Ideas submitted by Training Tilt coaches and team members
Ability to take a training plan and "publish" it so that people can see it on your site without needing an account or being logged in. Alternatively it could be password protected. This is great for coaching groups, clubs or just for coaches to use the plans as marketing tools to get more interest in their paid services. The plan would be read only and would only show prescribed data without any ability to connect actual training data.
Idea is to keep the strength workouts in a structured form as well instead of just adding things in terms of description. Whenever strength workout is selected as a type, there should be change appearing on screen while adding workout like rows and columns. Rows will be for each exercise details Columns can be -Exercise name (where there should be the ability to select particular exercise added centrally either in library or in videos whatever it can be) -Sets -Rep count (there should be the ability to set this reps based on either counter as 1-20 or something and also the ability to set them based on the duration like 10 secs of particular exercise or 30 secs of particular exercise) -Rest ratio between each set and between variation of exercises Time under tension This could be used for any type of workouts like strength, mobility, yoga, flexibility, etc.
A Chart to show training stress. The chart would compare fatigue, fitness and form to give coaches and athletes an idea of how their training load is tracking. These types of charts are a useful tool, however should only ever be used as part of determining appropriate work and rest for an athlete
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.
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.
Imagine a place within Training Tilt where you can text, send audio, or video messages (even record you screen) to your athletes. You can even drag and drop content from your library right into the chat including planned and completed workouts and training data. We think this would be a great feature and asset to the platform, a truly integrated messaging system with your athletes their data and your content
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
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.
Some athletes have power where some use HR or Pace/Speed. It would be great to be able to have multiple versions of a structured workout so an athlete could choose which one suits them based on the equipment they have. Currently to make this work coaches are creating multiple versions of the workout itself but that adds complications to how to prescribe the workouts in training plans and athlete calendars. Coaches need to know who has access to what etc or drag two versions of the same workout onto the calendar which is not ideal.
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
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. This would make it possible to color code the default workout types but also create your own custom workout types and color code those. For example you may wish to create custom workout types for different intensity runs like "Easy Run", "Tempo Run" etc all with a different color code.
Often coaches paste in links to resources that exist on web pages like youtube videos etc. These currently just show as plain text but would be a better experience for clients if they were automatically turned into clickable URL's
These areas are really important to the women athletes I train and it would be cool to be able to track, a. then I can give them harder or easier workouts depending on where they are more beneficial in their cycle. Would be happy to collab you on this as I am taking a Course with Stacy Sims in November on the topic. Just a thought Cam. Maree L
Often coaches develop and change their principles around training at which point they like to update their workout library. When they currently update their library titles, description and volumes are not pushed out automatically to any training plans or athlete calendars that also feature the workouts. This feature involves having an option to force an update to all workouts in existing template training plans or workouts on client calendars (in the future) to also reflect those changes. This will be an optional change. e.g when saving a workout in the library coach will be prompted to force the change on all training plans and athlete workouts at the same time
