Pushing an Outside Workout to Wahoo

Scheduled TrainerRoad Outside Workouts can be pushed to Wahoo head units.  Here are the steps to set that up!

Authorize Wahoo to Pull From TrainerRoad

To allow Wahoo to pull Outside Workouts from TrainerRoad, go to the Profile section of your Wahoo ELEMNT App, and select Authorized Apps.  


Authorize Wahoo to pull workouts from TrainerRoad.   


Sync Workouts back to TrainerRoad

Authorize Wahoo to send workouts to Strava. 


Enable Activity Sync with Strava to pull the workout back into TrainerRoad. For more information on enabling Activity Sync with Strava, click here.   

Scheduling a Workout

Once Wahoo is authorized to pull from TrainerRoad, swap your scheduled workout for its outside version.

  • Please note that this is not possible for the Ramp Test.

    If you would like to complete an FTP test outside, use either the 8-minute or 20-minute FTP test. The Ramp Test is not designed for outside fitness assessments. 


TrainerRoad workouts are made available to Wahoo 3 days in advance and will show "Ready to be pulled for Wahoo."   


How to Manually Sync Individual Workouts to Wahoo

  1. Click on the workout that you'd like to push to your head unit. 
  2. Select "Push to Wahoo"

Pulling from TrainerRoad and Starting a Workout

Since Wahoo pulls workouts from TrainerRoad, you'll need to access the Wahoo ELEMENT Companion App to pull and start outside TrainerRoad Workouts.

Once in the app, select Pick a Planned Workout.


Wahoo will automatically search for and pull any scheduled outside workouts.  


To start a workout, select a planned workout and press Select Workout Plan when your ELEMNT head unit is paired to the app.  


The message Plan Loaded will appear on your ELEMNT once the workout has been loaded.


Navigate to the workout screen and you are ready to ride!
