Studies show working out with a partner can lead to a 200% longer workout. Don’t have one? FitMatch is an app that connects users to all things fitness — sort of like Tinder for gym buddies — so you can seek out a boxing partner, a running buddy, or a cycling pal. While you’re there, find nearby gyms and see real-time class schedules with user reviews. The app allows you to customize your profile with experience level, preferred times, favorite exercises and more.
FitMatch is the creation of two time Golden Glove Boxing Champion Ngo Okafor. The Nigerian ex-boxer and actor is one of the most searched for models of African descent on the internet, and I’m sure that looking at his abs, you can see why. His passion for fitness has lead to success both as a trainer (he’s been named “New York’s hottest”) and an app entrepreneur. Download FitMatch in the App Store now, and learn more by following @FIT_MATCH on Twitter.
