Can we import workout data from another system?

To help make a smooth transition from your previous workout system, we have an import tool available that can do a one-time import of all your athlete's past barbell lift and benchmark history. If you follow the instructions and data format below, we should be able to bring in your athlete data from systems like Wodify, Beyond the Whiteboard, ZenPlanner, and others.

Important: This import process is for an entire gym coming to SugarWOD from another system. At this time, we can not do individual athlete imports.

The basic process:

1. In your current system, export the workouts for all your athletes into a single file.

2. Using a spreadsheet program (Google Spreadsheets, Apple Numbers, Microsoft Excel, etc.), modify the workout columns and data to match the SugarWOD workout data format. The format must match our sample import file in #2 below in order for the import to work.

3. Drop the file here in our Dropbox account:

4. Send us an email at, alert us to your new file, and let us know any special instructions.

5. The SugarWOD team will import the file and notify you by email when complete.


Some important details:

1. We can import CrossFit Benchmarks (e.g. Girls, Heroes, Games, Notables), most Barbell lifts, Endurance workouts (e.g. Run, Row, & Ski) and any of your Gym Named workouts provided that you have created them in advance (add a Gym Benchmark here). Other workout data will be ignored.

2. You should format your files to match our sample import file. You can download a copy of our sample file and copy/paste your data into it.

Sample Import File:

Please be sure to look at all "tabs" in the spreadsheet.

3. The names of your benchmark workouts (Girls, Heroes, etc.) and Barbell Lifts must match our names for the workout history and PRs to import correctly. This match is not case-sensitive (e.g. "Fran" = "FRAN").

Our list of benchmark and barbell lift names is here:

Please be sure to look at all "tabs" in the spreadsheet.

4. The SugarWOD team will do the import for you. The import tool is not currently available to you (or your athletes) to run manually.

5. Due to the large variations in data formats and quality, we can't guarantee 100% of the data will be able to be imported. We will give it our best effort!
