Zwiffer Inc., a Chicago-based mobile development company, announced today the official release of CHARGE Running, a new app-based fitness-tracking and coaching service that will bring a fun, social atmosphere to running.

We knew that with the right app, fitness-tracking technology could really improve the way we experience running, which can be a very lonely hobby.

The CHARGE Running App was founded on the belief that running without the company of others tends to be boring, less motivating, and tedious, but it can be tough finding a running partner when you need it.

“We knew that with the right app, fitness-tracking technology could really improve the way we experience running, which can be a very lonely hobby,” stated Matthew Knippen, CHARGE Running’s lead developer and CEO.

Discouraged by a surplus of run-of-the-mill apps that simply track and monitor runner data, Knippen and co-founders created a more social and engaging experience; when runners sign in to the CHARGE Running App for any number of daily, scheduled runs, they are linked with every other runner signed in and ranked among a live leaderboard. On top of that they get a live trainer coaching them through their run and keeping them up-to-date on their pace, distance, and more.

All of CHARGE Running’s trainers are uniquely-qualified, entertaining and highly- motivating; Levi Kane, for example, is famous for being the fastest 5k amputee on the planet and serves as a personal trainer to the CHARGE runners by providing live motivation, running tips, and live feedback on how each runner is doing.

The result is a unique blend of the intimacy of a boutique fitness class, the sociability of a group run, and the luxury of a personal trainer.

CHARGE runners are finding themselves more motivated, active and social. One anonymous early adopter describes CHARGE as, “Competitive, fun, different, rewarding." Another early user, Anna, said, "I forgot I was ever running! This run made my 25-minute run feel like it was 5 minutes!"

The app can be downloaded from Apple’s App Store. At $9.99 per month, CHARGE subscribers benefit from:
• Unlimited access to classes
• A unique class selection for runners of all levels

  • Live feedback from a selection of world-class trainers

• The LIVE Leaderboard, where users can see how they stack up against other runners in real-time
