Structured Workout Export

Workout files exported from TrainingPeaks are compatible with most indoor training applications and many Garmin devices. Workouts can be exported in .ERG, .MRC, .FIT, or .ZWO formats.  For FAQs, see this article.

If you have Garmin Connect IQ compatible device you can also wirelessly sync your structured workout of the day to your device using the TrainingPeaks Daily Workout IQ app.  If you have a Wahoo ELEMNT or ELEMNT BOLT your structured workouts can be synced directly to your device.
