allowed me to scale my online coaching business and help more people than I thought possible.

Pros

The ease of use for both the admin and clients end is amazing and they are constantly updating the software to make it even better. The options are endless when it comes to program design, content delivery and providing value to clients. There is also in app messaging which is great.

Cons

The learning curve is the biggest barrier to entry that I hear of for PTD but I didn't find that to be the case. They provide free learning and courses to get your head around it. Any new software will take some time to get your head around so it wasn't an issue for me.

Vendor response

Thank you for the awesome review Gavin. I'm very happy you love the endless features and ease of use for you and your clients.

Outdated

Reviewed 7 months ago

Only have it for the ease of use for clients - would have switched back to Trainerize if Trainerize worked similar to PT Distinction in how they view their workouts.Probably should have switched back. Trainerize is much easier to use, setup programs, and change things on the fly with.

Pros

Ease of use for clients, newer updates on the mobile app are nicer.

Cons

Creating programs and any kind of scheduling on the calendar is not user friendly.They do not like feedback.Simple things that would make life easier on the coach like drag and drop to move workouts around a monthly calendar and add tracking items/ habits to a monthly calendar or atleast having the calendar in the same view as when you're adding workouts, habits, tracking etc to the clients calendar would make life oh so much easier.As it is you have to constantly check go back or refresh the calendar on a separate tab to double check and reference what you're doing.This has made me make many mistake in scheduling for clients.

Vendor response

Hi Josh, I'm pleased your clients are enjoying the app and find it easy to use. Have you seen our latest updates? Among other things, these include a month view and year view of the calendar. Any item can be dragged and dropped from one day to another. Was there anything else you found difficult?

The software that makes life easy

Reviewed 3 years ago

PT Distinction helped me to get off the ground with my online coaching business! But PT Distinction also helped me to scale and level up my business. I'm absolutely confident that I'm giving my clients an awesome experience thanks to my custom branded app and how I have the opportunity to deliver my programs.

Pros

As a personal trainer and health coach, this is the software to use. I'm nothing but happy and satisfied. It's easy to use, I can easily set-up everything I need and want to give to my clients. To offer my clients my own branded app is also another amazing feature. I also love their 5-star quick and efficient customer care service.

Cons

I'm looking forward to have a female in the exercise library. Other than that, I don't have any cons actually.

The most comprehensive fitness software you will find.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I love that I can do anything I need/want to do for my business. I can design programs in minutes. I can make changes that update across multiple clients at once. I can customize exercises, forms, assessments in addition to adding pdfs and tutorials. I have been able to customize a nearly year-long habit-based nutrition program that offers daily lessons and bi-weekly habits.

Cons

The only con is there is a bit of a learning curve with the software. Once you spend some time with it, I find it user-friendly but this can be overwhelming in the beginning.

Vendor response

Thank you for the great review Tom. I'm pleased we're playing a small role in your success.
