As the name suggests, this site is for physically active singles of all ages. Rather than awkwardly meeting for coffee or barely talking to each other at a movie, these people want to engage in a fun activity while getting to know someone new.
While lots of sites focus on establishing that physical, intimate connection early on, Fitness Singles encourages members to meet offline and engage in physical activity to get to know each other. It’s a refreshing take that may appeal to singles who are looking for something new and unique. Members of the website enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, going on runs, playing tennis, and more.
If you’re hesitant about Fitness Singles, know that it boasts real success stories on its website. If staying active is important to you and is something that you want in a partner, then this may be a good platform to check out.
|Active weekly members||40,000|
The platform has about two million members, with a majority of them located in the United States. That said, the user base is global and there are plenty of members in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and even Ireland.
There are slightly more men than women, but most surprisingly, the most popular age group on Fitness Singles is 55+ (28%) followed by 25-34 (22%). In an average week, there are 40,000 active users.
Many members are looking for long-term relationships rather than a quick hookup. Given that the majority of users are middle-aged or older, it makes sense that they’re looking for a lifelong partner. A lot of the more mature adults are widowed or divorced and looking for a second chance at love.
Creating A Profile
Ideally, you’ll be creating a profile on Fitness Singles if you want to meet someone who can be your romantic partner, but also a workout buddy. The sign-up process is a bit intense but will take less than 15 minutes to complete.
Registration is free and requires a valid email address, which will remain confidential. On the homepage, enter your gender as well as the gender and age range of the people you’re looking to meet. Next, enter your birth date, country, and zip code. Then, you’ll have to come up with a username and password for your profile.
At this point, you can select hobbies and sports from a long list of activities. The sports vary from bodybuilding to hang-gliding to pickleball and much more. You can choose as many as you want, but you’ll ultimately need to decide on your top three favorites and your proficiency in each.
At this point, you’ll be asked questions about your body type and appearance, such as your height, weight, ethnicity, and favorite features. Select your marital status, whether you have (or want) kids, and your education level. Then it’s time to answer questions based on your diet and lifestyle. Are you vegan? Paleo? Do you smoke or drink? Answering these questions will help you meet like-minded people.
The last step is to upload a photo and write a brief bio about yourself. The Quality Assurance team will review your profile, but in the meantime, you can start browsing your matches.
Finding A Match
The service offers free search filters as well as the ability to conduct custom searches based on location, age, ethnicity, and more. You can also save your search preferences for later.
You’ll have a few different options here for finding a suitable match. First, you can search by who’s currently online or who’s new to the site. The Top 25 lists give you a glance at the most popular members of the moment. There are the Top 25 Males and Top 25 Females lists.
If you find someone you like, check out their profile to see their hobbies and interests, as well as more details about their life. Remember the detailed sign-up process? It comes in handy when viewing other profiles! You can also peek at their photos and save their profile for future reference. Clicking the “Show Interest” button will give them a teaser that you’d like to know more about them.
Remember, you’ll get more ways to communicate and interact if you’re a paid member. Free users are limited to showing an interest only.
Using the Site
As usual, you’ll have limited features as a non-paying member. As a free user, you can view profile pictures and information, utilize the search filters to find results, and send a flirty nod to other members. Even though you can’t send them a message, you can let them know that they’ve caught your eye by clicking the “Show interest” button. However, there isn’t much to do from there unless you sign up for a subscription package.
The benefits of being a paying member include being able to view public and private photos, send and receive emails, and access the instant messaging feature. This way, you can truly get to know someone on a deeper level rather than simply relying on what their profile says.
There aren’t any games or extra features on Fitness Singles which makes sense because the site is about finding a workout buddy that you feel romantic attraction to. So rather than chatting online, you both can meet up face-to-face and head to the gym or a sporting event.
The dashboard is located at the top of the page and is where you can access your profile, the search filters, and your messages. The user interface is streamlined and simple, making it easy to browse profiles, see search results, and navigate the site in general. While there aren’t many design distractions to deal with, there are banners and side ads, which can get annoying.
Fitness Singles is optimized for push notifications on a mobile device, but there’s no mobile app available at this time. Still, you can get updates on your phone whenever someone sends you a message on the site.
You can get in touch with the service by emailing photo@fitnessSingles.com or calling 1-800-252-0044. The business address is FitnessSingles/e-Unity Corp. 125 Pine St. Hamburg, NY 14075. Alternatively, if you scroll to the bottom of the page, you can click on the “Contact Us” link to submit a request ticket.
Fitness Singles has a Quality Assurance team which is, well, reassuring. The staff reviews new sign-ups to ensure that only quality profiles are getting through. This helps to keep the dating pool safe and engaging.
You can block anyone who is bothering you on the site, too. If you go to a person’s profile, you’ll notice a “Block member” link under their photo. Moreover, there is a safety tips page on the website where you can read advice on how to stay safe while using the site, as well as red flags to watch out for.
Again, a paid membership is the way to go if you want to get the most out of this site. As a subscriber, you can send and receive emails, view all photos, and engaging in one-on-one chats. Free members can use the search filters, show interest, and view profile information.
The service’s pricing is a bit higher than average, but the quality of profiles is also much better than other sites. You can pay by credit or debit card, PayPal, or check. Be aware that subscriptions automatically renew, so be sure to cancel at least one day before their renewal date to avoid extra fees.
A one-month subscription costs $39.99, but you’ll save money if you opt for a longer membership period. Three months costs $21.99 per month ($65.97 total) and six months costs $14.99 per month ($89.94 total). A year-long membership is also available for $9.99 per month ($119.88 total). This last option comes with the Perfect Fit Guarantee.
