  • Select the desired TrainingPeaks Workout Library Folder
  • Highlight the desired workouts from the full list
  • Select "sync workouts" at the bottom of the modal

The import will happen quickly and the import modal will show a success or failed to indicate the status of each workout that imported into TrainingPeaks.

Things to be aware of:

  • Today’s Plan has the option of multiple targets (ex: hr and pace in the same workout). Because TrainingPeaks workouts are limited to one target, Today’s Plan will determine the most important target and move that over. If you prefer a different target in TrainingPeaks, you'll be able to edit the workout in TrainingPeaks after importing. 
  • While uncommon, workout imports can fail if they lack information or are not compatible with TrainingPeaks. In Today’s Plan, you'll be able to view the reason for any failures. We recommend recreating any failed workouts directly in TrainingPeaks.
    • For example: The empty targets error would be caused by an interval block with no target.
  • Once the import is complete, it's recommended to review imported workouts in TrainingPeaks to ensure they are set up the way that you want them.

Add Athletes to Your Coach Account

Your athletes need to create their own accounts to sync their data from Today's Plan. Once they do this they can send you a coaching invitation from their account, or you can send them one from your account with these instructions: How do I add an Athlete to my Coach Account?

Please Note:

  • If an athlete already has a primary coach attached to their account your coaching invite may not be appropriate, it is best if the athlete sends you a shared coach invite to your email address
  • Your coaching invitation will expire in 72 hours. If your athlete has not accepted the request in that time frame, you (or they) need to initiate the coaching request again

Does the athlete or coach pay for a Premium account?

  • Either the coach or athlete can pay for a Premium account. For the coach, the per athlete pricing is listed above. If the athlete is paying monthly, the cost is $19.95 per month, which allows coaches to show athletes the total savings of $10 per month (if the coach pays). Many coaches upgrade their athletes to Premium and simply build the cost of Premium into the monthly fees they charge the athletes.
