Zwift How-to: Importing and Sharing Custom Workouts

on January 17, 2019

Want to share a custom Zwift workout with friends? Or perhaps you're looking to use a custom workout from a friend, coach, or other online source?

Zwift workouts are simple ".zwo" files, so sharing them just requires knowing how to access the file system on your Zwift device.


  • Add to your library: Any .zwo files moved to your Documents\Zwift\Workouts\<<Numeric Zwift ID>> folder will be added to your custom workouts menu the next time you launch the game.
  • Share with a friend: Go to your Documents\Zwift\Workouts\<<Numeric Zwift ID>> folder, find the file, and send it to your friend.

If multiple Zwifters access the platform on your device, there will be multiple Numeric Zwift ID folders visible. For assistance with locating your Zwift ID, select Contact Us at the bottom of this page.


Accessing your custom workouts folder on iOS requires a computer with iTunes installed.

The Sharing and Importing Custom Cycling Workouts>iOS section of this support article includes complete instructions for using iTunes to access your custom workouts on Zwift.

Apple TV

Even though it's currently not possible to import custom workouts directly on tvOS due to hardware limitations, you can import the custom workout to your account on another Zwift device (PC/Mac or iOS) and that workout will be automatically synced to your Apple TV.

Finding Your Custom Workouts in Zwift

After following the steps above, your workouts will show up under the Custom Workouts section the next time you start Zwift.

All that's left is to select and start the workout, then the real work begins. You got this!
