Structured Workout Export for Garmin Devices

Garmin Devices

The easiest way to load your Structured Workout to your Garmin device is to use the TrainingPeaks Daily Workout IQ app if you have a Connect IQ compatible device (Edge 520, 820, 1000, Forerunner 735 and 935, Fenix 5 series, and others). Note - the Forerunner 910xt is not compatible with TrainingPeaks structured workouts.

If you have an older Garmin that doesn't support the current Connect IQ version you can manually export the .fit file from TrainingPeaks and copy it to your device.

NOTES: You add these files directly to your device, not through Garmin Connect. Swim workouts cannot be exported at this time.

Garmin Edge 500/10/20, 800/10/20, and 1000; Forerunner 920XT and other FR running watches, and Fenix3 (Windows/OSX)

  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 directly in the "Workouts" folder.
  5. Eject device
  6. You should see your workout under the workout under Training > Workouts> Workout Title.  If you don't see it immediately you may need to restart your device.

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.
