Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Continues to focus on teens

I'm Matthew, the co-founder and CEO of Charge Running. When we set out to build this app over a year ago, we always kept the goal of being friendly to teens and young adults. If you're child is able to run alone outside (or on a treadmill), you can rest assured they are safe with Charge. With Charge, they get live group fitness classes, and the opportunity to interact with certified fitness professionals. We do our best to make sure that everyone is running safely, and teach them about proper running techniques to avoid injury. Every trainer has gone through personal screening by at least three people, and qualified to coach and help your children. Our mission is to make running more fun and approachable for any age group. Starting proper fitness habits early in life is one of the best things that we can teach our children, and Charge Running is committed to doing whatever we can to make it easier for the next generation.
