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.

Pros

The people at CC are more than happy to help and even jump on a call. They are constantly bringing updates to make the platform even better and are super engaged with their clients (us coaches).
The behavior change programs are outstanding. Even better is the fact that you can create your own or modify existing programs that sound like you and your brand, not someone else.
They’ve been very helpful when I’ve had questions on how to implement something. And I love using this platform to help my clients get the best out of the program that they’ve purchased.

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.

Cons

I think the biggest weakness is the messaging system. Coaches don't like using a separate app for communication and clients prefer using texts.
The only missing feature I can think of is a community feature where challenge participants can connect with each other (off of Facebook). This feature is coming soon.
It's been a hard sell to get everyone to change.

WOW this is incredible!

Reviewed 7 years ago

I tried a lot of softwares before starting my online business. I actually really liked a number of them, then I got to PT Distinction, I couldn't believe what was possible on this software. As I worked my way through the tutorial videos I just thought WOW this is incredible. The systems you can set up, the coaching you can produce and the branding are unbelievable. There are many great softwares for online training but PT Distinction simply blows them all away.

Pros

It has everything needed to be successful as an online personal trainer and coach.

Cons

The only con I can think of is that it takes a bit more time to set up than some other softwares. However, this is because it is branded 100% as my own so I need to put in my logos, descriptions, email address and integrate to my website. Well worth the small effort and now I have my own online platform.

Vendor response

Hi Bea, Thank you, I'm pleased your loving PT Distinction so much and it's helping you do so well with your online business. I think your right about the tutorial videos, it is too easy to miss them and with that totally miss out on seeing the power of PTD. We will set up some clickable walk throughs which are very obvious and guide trainers seamlessly. Thank you for your kind words and for your constructive feedback. Tim

The Best Software for Fitness and Nutrition Coaches

Reviewed 2 years ago

I am able to effectively and efficiently manage a lot of clients with this software. I really like that I can use exercises from the video library or customize them myself. I love how user friendly the interface is. I have no complaints. From Day 1, I could navigate the software without even watching the provided tutorials. They also give you access to a FB group so you can see any future updates on the way as well as get any questions answered.

Pros

I love that is is very user-friendly for the client and the coach and makes communication efficient.

Cons

The only thing I would like to show up in the future is a voice-to-text feature on the messenger when using a computer to address client check-ins.

Joining PTD was the best thing I ever did for my PT business.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Joining PTD was the best thing I could have done for my PT business. It opened up so many opportunities for me and allows me to provide such a better service for my clients. My business has grown so much over the past couple of years and this is down to PTD. I would highly recommend it, you will not regret signing up.

Pros

Being able to coach more clients in one go. Setting this up is so simple.

Cons

The fact my WIX website is quite slow with the integration, however this will all be solved when the new version of the app is out for PTD which is very soon! PTD offer a mini site anyway so I use this at the moment until the release of the new app!

Thank you for such a great review Jo. I'm pleased we've played a small part in helping you, your clients, and your business.

Better for studio with multiple trainers

Pros

The functionality of this platform is very good. There's nothing you can't do as a trainer and nutrition coach.

Cons

The abundance of functionality works against the ease of use for me. It took months to get up and running and even then, the programming was time consuming and cumbersome for me.

Amazing software for online personal training and hybrid training

Reviewed 6 years ago

See above. It has helped me to become a better coach and train more clients.

Pros

The messaging centre is phenomenal. I can send or schedule text messages, in app messages and emails to individual clients and groups of clients in seconds. The impact this has had on my coaching is huge. I also love the flexibility of the software and program builder to do everything I want to do in the way I want to do it. My clients find it very easy to use.

Cons

It takes a bit of time to set up the website integrations and the app branding. This is not a massive problem as they show you how to do it and even do it with you live in the free Masterclass.

Vendor response

Thank you Richard. The messaging centre is one of my favourite features as well! Tim

Great software to integrate into your coaching business

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's been fantastic for my business, I have all of my own videos in the app but I also occasionally use the standard ones that come with the software.

Pros

The coaching ability of the software, it's not just an exercise program. You can set up template programs and reuse aspects of them for future clients or large programs you create so you're not reinventing the wheel each time yet you can quickly make the programs bespoke.

Cons

I coach a lot of triathletes and I still need to use training peaks for distance training and recording. If I could drag and drop the programs in a big calendar view that would be helpful.

Online Fitness Coach Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

I can have lots of clients with PT Distinction, so many that I have 2 other employees now with my business. Highly recommend.

Pros

Love the features! I can send automated emails & texts to clients. Set up different groups and templates. Add my own exercises and programs. Its perfect for an online coach with a full roster.

Cons

The only issue I've seen is when clients do the workout, if they close out the app it will cancel their workout, but that makes sense to me.

Thank you for the brilliant review Gentry. It's great your online coaching business is growing so well, keep going!

A Great Choice for Personal Trainers

Reviewed 2 years ago

I am finding it very easy to deliver a high quality coaching experience to my clients using PT Distinction. Not only is it high quality, but I feel like I have more time to actually provide coaching without feeling like I'm reinventing the wheel with each new client I get.

Pros

I really enjoy the ability to automate through groups. With my course and messaging set up before the client even begins it leaves me to do what I love to do most, coach!

Cons

There is a slight learning curve when you first start out. The software is very customizable and because of that it is very easy to get overwhelmed with how to set everything up initially.

