Personal training software for fit pros and gyms

About ABC Trainerize

ABC Trainerize is a web and mobile personal training solution (Web + Mobile App + Apple Watch App) for health clubs, fitness professionals and their members (clients). ABC Trainerize helps fitness clubs increase their revenue by streamlining member management and engagement functions as well as automating online program delivery.

The ABC Trainerize mobile app helps fitness businesses build and offer workout schedules and meal plans, and set nutrition levels to help members reach their target weight or fitness goals. Fitness clubs or fitness professionals can build, save and print training plan templates, workout details and fitness targets in PDF format, then copy and further tailor these from client to client. An in-app messaging feature connects trainers directly with clients and helps fitness clubs to improve member retention rates and stimulate engagement.

Gamification features such as badges - awarded upon the achievement of personal bests - or in-app chat-like messaging help to increase client motivation, as well as engagement with the software. Clients are encouraged to share their achievements on social media which provides advertisement for the fitness club. Trainers can also group clients into groups and offer group training mixed with workout activity which is auto-published into groups.

ABC Trainerize can be branded with a fitness club or trainer's logo and a personalized video can be included on the desktop login page and mobile app.

With in-app payments for automated subscription collection and a trainer marketplace, ABC Trainerize also assists fitness professionals with new client acquisition by matching clients with trainers based on their profile, services, location and specialty. Trainers can add their certifications, qualifications, etc. to further enhance their Trainerize.me profile.

ABC Trainerize offers a free 30-day, full feature trial.

Traiberize has allowed me to keep my trainees information, plans and schedule organized, reviewing and planning their progress and keeping all their information available noth for them and for me is easy and simple.

Pros

Practical, reliable, intuitive.
It allows to keep all my trainees, plans and workouts stored and ready to access and use with ease.

Cons

It can be slow to process input on some devices.

The great thing about Trainerize is that you can add your own exercise videos from your YouTube account very easily, which negates the worst aspect of Trainerize -- it's exercise selection.

Pros

The ability to schedule messages, workouts, check ins, and progress photos is easy and intuitive.

Cons

The built-in exercise options are lacking, and some of them are just unsafe exercises altogether.

Alternatives Considered

PT Distinction, TrueCoach, TrainHeroic and My PT Hub

Reasons for Choosing ABC Trainerize

Trainerize automates nearly all the things I do as a coach. Once I set things up, it's super easy to focus on coaching my clients.

Reasons for Switching to ABC Trainerize

Trainerize does everything average or above average. The rest of the competition does some things better, but doesn't do it all.

Best comprehensive app I've found. But for straight programming I would go with TrainHeroic, and for straight nutrition I would use Google Sheets.

Pros

The programs are easy to build, and the progression builder is very helpful for building out multiple week programs with overload.Client onboarding is simple, and you have the ability to customize intake forms, messages, etc.Easy to add your own exercises with videos. Built in library is extensive.Easy to make supersets and add rest periods.

Cons

When it comes to nutrition coaching, I've yet to find ANY app that works as well as the google sheets I created. There's no history of what the previous week's macros were. The app doesn't let you select a calorie level and then autopopulate the macros, you have to input macros until you get to the calories you want. There's no way to select a protein requirement (i.e. 0.8g/lb, 1g/lb, 1.2g/lb etc) or a carb/fat ratio. You only have preprogrammed tolerances of 10 or 20 or 30% so good luck coaching a bodybuilding client where you need +/- 2%.There's no charts at all correlating calories, BMR, body weight, etc.And then the "meal planner" that they charge you $45/month for is a complete joke. You can't set it to a client's individual goals. You have to use pre-programmed calories and macro ratios. There's no ability to deselect a wide variety of foods (just some basics like gluten or dairy.) There's no ability to select only certain foods. Most meals take 30 minutes or more to prepare. I've found it to be completely useless.The goals and habits are ok, but they can't link to any metrics, they have to be updated manually to show any progress, so it's all completely arbitrary.When it comes to programming, there's no way to program drop sets. Also, the instructions for the training week do not automatically come up when a client starts a session. I've had to go tell each client individually where to find instructions.

I am able to create programs fast for my clients. With this software, clients are able to get support from me in real time.

Pros

Easily drop in YouTube videos. Creating master programs is amazing because you can copy and customize templates easily. The mobile app seems to be easy for clients to use. I like the advanced progression capabilities, its easy to change reps and sets, and descriptions on one screen.

Cons

I am a climbing coach, so the layout of exercises and drills doesn't work as well in Trainerize since each drill needs more detail and some need extra video support. The customization of this could be better. The calendar feature could be better.

Response from ABC Fitness

Hey Mercedes!

We are thrilled you like using Trainerize to create programs with our Master Programs feature!

Thanks for your feedback regarding adding more detail to workouts and improving the calendar feature. Could you email us ([email protected]) with more information on what you would like the features to look like? We would love to learn more!
