IMPORTANT: When adding the 'Location' field, you will want to make sure to make the field type as 'Text.' This location will pull from the athletes default location within their Wodify profile and will allow you to send emails within Mailchimp based on Location.


Next, you'll need to setup Wodify to complete the integration:

  • Login to Wodify Admin
  • Click 'Communication' > 'Settings'
  • Click 'MailChimp Integration' across the top
  • Click 'Enable'
  • New fields are displayed:
    • MailChimp API Key
      • To find your key, go back to MailChimp and click the Account tab
      • Click 'API Keys & Authorized Apps'
      • Copy the long alpha-numeric text in the API Key column
      • Paste this value into the MailChimp API Key field in Wodify
    • MailChimp List
      • Enter the name of the list you just created in MailChimp
    • Add existing athletes to MailChimp

Finally, if you have existing athletes in Wodify, you can easily add them to your MailChimp list:

  1. Go to 'Communication' > 'Settings' > 'MailChimp Integration'
  2. Click the link 'Add exisiting athletes to MailChimp' 

All athletes created after your MailChimp integration is completed will automatically be added to your MailChimp list.
