We get it, there are a lot of fitness assessments personal trainers use on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. And let’s be real, variety is best. So how do we plan to pack in all of the assessments you want into TrainerMetrics?

Thanks to our beta community, we are quickly realizing that it’s almost time to start adding new assessments. Especially the fun ones like various muscular strength, power, endurance, and flexibility tests.

But before we can start revealing some of our hidden fitness assessments as well as some other goodies…we figured it’d be best to update the navigation first so we can organize and fit all of these power tools in a sensible place.

You will notice that when you are using the “Metrics” feature, there are now drop-downs with sub-categories for most tabs. Each sub-category can have multiple calculations for a single test as well as a graph and table. This frees up a lot of room for more features that eventually will go below each table ;)

In case you are interested what assessments are under each sub-category, here’s a quick break down:

  • Basic Data

    • Body Mass Index

Instead of scrolling down four pages and clicking through three assessments to navigate to the only calculation you want take on your client, now you can just hover over the tabs and click directly to your most used calculations. Once again, we implemented these changes because some of our users were explaining it was too time consuming and scrolling on a phone can be really annoying.

So there you have it, you speak and we listen. Thanks again to our awesome community everyone gets a more useful tool from responding to a single email.
