How to Measure Workout and Nutrition Compliance with Auto Client Tags

Use Trainerize to measure workout and nutrition compliance and analyze your clients' achievements as well as program effectiveness.

By setting compliance levels for your clients, you'll be able to track weekly adherence to scheduled workouts and nutrition tracked and measure your clients' progress more effectively.

You'll also be able to evaluate whether the goals you've set for your clients are achievable by monitoring if clients are consistently missing or exceeding their compliance thresholds.


How to set compliance thresholds

Navigate to: "Settings" 

Click on: "Auto Client Tags"



From here adjust the compliance thresholds for workouts and nutrition by sliding the 2 little square icons left or right. The left square icon sets the threshold for low compliance, whereas the right square icon will be your threshold for high compliance.

Keep in mind! These settings apply to your entire business and all your clients. 

While compliance levels will be calculated for each client individually, the compliance thresholds you set will be used in those calculations for all of your clients.

We encourage you to start by setting more flexible compliance thresholds then gradually adjust them to become more stringent. starting with more flexible compliance values and then adapting them to drive client compliance higher progressively. 


Workout Compliance

Trainerize calculates a client's weekly workout compliance score based on the percentage of scheduled workouts/cardio the client completed each week.
Keep in mind! Workout compliance is only measured based on the number of scheduled workouts or cardio activities.

Any workouts your clients add to the calendar themselves will not count towards their compliance score. Use the scheduled workouts as your absolute maximum (High Compliance) or minimum (Low Compliance) when you measure their adherence.

A trainer sets a low workout compliance threshold at 50% and a high workout compliance threshold at 75%. 

For Client A the trainer schedules 1 workout each week. 
For client B the trainer schedules 5 workouts each week. 

Client A completes 1 of 1 scheduled workouts. (100%)
Client B completes 2 of 5 scheduled workouts. (40%) 

According to the thresholds set by the trainer, Client A will have demonstrated high workout compliance, while Client B will have demonstrated low workout compliance. 


Nutrition Compliance

Trainerize calculates a client's weekly nutrition compliance score based on the number of days a client achieves their daily nutrition goal. Their food intake data comes from meals logged using the meal workflow/tracker set in the client's profile. If their nutrition goal is set to track using the same meal tracker, the client's nutrition compliance will be calculated each day. 
For nutrition, you can also set the nutrition goal achievement range for clients depending on how strict or loose you want their food intake to be.
Learn more about setting nutrition goals and having clients track them with our In-App Meal Tracker, MyFitnessPal, or Fitbit.


How to make clients more accountable with the automated compliance client tags

Navigate to: "Clients" 

Click on: "Filter by" and select "Tags"

Locate the "Workout" and "Nutrition" tag categories.



At the end of each week (Sunday at midnight local time for the client), a compliance score is calculated for each client and auto-tags are applied accordingly. 

Clients who have demonstrated compliance that is below the low compliance threshold for workouts or nutrition will be automatically tagged with "Low Workout Compliance" and/or "Low Nutrition Compliance".

Clients who have demonstrated compliance that meets or exceeds the high compliance threshold for workouts or nutrition will be automatically tagged with "High Workout Compliance" and/or "High Nutrition Compliance".

Clients whose performance meets or exceeds the low compliance threshold but below the high compliance threshold will not be tagged.

Use these automatic compliance tags to help you analyze the effectiveness and challenge level of your clients' training and nutrition programs. For clients with high compliance may want to schedule more weekly workouts to add an extra challenge, or if most of your clients fall into this category, you may want to adjust the compliance threshold to be more strict.

For clients with low compliance rates, you might want to reach out and offer some extra motivation or discuss workout and nutrition accountability. They might need a push, or fewer scheduled workouts or you might even need to adjust the overall business settings for compliance to be more permissive.
