Getting your daily dose of physical exercise is important if you want to live a long and healthy life. Whether it’s through sports, yoga or weight training, it’s always a good idea to move your body as much as possible. For many people, going to the gym has become part of their daily routine, and for good reason. Gyms are great places to learn about personal fitness and even meet new people. If you’re planning your next trip to the gym and don’t want to go alone, there’s an app called NavaFit that will help you find gym buddies near you.
Once installed, you’ll be asked to create an account with your Facebook account or email address. When your account is ready to go, a brief tutorial guides you through the different features of the app, explaining how you can use it to find gym buddies in your area. The best way to describe this app is “a dating platform for gym buddies.” It’s like Tinder in the sense that you have to tap yes or no to match with with other people who are interested in going to the gym.
Everyone you successfully match with then becomes part of your squad. You can also invite others to join by tapping on the icon located on the top left-hand corner of the screen and view all the people you’ve matched with by tapping “My Squad”. It’s a pretty straightforward design that you’ll be able to grasp within seconds of using the app. However, one of the unique parts of the app is the “Brag” section which lets you brag about yourself with pics and videos. Each post you add will be viewed by your squad and liked by other members.
In the activities section, you can add and find activities near you. You can also send messages directly to your team and make plans with them. If you want to change your preferences, tap on the settings icon on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, and you can modify fitness details, exercise preferences, squad preferences and push notifications. You can even win prizes every month by taking part in the rewards program.
NavaFit is free to download in the iTunes app store for devices running iOS 8.0 or later.
