Personal Trainer Workout Tracker Improvements

We recently made updates to our personal trainer workout tracker that enable trainers and clients to classify workouts as “Complete”, “Not Met”, and “Open”.  This also works for Diets and Tasks but in the post we will discuss mostly how it applies to workouts.  These new update are available on iOS, Android and on our website.

Personal Trainer Workout Tracker Improvements Example
In our mobile apps, users can swipe left to classify a Workout, Diet or Task as Complete, Note Met, or Incomplete / Open.

Tracking Workout Completion at FitSW.com

To mark a Workout as “Complete” on the website, go to the specific users Workout page.  In the “Status” column you will see either a red square, green check mark, or orange “X”.  By clicking these, personal trainers and their clients can change the workouts Status to Open, Complete or Not Met.

Click the 1st icon in the Status column of the workout list to change the status of the workout.

If you have email notifications turned on, trainers can be notified of workout completions or other status updates.  Trainers and clients can also click the word “Status” at the top of the Status column in order to sort Workouts by their status.

Tracking Workout Completion in our iOS and Android Apps

In our mobile apps, trainers or clients can swipe any workout in their workout list to the left and the app will display options like “Complete”, “Not Met”, etc depending upon which tab the user is on.  We have also added a “Not Met” tab in addition to the “Open” and “Complete” tabs we had before.  Now, users can see which workouts have been classified as Not Met.

Personal Trainer Workout Tracker Improvements Additional Tab
We have added a “Not Met” tab. Users can swipe any event to the left and choose how to classify the workout.

New Status Buttons on Workout Details Screen

We have also added “Complete” and “Not Met” buttons to the Workout Details screens as well.  Trainer and Clients will find this at the bottom of the Workout Details page so that they can mark the workout complete right there on the screen they were following along with.

Tracking Fitness Client Progress Assessment Updates

Tracking Fitness Client Progress Assessment Updates

We released new versions of the iOS app and Android App recently that allow personal trainers to view all of their clients assessments in a convenient Assessment List.  This makes tracking fitness client progress for these Assessments even easier.  Trainers can customize the assessments for each of their clients or use the same Assessments for all.  We even added a Default Assessments list that the trainer can customize. Every new client the trainer adds will then automatically have those specific Default Assessments.  Trainers can track progress for any Assessment they creates whether its Body Fat, Weight, Push-ups per minute, etc.  More details on how to enter progress are specified in this post.

Accessing New Assessment List Menu on the Mobile App

All personal trainers have access to our new Assessment List.  In iOS, trainers can access this in the “More” menu item. In Android, trainers can access this in the Side Bar menu.

Tracking Fitness Client Progress Assessment Updates Assessment Menu Item
The Assessment List is in the “More” menu on iOS and in the Sidebar on Android

Once a personal trainer taps on the Assessments List menu item, they will see a list of their clients along with an item called Defaults.

Tracking Fitness Client Progress Assessment Updates Assessment List
Trainers can choose which clients to view Assessments for or choose the Default Assessments which are automatically added to every new client the trainer adds.

Tapping on any client will show the specific clients Assessments.  The trainer can then Add / Edit or Delete Assessments for that client.

Default Assessments

The Default Assessments are automatically added to every new client that is added.  The trainer can edit or add to this list so that every new client added will get specific assessments.  This does not affect existing clients Assessments either – only new ones that are added will get the latest Default Assessments.

Tracking Fitness Client Progress Assessment Updates Default Assessments
The app automatically adds Default Assessments to any new client that the trainer adds . Editing Default Assessments will not affect existing clients Assessment Lists.

Adding Assessments

Trainers can add an Assessment for a client or to the Defaults by clicking the “+” symbol in the upper right.  The app will present a screen to enter in Assessment Name and Description.

Editing Assessments

Trainers can edit an Assessment by simply clicking on that assessment in the Assessment List.

Deleting Assessments

Trainers can delete an Assessment by Swiping Left on the specific assessment in the Assessment list.

All updates a trainer makes to their assessment lists will carry over to the Progress menu item. When trainers or clients go to enter progress data for a specific in the Assessment list, it will be there.  This makes it even easier for trainers to get setup for tracking fitness client progress.

