Fitness Singles is an online dating community for sports and fitness enthusiasts or those who want to meet them. Members list their sporting activities and level or proficiency in each, and can "match-up" with others who share similar interests.
Those people whose sporting activities or health regime is an important aspect of their lives may find Fitness Singles an apt spot for meeting their next "significant other". Of course it also serves as a place for those who may not be "sporty", but want to meet an "athletic type".
New members are required to fill in several pages of information, including their sporting activities, general appearance, employment and smoking and drinking habits as well as a description of themselves.
There are three options for those who want to upgrade (required for any contacts): Rookie (1 month), Amateur (3 months) and Pro (6 months). Membership privileges are the same and differ only in the length of time - the lowest subscription starts at $39.50 for 1 month, but there are discounts available when signing up for longer periods.
All profiles are checked before going live on the site, and although you'll be able to gain access, several features (including email) will be blocked until you're approved.
Three profile searches are provided; the basic search, advanced search, and username search. Basic search allows you to find compatible members quickly by their age, desired relationship and their location.
The advanced search offers an array of additional choices to help you to whittle down your list of potential matches. Clicking on a photo in the resulting lists will reveal the full profile of that person, which includes their public photo album, physical activities, and their level of expertise in each of their sports.
It's possible to message him/her from here (once your profile is approved), using either the site's email system, winks, or chat if they happen to be online. If you have a "free account" you will find you're prompted to upgrade on trying to access chat or email. Flirts (showing interest) can be sent for free but that's all.
Fitness Singles has around 33,000 active users which makes it one of the biggest "specialist fitness" dating sites at the present time. Most of the people on the site are dedicated to some sporting activity or other; some are seeking a partner to join them in their activities, while others are seeking romantic connections.
Prospective members should note, as some of the comment post below have mentioned, other sites with much larger membership also have the ability to search for members based on sporting and fitness interest.
