  • Using as an Activity Destination: We can upload non-summary activities into TrainingPeaks, meaning that if you can download a GPX or TCX file from our Stream, we will be able to upload this data to TrainingPeaks. Summary information is not uploaded to TrainingPeaks.
  • Using as a Health Log: FitnessSyncer now features the ability to log your health data into TrainingPeaks. While we cannot read this information, any supported health information on our site can be published to TrainingPeaks to allow you to better plan your training sessions, including steps, resting heart rate, body composition, blood pressure, oxygen, sleep, and temperature.
