Wonderful software and I highly recommend it to health and fitness professionals who want to grow and scale an online business or in person.

Pros

PT distinction makes life incredibly easy when managing a book of online clients from check ins to content delivery.

Cons

Sometimes the support is rather difficult to work with and takes days upon days to figure problems out.

Response from PT Distinction

Thank you for the great review Chandler. We're pleased you love to software.

Sorry our support has been slow for you, we generally answer all helpdask questions within a couple of hours and aim to have solutions at the first response. Occasionally our team does need to investigate further which can take a little more time, when this happens we still aim to have the solution with you in one business day.

Thank you, and once again we're pleased you love the software!

I was struggling to find an app that I could do online coaching that offers me quality of service, support, function and that was not so expansive, until I find PT Distinction. I got in love with this app and his features and function since the first day I saw it. My clientes love the habit tracking, and how easy is for them to manage their app even that they dont speak english. The help support from them is also amazing, they always try to solve your problem and they answer quicly to your report. I highly recommend PTD.

Pros

Its easy to settle anything, easy to use, my clients absolutely love the features.

Cons

it always update and sometimes its stop to function for some time, but nothing really big

I am continuing the things I don't like here because I have been cut off above ....

6.) The client can automatically see once a message has been read- sometimes we have to dig deeper to get our clients the best possible response and this means we cannot respond right away. This makes for terrible customer service optics because it looks like we have "read" the message without responding.

7.) The app freezes and clients lose their workout tracking when their phone locks - PTD blames user error but this never happened with trainerize.

Lastly - I hope that they start taking client feedback into consideration and take responsibility to look into the bugs mentioned above vs continuing to blame user error.

Unfortunately I feel stuck with PTD because of the google sheets integration - but i MUCH prefer the look, ease of use and UI of Trainerize.

Pros

PTD has a lot of capabilities and integrations.

Cons

I wish that I had more good things to say about PTD. We made the switch from Trainerize to create an overall more integrated experience for our clients -- I was drawn to PTD only for the google sheets integration which is big for our client delivery - however PTD has many issues

1.) The UI looks very old and looks as though it hasn't been updated in years. It's slow - to me it looks like something that has been built using cheaper means - i am trying to say this in the nicest possible way - but I worked in silicon valley for years.

2.) Clients often do not get notifications and the PTD team has no better response other than blaming the phone of the user. If this were the case - my clients would have had the same issue with Trainerize and they didnt. I have spoken to other PTD users as well and everyone has the same issue. The lack of responsibility that they seem to take in tackling this very clear BUG does not sit well with me.

3.) The search feature in the mobile app does not work period.

4.) There software updates take FOREVER. Literally they always say "this will be taken care of in the next update" -- which seems to take months if ever.

5.) there is no way to make messages unread - this to me is such a SIMPLE request yet they fight it tooth and nail. Sometimes our team has to come back to a client question and we have no way of remembering what we need to follow up with (they claim this will be taken care of in the "next update" which is still yet to happen.

PTD Review

Reviewed on 2021/10/02

Pros

It was an easy transition into the PTD software. It's simple to input new users and keep track of all of my clients without feeling bogged down.

Cons

The only issue I have experience is with the client's app force closing or freezing on occasion. All data has been saved, but its just a pain to have toreboot their phones to fix the issue

Alternatives Considered

Trainerize

Reasons for Choosing PT Distinction

My PT HUB was havign some serious client side issues. Work being unsaved when it should have been. The app crashing repeatedly.

Reasons for Switching to PT Distinction

I only used to PTD free trial and was able to tie in all of my business within the trial perioud. So I saw no need to try out trainerize since I already liked PTD.
