Elite Fitness Dating is a dating site for people who take care of their bodies. Once deeming itself a site for bodybuilding enthusiasts, it’s now much more generally targeted at people who like to stay fit.
This site includes a few extra features you won’t find on other fitness dating sites. For example, members can write and upload diary entries (much like blog posts) where others can read about their lives. This is an interesting way to get to know someone, what they enjoy and with whom they might enjoy it.
Another unusual feature is the Encounters game, whereby you see a profile photo and choose whether or not you like what you see. If you like someone and they like you back, the website puts you in touch with them, and from there love may blossom.
Joining this site is a mixed experience. We struggled to sign up because we were told that the site was not available for our country. Why, then, is it listed in the options? This seems quite a foolish system. Fine, the world is our home, so we opt for another location and things move more smoothly. Once you start, registering is quick and simple – it’s just a shame about the initial confusion.
Once you’re a basic member, you can perform a basic search to find matches, or view your matches based on your personal preferences. This site is part of a much larger group of dating sites, so you can access a large number of profiles. Whilst this helps in terms of numbers, it’s less successful when it comes to being uniquely for fit members. That said, members on non-fitness dating websites still have interests in sports and other activities, so it’s only going to widen your horizons.
Members can find out who has been viewing their profile, allowing them to follow up on members who might be too shy to say hello. You can also upload multiple photographs and search for members who have photos. Elite Fitness Dating allows you to locate members who are online when you are, plus you can create a friends list, so you can always find someone to chat with.
You can talk to members using an instant messenger or email service, but there are no webcam options. Although the diary feature adds another level to the site, we would like to see more community features, and more focus on sports more generally.
Price-wise, it is a low cost service. Paired with the large number of members, it offers a cheap option for anyone looking for dates. Longer contracts offer better savings, and the upgrade options are uncomplicated.
With low prices, high membership numbers and some decent search and communication tools, EliteFitnessDating.com offers a solid dating service. However, if you’re really interested in seeking out fitness enthusiasts, the site might be a little too broad for your tastes. We recommend joining up for free, then performing a few searches to find out if there are members who will suit your preferences. If you like what you see, upgrading is cheap and allows you to get in touch quickly. So it's definitely worth exploring for free as a basic member.
