Creating training programs help trainers and fitness enthusiasts alike to organize their training schedule to fit in with their daily routine. Being organized is half the battle when embarking on a new fitness journey, so having a good structure in place is important to help you stick to your plan and achieve your goals faster. You can create your own custom training programs in the Workout Trainer app, and now you can also create programs on the web. Just head over to the Skimble website to start creating your first program from the comfort of your computer.
Select the Programs tab from the top header menu, then tap ‘Add New’ to get started. Here you can create custom training programs on our website the same way you would in the Workout Trainer app.
Start by selecting the language you want to use to create your program. We currently support localized versions of the app in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Come up with a creative name for your program, then write a description to summarize its purpose and select the difficulty of the program based on the average intensity of the workouts you’re using. Skip the Publishing and Privacy steps until you’re ready to go-live with your program.
Tap any day on the calendar to add a workout. You can search by name, category, popular workouts, or select one of your own created workouts. Choose the workout you want to include and it will be added to the calendar on the day you selected.
You can then tap on any workout scheduled on the calendar to replace, duplicate, or remove it. You can also add additional weeks to your program by tapping the gray button below the calendar.
When you’ve finished creating your custom training program, head back up to the top of the page to publish it. Select Public or Private from the drop-down menu before you save the program. We recommend creating private programs to send to your 1:1 training clients for their use only. This is a great marketing tool that can help you grow your online coaching business! You can also create public programs as teaser content to showcase on your profile and share with friends.
You can share your public programs on social media, or send private ones to clients directly on the web. Tap the blue Skimble Share button, select one of your clients, and hit send! Creating Programs is a PRO+ feature. Make sure you’ve completed at least one workout in the app first to be able to access program creation on our website. Verified Trainers with a PRO+ membership can create programs on the web right away, just submit your personal trainer certifications to get verified and start using our Trainer Tools to grow your business.
Try it out today! Create your first custom training program on the Skimble website and send it to your clients and friends in the Workout Trainer app on Android and iOS for the best multimedia experience!
