How to design an exercise program

Step 2: Design the exercise program

Physitrack's patent-pending program designer (shown below) lets you quickly customize your client's exercise program.

  • To remove an exercise from the program, click the red X.
  • To add more exercises to the program, click the "+ Add exercise" button
  • To change the amount of sets, reps and other parameters for an exercise, click the exercise. 
    • A modal ("popup", see below) will show up where you can:
      • Change the parameters (sets, reps, etc)
      • Add additional instructions for your client
      • Duplicate the exercise (this is useful for assigning the same exercise at differing intensity)
      • Remove this exercise

To change multiple parameters for multiple exercises at one time, click the Change Parameters button

  • A modal slides up below the chosen exercises.
    • Click the exercises you would like to change parameters for - the frame will highlight the ones you have chosen
    • Change the parameters
    • Click on "Done" for all changes to be captured for all exercises at the same time.

Different exercises on different days?

Physitrack offers 2 types of exercise programs:

Daily programs, where the same exercise is repeated day in day out, 7 days a week.

Weekly programs, where you can specify different exercises for different days, including days without any exercises.  A week lasts 7 days and starts on the day that the program started, for example Thursday.

To switch between a daily and a weekly program, simply click the "Change to weekly program" (or "Change to daily program") link at the bottom of the program designer. 

Note: once a weekly program has been assigned to a client, it can no longer be changed back to a daily program.

Step 3: assign the program to your client

When you're designed your program (you can always go in and edit it later), you need to assign it to your client.

  1. Click the "Assign" button (see below)
  2. Choose an existing client, or click "Add new client" to add a new client.
    ( Physitrack integrates with patient management systems so you can automatically import your clients.)
  3. After you've (added and) selected your client, you can choose the settings for this exercise program.
  4. When you are done, click "Assign program" to generate an access code for this program.
    1. Clients access their exercise program through PhysiApp, our free app for clients. Your client can also print the program from within PhysiApp.
    2. If your client has an email address, the access code will have been emailed to them, otherwise, you will need to communicate the access code to your client via email, paper or verbally during your consultation.

Ending a program

A program ends when:

  • The end date that you set has passed, or
  • You end the program yourself. To end a client's program:
    • go to the Clients page
    • click on the client in question
    • click on the "View program" button
    • click on the "Settings" button
    • scroll down and click the "End program" button (see below)
