Personal Trainer Exercise Demo Video Updates

Share:

Recently we have released several updates to our Exercise List and Food List features for our iOS app, Android App, and our website. We have added the Exercise List and Food List display screens to Client accounts. Secondly, we have added the ability to see the personal trainer exercise demo video on the edit exercise screen. Additionally, we have added a new way to enter exercises and foods on the website among other things. Below are more details on these updates.

Exercise List and Food List For Personal Trainer Clients

In our latest app releases, we added the Exercise List and Food List screens. Previously only trainers could see these screens but now clients can as well. Unlike trainers, clients do not have the ability to update the exercise list or food list in our mobile apps. Specifically, clients can not add, edit or delete foods or exercises in these list in our apps. Only trainers can do this. Clients can, however, see demos or information links. They can also add these foods or exercises to diets or foods they are logging if they are granted permission by their trainer. As always, clients can also create their own food lists and exercise lists on the website at fitsw.com if their trainer has granted permission for this option.

Clients now can view the Exercise List and Food list. Trainers are still the only users that can update these lists.

Exercise Demo Videos and Food Info Links

We also recently added the feature to view any personal trainer exercise demo video or food info links right on the Edit Exercise or Edit Food screen. This makes it easy for trainers and clients to view the demos or info links without having to add the exercise or food to a workout / diet first. Just click the view button on the screen:

If you or your client want to see an exercise video demo, just click the “View” button on the Edit Exercise screen.

Adding Exercises and Foods to Personal Trainer Library

We recently updated the interface for adding exercise or foods to your library. We have improved these screens so that you can now update exercise or foods using a modal window. In contrast, previously fitness coaches had to edit these items in place. This gives users more room to enter information and allows them to see everything they are entering better. This is especially helpful when entering a long personal trainer exercise demo video link.

Modal windows make entering or updating exercises and foods easier.

Custom Branded Fitness App for Personal Trainers

Share:

Have you ever wanted your own mobile Fitness App? The ability to offer clients your own app would take your business to the next level and add a professional touch to stand out from the competition. FitSW now offers a custom branded fitness App for personal trainers. Personal Trainers can combine their brand with all the features on FitSW’s app to have it all packaged professionally in a customized app.

Custom Branded Fitness App allows you to have your very own logo app icon.
Get your very own custom branded fitness app for you and your clients to use. Your app will show your logo and an app icon with your logo.

Benefits of a Custom Branded Fitness App

Having your own fitness app is more than just being able to brag that you have your own app on the Google Play or Apple App store (although that is kinda cool too). In addition, there are four key ways your own custom branded app benefits your business:

Personalized

Your own custom app allows you to personalize your client’s experience with an app that has your branding. It gives your clients access to an app made just for them and you are the one to give them access to it. This type of personalization increases client retention and is appealing to new clients.

Professional

Your own custom branded app can help your business look even more professional. For instance, your very own app on the app store shows existing and potential clients that your business is polished and professional. As a result, this can help you stand out from the competition.

Brand Strengthening

A customized app with all your personal training business logos really helps grow your brand awareness among client and potential customers. With your brand highlighted through each interaction with the app, clients will connect even more with your business’ brand.

Affordable

A fully featured, polished fitness app these days costs tens of thousands of dollars to develop. Instead, with FitSW’s custom branded app for personal trainers, you can have all of the functionality you need along with your brand for a low one-time fee. FitSW’s fee is just $99 for Android and $199 for iOS. You can do one app or both.

Custom Branded Fitness App Features

FitSW’s Custom app includes all the features of the regular FitSW App and customizes the following:

  • We add your logo for the App Icon and Login screen. We will replace all FitSW logos with your Logo.
  • Your chosen app name instead of FitSW.

After payment ($99 for Android, $199 for iOS), your app will be on the Google Play / Apple App store within 1 to 2 weeks. In order to signup for the Custom App, you just need to login to fitsw.com and then click on “Custom App” under the “Account” menu. There you can select the Custom App or Apps you would like to purchase. More information on FitSW’s Custom Branded Fitness Apps.

Customized Website Options

We also offer personal trainers and fitness coaches the opportunity to customize the fitsw.com website. We will replace the FitSW logo in the upper left of the website with your logo. Therefore, anytime you or any of your clients view fitsw.com you will see your logo instead of FitSW. We offer this option for a $50 one-time cost.

