Strange place for this question!

I’m really not getting value for my subscription over the summer months so am considering dropping it until winter strikes …

However, I’d still like to use the turbo for the occasional rainy day workout … is there an alternate free way to create workouts to use on the Kickr that anyone recommends?

Training peaks to create a workout a add sync the workout to a head unit, I use an ELMNT Bolt, and use that to control your smart trainer.

I’m not really familiar with Training Peaks as I use Intervals.ICU for my training plan and statistics.

Do you need to pay for the subscription to use this functionality?

Any other recommendations anyone?

I use for getting workouts on my Bolt.

  • In select your workout, choose Download → MRC.
  • Plug your Bolt into your PC, then browse to the plans folder.
  • Copy the downloaded .MRC file into that folder.
  • On your Bolt go to Settings, Planned Workouts, then sync.

The drag and drop workout builder in TrainingPeaks is free to use. It’s been recommended by loads of users on here as a way to take SYSTM workouts outdoors.

@oggie41 When you say you can download a workout file from do you mean a previous workout you’ve done on SYSTM or is there a workout builder?

There’s a workout builder on there.


@oggie41, @JGreengrass if I can cross-post here also, you could pre-seed your with every sessions you fancied being able to use also, or even just every SYSTM session if you felt so inclined.

Here’s a route for moving your planned SYSTM sessions into in advance (requires some technical competency, but not much): Systm workouts on RGT (workaround) - #21 by FurryGorilla


Thanks for the replies, interesting and not what I expected. I presumed the solution would be another app that I’m not aware of where I can build sessions and control the kickr from, does this exist?

I have a garmin gps unit and hadn’t considered sending workouts to this. Will it be able to control the Wahoo Kickr and how is the user interface, can I see what power is coming up and when etc.

Yes. Just set the Mode to indoor ride and your Garmin will control the trainer.

I realize I’m not answering your specific question about alternative ways of running workouts on your trainer, but I find that the yoga and strength sessions alone provide enough value for me to keep my subscription going through the summer. I may not use the bike workouts as much over summer, but I do use the strength and yoga regularly.
