With VirtualTraining, you can easily create customized workouts suitable for you and your training goals.

Have you ever wondered how to create your own workout? Did your coach send you a prescribed workout, but it´s hard for you to stay at the prescribed resistance? Or just don´t want to bother with that? We have a solution: the VirtualTraining workout builder. 

With VirtualTraining, you can easily create customized cycling workouts suitable for you and your training. Plus, if you have a smart trainer, the app will take care of everything.


Get Started

To get started, log into the VirtualTraining web portal, go to "WORKOUTS" (1) and then select "CREATE WORKOUT" (2).  



From there you can create the following types of workouts: 

  • Power

 "Power" workouts are based on power numbers. This means that any „power“ workout will be the same for all cyclists. The resistance level does not change and operates exactly as set. 

  • Power/Kg

For the "Power/Kg" workouts, it is important to set your precise weight whenever your body weight has changed significantly. In Power/Kg workouts, the resistance level is adjusted accordingly.

  • % FTP

"% of FTP" workouts are based on the percentage of your Functional Threshold Power (FTP). Because of this, it is important to run an FTP test periodically; we recommend once per month. Of course, the frequency with which you re-test is always up to you and your training goals. 

  • % Grade

„%Grade“ workouts are based on a percentage of simulated incline. Before creating a % Grade workout, keep in mind the maximum slope gradient supported by your bike trainer. 

You can find this information on the manufacturer‘s website or in the trainer's manual under the "maximum simulated hill incline". You can set any number for the hill incline simulation in our app, but the applied resistance will not exceed the level your trainer is capable of supporting.



Editing Workouts

The workout editor is very intuitive. Many metrics and marks can be edited during the process of workout creation, such as:


SEGMENT INDICATORS – duration, value, segment name, video jump (2)


"Segment name" - we find it very useful to name each segment as you’ll see these names in the details of the finished workout:


  • it´s easier to analyze
  • and clearer than "Lap 1.....8"


VIDEO JUMP -  Video jump enables you to set specific video-play points before the start of the specific segment. The video time will be set up in the VirtualTraining apps as a new video time.

Once you complete edits on one segment, you can continue editing the remaining segments (3). Afterward, you’ll be able to see your workout summary and you’ll be able to edit workout properties. 

For example, you can create workout instructions for better motivation.  You can designate when and how long the motivational text will be displayed. The instructions are displayed in all VT Apps during workout training. 

You can also write a workout description, so it could be better categorized and recognized by other users.

Many people like motivational videos, which can be synchronized with famous videos from The Sufferfest, Real Ride Videos, etc. For more information visit our support at TheSufferFest, Real Ride video, etc. Remember that videos aren´t downloaded automatically and you have to set media permissions in pre-training settings.




Additional Features

One of the very useful features is the ability to set up workout SHARING LEVEL. There are four options


  • Public workout
  • Friends only
  • Selected users
  • Private workout


  Another useful feature is the ability to create Segment templates for further use:

  • Shift + Left click on a created segment 
  • Create template 
  • Enter name of the template 
  • Click Create

At the bottom of the page, there are saved templates with all the information like duration and power, which will be ready for you to use in other workouts



When you are done, you can either click Create Workout or save the project to continue edits at a later time. Upon the confirmation of creation, you will see the created workout in your workout list. 

Once created, you will also be able to see this workout in your device (automatically synchronized with your web-dashboard profile).


How to Import An Existing Workout


To import an existing workout, click "Workouts" button and then IMPORT WORKOUT.



There are two supported file formats for importing:


  • .ERG - defines segments by power (watts)
  • .MRC - defines segments by FTP


Choose a file with either of the formats and upload it. When the upload is finished, you will find your imported workout in the workout panel.


You can always find the actual up-to-date information on workouts in our knowledge base. Enjoy your custom workouts and train on!

    It would be really nice if we could create segments that ramped up or ramped down the power/%ftp. Yeah, we can do that manually by creating many 10-30 second segments, but then those all show up as individual segments in the workout file, which gets messy.

      Also, setting a recommended cadence would be nice too.
  • luddy8436 - 17.12.2020
    Do you need to have a smart trainer to do workouts? I have a classic trainer with speed and cadence sensors and that is not an option when choosing trainer type... I'm confused.

    Is there a version of Rouvy Workout for Mac OS yet? Bummer
    • ROUVY - 13.12.2020
      Hello Jack,

      Rouvy Workouts app is available for Windows, iPad, iPhone, Android. If you would like to use Mac, you have to download our new ROUVY AR app. Thank you for your understanding.

      Best regards,
      Rouvy team

    It seems to be a problem thats been going on for a while. I created a workout and at first it worked. I wanted to do a created workout 2days later and it disappeared from my Ipad. How annoying. Happy to still be in my trial period. I think I'll go back to Zwift
    • ROUVY - 13.11.2020
      Hello, there was a little problem and it's fixed. We apologize for that. Enjoy your rides and stay safe !!!
  • sv_brightside - 31.10.2020
    How can I find any of the workouts in the program itself? I have Rouvy AR installed on my Windows PC, but there doesn't seem to be any way to access workouts at all, let alone my created one.
    • ROUVY - 13.12.2020
      Yes, you may create your own workouts but you have to ride on the Rouvy Workouts app. Unfortunately, the Rouvy AR app doesn´t support workouts now. But we are working on it.
      Thank you for your understanding.

      Best regards,
      Rouvy team

  • rogerc. - 28.10.2020
    It doesn't look like anyone supports or helps in these comments. I see the same question asked many times, which is the same one I have....that I have created and saved a workout but there is no way to find where it is saved, and it does not appear in the application once created. I can see it on the web but not in the application. Obviously it's useless if it doesn't appear the application and the instructions on how to import it are bad and don't outline where the file would be saved to import it. At least not on Mac.
