Inspirun – running related smartphone application

Inspirun is an intelligent system for recreational runners which creates light and personalized running experiences. It is a personalized running-application for Android smartphones that aims to fill the gap between running on your own (static) schedule, and having a personal trainer that accommodates the schedule to your needs and profile. With the use of GPS and Bluetooth heart rate monitor support, a user’s progress gets tracked. The application adjusts the training schedule after each training session, motivating the runner without a real life coach (Vos, Janssen, Goudsmit, Lauwerijssen & Brombacher, 2016).
