The workout type you select determines how the workout is displayed to your clients. There are 3 different workout modes:
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. 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.
An Interval workout allows you to build and deliver one continuous interval workout with multiple exercises to be completed with guidance from the app.
Common use cases for using Interval Workouts are :
- timed sequence of warm-ups or stretches
- interval, HIIT, Tabata or Met-con Heart rate intervals
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 Interval workout also has Voice-Over. The voice-over feature will announce the names of the workouts and the time left on the clock so that your clients no longer have to keep looking at their mobile app to follow the interval workout.
When you're building the workout, the duration of the workout will be displayed so you can plan for the length of the workout.
