Happy hour or a 60 -minute spin class which do you choose on a busy day?
A new dating app Sweatt, might just have the solution.
Simply put, if you combined Tinder and Class Pass, youd have Sweatt. The apps algorithm matches people based on how often and when they work up, what their favorite classes or activities are, and any kind of diet predilection, from raw to paleo. Users also have the option to write a short profile.
Most dating apps match users based on things in common, whether its friends, ethnicity or music. Similarly, for many people, fitness isnt merely a pastime; its a lifestyle, which can be a building block toward deep emotional connection.
You don’t have to love the same kinds of fitness; someone into yoga could match well with a marathon runner simply because they understand each others priorities.
While you’d think it would be easy to satisfy other people at the gym, you are able run into some familiar problems: people work up employing headphones or while watching their phones( not very inviting ), or you just see the same people every day.
Sweatt connects people you don’t consider every day but who share one of your top interests.
While Sweatt presents opportunities to create real relationships, the app is ripe with gym selfies, so beware. In fact, Sweatt sets major emphasis on the importance of profile paintings with the option to post five full-size profile photos.
While the creator of the app Dan Ilani insists Sweatt isnt a hookup app, judging by the photos of the user base, some might be mistaken. This could potentially be frustrating for some people.
However, the app could help shake up the first date. Sweatt users might forgo dinner and beverages for a physical activity instead, such as hiking or taking a class together, a playful opportunity to to know person.
And even if the date doesnt go well, at the least users won’t miss their workout.