Tracking Personal Training Clients’ Workouts

Share:

In our last post, we talked about our new completion tracker dashboard in your client lists. In our latest iOS and Android app releases, we have enabled tracking personal training clients’ workouts even easier. We have added this tracking information to the screen where you view a particular client’s workout, diet, or task list. The app displays this immediately below the personal training clients name. This allows you to have a summary of how your fitness coaching client is doing right there on their workout, diet, or task page. Your clients will also see this summary which will help keep them on track.

Tracking Personal Training Clients Workouts Example
We have added a new completion status bar to each client’s workout, task, and diets page for you and your clients to monitor progress.

Workout Completion Percentage Summary

You and your fitness coaching client can tell how they are doing with just a glance at the completion bar. The size of the green bar will show the percentage of how many workouts (or tasks or diets) your clients have marked as complete. Orange represents workouts that users have designated as “Not Met”. The Grey portion of the bar represents workouts that are still classified as open. Tracking personal training clients’ workouts just got even easier.

Tracking Personal Training Clients Detailed Numbers

Below the progress bar the app displays additional details on these workout completion stats. On the left, just above the Completed tab is the exact percentage in green of completed workouts. Next to it in parenthesis is the actual number of completed workouts. To the right, above the “Not Met” tab and in orange are the number for workouts classified as not met. Lastly, on the right side above the “Open” tab are the “Open” workouts numbers in grey. These numbers help to provide you and your clients with a complete picture of how a client is doing with respect to getting their workouts, diets, or tasks done. It makes tracking personal training clients’ workouts, diets, and tasks easier for both you and your clients.

Changes To Note

We did re-order the “Open”, “Complete”, and “Not Met” tabs in order to have them line up with the percentages and progress bar in a way that made sense. “Complete” is now first, then “Not Met”, and finally “Open”. We changed this from the way we previously laid out the tabs, because fits better with the completion bar. The default tab shown when accessing the workout, diet or tasks screen is still the “Open” one.

Fitness Coach Client Tracker Dashboard for Mobile Apps

Share:

Recently, we improved our mobile app Workout, Tasks and Diet Client lists by adding a fitness coach client tracker dashboard on each of these pages.  This is similar to the update we recently added on our web application at fitsw.com. We discuss that client tracker dashboard on the web app here.  We have added this feature to both our iOS and Android apps.

Fitness Coach Client Tracker Dashboard For Mobile Apps
Fitness Coaches and Personal Trainers can now see a summary of all their clients Workout Completion rates in the Workouts tab. They can also see this summary for Diets and for Tasks in their respective tabs.

Tracking Workout Completion with Fitness Coach Client Tracker

This new tracker dashboard shows the percentage of workouts that each client has completed.  In addition, it also shows the percentage of workouts that have been marked as “Not Met” along with workouts that are “Open”.  In parenthesis, next to each percentage, is the number of workouts for each category.  This client tracking dashboard provides personal trainers with an easy way to keep tabs on their client and see how they are doing at a high level.  As always, the personal trainer or fitness coach can tap on the clients name and see specific workout details.

Tracking Diet Completion and Task & Goal Completion

We also added this fitness coach client tracker dashboard to the Tasks Client List.  Similarly we added it to the Diet Client List screen as well.  It displays the same completion bar graphs along with percentages and number counts for both Tasks and Diets.

The Fitness Client Task Completion Summary Screen is similar to the summary screen for Workouts

Marking Workouts, Tasks, and Diets Complete

Marking workouts, tasks and diets as “Complete” or “Not Met” is still done the same way.  All you need to do is swipe left on the particular workout (or diet or task) while viewing the Workout list.  This will display a menu to the right where you can update the classification.  This post describes marking workouts, tasks and diets as “Complete” or “Not Met”.

Personal Trainer Website Updates

Share:

We recently updated the FitSW.com website with an improved layout and design for our users. Personal trainers, fitness coaches and their clients will all find the site even easier to use.  These personal trainer website updates make the site easier to use overall with:

  • Updated look that’s more interesting to use for trainers and their clients
  • Improved navigation to help trainers and client quickly get to where they need to go
  • New layout to make it clearer to see the information you are looking at.

