What Is this?

Garmin Connect (https://connect.garmin.com) has one of the best workout creators in the business. Unfortunately you canʼt share them with anyone. So a coach canʼt create a workout for athletes and athletes canʼt share them among themselves.
Iʼm sure Garmin will have a solution for this in the future, but in the meantime this is a simple way for the community to share workout FIT files.
There is no intention to ever make this a commercial venture, no ads, no selling data, no driving traffic somewhere, this is just something I thought would be useful for the community. Enjoy!

How does this work?

Creating a Workout

Use the Garmin Connect web site to create a workout. Details are here: https://connect.garmin.com/en-US/help/how-to/
And your workouts are listed here: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/workouts
You can also create workouts directly in the Garmin Connect Mobile App available on iOS App Store and Google Play

Getting a Workout FIT file to share

Unfortunately you canʼt just save a FIT file with your workout to the desktop or elsewhere. Instead do this:

  1. Send the workout to your device (e.g. Forerunner 935) using the web site or the mobile app.
  2. If you are using the web site, disconnect your device and let it start up. This will cause the device to create the FIT file.
  3. Connect the device to your computer (you canʼt do this on the app alone Iʼm afraid)
  4. Open the Device on your computer and navigate to the WORKOUTS folder. You will see your fit files in here. Simply drag them on to your computer.

Uploading Files to this site to share with the community.

Click on the upload link on this page and complete the form, selecting the FIT file you dragged to your computer. If you want to provide a visual for the workout, create a screenshot of the page from the Garmin Connect web site or app and upload that.

Getting a Workout FIT file onto your device

  1. Use our simple search or click the Advanced option for a more detailed one to find the workout you want
  2. Click the download button to download the FIT file
  3. Connect your device to your computer
  4. Drag the downloaded FIT file to the WORKOUTS or NEWFILES folder on your device (either should work)
  5. Disconnect your device and check that your new workout is there.

NOTE: This is a total free service, and files are uploaded from the community, unchecked by us, and we offer no guarantee that they will work. We accept no liability at all for the quality of the files. Our service will only allow .FIT files to be uploaded.
