I guess it depends on what you want out of the site. I did a free month of trainerize but chose not to use it. I use PTonthenet.com. I use the site to write programs for my clients, and did not find enough exercises (especially “functional” ones on trainerize. PTonthenet is a bit clunky to use, but I like the variety of exercises and the freedom to add your own.

I am looking into Trainerize, but it doesn’t seem to add much more value than a personal website.
You can set up a website, use the ideafit workout builder, and connect with your clients through email or an autoresponder.
Also, if you use mind body, you can set up appointment times and point of sale.
All that being said, it seems like the cost is redundant, especially for Idea members.
I┬┤ve been using XPS Network (http://www.sidelinesports.com/personal-trainers) for the last few years and I couldn┬┤t be more satisfied. The clients they have are national teams, NBA, and whatnot.
http://www.FitSW.com┬áreally has helped improve my personal training sessions. The nutrition plan / diet creator is very helpful and it works on both Android and iPhone. My client’s also love being able to track their weights and exercises and it makes things a lot easier than using the yellow cards my gym used to use. It is a quick signup, completely free (I tried a few on the list but then they limit features and charge a lot to use the pro version). FitSW.com provides online tools like workout tracking & organizing, goal/body measurement progress tracking (in very nice easy to read graphs), diet plan creation, allows you to provide demo videos for your clients and includes a scheduling system. Its made my job much easier and you can’t beat the fact that it is Free.