We have added several usability improvements to the Personal Trainer Scheduler to make it better work with the Workout Builder.  The biggest one is that we now allow personal trainers to specify a time for their clients workout if they would like while the are building the workout.  The app / website then automatically adds the workout to both the trainer and client’s schedule.  This is currently implemented on our iOS app and our website.  It will be available on the Android app in two days.

If you haven’t used our scheduler before, there is more info on the basics and features of our scheduler here.  We also show you how to add a specific workout you create to your schedule calendar here.  Below we will show you how to do this in our mobile Apps.

Tracking Client Workout Results in iOS and Android

Tracking Client Workout Results

Comparing workout results with what was expected is a key component in any personal training relationship.  First of all, the personal trainer can gauge how a client is performing.  Also, it helps the trainer adjust future workouts to stay in line with a clients needs.  In addition, tracking holds the client accountable because they know their trainer is reviewing what they accomplished during a workout compared to what was expected.  In a previous post we discussed Client Workout Results Tracking on the web version of FitSW at fitsw.com. We have now added this Tracking Client Workout Results capability to both our iOS and Android apps.  Its an awesome feature because it lets personal trainers and clients effectively track client workout results.

Here is how it works:

Workout Details Page

Personal trainers or their clients can enter results view their Workout Details page.  There is now a Results button on this page that either the trainer or the client can tap in order to enter workout results data.

Workout Details Page iOS App

Tracking Client workout Results workout details page
Trainer or clients can hit the orange Results button in the upper right on iOS.   They can then enter in workout Results data.

Workout Details Page Android App

Tracking Client Workout Results Workout Details Page Android
Android users can tap the “Enter Results Data” text highlighted in red in this image.

Entering Personal Training Client Workout Results

After tapping the Results button, personal trainers and clients will be able to enter workout results in text fields. The entry boxes are slightly different between iOS and Android.  However, both apps automatically save data as the user enters it.

iOS Workout Results Entry

After tapping the Results button, additional text boxes will display underneath the originally defined workout details.  These additional text boxes say “Results” in them as a placeholder, but will allow you to enter workout result data.  The app automatically saves data and the user can simply click the orange “Done Results” button when they have finished.

Tracking Client Workout Results Workout Details Page Results Entry
Text boxes show up underneath the workout details fields that allow personal trainers or clients to enter workout results data.

Android Workout Results Entry

After tapping enter results on Android, a new screen will come up. This screen shows original workout details and allows users to enter the workout results underneath them. Once done, the user can click the back arrow and the app will automatically save the results data.

Reviewing Workout Results Data

Due to the way results data is setup, is that users can review the data again by just clicking the result buttons.  It doesn’t matter if the client is using iOS and the trainer is using Android.  They both can view the data that was entered for results.  Tracking client workout results is easy from any type of device.

We have recently enabled Personal Trainers and Fitness Coaches creating workout plans for multiple clients at once in our iOS app, Android App and at fitsw.com.  In the same way, Trainers and coaches can also add diet plans and tasks / goals for multiple clients at once.  This feature makes it easy for trainers who have clients on similar fitness plans to build out workouts and plans.  The trainer can then customize the workout with specific weights later by editing it individually.  Below are the details on how to create workout plans for multiple clients at once:

More than 5 Different Reps and Weights For Each Exercise

We have now added the ability for users to specify many different weights and reps for each exercise.  Previously the app only allowed users to specify up to 5 different weights and reps. Now users can add up to 10.  For example users can now create a workout that looks like this:

Personal Trainer Workout Creator Multiple Reps Weights
Trainers can now create workouts with more than 5 different reps and weights per exercise.

Users can create workouts like this by simply entering commas between each rep or weight will adding the exercise.  It should look like this:

Website users have been able to add exercises on the fly while building a workout for a while. Now, this same personal trainer workout creator improvement is available on the app.  Trainers no longer need to first add an exercise to their exercise list before they can use it in a workout.  Now, a trainer can build a workout and add an exercise right there from the Workouts tab and it will be added to their workout.  The app will save the exercise to the trainer’s exercise list.  Here is how to do it:

  1. Users should tap the Add Exercise button like they normally would while creating a workout.
