There are a lot of fitness platforms out there that do a whole lot of things. Of course we're biased, but here's why we believe that WeStrive is the best app for personal trainers to manage and grow your business.
When it comes to personal training platforms, you want software that can not only help you manage your clients but can also help you grow your business.
It’s one thing to track a client’s progress and it’s another thing to be able to handle your invoicing, get a free website, and be added to a marketplace.
Since I created WeStrive, you might think I’m a little biased, but I’m going to list 10 key reasons why WeStrive is the best app for personal trainers. From there, you can be the judge.
10 Reasons why WeStrive is the best app for personal trainers
- Simple Navigation
- #1 fitness Program builder
- 5-Star app for your clients
- Program and exercise templates
- Client calendars, auto-scheduling, & reminders
- Best free landing page for trainers
- Nutrition & Macro Tracking
- Personal Trainer Marketplace
- Customer service
- Billing with Stripe
#1 - Simple Navigation
We could have started this list by putting down one of our key features, but I think the actual usability of an app/website is so much more important. You can have all the top features in the world, but if you can’t navigate it… then what’s the point?
We’ve spent years designing WeStrive to make sure it’s incredibly simple, easy-to-use, and will save time for both you and your clients. We’ve done this through drop-down & collapsible menus, quick-bar navigation, and so much more.
#2 - The #1 Fitness Program Builder
Our program builder has hundreds of features inside of it. You’ll start off by enjoying our easy calendar overview of your plan. This will allow you to quickly duplicate/drag days+weeks and move them to wherever you like from the calendar.
Inside the builder, you’re able to easily create supersets, circuits, warm-ups, etc... As a personal trainer, you can even upload & even categorize your exercises.
Don’t have any exercises? That’s fine! You can utilize our database of over 2000 pictures & videos that are all shot by certified personal trainers.
Our program builder also offers some pretty fancy template-builders which we’ll cover in #4.
#3 Enjoy a 5-Star app for your clients
Similar to point one and talking about easy navigation for your clients - the last thing you want is to finally land a client… only to disappoint them with the app crashing on them.
With WeStrive, we are constantly innovating/updating our mobile app experience for both you and your clientele.
From the app, new clients can follow fitness plans, track body weight, upload progress photos, track nutrition, and so much more to simplify client management!
#4 Program and exercise templates
At WeStrive, we’re all about speed and convenience. This is why we’ve added templates for programs, days, and workouts.
We originally offered just program templates - the ability to save a full program so you can re-use it on future clients… but we wanted to make things even faster.
Now, when you finish a specific day - if you like the day, you can just save it as “My favorite Day3” and then plug that day into any future plan.
The same goes for specific workouts like a circuit. If you finish a circuit and add 50 words to the notes section… that would be super annoying to have to re-type. Now, you can save it as a “full-body circuit” and then instantly plug it into any future program.
#5 Client calendars, auto-scheduling, and reminders
After assigning a program, you have full-reign to control the entire experience to your liking all from one place. If your client can’t make a workout for Tuesday, simply drag it to Wednesday. Did they enjoy the Monday workout you assigned them and now they want to do it again? You can easily just duplicate it and put it on whatever day you like.
Using this tool, you can also track and manage all of their results. Plus, you can auto-schedule programs in the future. That’s right, you could technically schedule 5 programs to each start at the beginning of the next month. It’s as easy as that!
And you can also schedule reminders or a client’s to-do list in advance. If you want your clients to add their body weight + take a progress photo every Monday morning, then you can easily schedule that using our app!
#6 Best free website for trainers
Look at the screenshot above? I don’t know if we even need words to describe how amazing your personalized website is as a personal trainer. WeStrive provides one place where you can host your clients’ testimonials (up to 10, including before/after photos & videos), custom pricing plans (up to 10), contact information, client onboarding questionnaires, and so much more.
We know how much of a pain it is to build your own personal training website - so we wanted to just give you one! If you’re a new trainer, you can use WeStrive for up to 1 client 100% for free. Sign-up here to get your landing page.
#7 Nutrition & Macro Tracking
This point has several sub-points to it (again, we could have made like a 100-point list). WeStrive allows you to assign nutrition plans to clients and also assign/track their daily food intake and macros.
From your client’s profile, you can easily assign macro goals and automate them in a schedule. Your client will log in to the WeStrive App and sync up their WeStrive App with the Lose it! App. It takes about 15 seconds and once it’s done, everything they eat will be displayed on your trainer dashboard.
You can track all of their macros + the exact foods they eat each day. From the calendar view, these results are easily compared to the goals that you set.
#8 Personal Trainer Marketplace
The trainer marketplace allows you to highlight yourself as a trainer utilizing your free website (point #6). Exercisers are already discovering WeStrive and looking for a personal trainer to work with.
They head to the marketplace, filter through personal trainers based on the type of training, pricing, etc., and then can apply through your landing page.
#9 Customer service & Support
Whether it’s through our chatbots, In-depth FAQ pages, weekly blogs, fitness growth podcasts, or our video walkthroughs… we’re always here to help.
In fact, email us here at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Set up a call with someone on our team if you want to have a walkthrough of the software!
#10 Billing with Stripe
WeStrive handles one-time or automated monthly billing via Stripe in over 30 countries.
Handling your payments through Stripe can have a lot of benefits. A lot of personal trainers I know will send random Venmo or PayPal requests to their clients throughout the month and lose track of who’s where in the billing cycle. With WeStrive & Stripe, you always have a grip on who’s paid, pending, or missed a payment.
We also have an entire Sales page. From here, you can track your sales journey, compare months, compare one-time vs. monthly payments, and more!

And that’s that! I only wanted to write about 10 pieces of WeStrive but there were so many more reasons why our app can help truly transform your business. Like the fact that we have an entire progression session for PR’s, measurements, body weight, and more. We also offer group messaging so you can talk to your clients all in one place. Oh, and your first client is free forever so you could get a free personalized website and start your business for free.
At the end of the day, we’ve added 100’s of features to WeStrive and we’re going to continue to add more. Our number one goal is to make the app as easy to use as possible for you and your clients.
