At PT Distinction, our goal is to provide you with the best personal trainer software on the market. That's why we're continually upgrading the platform to bring you new and exciting features.
From new features to improved performance, we’ve been listening to your feedback and incorporating your suggestions into our personal trainer software. This blog post looks at some of the updates over the past year.
1. Apple Health FeedsThe Apple Health Feed integration allows personal trainers to monitor the exercise and health data of their clients in real-time. With this integration, you can access information on clients' steps, sleep patterns, workouts, heart rate, intensity, and burned calories. The data collected is presented in an easy-to-understand format with clear breakdowns of each item, including daily, weekly, and monthly averages.
2. Set-up AssistantThe Set-Up Assistant is a game-changer in personal training software. It streamlines setting up tasks for your clients, making it easier and faster for you to get started.
Whether you're new to PT Distinction or a seasoned user, the Set-Up Assistant will help you get the most out of our platform. With its user-friendly interface, the Set-Up Assistant guides you through each process step, ensuring that you set up your tasks correctly and efficiently.
The tool will walk you through setting up each task and provide customized templates to get you started. This makes it easy to create tasks tailored to your client's needs and goals, ensuring they receive the best possible service.
In addition, the Set-Up Assistant provides helpful tips and recommendations along the way, ensuring that you make the most of each feature. So whether you're setting up a new client profile, creating a workout plan, or tracking nutrition, the Set-Up Assistant is there to help you with every step.
3. Trainer ModeWith Trainer mode, you can now view your app as any of your clients, allowing you to understand their needs and respond to their requests quickly. Whether on the go or at your desk, you'll have access to all your messages and client information at your fingertips. The feature also lets you jump directly into your admin area, giving you complete control over your clients and their information.
We know that being responsive to your clients is crucial in building a successful personal training business. That's why we've made it easy for you to manage your clients on the go. With the PT Distinction software, you can easily access your client information, add a coaching item, and view results exactly as you would on a desktop.
4. Apple Watch AppThe Apple Watch app opens up a whole new world of opportunities for personal trainers and their clients.
The new Apple Watch app allows your clients to track their workouts and keep on top of their daily schedules. They can tick off items as they complete them, ensuring they stay on track and reach their fitness goals. The app provides an easy and convenient way for your clients to keep on top of their progress, even when they're on the go.
The Apple Watch integration is a significant step forward in personal training software. It provides personal trainers with the tools they need to monitor their clients' progress and provide customized support while empowering them to take control of their health and fitness journeys.
5. System GroupsSystem Groups are automated groups for all your clients, whether active or inactive. The groups automatically update when you change the status of any client, making it easier for you to manage your client base and stay on top of your coaching tasks.
With System Groups, you can easily message all of your clients at once. So whether you want to send a newsletter, let your clients know about a new service, or provide an exciting update, System Groups make it simple to reach all of your clients in one place.
In addition, System Groups allow you to add content for all your clients and never repeat tasks. For example, you might want all of your clients to do regular assessments, take progress photos, or keep a food diary. With System Groups, you can set it up once, and it will be automatically assigned to every client, saving you a significant amount of time.
Another exciting benefit of System Groups is the ability to automate your welcome email, onboarding documents, PARQ, and consent forms for all new clients. This ensures that every client receives the same high-quality onboarding experience and frees up your time to focus on more critical tasks.
6. Team Area UpgradeThis upgrade includes a new way to access your team account and members. By clicking on any of your team members, you can quickly access their account and see exactly what it looks like, including all of their clients details.
The update also includes a team dashboard where you manage your team with ease, add and remove members, and view any resources that are shared between the team.
Now managing a team of trainers inside PT Distinction is much easier.
7. Account ManagementThis update was designed with a clean and modern look that makes it easier to manage your account and settings. The updated interface is intuitive and straightforward, allowing you to save time and focus on training your clients.
8. Program Builder V52022 saw the 5th major upgrade to our program builder, and the best one yet.
With our program builder, you can easily create and design world-class training programs that cater to your client's unique needs. The builder is equipped with a variety of pre-designed templates, workout routines, and exercises that you can use to build programs from scratch or modify to suit your client's specific requirements.
With its intuitive and user-friendly interface, our program builder is designed to make building programs easy, fast, and efficient. You can quickly create, edit, and manage your client's programs, freeing up more time to focus on what matters most - your clients and their results.
PT Distinction also allows you to rapidly track and monitor your clients' progress so you can make the necessary adjustments to their training programs along the way. For example, you can see what exercises they’ve completed, the results they achieved and even their exercise technique. This information is critical in helping you fine-tune their programs and keep them on track toward their fitness goals.
9. Brand RefreshThe new brand features a modern, clean, and intuitive interface that makes navigating and finding the information you need easier.
