Profile Notepad and Journal




There are times when trainers jot down high-level notes on their clients that need to be referenced frequently, as well as a note that might need to be assigned to specific assessments or exercises.

This week we released the ability to accomplish both of these functions.


Whether a trainer is working with a new client and needs to quickly record goals, motivating factors, medical issues, or just fun facts…this can now be completed on the Create Profile page.


As well as within the client Profile.


This is a lightweight note-taking feature that can be activated by clicking on the text box and selecting [Save].


The second type of note-taking functionality that our community has been asking for is the ability to assign a specific note to an assessment or exercise.


This is especially important for documenting if a client is limited in their ability to accomplish an assessment or any potential liability that can be referenced by date/time and staff member.


Note-taking is a foundational aspect of personal training and we are excited that the TrainerMetrics community has the opportunity to record more than just objective data on their clients.

Account Analytics





As a trainer, the ability to communicate accurate results over time to clients is "table stakes" and that's the primary reason why we built TrainerMetrics in the first place.

What has been missing is the ability to look at all client results on a single page. Whether it be a leaderboard or challenge, the aggregate view of how effective trainers are at getting clients to their goals should exist.

Now it does.

Account Analytics is a new feature that makes analyzing your client performance as easy as counting from 1 to 5. Screen Shot 2021-08-31 at 8.54.03 AM.png

Simply add the assessment/metrics you want to report on and select age groups, biological sex, timeframe…select [Run] and view a sorted list of clients that have made the most progress.

You'll also notice that you can view this data visually by selecting the Chart icon on the far right of the Report Details page.

Once you are satisfied with your new report, make sure to [Save] it to your Reports List so that you can review or share at any time.

This is our first step at being able to provide Owners, Manager, Trainers, and Clients a simple way to gain insights into the performance of their fitness services. More to come.





Profile and User Compliance





The idea of trainer and client "compliance" is a topic that has come up quite a bit within the TrainerMetrics community over the last year. Although trainers generally know when they should reevaluate their client's fitness, it's easy to forget.

That's why we released new Metrics Management settings and a refreshed Profile List to help managers, trainers, and clients stay on the same page when it comes to compliance.

Metric's Reminders is a simple way to set a standard amount of days between assessments. They can be set at the Account-level so that all profiles reference this information:

account-metrics-reminders_20200316.png *Weight is set at the account level to a default of 42 days.

Metrics Reminders can also be adjusted on the Profile-level, just in case your clients' needs are more customized compared to the general client:


If you are wondering how you can see this information from a high-level, take a look at your Profile List or one of your trainer's Profile Lists to see an actionable view of clients that have:

  • Not completed a PAR-Q.
  • Not completed at least 1 assessment (metric).
  • With an assessment (metric) that is overdue based on Metrics Reminders.
  • No future Goal Date or Goal Value.


For managers, this makes is extremely easy to review all trainers and make sure that clients are cleared for exercise, reevaluations are completed, and goals are established.

Goals Update





Until now trainers have only been able to set client goals for an individual assessment as well as they weren't able to set a goal completion date.

That's no longer the case.

Within a Profile, there is a new feature on the left-side navigation, "Goals". This page will show users all assessments that have been completed and relevant assessment data, making it very easy to set client Goal and Goal Date:


Note, the date field is labeled Next Goal and Next Goal Date. This makes it very easy to set multiple goals for the same assessment. For example, if a client wants to lose 10-pounds over the next 2 months, a trainer can set a 5-pound weight loss goal for each of the 2 months.


Set realistic goals, and track client progress until success.

It's that easy.

Metrics Management





We never thought that we would have developed have too many fitness assessments and tests until recently.

With over 60 assessments and calculations, the TrainerMetrics community let us know that it has been increasingly difficult to sift through all of the assessments and reports when trying to show class client results.

Now you can select exactly what assessments you want your account to display over every feature of TrainerMetrics including a Profile Overview, Fitness Testing, Metrics, and Reporting functionality.

To access these settings all you need to do is sign in to your account:

  • Click your name in the top right,
  • Select "Settings", and
  • Choose the "Metrics Management" tab, and
  • Uncheck all assessments that you want to hide.

This makes it simple to filter out every assessment and evaluation that doesn't make sense to your business or clients while keeping the ones that do.

Profile Reports v2





Profile reports got a new look as of today.

Instead of printing one-off reports, we updated your experience to provide flexibility in what you would like to include in your client Progress Reports.

We realized this was a total pain for trainers and most of them weren't providing their client's reports simply because it took too long and the couldn't assemble the reports that actually mattered.

Tip #1: Use the multi-select functionality to group all reports in a single PDF:

Tip #2: Any time you select more than one report, a cover page will be included:

Assembling different types of fitness reports is easier than ever. Whether you want to provide your client with recent updates, recommended corrective exercise, or blood pressure history, just select the reports and click "Print".

Movement Screens





Functional Movement Screens have arrived.


Over the last several years our customers have let us know how important Movement Screens are to their daily practice, and that they needed us to add the suite to TrainerMetrics:

  • Active Straight-Leg Raise
  • Shoulder Mobility
  • Rotary Stability
  • Trunk Stability Pushup
  • Inline Lunge
  • Hurdle Step
  • Deep Squat

Just like any other assessment, you can access the individual Movement Screens through Metrics as well as Testing so that you can quickly upload scores for each test.


Lastly, we wanted to make sure that not only could you record each score but also report on the final score. That said, if you Navigate to your profile Reports you will notice that we added a new report for Movement Screens that dynamically produces a Final Score using each Raw Score and Clearing Test.


We hope that this addition has made your daily practice easier now that you can store and report on results of all your Functional Movement needs.

Edit Goals





When we originally added Assessment Goal functionality a few months ago, the one issue was that a trainer wasn't able to set a goal date. This made it difficult to edit goal values or change the value if you made a mistake.

That said, we thought it would be easiest to first add a drop-down picker on the Edit Data button.


And then give you can access to every single goal value so that you can either revise your client's goal or delete it completely from the system.


FYI - This also means you can set a goal for a future date...

Custom Branding





Note: This feature is only available to Gym and Enterprise accounts.

How many times have you said to yourself (or someone else), "I wish I could update TrainerMetrics with my logo and colors?"

Well now you can, and its super easy.

All you need to do is navigate to your account settings and upload your brand's logo and primary color (hex). We'll take care of the rest.

All of the orange branding in-app will be replaced with your color:

branding-overview 2018.05.23.png

Check out your reports. All of them have your logo presented in the top left corner:

Custom Branding is another way we are helping you deliver premium services to your client base and making sure you are getting the credit.

Fitness Testing Print Functionality





As trainers, we still use our clipboards. However, we realized that it was rather time-consuming to upload measurements to TrainerMetrics even though you can customize your own fitness test. Not to mention printing the assessment progress results of a fitness test took way too long.

That said, we decided to call a few of our customers and ask for help. The result was as easy as adding a print button to our Fitness Testing feature:

So what does the printing functionality do for you? As of today, you can export all assessment progress reports that are specific to any given fitness test in a single PDF (not 30+):

Second, print off a Testing Card to capture all measurements in a given fitness test making it faster to batch upload and calculate measurements (your clipboard has a new best friend):
