Viewed My Profile
How do I contact other members?
Simply view their profile and click “Show Interest” or “Email”. Sending and reading email requires a premium membership.
Absolutely. All profiles are user generated and we are extremely diligent about removing any profiles that are misleading or created for purposes other than finding an activity partner or a date. Our editorial staff monitors profiles 24/7 and will intercept any profile we deem questionable before it enters the community.
Occasionally, if a profile is approved that turns out to be phony or an attempt to spam, we move quickly to remove it from our community. If you come across any of these profiles, please click here to report them immediately to our profile evaluation team and we will review the member in question promptly.
We find that our members do not have difficulty finding dates but instead are looking for a particular type of date that is centered around common interests. Remember, it’s not about quantity but about quality!
Fitness Singles members engage in active lifestyles and understand the importance of lifestyle compatibility when it comes to dating for the long run. When you have a busy life, however, you often have much less time to go out every week and sift through countless prospects to find one who is a suitable match. Fitness Singles enables health conscious people like you to find their ideal partner in a safe, convenient environment — it’s no wonder why we’re the most popular dating site of our type!
You may block a member by clicking “Block” after opening their mail or by viewing their profile and clicking “Block Member”. To unblock members, click “Blocked Members” on your Messages page and select the member you wish to unblock.
Once a member is blocked, the blocked member will no longer be able to contact you through messages. The blocked member will also be unable to view your profile. If you have been blocked by a member this will be indicated if an attempt to contact the blocking member is made.
As of now, we do not have a mobile application. However, you can access our services seamlessly through our mobile website. We are continuously working to enhance your experience, and your feedback is highly valuable to us.
Why should I subscribe to Fitness Singles?
At Fitness Singles you are free to create and post a profile, search profiles and tease via “Show Interest”. If someone you are interested in has “shown interest,” you must subscribe to begin the exchange of personal, customized messages. Once subscribed you have full access to all the features of the site. This includes the unlimited sending and receiving of messages.
Click “Subscribe” from the top menu after logging in. This option will not appear after subscribing.
You may pay by credit card, debit card, PayPal, or by mail (check or money order.) We accept the following major credit cards: MasterCard, Visa, Amex and Discover. Checks, and money orders require a minimum purchase of a three (3) or six (6) month subscription. Checks and money orders should be made out to e-Unity Corp / Fitness Singles. Please include your username and email address with your payment. Our address is:
e-Unity Corp/ Fitness Singles
257 S Shore Drive
Buffalo, NY 14219
Your membership will be upgraded to Premium status after payment has been received and the check has been cleared at the bank.
Once your credit card has been charged, your order is non-refundable, and your subscription will auto-renew until you decide to cancel.
If you cancel, your subscription will remain active for the remainder of the time period for which you paid, but your subscription will not auto-renew at the end of that time period. Cancellation request must be received at least 24 hours before auto renewal date.
If you purchase a monthly subscription on January 5th and then cancel your subscription on January 20th, you will still be able to connect with other subscribers until February 5th.
You can cancel your subscription at any time by clicking on “My Account” in the top menu, then clicking on “Cancel Paid Subscription” next to “Subscription Status”. Fitness Singles does not prorate unused portions of subscriptions.
Cancellation of paid subscription returns your profile to free membership after the time period for which you paid expires. Your profile is still viewable by other members but you lose the ability to initiate messages to members who are of interest to you. You can remain a free member as long as you like and upgrade your membership again at any time if you see someone to whom you would like to send a message.

Thanks for your help in preserving the welcome environment that continues to be so important to our members and a driving factor of Fitness Singles’ continuing success!
There are a variety of reasons which may cause this. Make sure you’ve done everything in the list below to improve your chances of being noticed.
- Post a profile photo — It’s no secret, people want to talk with people they can see!
- Update your bio — This is the most important part of your profile! Putting a little extra thought into this section will pay off.
- Be Creative! — Make your profile and emails stand out from the rest. Be descriptive and detailed about who you are and what you like!
Using the Hide Profile feature prevents your profile from coming up in new searches. Existing contacts will still be able to view your profile and send you messages. To turn this feature on, go to My Account > Account Settings. Next to “Hide profile”, select “Yes”.
Since it’s free to keep your profile on Fitness Singles, we recommend you hide your profile instead. Hiding your profile prevents it from being seen by other members and allows you to reactivate at a later time. To hide your account click “My Account” from the top menu then click “Hide Profile”. If you still want to remove your profile, simply click “Remove Profile” in the “My Account” section.

Viewed My Profile
“Viewed My Profile” is a fun section which allows you to see who’s been checking out your profile. The page is automatically sorted by the most recent viewings first. Click here to see who has viewed your profile.
“Show Interest” is a quick and easy way to show someone that you’re interested in them and break the ice. Press “Show Interest” on a member’s profile and a message will be sent to their inbox on your behalf. Prior to sending the message you will have an opportunity to read the prepared text. Please note that you are only allowed to use this feature once per member.
Whenever you save a profile, it is stored in “Profiles I Saved” under the “Connections” section. You can view members who have saved your profile by clicking “Saved My Profile”. To liven things up a bit, the member whose profile you have saved will be able to see that you have saved their profile. Many members use this as an indirect way of “showing interest.”
