TrainingPeaks is the most popular and sophisticated training portal, allowing athletes to create and plan their own training routines and helping coaches guide their athletes through their individual training plans.
We are thrilled to establish an integrated training environment between ROUVY and TrainingPeaks. You can now see your individual training plan in the ROUVY Workouts section, click and start cycling!
This article explains how to turn on ROUVY and TrainingPeaks synchronization, what type to choose, where to find your TrainingPeaks workouts in the ROUVY App and what to remember while creating and synchronizing a new one, and a few words on the importance of the FTP.
If you experience any issues with TrainingPeaks,
please update your ROUVY App to version 3.1.5 or higher, the bugs are fixed in the higher version.
Switch On Synchronization
To start using TrainingPeaks and ROUVY, all you need to do is to turn on synchronization:
- Go to ROUVY.com and LOG IN your ROUVY ACCOUNT;
- Click on your ICON in the top right corner;
- In the drop-down menu, choose CONNECTED APPS;
- In the list of available apps, select TrainingPeaks, and click CONNECT;
- LOG IN to your TrainingPeaks Profile to ALLOW ACCESS for ROUVY.
First, disconnect your other one, then try connecting to the correct one.
In your account on ROUVY.com, please choose the type of synchronization you prefer:
- Automatic synchronization sends the activity automatically after it ends.
No need to do anything - the process is automatic;
- Manual synchronization lets you choose which activity you want to synchronize, as you have to do it yourself every time.
To manually synchronize the activity, go to your training diary on my.ROUVY.com, and choose the activity you want to synchronize:
Then scroll down and send it from the table SHARE TRAINING on the right side by clicking CONNECT:
After you choose your type of synchronization, all data about your ROUVY activities is shared with TrainingPeaks.
TrainingPeaks process the uploaded activities, and, based on the incoming values from ROUVY, changes the status of the workout.
The new workout status is immediately displayed in the TrainingPeaks calendar. The green color means that the workout is completed.
Where can I find my TrainingPeaks Workouts?
You can find your TrainingPeaks Workout in the ROUVY App in the WORKOUTS section.
You need to find TRAININGPEAKS in the list as shown below:
After you've clicked on TrainingPeaks - your Workout of the Day will be the first one in the list:
When you click on Workout of the Day, ROUVY will ask you to synchronize the FTP value.
It happens because the FTP value in the TrainingPeaks app differs from that in ROUVY.
We recommend confirming and synchronizing. Otherwise, the workout profile will be inconsistent with the coach's expectations.
Create Your Pre-defined Workouts
You (or your coach) can easily create a pre-defined workout in TrainingPeaks.
Your workouts are automatically and instantly synced with the ROUVY App for you to be just a few seconds from the ride.
How to create a TrainingPeaks workout for ROUVY?
You can see your TrainingPeaks workout in the ROUVY App, if you or your Coach add a workout to your Training diary.
Please note: you must create/add the workout via the website, not in the App.
Simply click on a DAY in the Calendar and click the PLUS button below.
Please note: ROUVY displays and can synchronize only TrainingPeaks workout that contains specification BIKE WORKOUTS.
Click the BUILD WORKOUTS button.
The only WORKOUT that can be displayed on ROUVY must be classified by the DURATION and % FTP.
Your Workout's FTP
The main benefit of TrainingPeaks workouts in the ROUVY Application is the automatic control of the trainer’s resistance by the ROUVY Application.
The workout profile is based on workout segments. Each segment is defined by duration and % FTP. More on FTP is in this article.
Once the FTP values in TrainingPeaks and ROUVY are not the same, the final workout generated for each ride in ROUVY will set a different higher/lower resistance to a trainer. That is why you need to synchronize FTP values between ROUVY and TrainingPeaks when choosing your workout.
Each day the TrainingPeaks workouts are displayed in your ROUVY account. The only workouts of the day are to be accessible in the ROUVY App.
