Find Your Next Fitness BFF For Free With FitMatch!

I’ll admit, I don’t have many fitness besties. I have lot of friends that I love to workout with but it’s usually a very scheduled affair. My schedule can go from complicated to uncomplicated from week to week so setting up something consistent is out of the question. I personally love working out with friends because it is an awesome way to connect (in person) while doing something amazing for our bodies and mental health.FitMatch -- A Brand New Fitness App That Connects You With Your New Fitness BFF!

Earlier this week I was invited to a workout class to celebrate the launch of “FitMatch” a new app that connects you to fitness minded people wherever you are in the world. I was a bit intimidated when I saw a pic of the personal trainer/actor/model Ngo Okafor who would be teaching the class. I had no idea what was in store for me, but change only happens outside of the comfort zone right?FitMatch -- A Brand New Fitness App That Connects You With Your New Fitness BFF!

I took a quick train ride to 14th Street in Manhattan where I was introduced to CLAY Health Club + Spa a stunning gym and wellness spa hidden away on the second floor of a very unassuming building. There are so many beautiful gyms all around the city that I’ve never been to!

When I walked her I heard the familiar sound of Afro-Caribbean beats and I felt right at home. This is what I listen to when I run, so I was already motivated to move! Ngo introduced himself and his app, mentioning that he is ALL about community when it comes to fitness. I couldn’t agree more!

“I started this app because I believe that having a workout buddy who shares you fitness interests makes working out more fun, holds you accountable for working out and encourages you to workout harder”.

The class was a really good mashup of body weight moves and boxing. We did a lot of combinations that worked our entire bodies! The music was SO good and the energy in the room was fantastic! We even did full pushups with punches in between…!

We had some amazing delicious smoothies post workout, this one was called the Lemon Berry…so good! There is a FULL smoothie bar in CLAY that just makes the gym even better. I couldn’t decide which one to get because they all looked so yummy!

The cool thing about the FitMatch app is that users can create a customizable profile based on your individual skill level. You can input your workout time preference, location and more. Some of the activities that are currently in the app include Spinning, Boxing, Biking, Pilates, Running, Yoga and more! Think about the app as a fitness Yelp meets Tinder. 🙂 You can add this to the list of Must Have Fitness Apps for your Smartphone!

FitMatch is currently available to download for free in the app store! For more info on FitMatch check out the website here!

Yes, I would! I started working out because a friend dragged me along with a free pass. And even a hike at the dog park is awesome with a friend.. and my dog.. and my friend’s dog.
