Structured Workout Export for Garmin Devices

Garmin Devices

.FIT workout files exported from TrainingPeaks are compatible with many Garmin devices. Currently these files need to be manually copied to your device.

NOTE: You add these files directly to your device, not through Garmin Connect.

  1. Plug in device via USB
  2. Open Garmin device folder
  3. Open NewFiles
  4. Copy your TrainingPeaks .FIT workouts file(s) into the NewFiles folder. Note: some devices may require you to place the file in the Workouts folder.
  5. Eject device
  6. You should see your workout under the workout under Training > Workouts> Workout Title

Note: If the workout does not load you may need to free memory by removing old workouts. In some cases you can only load one workout file at a time.  Hitting the Lap button will advance the workout to the next step.
