What are Master Workouts?
You may have "GO TO" workouts that you utilize frequently for various client fitness levels and goals. For these types of workouts, Trainerize allows you to tag workouts, which you can copy to a client's training plan. Once copied, you can make adjustments under the client's account, without affecting your main template. The advantage of this is to get new client's quickly up and running or to update a client's library once they reach a certain stage of your routine.
You can create three types of workouts; Regular, Circuit and Interval. We will go over each of them below.
Regular workouts allow you to build a workout that has a series of exercises which need to be completed. When a client does an exercise, he/she will need to complete a set. For example you may want a client to perform a bench press, a lat pull down and bicep curls in a workout, and with each exercise, you may want them to perform 3 sets. You can build such a workout, as a regular workout. The workout will show each set of exercises, for the client to complete.
Once you're building the workout, add in exercises, and make sure to enter in the number of sets you want for each exercise. The default is 3 sets. You can also superset exercises together. Finally once you enter in your rep and weight targets, hit 'save'.
A Circuit workout allows you to build a workout that has "rounds" of grouped exercises. For example you may want a client to perform a bench press, a lat pull down and then ride the bike for 3 min. Then you want your client to repeat this series 3 times consecutively. You can build such a workout, as a circuit workout. The workout will show each round separately when pulled up for tracking on the web, or Smartphone.
Once you're building the workout, add in exercises, and make sure to choose how many rounds you want in this circuit. The default is 3 rounds. You can change the number of rounds by clicking into the box where it shows 3 rounds and adjusting to the desired number.
An Interval workout allows you to build and deliver one continuous interval workout with multiple exercises to be completed in a structured and timed fashion. Interval workouts can be built with any Trainerize exercise videos or custom exercise videos. Both clients and trainers have the ability to track the total reps for each exercise in the interval workout once the workout has been completed.
The advanced interval timer features a countdown timer for each individual exercise, and a timer that counts down the rest of the total time in the workout. The video for the next exercise becomes available as you go through the workout. If a client clicks to watch the video, the Interval Timer will pause until they have finished watching the video, then it will automatically resume.
The Interval workout also has Voice-Over. The voice-over feature will announce the names of the workouts and the time left on the cloc so that your clients no longer have to keep looking at their mobile app to follow the interval workout.
Once you're building the workout, add in exercises, and make sure to choose the duration for that exercise along with reps/weights if applicable.
