We want to add the ability to import structured workouts that are exported as files from other platforms. Handy for coaches who use more than one coaching system or a migrating from another platform. The initial release will be probably ZWO (Zwift) and FIT (Garmin) file formats. Instead of having to build a structured workout manually you will be able to import a file and the workout will be generated automatically.
Related to my other post on S&C this would be like session library for bike, run etc, but would enable multiple exercises to be inputted to a session to build the S&C session.
Although a metric like TSS is not necessarily an accurate metric in isolation. In terms of being able to determine an athlete's current status when combined with a coaches experience and personal knowledge about individual athletes can be very useful. We do get requests for this type of feature on a regular basis so have always wanted to add it to the system. This is still something we'd like to implement but is not currently a priority ahead of our other planned features. If you'd like to see this added to the platform please vote for it! Thanks! Cam
Video is a great way to quickly and clearly communicate detailed information to clients and vice versa. We have the opportunity to integrate a video and screen recording platform into our messaging tools in Training Tilt. We think this would be a great feature and asset to the platform. Coaches could record their screen and themselves via a web cam at the same time. A great use case for this would be a coach working through a clients completed workout while screen recording the data charts and have a small video of themselves in the corner of the video at the same time.
This would be helpful to reduce the clutter of having all training plans in one big alpha-ordered list. The coach could then place plans in created folders tailored to their coaching, ie. 5K Plan folder, 10K Plan folder, Marathon Plan folder. It will allow for quicker access and just better organization.
longer list of athletes to enable faster switching between them under client dashboard have a longer list of visible athletes to enable faster switching
It would be great for coaches to be able to configure their own color scheme for the different workout types they use.
Currently there a few steps/clicks for coaches and athletes to be able to comment on completed workouts. This should be easier to access and faster to achieve to promote better communication between coaches and athletes
PE is a common and useful measure for coaches to both prescribe workouts and for athletes to feed back on completed workouts. We plan to add these as a prescription field but also a feed back field so both planned PE and actual PE can be measured
When showing intervals or hovering over intervals the % of threshold value is shown as a percentage. If an athlete has their training zones and thresholds set this should also show the absolute value of pace, power speed etc.
The ability to select and delete multiple training sessions in a plan as opposed to having to delete them one by one. It would also be awesome to delete an entire row of workouts ie. all of the sessions on a Wednesday.
When building a structured workout coaches often need to repeat themselves by adding intervals that are common across many different workouts even if the overall workout is slightly different. It would save a lot of time for coaches to be able to save individual blocks of intervals that they can then drag and drop onto the workout builder.
Most of us include some form of gym wok in programmes but, none of the current platforms facilitate a means of writing programmes in a neat way. Spreadsheets are what it nearly always boils down to. We down usually need something too complicated Exercise, sets, reps, resistance, recovery URL for video of exercise and text box for instructions. Then a means to quickly add what the athlete has done. Appreciate this is not a simple as it sounds but it would be awesome and fill a hole.
Currently client notes can only be used on the web app. This is a popular feature with our coaches and needs to be available in the mobile apps so it's more easily accessible. This will likely improve the adoption of this feature for clients and result in better communication between clients and coaches.
Many of our coaches need to book one on one appointments with their clients. Some handle this manually going back and forth with email, others use tools like Calendly so it's mostly automated in terms of matching available slots and can be integrated with platforms like Zoom. This is a feature that could get very complicated with linking to calendars to automatically determine availability. Our version would be very simple at least to start with. The ability for the coach to create availability slots and for someone to book them which would then block off that time, then send an meeting request to both parties via email. Later on we might implement automatic availability by reading the coaches Google calendar and also Integrating with Zoom to automatically generate meeting links.
