Stop trying to pick women up at the gym and download SWEATT instead. The new app, exclusive to New York City, is hitting iTunes early next week. It’s a dating app geared toward the fitness community (as you can infer from the name), which allows users to answer questions about their fitness regimen, then matches them with men or women who have similar lifestyle, fitness, and wellness preferences.
Founder Dan Ilani told amNew York that with the influx of Tinder-esque dating apps popping up in the marketplace, there’s been a reduction of quality matches.
“What I realized was missing from the experience that I was having was not just finding people with shared interests, but really people with a shared mindset,” Ilani said. “That's an interesting filter that is harder to come by these days. In the last decade or so, fitness has gone from becoming fit to a culture and a lifestyle.”
He says the app works like any other dating app, only the visual experience looks more like Instagram. “Some of the questions we ask you are your favorite time of day to work out and your average frequency of workouts per week, and behind the scenes we use those calculations to make some guesses about your overall lifestyle and offer good quality options."
