FitnessMatchmaker is a fun, colorful dating website for fit singles. It focuses on bringing like-minded sports enthusiasts together online, providing email and instant chat options.
Becoming a member is quick and easy. Whilst you can add plenty of detail to your account on sign-up, you can also leave the nitty gritty until later on, allowing you to quickly get searching through profiles.
Sports and fitness is the main focus of this dating site, so some of your profile information and search options revolve around physical activities. If you’re not much into playing the sport yourself and prefer to watch, you can also seek out members who are happy to join you on the couch in front of the big screen, or at the sidelines of event itself.
Members can upload multiple photos and you can also play the “would you like to meet?” game. Here, you are faced with a series of profile photos. You simply click “yes”, “maybe” or “no” to answer whether you’d like to meet that person. If they reciprocate with a positive answer, the site lets you both know and you can get chatting away.
You can talk to members using an instant messenger or email-style service. Upgraded members can also find out when their messages have been read, receiving notifications to update them. Other tools let you know who has been viewing your profile, and you can also add members to your list of favorites, so you can easily locate them in the future.
The site has areas for interest groups, which you can also search through to find dates. This is good to see, although it could be developed further to really make sports and fitness a more prominent feature across the community and the site more generally.
FitnessMatchMaker.com is keen to match you with members who share your interests. They use your profile preferences, such as physical and social attributes, as well as sporting interests, to find ideal dates in your area (or further away if you’d like to travel). You can also search for partners using a fairly detailed search tool, with advanced options for upgraded members.
To get the most out of the site, and to communicate with members, you’ll need to upgrade from a free account. Prices are very affordable, and lower than a number of other fitness dating sites we’ve used. You can choose from a standard or premium plan, with the latter option providing profile highlighting and top listing in search results, allowing you to get more attention for some time.
You can access your account from a mobile device, which is particularly handy if you have decided to receive email notifications, because it means you can talk to new members or respond to messages when on the move. This can give you the edge over other members, providing a way for you to get chatting straight away.
Although it’s lacking a few extra features, and membership numbers didn’t bowl us over, we felt that Fitness Matchmaker was a fun, engaging site with communication tools that worked. Its prices are very affordable, with a few extras if you’ve a couple more dollars to spend on finding your perfect sporty partner.