Completely Re-Shaped My Life

Reviewed 2 years ago

I was planning on setting up with PT Distinction a long time ago, but never got round to it. Then the CoVID19 pandemic forced my hand, and I can honestly say - it's the greatest business decision I've ever made. Not only has it allowed my clients to actually thrive during the lockdown, and allowed me to support them mentally and physically throughout - it's given me a balance in my life that I never thought possible with the number of clients I have. Completely life changing.

Pros

The ability to educate and empower my athletes, along side programming. It's not just about giving the clients exercises, but being able to actively COACH them throughout the whole process is a game changer.

Cons

I would like a little more versatility when it comes to personalising the coaching points for individual exercises. Each exercise has coaching points in text format and video formatting - which is brilliant. But having a section on the prescription of each movement (the same place you have the sets, reps, load, time etc.) where you can personalise and prescribe the unique execution for that individual. For example - "focus more on biasing weight distribution through your heels" during the squat - would be an absolute game changer for me.

Vendor response

Thank you for the amazing review Jonathon, I'm so happy PT Distinction has had such a big impact on your clients coaching and on your life. Regarding individualising exercise descriptions for specific clients you can do this in the program builder by clicking the 3 dot menu on an exercise and selecting exercise settings, any edits to the description here will only show in the program you are currently building and not across all clients.

It has been amazing and once you get used to the software there is no going back to the old way.

Pros

This product the guys have created save you so much time and help you stay in better contact with clients and members with their automated systems that can be run from the software.

Cons

It would be good if clients could see there daily calories which the coach has set along with Marconutrient breakdowns, possibly having a traffic light system of clients on red if they are not sticking them, amber and green if they are doing well.

Exceptionally Versatile Personal Trainer/Coaching Software

Reviewed 3 years ago

Incredible software. If you are an online coach you need this. It can be overwhelming though because it can do just about everything. It almost has too many features, but you can choose how advanced you want to be with it.

Pros

You can do just about anything with it. It has an immense video library of exercises you can pull from to build programs for clients. Anything you want your clients to be doing you can schedule for them using PTD. They have a private Facebook page where the developers answer questions, which is very helpful.

Cons

VERY hard to use, at first. Takes some time to learn the basics and if you want to learn some of the more advanced features its going to be a while. Now that I understand it, it is awesome. There are still dozens of features I am not even using because I just don't have the time to try and figure them out.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review Samuel. You're correct PT Distinction is the only software that does everything needed for quality online training. To make it crazy easy to use simply go to your clients dashboard and hit Add. From here you can add anything for your clients in just a couple of clicks.

Looks professional

Reviewed 2 years ago

I love that my clients receive branded notifications - I also love that paperwork is no longer necessary. So many good features on this software. The Facebook support group also provides a good two-way communication between users and developers.

Pros

Not paying additional cost for app. It adds so much value to my face-to-face clients and I am now looking to grow my business online as I believe I can provide an even better service and value for money as an online coach.

Cons

Navigation around site could be simpler. I would also like to see an app for the PT end which allows you to do everything you can do on the desktop version - for example, I'd like to be able to amend programs, comment on food diary etc on a mobile device instead of solely my laptop.

Vendor response

Thank you for the great review Paige. Navigation should be very simple, all you need to know is this; - To give something to a client go to the clients dashboard and click Add. - To give something to a group of clients go to a group dashboard and click Add. - To add a template go to Templates, chose the type and click Add. You can also do everything as a trainer on your phone, simply login to the web portal on your mobile and it loads up the web app which has all trainer features at the palm of your hand. We're very happy you love all of the features and your custom apps!

An effective platform for online coaching

Reviewed 2 years ago

The support from of PT distinction has been great. Efficient and fast with their replies. Having the Facebook support group helps the development of my own knowledge.

Pros

There are lots of features on this platform that have helped deliver online coaching to my clients in a professional and effective way. I really like all the communication tools. The way you can set up groups of clients and contact them as a cohort to help deliver instruction and motivational cues are beneficial to help grow a support network. The client view is very clean and easy to use. The feedback I've received has been very positive and my clients love having a platform to store all their fitness data, as well as track it! It's great to have the app service, as it means I'm easy to contact and also, my coaching tools are portable. And the video workout library is so helpful!

Cons

In the main, this platform is doing everything I need it to for now. The only thing I'd personally like to have is integration with Garmin and Strava, as I'm a run coach. But the integrations with MFP and Fitbit and Myzone are great.

PT Distinction

Best Software I have come across so far!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Best I have ever used and i was a big fan of Trainerize but PT Distinction literally dumps on any fitness platform out there.

Pros

Integration with other platforms such as MyFitnessPal makes life so much easier as you only need to use this platform for all of your clients nutrition and training programs. Also creating groups and setting up the time released forms and assessments to go out to every client you add into the group saves a coach so much time!!!!

Cons

it is a little bit confusing to navigate at first but once you get the hang of it it becomes fairly easy to use.

Vendor response

Hahaha, thank you for the fantastic review Keron. Can't believe Capterra let you say "PT Distinction literally dumps on any fitness platform out there" but I love it!!

Easy to Use

Reviewed 2 years ago

Amazing. I have been using this for over two years and I won’t be switching any time soon. PT distinction has become a vital part of my business being successful with easy of navigation. There is no way a client can escape me LOL.

Pros

The software is incredible easy to navigate for both the coach and the client. Simple habit tracking is what I looked for when I originally did this search and PT distinction hit the nail on the head perfectly. Well priced for the service that is offered and over two years using it I won’t be switching anytime soon.

Cons

The only thing I could think of would be that it took a while to update the good play App Store app (good job I’m iPhone) but it was no issue it didn’t disrupt service.
