The Company Whagaa Software Inc. was founded in September, 2002 by Erik Florio. Whagaa develops instructional software for use on handheld computing devices that provides safe and effective learning, is easy and fun to use, and dramatically reduces the cost of training. The company also creates customized software programs for specialized training content on multiple device platforms.
Whagaa's initial software product, GoLearn Fitness, focuses on personal fitness training. GoLearn Fitness puts fitness training knowledge directly into the hands of users at a small fraction of personal trainers’ fees. The product empowers users to set up the best fitness program to meet their goals, demonstrates proper form, explains appropriate range of motion for each exercise, guides users to change and advance their fitness routine on a regular basis, and it even tracks activities and progress as well as offering nutrition tips for fitness training.
The company is presently expanding its product line to include training applications in the areas of Action Sports, Hobbies, Home Repair, Auto Repair, Cooking, and More.
Company MissionWhagaa is founded upon integrity, creativity and customer focus. The company is in business to help its customers achieve personal goals and become who they want to be. With its early market entry and unique approach, Whagaa strives to make “GoLearn” the de facto standard for mobile training software.
