New Gymbud App lets exercisers connect, date and train together
A new to the market App is enabling exercisers to connect with people in their local area based on their their fitness interests.
Enabling people to connect, date and train together, the Gymbud app was created by Sydney-based Colin Tilini after his girlfriend cancelled on him for their gym date.
Realising an opportunity for a service to connect people with reliable training partners he worked with a team of industry experts and professional App developers, to create a platform for fitness enthusiasts to connect with like-minded people with similar freetime interests.
Tilini explains “for a lot of people, fitness isn’t easy. Training on your own is hard work and requires a lot of self motivation. You definitely train more often and enjoy exercise more when you have someone to train with.
“That’s why I created Gymbud, to provide people with the opportunity to find someone to exercise with. And if they meet someone neat along the way who becomes more than just a training partner, all the better.”
Gymbud functions primarily through the ‘Spot or Drop’ feature, which allows users to swipe through potential training partners and connect with them. The App displays a picture of a potential partner, their location, fitness focuses, and their age, and allows the user to either ‘Spot’ them, and connect further, or ‘Drop’ them.
Communication functions in the App enable users to message other Gymbudders directly.
Tilini adds “fitness should be accessible and relevant to everyone, regardless of who you are or what you look like.Everyone has to start somewhere and this is what I love about Gymbud. The App is ideal for everyone, fitness fanatics, people who train occasionally, and those who want to get into fitness.
“The dating element is an added bonus. No doubt it is going to help people with similar fitness interests to connect without having to deal with clunky and expensive online dating sites.
“Gymbud gives the average Joe who has never been in a gym before an opportunity to get their foot in the door and find other people who are looking to better themselves.”
Gymbud can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play.
