5 Apps to Help You Find Your Perfect Workout Buddy

We’re always going on and on about how great it is to have a workout buddy and a support system of fit friends. But what if no one you know wants to shake their groove thing in that Zumba class? Or talk chafing? Or discuss all the freakin’ amazing things muscles do (over mimosas, of course)?

Girl, you gotta get yourself a workout buddy!

And we have some apps and sites that’ll totally help you to find your community of fit friends. Your perfect workout buddy (or buddies) is out there — you just gotta know where to look!

1. Jaha

This free app (on Apple, coming to Android later this year) was actually created for one reason and one reason only: to help you find a workout buddy that’s perfect for you! Jaha is a location-based app that helps you find others in your neighborhood to exercise, play a sport or work out with. You simply fill out a profile section to identify your interests and then you can find similar like-minded peeps within a certain distance, age range and gender. Once you’re buds, you can chat on the app, create customizable challenges for friendly competitions and track your progress.

2. Strava

If you’re training for an event and/or like a challenge and need a workout buddy, try Strava, which offers a lot of features (it’s awesome for tracking pretty much any workout you do), but also has ongoing run and ride challenges that you can join. Follow other users on the site who are like-minded and then connect with them either on Strava or via other connected social media networks (Facebook, Twitter). This is quite the fit portal, especially if you’re training for something!

3. RunSocial

What’s better than running? Running social! RunSocial — which even Dean Karnazes uses — integrates digital running avatars into real-world footage, along with Facebook and Twitter integration, to create what the app calls, the “most social treadmill running experience available.” You can run with friends, colleagues or even participate in public events, like the London Marathon. Get this app, get running and get social.

4. Athlete Network

athlete-network

We believe that being an “athlete” is more of a mindset than a body type and Athlete Network couldn’t agree more. This network of active peeps was created to build an online community where fit users can fuel their driven lifestyle. Whether that’s making business connections, helping to land your dream job or simply finding someone to hit the tennis court with or go out for a run alongside, Athlete Network is the (online) place to be.

5. The Run

Okay, fine. So it’s not an app. But it is a fabulous place to make a workout buddy, more specifically a running buddy. The Run is an online community created by Brooks Running (confession: we’re a blog ambassador but are telling you this based on its awesomeness and not just our affiliation) where runners of all backgrounds and abilities are able to share stories, get running tips from experts and everyday runners, talk about races and gear, and meet other runners. It’s awesome.

Do you have a workout buddy? How did you meet him/her: virtually or in person? I’ve met so many fit friends online! Jenn

  1. For one, mimosas ARE the perfect drink to enjoy while talking chafing with your workout buddies. LOL. For two, I mainly have one workout buddy and that’s my hubby. We do a lot of activities together and as the weather gets cooler we’ll spend many lunch breaks and after work time outside walking and jogging…wogging. My sister-in-law has been on an awesome health kick lately as well, even though she lives in TX (while I’m in KS) it’s fun to talk fitness with her and different workout tips. Although, I think I might talk to my hubby about a couple of these and see about expanding our workout passion with others who enjoy it too…thanks for another addition of awesome “apps” to check out!

    P.S. I love your open honesty when you have a personal blog connection to something…even knowing that I still trust your opinion and high coo-dos on things!
