Curl is an open-source tool and library used for transferring data. Curl can be downloaded from Additionally you will probably want to add curl to your PATH environment variable.

Alternatively on Linux you should be able to install curl via your package manager (yum, apt-get, etc). You may use a tool other than Curl to upload your data to the AthleteMonitoring API. That is outside the scope of this document however. The support AthleteMonitoring  is able to provide should you encounter problems may be limited.

File Formats

The page displaying your API Key (see the previous section) has templates for each of the imports. The import files you upload to AthleteMonitoring must match the format of the templates.

The file should be in .csv format. The first line of the file is treated as a header and will not be imported. All dates should be in YYYY-MM-DD format. The imports will end when the encounter a blank.

The same data can safely be imported multiple times. AthleteMonitoring  will attempt to match the data to existing records and update them instead of creating new ones where possible.
