Runsmart is a recently created startup focused on developing an artificial-intelligence-powered running mentor that understands you and your needs in order to design highly personalized training plans that adapt to your lifestyle. In a world where runners are obsessed with performance, bad planning and a lack of a holistic approach to training lead many runners to get injured every year and struggle to enjoy their running activities . Runsmart aims to give the power back to runners by analysing their daily running data and sensations to predict (based on scientific research) the most effective and injury-free weekly training plan that fits with your life and allows you to focus only on enjoying running.
