I have a Crunch Fitness personal trainer. How do I add this exercise to my diary?

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. You would log exercises completed with a personal trainer the same way that you would log exercises any other way. Please see the following in order to log exercises:
To add an exercise to your diary, click the “Exercise” tab, then click “Add Exercise” under “Cardiovascular”. You can search for exercises the same way you search for food. If you cannot find a particular exercise, try rewording it for better results. Single word searches like “run” or “swim” will provide the most useful results.
If you cannot find the exercise you need, and you know how many calories you have burned, via a heart rate monitor or other tracking device, you can add an exercise manually. If your search does not locate the exercise you need, click “Add an exercise to the database” on the search results screen. Or, for a rough calorie estimate, you can try substituting a similar exercise already in our database.
Please note that because of the many variables involved, we do not calculate the calories burned for strength training exercises you log. The strength training area works like a workout journal for tracking your progress, but will not update your calorie goal for the day. You may log “strength training” under the Cardiovascular section for a very rough estimate of calories burned.
If you are interested in devices that can calculate the calories you are burning, may we suggest looking into our third party integrations? Several of our integrations offer solutions for monitoring your calorie burn over the course of the day, and can update your MyFitnessPal calorie goals based on this data. You can find out more about our integrations in the “Apps” tab.
Hope this helps! We wish you the best of luck in meeting and maintaining all your fitness goals!
