Finally gave Charge Running a try. Wow amazed at the experience!
Positive company mission
Easy to use
Strong feature set
I have been running for about 10 years and always thought I preferred solo runs in order to just zone out and be by myself for awhile. But since trying Charge as part of a free trial about 10 months ago, I have rarely run without it. Running has never felt easier or more natural. I never worked in walk breaks when running on my own, but since following the coaches' directions, my paces are consistently faster, while my runs still leave me feeling refreshed and smiling. I genuinely look forward to every run in a way I never did in the years of running without it :)
@matthew_knippen, your pricing is quite aggressive for a consumer app. Either I get a 7-day trial with a $230 annual subscription or it's $30 to try it. The pricing is not revealed upfront either - it is buried deep in FAQ. Did you arrive to it by experimenting? Also, there are plenty of negative reviews on GooglePlay from ripped off customers who tried to cancel and got hit with a $120 bill. Any comment to that?
I started using charge after I ran my first marathon. It keep you motivated and I have ran right through the winter months which can be difficult because of the cold weather. My husband thinks I am nut when I say I am going for a run with my running group. He is like do you know how cold it is and I say yes I just have to layer more. I love the this app
I love plugging into charge for a run, Ive been using it since January and its wicked, training tips, motivation, pacing it really helps balance the level of effort that you put into a run which has enabled me to train more consistently.
