I really like it. I tried PT distinction for awhile but didn't like it. It fits my style of program

2017-10-24

Easy client management - I run my entire business using this software and Facebook.

Pros

I like that you keep updating it and making it better so that it stays in line with your competitors.

Cons

I think you changed it so that now I have to use the calendar to copy a programme from a current client to a profile which I am currently logged into......... but in the past there was an option to do this in the clients 'training programme' section.

Happy Customer, but it is missing features and it is expensive.

2018-04-30

The software is great. I used it for a long time, and it met my needs. I just out-grew it.

Pros

It is very easy to use and it looks very professional.

Cons

Missing the ability to manage classes. Payment processing is, still, in beta and buggy.

Trainerize Review

2017-04-18

Not only has Trainerize embraced that portion of the industry but is constantly evolving in supporting my business making it easy to manage from the sales and marketing standpoint.

Pros

From my management of the business to what my clients are able to use when training.

Cons

My only complaint is to make using the Zappa easier. I've had a difficult time connecting all the systems together and stopped using them all Together.

Excellent program. I highly recommend it!

2017-10-25

This program helps me manage my fitness clients and their programs.

Pros

It's nearly everything a fitness professional needs to manage their clients' training, especially online clients.

Cons

It lacks a proper scheduling element for live sessions (no problem scheduling online sessions), and the payment processing element is still in beta and not yet very useful.

Essential Tool for Fitness Professionals

2019-02-08

This tool has helped us to automate areas of our coaching business and improve accountability with our online and in-person clients.

Pros

The program design features are best-in-class, and the Payments feature has been a game changer for our business.

Cons

The changes to the Master Programs feature were frustrating.

Great experience so far but some room for improvement

2018-07-25

By using Trainerize I have been able to simplify my business while helping my clients get better results than before. I love that everything can be done through an app since everyone has a smart phone, it's super convenient. I think it is a solid service and worth every penny. However, I do think that there is some room for improvement. In the future, if the three features I mentioned in the cons section are added I'd be willing to give the service a perfect 10/10. It's already really good but a few tweaks here and there would make it amazing.

Pros

Relatively easy to use, large library of workouts, extensive freedom to customize programs, simple and attractive website design, messaging inside the app, ability for clients to easily pay and set up recurring payment, ability to keep track of income.

Cons

Lacking some services (to my knowledge) that would greatly improve user experience such as files for pdf's and pictures to easily send to clients, ability to set up habits for clients to track, and ability to modify/add scheduled messages for more automation.

Great for online coaching

2019-07-16

I am able to simply and cost-effectively supply online training to clients around the world.

Pros

My clients find it very easy to use.

Cons

For example, I would like to be able to track session attendance outside of Trainerize in the Google Sheet so that I can track long term compliance.

Hi Tristan!

Wow, thank you so much! We are thrilled you and your clients are loving the Trainerize app!

Your idea regarding being able to track session attendance, sounds like a cool feature to have in Trainerize's future.

Could you email help@trainerize.com with more details on how that would look? We can pass that on to the developers and they can get in touch with you if it is something they are going to add to Trainerize.

Stay tuned for more exciting releases and updates :)

Trainerize is a win-win for me and my clients!

Plus, it's allowed me to get serious about providing online training.

Pros

Ease of use, intuitive functionality, ever-growing exercise library, ability to add my own videos, marketing/brand site included

Cons

Wish there was an easy payment function for my clients directly in Trainerize, but Trainerize has partnered with Zapier to allow us to integrate payment from other sources.

Interface and ease of use.

2019-04-10

However, as a coach, keeping track of payments is and session delivery is massively important, and Trainerize could offer a better interface for this.

Pros

I like that you can connect external apps such as MyFitnessPal as it allows you to gain a greater insight into client behaviour patterns. It also adds another way to hold your client accountable to their actions which is invaluable as a trainer.

Cons

The price was slightly too much for my budget compared to other similar apps and software.

Trainerize is by far the best online personal training software available.

2017-10-25

Trainerize enables me to easily design complex training programs and deliver them to clients using a medium that's innovative and professional.

Pros

What i like most is that it has tremendous functionality and ease of use on both ends, for the trainer and for the client.

Cons

The thing I like least is that Paypal is the only point of sale program that is set up to be quickly implemented.

Saves me so much time!!

2019-02-05

It's radically changed the ease of delivery of exercise programs and given my clients a fun way to experience community that isn't isolated to facebook or something similar.

Pros

- Once you get the hang of it, writing training programs is SO FAST - Provides a personal experience for each client - The ability to run group programs but still provide a customized approach to programming and coaching!

Cons

- it's set up to be training only so I have to improvise in order to provide lifestyle and nutrition coaching as well - reporting has a lot of room for improvement for a business growth and development stand point (processing payments, tax statements, marketing/advertising)

Trainerize Review

2018-09-25

I use this app for not only workout plans but also to talk to my clients, post things for them, schedule things for them and so much more.

Pros

The messenger, payment system, marketing settings and so much more has helped me grow my business.

Cons

I cannot find one thing that I do not like about this app. Out of all the pros, the one that is not the most impressive is that the videos you post can only be 30 seconds long.

Seems to be made for Trainers and Clients by Trainers and Clients!

2017-04-18

Even at corporate gyms before I was independently training I used the app to give my services more value and sale more at my respective clubs.

Pros

Best feature has to be the push notifications/reminders.

Cons

I know this feature is soon to come.
