We’ve been working hard behind the scenes, and we are happy to announce that later this Summer we are preparing to release Trainerize 6, a brand new mobile app rebuilt from the ground up, and redesigned to give your clients a better experience and improved app stability!

Once this new version of Trainerize is out into the world, it will allow us to layer on new functionality like introducing client goals and habits, adding the much requested Apple/HealthKit integration, and bringing multi-metric challenges to the app.

We can’t wait to get this app in your (and your clients’) hands, but first we need your feedback on our new iOS and Android Beta apps.

What to know about testing the new Trainerize Beta apps:

  • The Beta app will replace your existing Trainerize app. We've made a lot of improvements to the Beta app so you can expect this to function smoother than the current app.
  • Your app icon will be replaced by the Trainerize icon in this Beta phase.
  • The client dashboard is in the process of being redesigned, but clients can still access all the tabs through a simple temporary dashboard. When the new client dashboard is ready, we'll release it as an update to the Beta app.
  • You can always revert back to the current public app by deleting the BETA app and downloading the main Trainerize app from the App Store.

First things first: join the Facebook Trainerize Beta Group! Use the Facebook group to let us know if you are having any issues installing the Beta app or to share feedback about the product.

Second, install the Trainerize Beta App, following the installation process for your device type as outlined below.