Personal Trainer Website Accessible from Any Device

FitSW has both Android and iOS apps for mobile devices.  However, our updated personal trainer website is still optimized so that it can work on any device – mobile included.  This way, clients can decide which platform they like best.  On the new website, the design and layouts of screens like workouts and meal plans will adjust to fit your device.  These adjustments will create an excellent mobile user experience for both you and your clients.

When viewing from a mobile device, the view of the Client Dashboard adjusts to best display the information trainers and their clients need.

Personalized Trainer Profile Page

One of the page updates that we are really excited about is the new Trainer Page.  This feature allows personal trainers and fitness coaches to easily create their own webpage.  On that page, they can share whatever info they would like to with exiting clients and potential clients.  The new look presents a professional look to any clients or potential clients.  

Personal Trainer Website Updates Fitness Personalized Trainer Profile Page
Personal Trainers and Fitness Coaches using FitSW can easily create their own Personalized Trainer Page for free in order to share information with current and potential clients.

On this personalized page, trainers and coaches can specify the services they offer along with locations that they serve.  They can choose whether to include Phone and / or Email.  They can also add additional information about themselves in additional sections.  These sections include: General Bio Info, Training or Coaching Specialties, Certifications and more.  There is even a place for clients to make a payment on the trainer page.  The trainer just have to have payments set up which is extremely easy.

Personal Training Client Workout, Diet, Task Dashboard

Personal Training Clients Workout, Diet, Task Dashboard

We completely revamped the first page trainers see when they login to fitsw.com – the Client List page.  We have transformed it into a dashboard where personal trainers and fitness coaches can quickly and easily get a summary view of how their clients are doing.  This personal training client workout, diet, and task dashboard provides summary statistics on each client.  Here is what this new view looks like:

Personal Training Client Workout Diet Task Dashboard
The Client List page has been redesigned to help trainers better keep tabs on all their clients at a glance.

Quickly Understand Your Personal Training Client’s Success

As seen above the Workouts, Tasks, and Diets buttons have been replaced by data to summarize how well your clients are adhering to the plans you give them.  If we look at these columns closer here is what we will see:

Personal Training Client Workout Diet Task Dashboard Columns
These columns summarize Workouts, Task, and Diet data on the new Client List page.

For Workouts, this particular client has Completed 78% of what his trainer assigned him.  The data shows the actual number completed in parenthesis (74).  3% of his workouts were marked as Not Met, and he has 19% that are classified as Open.  The green bar corresponds to the percentage complete, orange corresponds to Not Met, and grey to the percentage of workouts that are open.  Similarly, trainers should read Tasks and Diet Data the same way.

This new dashboard helps trainers understand all this information with just a glance so that they can quickly identify how to respond to how their clients are doing.

Dialing in On the Results and Creating New Workouts

Fitness Coaches and Trainers can then quickly go to the specific clients Workout list by just clicking on that summary data.  In the specific client’s Workout List, trainers can Add / Edit and Delete workouts just like before.   Same goes for Tasks and Diets.

Other Client List page Updates

In addition to the Personal Training Client Workout, Diet, Task Dashboard  updates mentioned above, we also made the following changes:

  • Moved Delete button out to underneath the Clients name instead of in its own column.
  • Updated the Messages button to an icon next to the clients name.
  • Created a separate Progress Column where trainers can choose to view Progress Graphs or Progress Pictures of a specific client.

Stay tuned for future changes.  We will be adding the Personal Training Client Workout, Diet, Task Dashboard graphs mentioned above to our iOS app and Android app very soon.

Personal Trainer Custom Web Page Updates

Selecting and Displaying Country on Personalized Web Page

If a personal trainer is doing in-person training, then they likely want to let potential customers where they offer services.  On the personal trainer custom web page, users can include their country.  In addition, trainers can also include the postal code / area so that potential clients will be able to find them and know where they are based.   Previously users could only select between a few countries but based on feedback from FitSW users from all over the world, we have now added all countries.  Users can select their country on our iOS App, Android app, or on our website.

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.

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 create whether its Body Fat, Weight, Push-ups per minute, etc.  More details on how to enter progress are specified here.

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.
