It’s never too late to get in shape, and if you enjoy yourself some good old cardio, there’s a new running app called Charge Running out there so that even if you’re running alone, you feel like you always have a partner right there with you.

Running Alone Truly Does Suck, but Now You Don't Have to with Charge Running

The app is called Charge Running, available for iOS the fitness app is designed to be more than just tracking your pace and distance and spitting it back at you. It’s not that same tired app that plays pre-recorded audio to motivate you over and over. Charge Running’s goal is to push you to get that run in as if you were running with your best friend right by your side.

How the app manages to do this is by allowing you to run LIVE alongside other runners, on top of being live coached to help you go the distance. It’s probably the most social running experience I’ve seen in any other app other that my Apple Watch’s “activity” app that basically challenges you to keep up with your friends, but even that doesn’t give you the ability to compete with runners anywhere in the world in real-time. Complete with a live leader-board, it tracks where you are in the pack to keep you motivated to try to do your personal best (while adding a bit of competition into the fold). Here are some additional features of Charge Running:

·       The ability to compete with runners anywhere in the world in real-time

·       A live Leaderboard that shows where you are in the pack to keep you pushing

·       Live, personalized feedback from professional trainers 

·       Group chat with coaches and fellow runners throughout the run

·       On-demand runs for times you can’t join the live groups 

·       A choice of difficulty levels and race types 

·       And more
