Can I upload my .fit file/activity to a third-party site?

Zwift saves all of your workout files as an industry standard .fit file that you can automatically or manually upload to Strava, Training Peaks, Today's Plan, Map My Run/Ride, and Garmin Connect. You can also download .fit files from your dashboard for all your activities and manually upload them to other sites.

Linking Zwift through the Zwift Companion app

The easiest, more surefire way to manage your account links is through the Zwift Companion app.

  1. Log in
  2. Tap the menu button in the top-left
  3. Tap Settings
  4. Tap Connections
  5. Tap the service you want to sign in to and log in to confirm access


Linking Zwift through the web

To link your account through an Internet browser, go to your Zwift Dashboard > Settings > Connections. From there, you can manage your third-party account links with the click of a button.


From there, you'll just need to log in via the prompt that appears.

If you encounter any problems linking your Zwift account through the web:

  • Update your Internet browser to the newest version/try a different browser.
  • Try using Private/Incognito mode in your browser or disabling any browser add-ons.
  • Allow both and the third-party site to download cookies to your computer.
  • Make exceptions for both and the third-party site to run Javascript locally. 


If you have multiple people sharing the same computer, make sure that the correct user is logged into the third-party site before connecting - and not one of the other users - to avoiding connecting your Zwift account to the wrong account.


Downloading your .fit File from your Dashboard

If you need to manually upload any Zwift rides that successfully completed to other third-party sites, you can download the .fit file from your dashboard. Steps for manually uploading will vary from site-to-site; please consult the individual service's instructions.

Finding your Local .fit File

If for any reason you experience an issue, such as a game crash or Internet loss, your fit file is automatically saved every 10 minutes in the \Documents\Zwift\Activities folder on your computer.


On the Title screen, tap the Zwift logo three times to bring up the file browser.


If you're riding on iOS, you can reach your .fit file by:

  1. Starting up the Zwift Application.
  2. Tapping on the 'Zwift' Logo 3 times.
  3. This will open up a browser, allowing you to choose your file (log or .FIT) and then email them to whomever you'd like, yourself included.

Partner-Specific Questions

If you're having issues with how your file is displayed on one of these third-party accounts, you may want to contact them directly for further support. We've also included some common questions below:

Garmin Connect

  • Q: Why aren't my workouts showing my power numbers?
  • A: Virtual rides may not show power or cadence numbers on Garmin Connect Mobile. If the data is present on the Garmin Connect website, you may be able to force them to display by altering the activity type from "Virtual Ride" to "Indoor Cycling."

  • Q: Why isn't my elevation showing up correctly?
  • A: Garmin's virtual ride type counts the elevation from the real-world GPS location, not Zwift's virtual elevation. They're working on this.
