Create + Edit Training Sessions

Creating and Editing workouts can be quick and easy and there is definitely a technique to getting this done effectively and efficiently.

Check out this short video on how to program.

If you have questions on how to program specific types of workouts, check out this article for a spot.

First, Login to your coach account. 

Next, decide where you'd like to create your training session. You can create a session directly on the team's calendar or within a training program (which will then be added to the team's calendar once it's complete).

In this case, we will click on a specific team to create a training session on your team's calendar.


To create a new training session, simply hover over the date you would like to add a session to and select + ADD.


This will bring you to the builder page. Select Add New Session to create a new session.


Re-name your session and add any Session Notes to direct your athletes.


Select Add Block, to create the first block of your new session.



From here, use the search bar 'Select Exercise of Circuit' to find an exercise or circuit from your library. If you're unable to find the appropriate workout or circuit, you can always create a New Exercise or New Circuit.


Selecting a Circuit from the library will automatically populate that block with the Circuit Details, videos, Results, and Leaderboard. If needed, you can edit the Circuit Details, Results, add or remove videos, and also use the toggle to remove the leaderboard.


If you select an Exercise from the library you will then be prompted to Select Prescription or create a Custom (Table).


Select the Table or Notes icon to expand the exercise details.


From here, you can add Exercise Notes, add or remove videos, edit the prescriptions, and turn on the leaderboard.


The three dot menu on the upper right will allow you to Test or Delete the block.


The drop down menu on the upper left will allow you to change the Block Category.


To create a Superset, hover between blocks and select the link icon.


You can rearrange exercises and supersets by selecting the arrows next to the blocks.


New Circuit


Select New Circuit. From here, you can enter your Circuit Details, prescribe the Results, add any relevant videos, and also save this circuit to your library by selecting Save Circuit to Library.



To delete a block, select the trashcan icon next to the block.


New Exercise



From a new block, Select Create Exercise to create and save an exercise to your Library. The Create Exercise drawer on the right will prompt you to title your exercise and set Default Parameters. You can also choose to include your own video by including a Youtube or Vimeo url.


Also in this drawer, you can Reference Max for when loads are prescribed in weight %. If you're planning to track your athlete's progress, use Track As to indicate which TrainHeroic exercise you would like to link this exercise to for the purpose of tracking numbers.


Finally, include Points of Performance with tips to best perform this exercise, and use Tags to apply filters and help narrow your search when in the library.


When building a session, you can hover over dates on the Calendar to view past sessions, for reference.


Your blocks and sessions will automatically save to your calendar as you work. To make the sessions public, select Publish Session at the top right menu.


In this menu, you can Publish your workout, view a Preview of the workout, Save Session to Library to use for another day/team, or Delete you session by selecting the trashcan icon.
