  1. Add support to import Fitbit data such as the Fitbit scale metrics and sleep data

    Many other sites support the Fitbit API to import data. As an added bonus, export workout summary data from TP to Fitbit site.

      We are currently beta testing an auto-sync of workout and body composition data from Fitbit to TrainingPeaks. At this time we are not syncing sleep or step data. If you would like to test this new feature you can connect your accounts using the link below. After connecting your accounts, new workouts and body composition measurements will automatically sync from your Fitbit account to your TrainingPeaks account.
      https://www.trainingpeaks.com/account/fitbit

      Please send feedback on this feature to beta@trainingpeaks.com and let us know how it is going!

    • Add the newer running dynamics, swimming metrics, cycling dynamics, SmO2, etc.

      The newer running dynamics metrics veritical oscilation and ground time (forerunner 620, fenix 2, etc...) and swimming metrics stroke counts, strokes per minute (forerunner 910XT, suunto Ambit 2) would be helpful since now many have to goto both Garmin Connect or mySuunto to get these metrics and then to trainingpeaks for everything else.

        The new running metrics are still on our radar. Wahoo has added a third, and there are more on the way. There are new power related data channels too that we are looking at as well.

        For swim workouts, I recommend looking at the laps/splits chart along with the time-series data. If you delete the rest intervals, the bar laps/splits chart will give you a set by set view of your workout.

      • Hungarian Translation

        Hi, I'm Gergely "Dagadt Köcsög (DK)" Moós. I'm one of the most popular running bloggers and running coaches in Hungary. I have built a huge running community and we would like to help in translating Training Peaks to Hungarian, which would definitely grow its popularity (unfortunately, a lot of us don't speak English well). I've been working on introducing Training Peaks to my readers and written posts about its benefits already. In addition, I'm also managing a community training programme with Training Peaks for more than 200 participants successfully. Based on this highly positive result, I'm planning to launch further…

          Great suggestion and we’ll certainly look to include Hungarian in a future release!

        • Add new workout types

          It would be nice to be able to create a new activity type to track. As an XC ski coach, I'd like to be able to track XC Ski- Skate and XC ski-Classic as well as Rollerski- Skate and Rollerski-Classic. It would also be good to be able to track Yoga and other activities that an athlete does regularly that don't fit neatly into the current categories.

            We have a plan to add the ability to tag workouts so that we can support an unlimited set of workout types. It’s in the works, albeit a ways off.. but we’re getting there! Thanks for the suggestion.

          • Current & Past Workout Comparison

            Just throwing this one out their but one I would like to see is that often I do the same workout, i.e the same run or bike ride. I would love to see the ability where you can look at your performance graph from the current session and then overlay a past event, you can then analyse how differently you approached things and can quite obviously see where performance gains and losses are.

                When you add a race on the calendar, it would be nice to be able to see a flag of that event on PMC.

                  • Equipment- hide and organize

                    From user, paraphrased:
                    I've got quite an arsenal of running shoes, and I would like to be able to re-order the list of shoes alphabetically or by brand.

                    It would also be nice to be able to hide retired shoes from the list. I don't want to delete the record, because that would also remove the history from my workouts.

                          We are currently have an auto-sync between the Garmin Index scale (via the Garmin Health API) and TrainingPeaks. Right now, the sync includes body composition metrics only. We will consider other metrics in the future. You can connect your accounts using the link below. After connecting your accounts, any new body composition (weight, etc) measurements taken with the Index scale will automatically sync from your Garmin account to your TrainingPeaks account.

                        • Recurring calendar item on TrainingPeaks?

                          i.e. a Client for the next 2 months cannot train on Mondays, so you could have a recurring calendar item for a date range that says "day off"

                          • Personalize for any Sport how TSS is calculated

                            It would be great, if the user could set how TSS is calculated for any sport.
                            For example, if I use HR I want the TSS of running always to be calculated by hrTSS not by rTSS.

                              While you’re not able to set a new default calc for TSS, you are now able to toggle which channel you want to use to calc TSS at the workout level. Hope this helps.

                            • Automatic Elevation correction

                              When a new workout is uploaded having the a setting to automatically apply elevation correction which out having to do this work each workout manually as you can do know would be a great workflow help. For users with devices without barometric altimeters this step is currently needed to get useful elevation data.

                              • Segments

                                It would be great to be able to create "segments" (some other sites already have them). This would enable one to monitor how one is doing over certain segments over time i.e. "that bugger of a climb at the end of your route", or whatever. It would also allow them to become competitive between friends and others.

                                In addition it would be great to have another two or so levels of magnification on the maps so one can set the routes and segments more accurately.

                                  The workout library is REALLY in need of an update. As a coach this is essentially the area I rely on the most and there are a number of things that make it more painful then it needs to be. A few suggestions:

                                  - Re-enabling workout codes would allow ability to filter workout types
                                  - Workout "tags" could allow better searching
                                  - Reorganizing workouts is painful. Example: I create a library called Swim Form/Efficiency... and then tried to look for all workouts with the word form in it so I could drag them into the Library, which was hidden because…

                                    Great improvement suggestions! Thanks for taking the time to put this together and certainly enhancements we’d like to enable in the future.

                                  • Personal best (Pb) chart and or record page!

                                    Hi, I have been using trainingpeaks for a while now and thought it would be nice to have somewhere to store PB's for common race distances. E.g 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon for the run and 10, 25, 50 and 100mile TT for the bike. Could either be done as a chart or just on the profile page. It would be nice just to have somewhere to have a permanent record to check.

                                    • Add support for Swim HR (Heart Rate) to AutoSync form Garmin

                                      It seems that this has been asked for by users in may places for over 18 month now, yet has never been implemented. To make it unmistakably clear how important this is to users I added this as a single request, rather than being mixed in and thus overlooked / forgotten.

                                      For clarification and to be precise:
                                      This feature request is for the support of reading the heart rate from a swim workout captured on a Garmin device directly via the Garmin AutoSync using the .FIT file. Manually exporting the file as TCX file from Garmin Connect, then opening training…

                                      • Expand Workout Builder to include all Garmin workout targets

                                        Expand the workout builder to include all workout targets available on Garmin devices. Pace, Speed, Cadence as intensity targets and duration to include lap press, HR, etc.

                                        Basically, as a coach, I want to be able to use all of these (at various times) to create workouts. Presently, I'm only able to use workout builder for a fraction of my workouts because of these constraints not being available.

                                        • Addition of self configured metrics

                                          The ability to add your own metrics specific to your personnel needs would be a great addition i.e. USG, additional mode states, etc
