I have a question on using TrainerRoad with Zwift

I know there are quite a few people that are using TrainerRoad with Zwift. My question is, is there a way to have the Trainer Road workout appear in Zwift so that when you finished one interval or a new interval is coming up you can see it with the archway on Zwift. What I don’t want to do is simply be on Zwift peddling around. I would rather have it so that the Zwift is visualising what the workout is showing/doing on the TrainerRoad app. I have an elite direto trainer and have the option of using a TrainerRoad app on my phone and Zwift on my iPad. Hopefully there is a simple way of making this work.

nope, gotta use the apps separately


No, this kind of integration is not possible. Only thing you could do is running the Zwift App on your computer in the window mode (not full screen) and use the TR app in entertainment mode which then would show the intervals on the bottom of your screen.


You can do it like this on an iPad. As others have said not full integration, but not a terrible option. DCR has a great post with instructions.


This is what I’ve done for years, works great. If there are instructions in the workout they’ll appear on the middle of the screen as well.


This is actually my favorite way to do it as well when using my computer.


That’s pretty much how I do it. I have to start Zwift first and then TR after otherwise the TR app connects to all the ANT+ and BT signals and won’t let go of them for Zwift to connect.

When I used to use both, I had TR on my mobile, and just full screened zwift (on ATV).

I created simple custom Zwift workouts which are e.g 60 minutes of freeride. Other Zwifters see that I am doing a workout, drafting is turned off, and IIRC you get bonus XP.

Yes, you can do this, but it also violates your ToA with TR.

I’ve been watching this topic and I’m honestly surprised it took this many comments to hit that issue. :stuck_out_tongue:


Something I overlooked :hear_no_evil: I’ll go back to my iPad a have to give the arches a miss

I use my Garmin to run the workout as an outside workout then have Zwift up on screen. At the end, I discard the Garmin data and let Zwift upload.
